  • Updates

    Look like no luck with the job I went after.

    I am looking at doing a placement and put my name forward (don’t know how many other people are going down this route) to try and get back on the job ladder.

     

    As for Facebook I am still trying to set up a reunion

    Doing a reunion for people I went to nursery,   if I did a group thing,     how many people would I remember probably two at the most

    First school and junior school  I got more of a chance,   since 95% went onto the same secondary school,    a form reunion could be possible,  but with someone like me setting one up the chances are zero ‘the weird one,  misunderstood etc.    probably now people would realise about disability more.

    no nice to make fun of people who are different.     a lot of people have grown up now their have left school,   gone on to university and finished hopefully in employment,   if their are lucky enough to be in a relationship and got married had kids etc,   even more so.

  • first job interview for a long time and also still sticking with Xanga.

    I had a job interview last week.

    It was a complete mess,   nobody was there to greet meet.    I was not even on the list.

    I did get interview for the job,   but the people had a dig at cv and my huge gap in my employment history.    Who did my CV I explained that we are unemployed for a while we have to go to places to get help.

    I was even asked about college to have something to add on my cv recent history.

     

    I did have a practice interview a couple of months ago on a course,  improving cv, health and safety,  office risk assignment.     My best section was what not to do with in a job inteview and what to do  (this was on another thing one to one)   the person thought I was a bit strange with some of the things I came out with what not to.

    One course I drew someone with a ballon and got asked why.    I said don’t go out clubbing to the earlier hours in the morning and go in your clubbing gear straight to the interview.

     

    Not having a job interview in two years I thought I did quite well.

  • Cuba and Xanga

    Well been back since Saturday after having another good holiday in Cuba for the 3rd year running.

    We have decided to try somewhere different for summer 2015 or go back in Europe on holiday.

    So far we have looked at Aruba (never been)

    back to Greece since we not been since 2005 (  if we like the cruise in January) we may try a European cruise.

     

    Did I met in Cuba who I fancy,  maybe or maybe not,    did I dance with any female Cubans (nope)

    Did I get kiss,    cheek is how we do it,    sexy with beard one said (okay it stays on)  wait or until Sheffield Wednesday win their next match which hopefully will be tonight.

    Did we get remembered in the hotel,   we stayed in,    yes by a lot of the staff and some of the entertainment team.

     

    As for the job hunting,   could be better,   waiting to get in touch with an advisor who helps people with disabilities get into work (well tries)

     

    As for Xanga I did have a few dreams on holiday,  that the front page was different and we had Xanga 1.0 how Xanga used to be before the change.   (this was even before Facebook, Twitter and Myspace were popularly)     I did get asked do I use Facebook on holiday (as we did not have Internet access, parents said I was missing Internet access,  someone thought this meant Facebook)   I said I prefer the older stuff (meaning Xanga but did not mention Xanga.)

  • I had a dream that I met the Xanga Team

    It always amazing that when you had a dream,  you forget most of it.

    I was given a guided tour of Xanga,    it was like is a newspaper factory.     I dreamt that each had a name badge to say who there was.      I dreamt there are eight people working at Xanga.

    8 people working at Xanga in my dream.

    I cannot remember who greeted me.

     

    Xanga offices were big in my dreams,     even though there were 10 computer desks free.    Xanga is going to be re launch in my dreams.

     

    I asked all sorts of questions and did a bit of blogging on Xanga 2.0 or was it Xanga 3.0

  • left Facebook Xanga groups

    So I left both of the Xanga groups on Facebook

     

    It reminds me of the days of Xanga vs Myspace in 2005-2008-2009

    Facebook possibly in 2007-2011

    I have tried Google+ but cannot seem to find anybody who I know in real life (maybe not that popularly,   was never one of the popularly children in secondary school,   misunderstood,  maybe may fault some of the time)

    Same for Facebook.   I think a few people would and are looking for me on Facebook,   just out of interested what I am doing.      I am not one of these people would add everybody I went to secondary school,    even though I would dearly love to set up a form reunion in 2015 or 2020.

    I think it a lot easier now days to set up a reunion,   but past memories might hurt one or two of us,   or forgive and forgot.     Forgiven one lad who use to bully me.    often wondered what ever happened to JH, TM, AB and a few others.

    I have tried Linkedin the last few days and never understood it

  • Xanga and the future

    So nearly one year ago we heard that Xanga could be closing and we were trying to raise the funds to move into Xanga 2.0

    I was excited to how we made the funds.

    I often wondering what will happen to Xanga in the future as we reach the 1st year of Xanga 2.0.

     

    How many people work at Xanga now?

     

    I had a dream about going on the cruise we were greeted in Spanish in one of the countries we are visiting,  I think I was being chatted up :) by one of the locals.

  • Holiday in Turkey

    Just had a week in Turkey :)    did I meet anybody (maybe a nice Turkish female)  nope

    I did not take any photos but did buy some postcards :)

     

    Staying at Marmaris at a hotel,   we went to Marmaris for the day a while ago when we to Greece, Rhodes for holiday,  it has changed Marmaris cannot remember the part we went to for the day since it was a long time ago.

    We went to Icmeler for the day as well (well for a few hours,    there was a market,  but because it seem beginning of the season,  not much happening)

    Thinking about going back to Turkey in 2015  but looks like back to Greece for the 1st time since 2005.

  • What is happening with Xanga?

    Xanga has certainly changed since last year,   when it was announced it was close to closing,     we had the fun raising to save Xanga.

    Is there any word for the Xanga Team about updates.       Xanga should have been in the news about re-launching as Xanga 2.0.

    I miss a lot of Xangans who I used to read,  who probably want to blog on Xanga and cannot do so.

    I know there is F***book but this has changed a lot.

     

    As for mu health worries I have joined another CBT group,  a group session,     still worrying a lot about the big c word.
