Goodbye student life. Hello job hunt.

As most of you dear readers know I have just finished my psychology degree. (Hurray!)

That means:

-Jamming a ridiculous amount of stuff I’ve accumulated this past year into 2 suitcases and a carry-on (which may or may not have involved some tears of frustration, repeatedly wishing I had Hermione Granger’s “everything-magically-fits” handbag, and some of my beloved things inevitably going in the bin 😦 ).

-Taking a taxi to the airport while secretly hoping it wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg (I was actually very lucky taxi-wise. I got the nicest driver in the world and we talked about everything under the sun during that half-hour trip. When we got to the airport he only charged me half of what he should have 😀 What a lovely way to say goodbye to my uni life).

-After a rather turbulent flight and bumpy landing I had finally arrived in Northern Ireland. Home at last! I was so happy I hadn’t lost any luggage and even managed to catch up on my reading on the flight (It’s taking me forever to finish reading Lady Midnight because of everything that’s been going on). Best of all, my family was waiting for me at the airport, including my nephew and niece who I love to the moon and back!

So now I’m back home, living with my parents and looking for a job (why can’t I just read and blog for a living?!).

This morning I had a job interview at a toy shop, but I doubt I’ll get an offer. I had a feeling that the lady who did the interview wanted to get rid of me as soon as possible, which is never a good sign! (It wasn’t because I smelled or anything… I checked afterwards!). My parents said it’s probably because she had already chosen someone else for the job and didn’t want to waste her time… It’s not an ideal situation, but at least I got some practice at doing interviews, right?

So after this morning’s fiasco I went for a walk in the park with my parents. We made some new friends and took a bunch of blurry photos of them 🙂

Just wanted to keep you posted and share a little about my life with you all 🙂

    Congratulations finishing school! Wow you live in N. Ireland?! That is on the tippy-top of my list of places to visit. I haven’t traveled out of the U.S. very much.

    Good luck on the job hunt, you will find something soon!
