So it's been a hot minute since I've been here. Hi. Hello. Sorry.

My mental health still isn't brilliant but it is improving. I had my 6-week review for being back on the meds last weekend and definite improvement but not as much as Doctor would have hoped. On the same dosage for another 6 weeks, then another review and we'll take it from there.

Last Saturday was a Raintown gig down in Shoreham by Sea near Brighton. A lovely little venue and a sold out gig - which considering it was their first time playing down on the south coast was bloody amazing! And so many people seeing them for the first time. I had a little reserved sign with my name on the front-row centre seat and I got a little shout-out from Paul at the end of the gig for how much I travel around to see them.

MONDAY I had an interview for a permanent job in Birmingham. The back end of last week, an agency I used to work for called me out of the blue to see what my situation was. We chatted for a while - and apparently, there's a desperate lack of experienced purchase ledger clerks in the West Midlands right now and they wanted to send my details over to this client. I met with the client Monday afternoon (I had the day off anyway) and I got feedback yesterday. They want to see my for a second interview - they're calling back two of the five interviewees and specifically said they want to see me first. AWESOME!

Like I said to both Facilities & Finance bosses; I don't want to leave. I love this job, I love the team, I've worked really hard to build up relationships with my suppliers. But there is currently no opportunity for a permanent position and I would be an idiot to turn down a potential permanent job when it literally came knocking on my door.
I'm not actively looking for another job and if this doesn't work out, I'll keep coming in til they tell me not to.

I think there was something else but I appear to have lost like... an hour and a halfs time somewhere this evening. I started writing this at 18:33, its now 20:12... I'm zoning out quite badly still. ugh.

I wanted to share this with you all- thousands of old 78s are being digitized and uploaded to archive.org and now available for listening completely free and legally- collection here, article with info about the project here. Eventually 400k songs will be available.

TV-wise, I'm not thrilled with the direction Wynonna Earp took last night, but not surprised by it either. Loved Killjoys though, especially for the flashback and also D'Av's character development. Stitchers is still decent enough a watch, totally as expected for a Freeform (former ABC Family) show. Midnight, Texas has been keeping my interest as well- probably due to it being adapted from books there's quite a bit of world building that's been being revealed in dribs and drabs but I've liked what it's shown so far.

My remix has been fighting me. I will prevail though. I will.
