A New Day… A New Job… A New Hell

So yeah, I’m not longer under the “Unemployed” bracket, my life took a sudden turn and I was offered a temp position doing data entry for a company called Ventura, an outsourcing company based in Rotherham.

The offer itself is through an agency, who I’ve briefly used once before, it was short notice too but that’s fine because I’m in need of £1200 of becoming broke, short of being a gay porn star I’ll do anything for money at the moment. Start time was supposed to be 7.30am which I wasn’t looking forward to due to me going to sleep at least 4.30am every morning, tried to get an early night, didn’t get much sleep but I managed to get some and woke up at 6am this morning, set off for work at half past due to it being a 40 minute drive and didn’t want to chance getting stuck in traffic.

Maybe You Should’ve Stuck To Rehab

So everyone pretty much knows by now that Amy Winehouse, aged 27 died Saturday afternoon around 4pm in London. The real sad thing is everyone expected it to happen sooner or later which is pathetic for anyone in their 20’s. Now I have my opinions on it, I’m not closed minded, or ignorant, this is just what’s in my mind, I can’t help my feelings on the matter anymore than anyone else can.

So if this particular piece is something some of you may not agree on, *shrugs* get over it.

Having reported health issues as early as three years ago, her own father said she was ill due to chain smoking and taking crack cocaine. What really pisses me off is the sympathy she’s getting, I’ve seen it plastered all over Facebook and various other places, yeah she was a talented musician but aside from that, a horrible human being in my opinion, I don’t expect everyone to agree with me but this is what I’ve always thought about her.

Under Two Weeks Until My Birthday *SIGH*

I’m sure most people get excited about their birthday being less than two weeks away, mines in 11 days to be exact. Normally I’m pretty excited for my birthday, but not this year. It’s just starting to feel like another day to me now, every year I’d go out with the same people I’ve been out with in previous years and we all know how it turns out, you probably spend about two hours with the entire group then you all get split up, before you know it there’s just you and the friend whose house your stopping in Sheffield.

Parent’s Aren’t Always Right… But Sometimes They Are

I just want to take a few moments of your time to discuss an issue that I had once been cursed with, a dis-order, now I have mentioned many times throughout this blog that I am overdrawn and I’m sure many of you are wondering how I got myself into so much debt, I know there are certainly people I know thinking, “God damn, Pete used to be so rich, how did this happen?!”

Well I’ll tell you, I haven’t touched on this issue yet and it’s a dear one to me. I suppose it all started when I was nothing but a child, say around four or five. I’m sure you’re all aware by now that there is no such thing as Santa, but back then you were adamant that there was such a man. We had it drilled into our heads at a very young age that if you are a naughty child, you will be getting no presents from Santa at Christmas, some of you may have been told that you’ll just get a lump of coal.

Unemployment Isn’t What It’s Cracked Up To Be

My Bored Face

It’s been two full weeks now since I walked out on my job, I was hoping to have another job by now, I guess I was too cocky and thought I could walk straight into another job, but things do not look good, I don’t mind the fact I’m overdrawn, but I have Leeds Festival in a months time, I at least need a bit of money coming in before I go. Considering I haven’t paid my friend for the ticket yet either!

Bring Back Capitol Punishment!

Felt I had to write something, if only just to get it out of my head. I saw a couple of status updates on Facebook about an assault that happened at 4:20pm in Rainworth in Mansfield, a village about a half hour drive from my house. Checked out the local news report: Continue reading “Bring Back Capitol Punishment!”

Cold Calling – Why I Hate It And Why It’s Ruined My Life

I am currently working on a book based on my life experiences so far, the first chapter in my book (And up to now the only chapter I’ve written, I’m lazy) is all about the different call centre’s I have worked in over the past year. As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m currently unemployed and that is due largely in part to the outbound sales job I had working for a company called Voice Marketing, selling gas and electric for E.ON Energy Solutions. One of the six biggest gas and electric suppliers in the United Kingdom.

Born In The Wrong Decade

I’ve always thought this, even from a young age.

I was born in 1985 in Oldham, England, moved to Chesterfield in North East Derbyshire at the age of 3, still living with my parents at age 25. There’s nothing I want more than to move out but I can barely afford to buy petrol to run my car, my overdraft in my bank is £1500, of which I am currently overdrawn by £1100.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not so stupid to think that there wasn’t debt decades ago, but I doubt it’s as easily achievable as it is today.

A Lifetime of Stargate

I can’t think of a better thing to talk about for my first post than probably my favourite television show(s) of all time, Stargate.

When I was 8 or 9 years old I remember seeing a poster for an upcoming film, I was well into sci-fi at that age, I loved anything with the word star in it, whether it was Star Trek or Star Wars. My dad took me to see this film Stargate in 1994, starts off in Giza, Egypt in 1928 and we get our first glimpse of the large metal circle, nine chevrons, a whole load of symbols around the edge.  We soon cut to a young girl who manages to get her self an amulet, the Eye of RA.
