We’re one week on and I’ve had to contend with another job disappointment. To be fair, I suspected it wasn’t going to get me anywhere but it still feels shit. I’m sure I’ll get there one day but I just need to work harder to get there. Obviously, I still need to learn stuff and get to a place where I’m standing out. It just feels like there are so many hills to climb in order to get the very basic job these days. And it doesn’t help that everyone I’m competing against is not only younger but also just brilliant. I can’t help but feel that I wasted the last few years and should have been getting ready for this earlier. Anyway, whatever happens with my job search I’ve always got books to escape into. Here’s what I’ve been up to this week.
- The Fireman by Joe Hill
- Vintage Penguin books
I’m still managing to be fairly strict with my spending this week but I have let myself buy a few vintage Penguin books from eBay. I’ve been using my vintage books in a lot of my Instagram photos lately and have been loving it. So I’m back on the wagon and getting more and more. The old school Penguin books really are the best of the best though. It’s worth a slight splurge.
- Netflix binges: RuPaul’s Drag Race
Who is Murdocal? A casual critic who is a little bit too obsessed with pop culture. A young woman who swears and rants much more than she knows she should whilst trying to make her way in an adult world she isn't prepared for. A not as recent as she'd like literature graduate who, between job applications and subsequent rejections, has turned to the internet to fight the boredom and review the shit out of everything.
