    On Friday I finally signed my contract.
    Even though the start date was wrong *sigh*.
    She then said that I would really probably stay after my 12 weeks.

    I got quite excited.
    Not a dream job but I'm actually enjoying the job.

    Yesterday I got fired. Before my 12 weeks end.
    Something with them having to cut 200 hours.

    I am devistated.
    Can someone please just come and shoot me, get me out of this miserable life, as I am so done with living.
    I just can't...

    *signing off*

    Sorry to hear about your job Nathalie, it sounds completely insane. And sadistic on their part, honestly.


    I've been feeling a bit suffocated with university stuff since January. There are too many presentations and small projects all of a sudden(next to the regular workload), to make up for the lack of physical lessons(there's only distance learning for this period...at least I don't have to pay for public transport). And I hate giving presentations so much, even more so in dutch.

    Agreed, that sounds absolutely awful. I'm so sorry to hear, Nathalie

    And hugs for you, Kossu It sounds tough, but I hope you'll pull through it ^^

    Me, I'm putting some work back into my portfolio website, so I can start applying for somewhere new to be... I've been really miserable for a while now and getting absolutely fed up with my situation at work. I hate getting on public transport so much and I'm sick and tired of the circumstances around my job. My only(!) colleague and I don't mix, I can't work from home and I've had enough of being blamed for everything our predecessors failed to sort out. It's just... oof. I want something else

    A lot of people seem to be struggling right now. I hope spring brings better things for us

    Aw, thanks Kanu.

    I hope things will start looking up for you with your job. It sounds very stressful and frustrating, even more so if the environment is so toxic.

    This...seems to be a painfully familiar theme nowadays. I just don't get it. That kind of treatment is so terrible and unfair for anyone on a new position.



    As for me...I've been trying to relax after a terrible day and I just got a call for some news that in another universe I'd be happy about, but now I just feel sick. Nothing I didn't expect would happen someday, but still a shock.
