Procrastination Central

That's me. I've got one more week to prepare myself for my assessment. Two weeks ago, I had three. Every day I've told myself, "I really need to start to read up on things, and think how to match my skills to those required for the position". Every day I've told myself, "I'll do it tomorrow". Every day, I've found something else to do, or read.

This weekend, I'd set myself a simple task: to update my cv. Needless to say, I haven't done it. I did read the organisation's annual report, but I don't think I took anything in. It was boring as hell, as these things normally are. I've earmarked a few more articles and reports to read in the next few days, but whether I'll find the time...Oh well. I hope I get the chance to work on the cv at the office tomorrow.

I'm meeting with Tinny tomorrow night. I'm hoping that after our talk, I'll have a better idea of what I'll need to know and do at the assessment, and calm down a little. 6 Days...should be enough to get ready. Hope they will be...

Just saw Gone in 60 Seconds on TV. That's one Chris Eccleston film I won't be adding to the collection soon.

I'll join you in procrastination. I have an interview tomorrow, which seems okay, but isn't thrilling. I've done nothing whatsoever, not even print out the spec.
Aug. 14th, 2005 09:32 pm (UTC)
Oh dear. But you do sort of have some rough idea, I hope?
Aug. 14th, 2005 09:36 pm (UTC)
Yeah some. A sort of PA job that isn't really and I would have to organise all the social events. I'm not sure about that bit.
Aug. 14th, 2005 09:44 pm (UTC)
If that's the only bit you're unsure of, I wouldn't worry about it now...I'd save it for when I actually had to, you know...do it. But surely, it can't be that hard?
Aug. 14th, 2005 09:45 pm (UTC)
I'm not one of those people who is naturally inspiring. I could do the organising, but enthusing people, not really. I am a shite, but attentive hostess.

Good luck today!

Thank you!

That's alright, Chris said he himself was crap in it and so was the film.

I don't know that he was crap in it, exactly -- it's just that the role could have been filled by anyone, and I really couldn't see why the production team thought they should have a Mancunian do it. Having the villain of the piece speak in a Northern accent really didn't add anything of value to what was basically a caricature. But Chris...well, he delivered his lines and held his gun convincingly enough, so 'crap', nah. Just not very interesting, IMO.

Artists are always the most critical of their own work. I agree with your assessment of him in it.

Het enige dat je aan voorbereiding moet doen is dit boek lezen:

dr. Jack J.R. van Minden: Alles over assessment centers

Helpt geweldig!

Dank je. Ik heb Assessment Doen van Bas Kok en Ferry de Jongh van kaft tot kaft gelezen, en weet dus nu wel ongeveer wat me te wachten staat -- helemaal nu ik gisteren nog met Tinny om de tafel gezeten heb en mijn arbeidsverleden heb doorgespit. Vooropgesteld dat ik me de komende avonden nauwgezet aan mijn huiswerk zetten kan, zal het maandag best gaan...hoop ik.

Ben je nu al terug van vakantie? Was 't leuk? We moeten gauw ons winkel-uitje plannen!

Het was geweldig. Heerlijk weer en weer veel bergtoppen gezien. Wanneer kan jij? Een van de komende zondagen misschien?
Aug. 16th, 2005 11:22 am (UTC)
Niet aankomende, maar die daarop...ik heb zo'n donkerpaars vermoeden dat ik dan, hoe dan ook, wel een verzetje kan gebruiken!

Short message re opening two paragraphs - get up and GO AND DO SOMETHING USEFUL WOMAN!! Procrastinate no further!

Love from cw!! xxxxx

Yes, Wombat.

My session with Tinny last night was helpful in that it's given me more of an idea of the sort of questions they're likely to ask, the type of answers they're looking to get, and how I can best prepare myself for these...

I'll be swotting like I've never swotted before the next couple of nights!

My very own icon! Thank you...how cute! I love it! It's gorgeous...

::smooches you silly::

Did you have fun in the States? You must have done-- I'll look forward to reading all about it soon, but first, I've got this assessment nut to crack.

We must meet again in real life, by the way!

We so must. We'll make it happen, too, I promise!
