Yesterday I got an email from a job I applied for, they want me to do a telephone interview with them on May 3rd. I'm nervous, especially as the last graduate scheme I set my heart on didn't happen, but it was so nice to get a chance to progress with this. It's an Assistant Director role in an after school school that gives extra English and Maths tutoring. I actually had to check out the company online to make sure it wasn't a scam because it sounded so perfectly tailored to my past experience with my teaching and retail work. If I get through the phone interview it will be on to the assessment day, then (if I'm lucky) a job. The good news is that their turnaround for giving applicant any answers is about 3 days, as oppose to the weeks I waited for the result of the last one.
The rest of my family is away in Florida for a holiday, having the house to myself is such a relief! I did some baking today as I had the kitchen at my disposal, leaving me with some truly awesome chocolate muffins:
Though (/because) they are mightily delicious I think I will have to take they to work tomorrow, otherwise I see myself devouring the batch in short order and feeling ill.
The other day I stayed up until 4am watching the entire third season of Mad Men, despite the fact that I had work at 9am. This was stupid of me. So why am I having trouble convincing myself that it's a bad idea to do the same thing tonight with season 4?
