So turns out my first day at the job last week was also my last. It was quite obvious when I arrived there on Wednesday that there wasn’t really any work for me to do. I was delegated to stuffing brochures, making photocopies, and by the end of the day I was typing up personal letters for the manager. The recruitment agency called me about 10 minutes after I had left and was walking home to tell me that I didn’t need to come back because the work had been finished. Which was incredibly irritating, but now I get to go to Minnesota for Thanksgiving so I am pretty excited about that.
My parents offered to fly me there (and back, had to make sure they got me a return ticket, hehe) so I will be in Minnesota from November 24th to December 3rd. Unfortunately, Dan won’t be coming with, he’s used up his vacation for the year so this will just be a nice visit to see some family and friends.
Dan and I had a really good weekend, we stayed with Annika in Portmouth. Dan, Steve, and I drove there on Friday evening. Dan and Steve went and saw a band, Alexisonfire, while Annika and I hung out before meeting up at a pub after the gig. Dan and I hung around with Annika and left Sunday afternoon after a nice, relaxing weekend.
So there’s a quick update for you! I have an interview tomorrow and have had a few phone interviews, so wish me luck, hoping to get something set up for when I come back from the states ❤
