I am a girl fastly approaching the big 30 and trying not to think about it too much. The title of my journal comes from having to cope with being a grownup - I honestly hate it. I hate job interviews, employment agencies, and especially estate agents. I can't stand filling out 10-page application forms for jobs that a monkey could do and never being given a chance. I can't stand letting agents actually hanging up the phone the second I mention my wife has a dog! And I hate the way that people always try to take advantage of us working in retail or customer care. The things they would do for a few pounds off or a free item are absolutely pitiful - especially as I work in the business of teddybears which makes it seem all the more bizarre.
To sum it up - I wish I was still in Uni and that I could just get paid for learning new stuff. I am good at that. But that's not gonna happen.
Also, I am a born and bred Italian and I hate it. So when you read a lot of bitching in my journal about that, please know I am not racist for racism's sake. I lived there for 23 years and I honestly do not wish that on ANYONE. Unless of course you're a brainwashed, retrograde religious homophobe - in which case it's paradise.
My journal is 95% real life and 5% fandom. That doesn't mean I don't fangirl about stuff, just that I don't write about it - much! But I will comment about it :) I mostly rant about work, pop culture, and things that exasperate me about people. Also, my 2011 has been marred by depression/anxiety and I need you guys to be respectful of that and non-judgmental.
