Yeah daytime TV is great!I long for weekdays off uni to just relax with This Morning!I think you are my parallel twin, much as Id hate to admit it but I love "thats life" and "take a break" cheap as they are those stories are prime emtertainment!!!On occassions when Ive been skint Ive applied for all the competitions and even concocted ridiculous stories to try and get my hands on the £500!!!We evene sank this low.....when me and my mate were working in spain, she fell down a drain, so here she was leg stuck down this manky drain, crying and it was the perfect opportunity to hand her the tatty "thats life" we had been hauling around for weeks and we took a photo of her in this ridiculous pose, clutching the magazine and sent it in to try and get the £25!!!!!We didnt even win anything!!!!

I've been staying with a friend for a while so I can get to interviews(don't tell the social they'll probably think we're partners and cut my benefit) and she's got Sky. Its great!!

Sky is sooooooooooo addictive...even when theres nothing actually on that you want to watch, you still find yourself transfixed watching the most random ever things?!?!?Those tacky American shopping channels make me laugh!!!

you know anything you do alone is boring ie watch tv. etc. try going back to a game of cards hopscotch - anything . people will at first think youre crazy, but later they will see you as fun loving. try it and let me know get others interested. and it's sooooo cheap to enjoy yourselves.

But its waaayy to cold to go out and play hopscotch, although boy I need the exercise! And there is noone to play cards with cos everyone is at work! That, I suppose is the worst thing about being unemployed: You are actually quite isolated.

But there is no excuse for being bored when there are jobs to apply for. There are plenty of things I need to do like sort out my travel photos and tidy my room, just don't have the motivation!

Hence the TV- it requires no effort, you don't even use your brain!

I get graduated at the beginning of January and the happiness of the first moment, the feeling of which finally I had finished that one for what I had studied for years, already vanished. While I was studying I had enough freedom, if not for big trips, at least to volunteriing with my group of rescue, to do what I like and to travel with enough inside the country.

Now, passed the initial illusion, rather I feel that I wiil have to take a work that will tie me of the neck and to obtain any chance that allows me, at least, to support my standard of living (to save to travel for the present time is out of any possibility).

I suppose that to be in bed with a silly virus helps to my state of mind...

We either have enough money and not enough time, or enough time and not enough money.

It's a hard juggle to have enough of each.

I wish my mum had sky TV. We had it in my old shared house and I was hooked on all the medical programmes. I think I could probably do heart bypass surgery, deliver a baby and do a face-lift.

But not all at the same time

I graduated last June and am so bored now, been looking for a graduate job for months but no luck so decided to do a masters this Sept so i have to wait now till then.
Saving up money working in a supermarket which is so boring and watching too much tv (we just got sky digital) & Trisha which i'm hooked on now - is that a bad thing?. But in the summer i'm off to europe for about a month so at least i have soemthig to look forward to.
