Yesterday I went to work as usual, emailed the girl I met
at the weekend, got in this morning and founda reply.
She lives in another city but seems keen to see me again, yay!. I shall proabably not see her for about a fortnight when we may go hiking with some other people, the prospect is very pleaseing.
After work I went to the UCD climbing wall, trained for about three hours, I am beginning to get some nice finger strength together. There were not that many people at the wall last night. All in all a pretty boring day, I didn't give much time for contemplation.
Went home to bed, ate instant noodles
and toast and went to sleep.
update : 18:26
Well so far I have manged to fax my cv to edinburgh, yay!
I got an email from the people saying that it is likley that I may get an interview irrespective of whether or not
they get my application as they all remember me from the internship
I did with them back in 1997
I managed to email my CV to 7 recuitment people in Dublin
have to see what they say tommorrow !
and Claire has invited me down to Cork this coming weekend
, now i've not made up my mind whether i will go or not but i think there is a definite chance that I might end up in that neck of hte world, lets see how the weather and my strength of willpower hold up
(umm I won't be taking bets on this one).
I emaied everyone I said I would, emma's email address didn't work and I couldn't find bernards. I have yet to mail rob, I might leave that until tommorrow.
I am waiting fro my friend to install mandrake
on his machine so that I can install MySQL
, then I get to try to play with the foxpro files. Wow, having two jobs really keeps you busy, I wonder if I am going to get paid for ny of this work, at least I get to code
for some of the day, it makes up for the sould destroying work that is data entry
