I’m in the midst of applying for an exciting new job, which it almost seems too much to hope for. It s one of those which only becomes more exciting as the process goes on, and I’m dow to the final stages of a very lengthy process.
Almost more bizarrely, Poisonous Jim has become, well, a lot less poisonous lately. In fact, he has even admitted to liking me. Imagine!

Mr. Steven sent me a message to say his Father is very ill, and so he has put all social engagements on hold for now. 2 dates since – neither of which will yield a second. Sometimes I feel like I’m doing all this work to further my career – but how I long to have someone to share it all with. Sometimes I don’t even seem to know what it is I want.
Sometimes it feels like the currents of life are changing and turning a corner. The frightening thing then is how little control we feel. I feel like things are moving; churning just out of my grasp, and any influence I try and make will be like throwing a pebble into a maelstrom. I feel like I’m about to open an entirely new chapter, and I don’t know whether I’m excited…
