Will work for food

Ignoring problems will not make them go away. So the past few weeks I've been trying to get some stuff done, resulting in the following bad news bulletin.

- The Haarlem restaurant called me, turning me down for being overclassified (I'm sorry but we're only looking for a waiter who doesn't mind filling out a few ordersheets a week, that's all. You'd be bored stiff in a month)
- Due to illness at the unemployment office, my application for the Oegstgeest restaurant has only been sent through YESTERDAY!
- No news yet whatsoever from the Casino
- No new interesting job offers found in the past 2 weeks.
- Got my bankloan approved. Yes, this is bad news, I hate loans.
- The audition at Choy Records turned out to be nothing more than some little punk with recording equipment, wanting you to sing for him in his improvised studio at his parents' place where he still lives. "Sorry, you don't have the sound I'm looking for. You'd be good in musicals and theater though...). And another 10 Euro's plus gas down the drain.

After throwing all my little debts onto one big pile (the loan account), I can finally close my credit card account (with soaring rates!) and have some insight in my financial status. Thanks to increased insurances, all those yearly payments that always hit you in January and the joy of being unemployed, I am currently about 3000 Euro's in the red. Maybe I should start signing myself up for those get-paid-to-test-our-new-unreliable-medication tests.

Don't worry, that was sarcasm.

*hugs* Hopefully things'll go better soon. Though... in all honesty I can't see how that last remark needs to be sarcasm. I mean... I don't have any experience with them or any insight, but couldn't it be a viable alternative, no?

*merely curious if you know more about them*

I don't like the idea of being a human guinea pig. A pharma company makes a new medicine, they THINK it works and that it's safe, they just don't KNOW it yet. So they offer money to people who are willing to test the new stuff. That's how they find out the side-effects.
