I am a bit concern about startign a new job - I don't make friends easily - or even associates. I'm finding that I don't know how to interact with people. I am starting to get very concerned about this. I got a verbal invitation to a farewell party - to be followed up by a facebook invite - and I wasn't invited on facebook - so I am feeling really like I need to go out and get a social life again...

This week is probably my social week of the month, 6-months etc.

Tonight is dinner with some high-school friends - we generally try to catch up every so often.
tomorrow I am going to Adelaide and spending the weekend with at least 2 mates, while monday I have a specialist appointment and then tuesday or wednesday i am off to albury for a couple of days. But saying this the people that I am seeing in the next week - is about a quarter of my friendship network...

Mebourne Public Transport

In the media in the last month - the shameless thing called melbourne public transport has been looked at and ideas of the how to improve the public transport has been reported.

Some of the things that I believe should be looked at in relation to melbourne transport is ;

  • every major shopping centre (knox, highpoint, southland, northland, etc.) should have a train station associated with it - and be on a line (none of them are) but they are all in major suburban areas (parking at the shopping centres is free so this needs to be increased and maybe introducing a system of providing free public transport.)
  • every university should have a train line into the city (except for uni's within CBD)
  • every hospital should have a train station to encourage visitors to take public tansport and not park.
  • introduce transit lines on the monash freeway -with cameras to fine people that do not have 2 or more individuals in a car - or have a larger vehicle lane - vehicles being over a certain tonage - i.e trucks and buses only.
  • A train line between fankston - portsea and frankston- dandendong
  • A train line to the Airport - with connections to the bundoora -werribee line, but then running into spencer st station(tullamarine and avalon) - this service will be more experience than the normal met line - and the skybus service will be removed. With the connection of both airport services to the werribee-bundoora line it will allow smoother connections between airports.
  • a train line between clayton uni and the bundoora unis
  • and maybe a train line between bundoora uni and werribee - going through sunbury.

this is only my ideas as a novice traveller on the melbourne transport.

I have just had a job interview - the job sounded great - and had heaps of variety etc all the things you look for in a job but....

The job required 3-5 years experience in environmental roles, and a science or engineering qualification.

The job is only for a year and they are offering a graduate rate of payment if that!

Therefre I made it honest in the interview that on that money I am not interested!

I am moving to Yarrawonga - starting work on the 19th of May!

Things in my life are very slow...

very slow...

The only thing that seems consist at the moment is everyday lend lease is ringing me to tell me what is happening with the job. Yes everyday - for the last 2 weeks I have had a phonecall from them. At least one. I think since the 7th of April - I have spoken to someone from lend lease every work day but one. It's insane. Yes I know they want me - I am brilliant!

The highlight for my week last week was 2 visits to the eye specialist, and my mum's school reunion - which had little to do with me... other than mum inviting people back to the house and me being good daughter and making hot drinks and keeping up the nibbles, and also helping the lions club the next day with the school free bbq.

things will speed along soon...

I have been informally informed that a company is going to offer me a position in Yarrawonga.

What do I do with this information?

The job will not start until mid May - where I will probably be based in sydney for a week or two, again what do I do with this information?

The job is an environment job - but its one of the few jobs that has bitten on my resumes...

Facebook - yes Facebook - or crackbook - whatever did we do before it!

The last couple of weeks - I have reconnected with individuals through facebook that I didn't expect to - including imaginary characters - well not necceessary imaginary characters but... the character is not real *no pulse, no blood trough*, the character in question is about a 30 cm bunny - known as Brabbit Telfer - he is associated with my past life at Telfer, and is part of the B crew Open Pit. Photos of him consist of him doing paperwork - essential for any worker at Telfer, driving in the pit - including the haul truck...

Also included in the group are two individuals so different from each other but similar and both of the same believe that facebook was evil...

I also discovered that people that I have knew from the past have got married, and also have met other people in my life...

Al's daughter turned 1 on the weekend - got invited to the family birthday party. It suprised me that they was only family. I fitted into the party!
