Guess I better do the introductory deep and meaningful journal post. Which I will almost certainly get bored of later and delete.
Currently I get paid shite wages to run a high street photo lab, and when my manager gets bored I also get screwed into running the store. (Usually at the same time as running the lab) My younger cousin gets paid more and she works less days and just does filing. I'm being taken the piss out of in a big way. Unfortunately, the only way out of my job right now is to either work on the shop floor in another retail job again, or become a secretary (a proper job according to my dad), neither of which would entice me to crawl out of bed in the mornings.
I'm currently stuck living with my parents, due to current job not paying me enough to afford rent around here. (Gotta love living so near London) I would move, and am very tempted to, but I have a friend here with an eating disorder and more than a few issues, so I don't want to be too far away in case she needs me.
I went to Uni, and quit because I could barely afford the course without getting myself into massive amounts of debt, and it wasn't a guaranteed job at the end of it all.
So.. situation now.
I've got to find a better job. (Ideally involving developing and printing, but failing that I'm looking at computer based jobs)
I've got to move out.
These may go hand in hand.
And more immediately, I need to pass my driving test in a few weeks.
Oh the fun.
