    How do I put this...

    Stupid god damn Department of Conservation screwed me over. The guy who my dad met one day said there was this job availble (after dad talked to him about me etc) and he told me that he spoke with the employers and said i was perfect for the position etc.

    I rang doc warkworth to ask the vacancy number for "blah blah" job and they asid it was 02/340. I got a recept for my application and it was stamped 10 sept. Applications closed on the 8th. So I rang DOC and said: "What up?" We got talking and the job I wanted to apply for was filled a month prior. :mad: And so, I asked: "What job have I applied for then?!" "Permanent position as Biodiversity Ranger".

    I, today, found out I missed that job (unsuprisingly) and now am screwed. I have less than 3 weeks (total, inc exams) this year and no place to live and no job.

    I'm so stressed and upset I could punch a wall or something. :(

    So, anyone going to the swap meet? I'll probably be there 'round 12pm if anyone wants to grab a coffee or something afterwards. (Though I'm not holding my breath on the basis of past attempts to jack up a social event for FFNZ ...)

    Northcote is a bit too far for me unfortunatly, plus I've already spent my Star Wars budget for the rest of the year.
    Hopefully the weather will clear up for it, though I wouldn't count on it ... Auckland is starting to resemble Kamino. All we need is some flying whales :)

    > Northcote is a bit too far for me unfortunatly

    You do realise that the Akoranga Drive AUT is literally 2 minutes off the bridge? It would only be five minutes more driving than coming into the CBD.

    No, I'll be wearing a shirt saying "I'm gonna open a can of whup-ass on SithForceLord".

    I went along ... got there at around midday, although there wasn't all that much SW stuff which interested me. I was kinda hoping someone would be selling a bunch of the new figures.

    I did complete my set of the Burger King LOTR figureines from 2001, and also met the elusive Klimt_of_somethingorother

    There's another event on in Auckland this Sunday according to SWNZ ... sounds pretty general though.
