Check me out!
Tomorrow morning I have an interview for a paid internship with a public affairs firm in Edinburgh, which would be amazingly convenient. I reckon it'll only be minimum wage, which is a bit of a step down from the £8/h I'd been earning at the government, but it is better than nothing. Fingers crossed! AND I have managed to secure an interview for another paid internship with a public affairs firm in London. Seeing as I'll be down in London for a 'romantic' weekend over Valentine's I'm going to meet them then. Poor K, I book a weekend away but end up arranging an interview for myself to coincide.
On the downside I have to get at least one wisdom tooth out on Monday and I am really NOT looking forward to this. My top teeth came through fully ages ago but the bottom ones have been giving me a lot of trouble for a long time and apparently won't fully erupt due to overcrowding. Removing the bottom ones would be very difficult and require a surgical extraction, due to their location in the bone and how close they are to a nerve, so instead I'm having the top ones out. This will, I am told, make a difference to the pain in the bottom ones as the top teeth won't be mashing down on them and crushing up the already swollen gum. Here's hoping it works as a surgical extraction is the last thing I want - it's bad enough having to get any teeth out let alone that way! I have had teeth out before for orthadontic purposes, but not since I was about 13. From my memory I couldn't feel the pain but I could definitely feel the sensation and it's not pleasant. I am really not happy about this at all but I know it needs to be done.
Incidentally I am still planning on making the other blog, but I have yet to come up with a suitably witty name for it yet. Suggestions are welcome.
