Job's and Apartments

Well things are looking up for us here. I (Mel) have a job and we move into an apartment tomorrow.

Last tuesday I have two interviews. One for a pharmaceutical job (boring) and one for a haircare formulation chemist (exciting). I got the pharmaceutical job before I even went for the interview for the haircare job. The interview went well and the job sounded much better so made sure the guy knew how keen I was. He couldn't hire me without permission from his bosses tho, so asked if he could have til the next day. He rang the next morning to say I had the job unofficially but it wouldn't be starting for a few months so I should take the other job and they would get back to me when they needed me. I therefore accepted the pharmaceutical job to start on friday (this was wednesday). On thursday afternoon, the marketing manager of the haircare company phoned to ask for a second interview. I told them the situation and arranged to go in that afternoon. Met with him and the GM at 4pm and got the job to start mid feb. So then had to ring the pharmaceutical company back and turn down the job. Wasn't very fun, but am happy with my choice.

Have also got a tiny apartment in the city which we move into tomorrow. Its in Bowen Hills, right by the Hospital, bus and train stations. Its a 3km walk into town (not likely in the heat). Right by the Inner City Bypass which is good for getting to my job. You can have a look at it as Our apartment is on the 4th floor and is a style C. Everyone is welcome to come stay!
