I need a job

I've gone into find a job overdrive. I've spent almost the whole day scouring the internet for jobs, but there aren't a whole lot out there. At least not easy to apply for online ones. I've filled out online application forms for B&Q and Blockbuster and sent off a CV to some agency offering data imput work. I've checked the website for a few big shops like Smiths and Boots, as well as some cinemas, but they all say apply to your local store. I'm going to have to do that, if I want a job there. I don't really want a job there though, I want a proper job, I just need money! Once the printer is installed again (the computer got a virus last week and we had to wipe it) I'll print off some letters and send them off, that way it'll save me the trouble of ringing up, I hate talking on the phone.

I suppose I should really be looking for a better job than working in a shop (especially since I'm pretty sure I'd be terrible at it!) but I don't want to choose a job that's going to turn into a career that's going to be the thing I do for the rest of my life, that sounds far too depressing! I've no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life yet, I'll decide that later.

Here's something cool though, on the B&Q website, where the online application form is, before you fill in the form you've got to answer loads of questions about yourself and then it tells you what sort of person you are. I bent the truth slightly, to make me sound more confident, but I only got a 1 on extrovertedness (or whatever they called it. They had a load of other categories too, I got a 7 in everything else (the average for all of them was apparantly 6) It's fun, go to to try it, you don't need to apply for a job, just click like you're going to.

I saw Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban last night, it was really good. much better than the other two. I think there were a few things that they should have explained better though. Poeple that hadn't read the book didn't notice of course, and people that had already knew the things, but still, iit would have been better if they had been included. I don't want to give too much away in case someone is reading this who hasn't seen it or read the book, I just thing they missed too much out is all. Like the Marauder's map, it is never explained who made it, and I think that's pretty important. I wonder what they'll do with the next one though, they'll have to miss out more than half of it, make the film 5 hours long or make it into two films. That would be my favourite option.

I'm probably going to see The Day After Tomorrow on friday, hopefully that will be good, but it got some pretty mixed reviews, I'll see when I see it, I guess.
Oh yeah, I bought Return of the King last week too, it's just as good watching the second time! Some time, when I've got no energy to do anything else, I think I'm going to sit down and watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy in one go. Could be fun. I've got to say though, although i know a lot of people dissagree, I don't think Return of the King is the best one, I prefered Fellowship of the Ring, that's my fave.

I read a good book the other day too, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. I'm not going to tell you what it's about, but it's really good, everyone should read it!

Anyway, that's it for now!
