Hi there darlings!
At the moment I am trying to muster up enough enthusiasm to complete a job application, I just can't do it. I feel like I need a big slab of chocolate and someone like Davina McCall sat next to me and encouraging me. Alas the best I could muster is power dressing and watching Scrubs which has kinda helped.
Power dressing is my new thing. When applying for jobs I like to change my outfit to something a bit more formal which inspires me to get my job application head on. To be honest I don't own too many smart items of clothing so really it involves an ill put together outfit and a pair of heels but if it works, it works... right? This is what I'm wearing right now:
|Ignore my face and hair- I need a haircut|
I bought my top yesterday from Primark, my skirt is Topshop and my heels are Marks and Spencers (comfy). I did my top button up so I feel like I'm almost a professional and my skirt always makes me feel as if I'm dressed smartly. Just sitting in such an outfit means I feel better about myself and ready to rock and roll. The other day I managed to bang out two applications and was super pleased with myself.
I'm also applying for jobs which I'm hugely under qualified for, but that is what being a graduate is all about (or so I tell myself). I find amazing jobs and then decide nothing is stopping me applying. All that can happen is a rejection and at least I've gained valuable job application experience, I sometimes feel like I have no bloody clue what to write and my examples of 'helping others' or 'working in a team to achieve goals' seem all a bit pathetic. If only I had saved the world in some way, or if I was brave enough to teach abroad or if I had done some kind of voluntary work. Oh well, a CV is only supposed to be one page anyway...
I did do some exploring/have a new experience yesterday as Lee took me to TGI Friday's which I have never been to before, it was delicious and the restaurant was so fun, also our waitress was super attentive and that always makes it more enjoyable. Here are some picture of our day out in Southampton:

|So much cuteness|
|Had the chicken BLT but couldn't manage more that 5 chips, nightmare|
On a sadder and more frustrating note my blackberry has died. I'm hopefully getting a new one sent for tomorrow. It is surprising how much I miss it! Stupid technology
Does any one else have any job hunting/ application hints? Anyone love a bit of a power dress session?!
