This isn’t cool. I’ve been here for a couple of days now and I still don’t have a job. It’s getting a little bit concerning now, because I only have $360 left and $86 of that needs to go on 3 days at the hostel (it’s so fucking expensive here).
I’ve been sending my resume out all day, but I desperately need something.
Originally I thought about doing farm work, but it’s actually really hard to get. I phone up around 3 times a day and ask about if there are any new jobs. Today I was close, and even got through to the farmers, but they just told me that all the work had gone. The only way I can see it is go to the hostel in season and just wait till a job turns up. I want to go to somewhere called Bundaberg which is well up north (and costs $180 to get there) so I simply can’t afford it. I’m stuck here in Sydney and I have to get a job - quick, or I’m going to have no money, and I really don’t know what I’ll do then.
I’ve tried to get several jobs at call centres which i hear pay quite well (around $20 an hour) which would be amazing. In my resume I’ve been lying by saying I have 3 months experience back in England just to boast my chances.
I think tomorrow I’m just going to go to an agency and get them to get me ANY job, just so I can keep afloat and wait for something better to come along.
I’m kind of scared, I don’t want to run out of cash.
I got £150 saved in my Natwest but I got no way of touching it because my Natwest bank card got stolen. You can’t do international transfers online (which my Australian ANZ account you can) so I cant get it. What ever the case, I’m going to be charged about £20 just to get it here. Fucking hell!
If I don’t get a job tomorrow, I’ll start to really worry.
I’m not sure if I want to leave my current hostel for a cheaper one, because I have made some good friends here, not only from recent, but from 2 months ago when I first stayed here and Met up with Nikki.
Sigh, fingers crossed. I’m just going to have to go for anything. Not sure if I’m even sexy enough to sell my body!
