For any Australians aspiring to be surgeons, or for anyone who's interested anyway, the book Never Say Die by one of Australia's leading head and neck surgeons Chris O'Brien is worth a read. It's light but it's nice and enjoyable - with him writing about his life, and becoming a patient himself.

I have a job, so I will no longer be spending my days being completely unproductive and with no cash coming in, eating out of boredness and getting through every book hidden in this house.

So I start on Tuesday, and its a full-time job, 8am to 5pm each day, right next to the gym, and its a beautiful new office. I am so relieved I can satisfy my workaholic needs again, especially in a pretty environment doing the business administration work I'm good at.

And at last I'll have paychecks coming my way again. So I don't have to be so stingy.

It's a cold day today, and not so nice to be going into the city in.

Applying for jobs has to be one of the most boring and frustrating tasks I have experienced. Putting aside endlessly having to send off repeat emails to countless jobs, it doesn't help when you get replies from ignorant employers. I have had so much trouble with my CV because my grade 12 certificate equivalents are two Diplomas. I have had several replies to my applications stating that they are not looking for applicants who are studying in or have a University degree. It's making it all the more difficult to find a job to occupy me until February when I can start university and find a part-time job. And I desperately need a job to get out of the crowded house I am staying in at the moment. Running after two young children all day long drives me crazy.

I set up another bank account for my savings today and I am pleased with that. Saving money is hardly ever successful when its in your main account that you're always withdrawing from. I always end up spending it. Picked up a guide road to NSW roads and driving. I really, really need to get that done.
