Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.

This is where I went after I got rejected for a job a really wanted, just days after getting dumped. It was a boiling hot (45+ degrees) day and this beautiful hall in the NGV is air conditioned. It was my happy place for a couple of hours while I had a life crisis.
Dehydration and miracles
Yesterday I had one of the worst hangovers of my life.
I don’t really get hungover from alcohol… but I get hangovers from sugary drinks and because I haven’t been having sugar lately.. I got hit hard!
I had drinks with my housemates, dinner and drinks for a friend’s birthday in the city, and then a house party for 2 of my friends’ birthdays. My night involved a lot of free drinks which was awesome but meant I ended up drinking: sangria, mojitos, beer, red wine, prosecco, cider and punch (made of cheap vodka, passion pop and juice etc.)
I ended up so dehydrated (I didn’t drink water in between these things, but had drunk my usual ~3L during the day) that I drank about 4L of water yesterday and only went to the bathroom TWICE. Once in the morning, once at night. It’s the first time I haven’t woken up in the night to go to the bathroom for as long as I can remember.
I was sitting in church last night trying to concentrate as my head raged at me (driving to church I had literally considered not using my indicator because the clicking hurt my head too much) and I realised I hadn’t prayed about it yet. I asked God to take away my headache and literally instantaneously it was gone. I was so shocked I tried to look around inside my head to find the headache (if that makes sense) but it was just gone and my head felt as clear as glass. Thank you!! :)
So Centrelink (Australia’s welfare) is a bit strange and I need to keep applying for 10 jobs a fortnight even though I’m employed. I’m on ‘New Start’ which is basically a welfare for job seekers and one of the things I need to do to get the welfare is apply for a certain amount of jobs. I need to keep applying for jobs until I earn too much and I don’t get my first pay until the 19th.
Anyway, so what I’ve been doing is just applying to crazy awesome jobs and seeing what happens… and one of them has replied asking me more about myself. It’s a position for an Editor at an online magazine and it would be amazing. Editing is my dream job.
I really doubt I’ll get it, but I like the security of applying for jobs while I have a job. I’ve never done that before and it feels awesome. Because if you don’t get the job, you won’t die of starvation.. but if you get the job, you’d suddenly be in your dream career. Win win!
