That is really so cheeky. How enfuriating :evil:

Being thousands of miles away from my partner and cos of evil bureaucratic processes that we have no control over, not being able to do anything about it or know when we'll see each other again. :cry:

Rainbow-rano that sounds tough I hope you find some way through.

1. My trust banning access to clinpsy.com
2. But I guess it doesn't matter as despite telling me for months that a permanent version of my job would be advertised (and repeated reassurances that it will be in next weeks bulletin and it will be sorted out this week, and they would like me to apply as I'm doing really well in the job) I'm now a few weeks before end of my contract and nothings been advertised. I feel let down and more than a bit stupid, not to mention financial worries and the impact this has on my family.

You can ask your trust to unblock this site, as it is a legitimate means of professional networking and contains no inappropriate content.

The other thing doesn't have as easy a solution, sadly :( How long have you been in post? I sympathise, as I've had projects 'at the top of the agenda with commissioners and next to be funded' month by month for years, and it is even more frustrating than just being told it isn't going to happen.

I'm frustrated as I've just had my vacancies 'reappraised in the new financial climate', and it looks likely they will be absorbed. That would leave me 3.7 staff (including myself), of whom 1.5 are on maternity leave, to do the work which was intended for a team of 6-9 WTE in the original documents....

Monday mornings.

Particularly when they involve a long commute to work in the dark... and home in the dark! :(

Ha - you presumed you could have a social life while doing a doctorate?! :D Mine is long gone, sadly, and I'm a first year!

On that note - having to write a research proposal in the first term of first year is my rant :evil:

Maybe you should pretend that you have def got an interview and 'celebrate' with lots of wine/chocolate/ ice cream*. Alternatively you can decide that you haven't got it and 'commiserate' with wine/chocolate/ice cream*. Either way involves lots of wine/chocolate/ice cream*. **

*delete according to preference (or have all)
**not that I advocate the use of alcohol/ comfort eating.

My rant is feeling fed up because of the snow- I couldn't get in today (having struggled to get home yesterday) and now I feel guilty for letting clients down. Especially after gap over chirstmas etc. However I have finally got round to finishing a couple of reports!

Loula - I wouldn't worry about it - the people I know who made it in found that none of their clients showed up ;-)

I'm so over guilt anyway...

Re: Wine - I recommend cider... or lager... and lots of it - defo in on the celebrate/commiserate/who cares? idea though as I'm waiting for a job offer/rejection :drunken:

Having to do all my reading and preparation and write up sessions with constant drilling right outside my office! It was bad enough for Christmas but now work is being done on the other side of my desk (which faces the window). I still have a headache now!
