in addition to being recruited for oxford and guernsey…… and having submitted 3 more applications…last night at work i saw the the same professor i almost got a job with before has another research position!!!
am i a glutton for punishment?? am i strong enough to play the groveling/interview/begging/presentation/waiting game???
dunno…. but 4 years in one position spells R-U-T…and in my case… surrounded by a hierarchy of egotistical, class conscious xenophobes…it spells something a bit worse.
why all these opportunities now???? don’t have a clue…
even the woman from the agency that i flicked off has emailed me wanting to know if she can work on a temp position for me. it all makes me wonder and i commented to someone that maybe it’s a case that acting uninterested and casual works like reverse psychology??
so, the trip to guernsey is on hold until i see which of the big three i get interviews for and i will have to get the details for the research position and will probably suck it up and apply for that also.
cause what do they say about failure???
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.

Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
