Ray of light in my darkness

Today, frankly, sucked until this moment. I woke up late (my fault for switching off the alarm), was late for work despite taxi because of horrible traffic, and had almost no money for lunch because of said taxi journey (usually, I would, but as I said, traffic). As for breakfast, forget it. And then I check my inbox to find out that the project manager job I sent my CV for actually got back to me.

*falls over in shock*

Edit
Okay, explaining a bit: this job is in Sidcup, Kent (only 37 minutes from Charing Cross station in London... if you have absolutely no traffic on the road, of course) and on loads of London bus routes. It involves liaising with clients and linguists (by phone and email), monitoring project progress, quality checking the translations, plus admin things like filing, faxing, photocopying, etc. and requires a person with a foreign language degree (check), computer literate (check) and with some experience of working in a translation agency or a translator for a large company (which I sorta do, the CVCE was big). Anyway, EXCITEMENT! This is only the second job I've applied for since working here (the first was a few weeks ago and they never got back to me). It's not like I'm desperately seeking something else, just... keeping my eyes open? Whatever, if I don't get it, I've still got a good job here.

That sounds like a great opportunity to branch out a little bit (project management is such a good thing to have on your CV) and I'm glad the news came as a ray of light in an otherwise crap day. Best of luck with the application; I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. :)


Thanks. I'm trying not to get too ahead of myself (already went and looked at the website I put in the entry and at flats, then told myself to stop being so silly). I have this tendency to invest myself in things that don't materialise and I need to stop doing that.

Hope it works out. Good luck!

Hey! Good to see you and thanks. *hugs*

Sounds like a fun job! I mean, the description includes things like "linguists" and "foreign language" so it's gotta be interesting. Good luck!

Thanks, Alexis! :D *hugs*

Good luck *crosses fingers* now that you don't need a job, you'll get one. More good luck!

Good to see you! Thanks. :)
