I’m feeling much better today, though I’d prolly feel even better if some pesky mosquito hadn’t been buzz around me all night. How come you can’t sleep through the sound of a mosquito? Damn things.
The interview went kinda well yesterday. I don’t have all the skills they need but the girl from the agency is going to talk to them about me because she thinks the skills I do have are so strong, they might be willing to training me.
I’m ambivalent about this job though. I’m not sure I want to return to a full time serious career position. I’ve been making such great progress with my writing. This is a very serious, very corporate career position. It comes with a very serious, very corporate salary. Part of me feels like I should be pursuing a career, a proper career in an office. To stop dicking around. Another part of me says that I should take my writing seriously or I’ll get nowhere with that.
I tried on running shoes yesterday at the Athlete’s Foot. Strangely enough, the guy said completely different stuff to what everyone else has ever told me about my feet. He said I had high arches. I’ve always thought I had high arches but every other time I’ve been fitted they’ve said I have normal arches. It’s stupid but I’m kinda proud of having high arches. He also said I needed a lot of heel support. I tried on some ASICS 1120s and they felt great but I’d really like a second opinion on this. I’m not investing all that money in a pair of running shoes that aren’t right – I’ve learnt my lesson on that.
Finally, some of my ebay auctions finish today. Hopefully I’ll get lots more bids. I’ve still got more stuff to list too but ebay kept stuffing up yesterday. I should go out for a run I guess instead of sitting around obsessively pressing refresh on my ebay browser.
