Just one thing though. I work/volunteer at a charity called The Personal Support Unit, where we help those who can’t afford a solicitor or don’t want one for whatever reason. We’re completely free and can offer advice, draft documents, attend court hearings, fill out forms… etc. We do have to fundraise our own expenses though, so next week we’re doing a 10k Legal Walk.
I’m going to leave the sponsorship link here, although please don’t feel like I’m pressuring or anything. It’s a charity that I feel very close to and that I owe a lot to so I didn’t feel like I could not mention it.
Right Now I’m…
Listening to: Nothing. It’s getting to the point where I might just delete this question! A new-ish volunteer at the PSU (see above) asked me what music I listened to last week and I had to do the awkward, “Well, uhh, I don’t really… uh” thing that just makes you sound like a moron.
Reading: Ooh, I’m actually doing quite well this week. Let’s see, I finished Atonement by Ian McEwan (which I did not like), The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (which was a pleasant surprise), The Giver by Lois Lowry (which I’m amazed is a kid’s book) and I’m about to finish The Pirates! In An Adventure with the Romantics by Gideon Defoe (which was always going to be good).
I’ve decided that I must be at a TBR pile of 300 books by January 1st 2015. I can read books or throw them out, but any books over that total by that date will be removed. You can check my progress in the box on the sidebar to the right. 23 books to go!
Eating: Umm. I’ve been drinking plenty of fluids, so I’ve had a litre bottle of flavoured water and several cups of tea.
I’ve had a chocolate snowball too…
Watching: Nothing, although I did watch a few episodes of the US version of The Office over the weekend. It’s my ultimate favourite TV show and I can watch it anytime. It’s also absolutely nothing like the Ricky Gervais version, which is always a bonus.
Planning: for my job interview on Friday. I’m really excited about it as it’s a full-day interview with a group work component in the morning, and it’s for a charity that I feel really strongly about.
My mood is going up and down today, but right now I’m feeling quite calm. Oh, actually no. My main mood for today is ‘grateful.’ I feel blessed that my current situation is better than it could have been, that I have friends and family that care about me and that I was able to take a week off to recuperate. I may have to write than on a post-it to remind myself every so often, but it’s true.
Loving: My books. The Pirates! In An Adventure with the Romantics, in particular. It’s so light and fun – I’m pretty sure it could cheer anybody up.
Wanting: Hmm. What do I want? I want to get the job on Friday, that would be nice! That would be more than nice.
I also want to run out and spend lots of money on books, as is always the case when I decide not to buy anymore for a while!
Thinking: How lucky I am, again. It does seem to be a running theme of today, but there are worse themes, right?
Looking forward to: Seeing Lewis at the weekend and going to his friend’s birthday celebration. I’m also looking forward to the PSU’s Legal Walk (see above) and my interview on Friday.
