I've got an interview!!

It's for the museum job I mentioned a few days ago - so excited! Had to phone to arrange a time, and the woman told me to go to the 'entrance on Mushroom Lane'. I love Mushroom Lane, I used to walk down it everyday because, well, who wouldn't want to walk down a road with that name? I used to peek in their staff room. They have a Doctor Who poster up in there.

The museum used to have bees, but they suffered the Great Bee Death... now they have empty hives. And they store my favourite type of rock (mica - it's a rock you can peel) in the kind of trays we had in first school. And the have the most adorable little bug costumes for children to dress up in. And this kitchen area where you can open the drawers and it has all the insects where they might be hiding in your own kitchen. I could rave about it for ages.

This is one of the few times when I can be excited about the specific job and the company, and not just be excited because it's a job in general.

So anyway, it's on 17th November and I literally Can Not Wait.

I can't quite face the possibility that I might not get it, I just have to.

Will have to make sure I don't shout something like 'Oh no! Your poor bees!'... I talk about them every time I go in there usually.

In other news my Nano-ing is going terribly... I've made a start at least, but it'll need some serious work over the next few days for me to not get too far behind.

I have a semi-idea for NaNo! Don't know if it will work. It begins with two people running away to get married, in the middle they travel, and somewhere near the end they dance. But it's not necessarily happy ever after... I'm undecided. And I think it may be fantasy, allowing for more of a conclusion. Fantasy is more interesting to write, and no-one can criticise the inaccuracies that way! I'm not entirely sure about it yet. But it's a beginning, the start of an idea that I can ramble out for quite a few days, I just wonder if it can be extended over 50,000 words.

Applied for a job today. Looks like it would be pretty boring, but it would do just fine for a year or so... if only I could get it! I look forward to that day so I don't have to obsess about such things anymore. What a relief that will be.

Other than that today, like every other day, I have done nothing. Again I state: What an exciting life I lead!

Feeling a bit better about things today. Applied to three 'proper' jobs today. Proper meaning full time and in Sheffield. Doesn't take that much to impress me, but apparently it's still too much for me to succeed.

One of the jobs was for Sheffield Museums & Galleries and I would love it, so I have all of my fingers crossed, and most other body parts too.

Had a couple of vague ideas about what to write for NaNo, but nothing that would really go anywhere. Actually, I did have a decent horror idea, but I don't want to write horror... I think I would be awful at it, and the whole thing is enough of a challenge already!

Will spend more time thinking about it tomorrow. Poetry captures my imagination in a way that often gets me wondering about 'what happens next', so I think I'll get out my giant Pablo Neruda book (and crayons, the thought of that book makes me want to colour in) tomorrow and hope it inspires me.

Off to watch Defying Gravity now. Although I guess it might not be as good watching it at home on my own as it was lying in bed with my boyfriend. Oh, and job emails are coming in, must go and investigate them.
