Now that is what I call insightful leadership. Seriously. How the hell was I supposed to be able to do _anything_ in the office from 8.46 to 15.30?
Of course I went on a spiraling trip; 'maybe I actually am not good enough to work here ... even here'. I hadn't felt my resources being put to good use there since I begun, and this was truly an inspiring way of continuing my day. So anyhow, self-pity, doubt, anger and annoyance aside, I asked the elective to take part of the meeting as he had gotten a copy of the email, not knowing whether I was to be fired or getting a reprimande. He was unwilling to partake, and I was seriously annoyed as he apparently knew what was going to happen - and none of them wanted to give me any form of clue. Finally he agreed, and quite soon it became clear that the office didn't have enough work for everyone, and that being the last one on board, I was also the first one to temporarily go on government support, or the dole. For 5 months. No shitty work, but still get a bit of pocket money. Terrible.
So for two weeks I kept up the good work, come the last Friday, pack up things, leave early with a spring in my step (I waited till I was around the corner to do my little victory dance) and take my boyfriend on a surprise celebration trip to Edinburgh. Lovely city and a sweet taste of spring. They have an actual freakin' VOLCANO downtown.
Since I've registered my own firm, started designing my own projects and gotten sponsors and full government support for one which we'll build in august and exhibit throughout the fall. Even the darkest night comes to an end at dawn, and it's looking like it'll be a nice new day.
And so chapter four of 'happy life' begins.

Maybe I should have my head checked.
Other than that I've been looking at alternative career paths on the side to make a bit of extra money just for the hell of it. Was talking to my housemate the other day about escort services and he mentioned a ridiculous registration fee to be able to practice legally, so today I decided to check it out a bit. Guess what, it's pretty straight forward (well straight and straight. ;-). They make goddamn good money too, $200+ an hour and up.. Suddenly a bit more tempting, huh? :p Could be an interesting side business. Then again, maybe I should have my head checked.

Now in the common room of the guest house where the crew is talking about getting gastro in Vietnam in colourful terms like 'rocket' and 'orbit'.
Tomorrow I'm exploring beautiful Kyoto, then Hiroshima, Friday I'll be going into the mountains for a bit of Sento, the traditional japanese hot springs, before hitting Tokyo again and flying out on Saturday.
Can't wait for Norway, but don't want to leave either.

Today I went swimming after work and then got complimented by a straight guy for my torso while having dinner. Very odd.
How awesome is this little dog:

Suggestions to mo-designs are welcome as the last couple of days people have been literally folding at the hip or sprawling on the floor in laughter when they see me. Or asking me to say something that Ned would say.. Okily dokily.
