Because I'm partial to buying some new games every month, and because I live in the UK and games are not cheap, I decided to apply for a job, some £11-per-hour part time tech support job, 20 hours a week. I don't even know if I'm going to get the interview yet, and I really hope I do, and getting the job would be just great.. There's only so much you can buy with the money the college gives you every month, blah.
Even though I haven't even got confirmation that I'm getting an interview, I've already cut and dyed my hair, so it's "tidier". That goes to prove I really want this job, I never usually change my appearance for anything, I went to my university interview/tour with bright blue hair. £220 a week for helping people with my "Microsoft product knowledge" isn't that bad considering.
Anyone else ever wanted a job, or even something else, so bad that they did something out of character to get it/increase your chance of getting it? read
