The number one charity fund for cheetahs is the Cheetah Conservation Fund, led by Dr. Laurie Marker. Their headquarters is close to Etosha National Park in Namibia. I've been following them for quite a while now. There's even a new dutch charity that supports the CCF (Stichting Spots). Why am I telling all this? Because on May 6th, Dr. Marker and a team from CCF will be visiting Safaripark Beekse Bergen. I'm so gonna be there.

The job interview at the casino went something like this:

"So, Rob, how well can you work with employees who've been with the company for 30 years, who have no more motivation whatsoever and are only still working here because it pays good and we can't fire them without a fat compensation cheque?"
- "I must say that so far I've been in the priviledged position to only work with motivated people who like their jobs, so to be honest: I wouldn't know."
"Well, I fear that my description fits about 80 percent of our staff."

And things went downhill from there.

After that, I went over to vent some steam at the Hillywood Mansion of pegla, skunktaur, hackrabbit and clsa. After two hours of Guitar Hero II, most of my frustration was gone, then I was fed and I was happy again.

And now, I'm back home, making a distilled version of my resume (turning 3 pages into 1) so I can take a few copies along with me to the National Career Fair in Amsterdam tomorrow. And on tuesday, it's T-Mobile selection day. Then on thursday, my appointment at the unemployment agency to apply for welfare. Mom, please win big in the lottery tomorrow.

    Respect hoor, echt super! (Misschien is de nacht van de vluchteling iets voor je?)

    Grappig - ik had geen idee dat er ook whatsappende studentjes meededen, alleen serieuze renners.

    Best of luck with that. But best to man up and do it that risk losing more eyesight later. :/

    If you wanna go for a drink after that, lemme know.

    I hear ya! The reason why I haven't even considered getting laser surgery to correct my eyesight is that the thought of having someone messing with my eyes and me not being completely knocked out…

    It is a routine operation, but yeah, I understand the anxiety.
