Is it really November already? Let’s see, it was completely dark at 5 and it’s getting colder, fall is making its exit, yes, it is indeed November. I have been in the UK for 3 months now 🙂
Last Thursday I had an appointment at a recruitment center, I ended up getting a call from my recruiter about 2 hours after my appointment asking if I wanted to start work next week. I said yes of course, it’s a temporary position in the marketing department of a large contractor in Bournemouth so I’m pretty excited about that. I’m not sure how long it’s going to last though which kind of sucks, but I start Wednesday so hopefully I’ll get some more info then.
I am trying to keep my options open since I’m not sure how long this assignment will last. I had a phone interview today with another bank, that went well and I was invited to the second stage of interviewing. I also have another phone interview tomorrow for a position that starts in January. I am a little bummed though because this current job kind of threw a wrench in my plans to come home for Thanksgiving. I’m just going to have to play it by ear and see what I can work out.
In celebration of my new found employment, Dan took me out to dinner that night to a great Italian place called Ask, I had an amazing seafood risotto. I also did a little shopping on Friday for some new work clothes. While I was walking back to the flat, I saw that there were pumpkins at the corner fruit and vegetable stand so I bought a little pumpkin to carve.
Well, I was actually more interested in getting the pumpkin seeds to roast. And then once I had the pumpkin cleaned out, I thought, hey, I’d rather eat this pumpkin than carve it. So I made pumpkin soup as well.
On Saturday, Fiona had invited me to her friend, Rich’s birthday party, which happened to be Hollywood themed. So I quickly threw together a Lindsay Lohan in Court costume (pics to come eventually, haha).
Oh, I signed up for NaNoWriMo, basically for the month of November you try to write a 50,000 word novel. Thought it would be kind of fun to do, let’s see if I can actually write that much, haha.
