As our flight was not until after lunch, this morning after we'd packed and put our luggage in store we went to the Hipolit House: more historical domestic interiors, plus exhibition on the actress Antonina Hoffman and on theatre/acting more generally in C19th. Rather interesting.

Of the journey, not a great deal to be said except for the enormous distances walked within airports.

Anyway, ome agen.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm working on recognizing my ingrained NWL flaws in the current moment. I'm cishet chicky, and I enjoy hearing most points of view.

Still no job.

I have missed out on two science-adjacent jobs for being too enthusiastic about science, two industrial jobs for not having enough [industrial experience] and two academic jobs for I know not why, you expect academics to give you reasons?!

I am, to put it lightly, miffed.

It's like, I've deliberately gone for the entry level industrial jobs because I know I don't have industrial experience, jobs that don't ask for experience.

The science-adjacent jobs have gone with "you love science so much we're worried you'll hate the job" and they might have a point but a girl's got to eat, you know. (Don't worry, I have enough money for food and lodgings, the same quirk of the mind that makes me hoard things makes me hoard money.)

It's all just very frustrating!

I wrote this -

Down the Garden Path (and what Alice found there) (4517 words) by El Staplador
Chapters: 5/5
Fandom: Alice In Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Additional Tags: Dreams and Nightmares, Dreams vs. Reality, Non-Linear Narrative, Board Games, Pastiche, Poetry, journeys, Nursery Rhymes, Werewolves
Summary:

Alice throws a six, and finds herself on the square of the hypotenuse. But she's been here before, and she'll be here again, and perhaps she's already here...



- which I feel is rather obviously mine, though not in a fandom I'd previously attempted.

(Why do I not have an Alice icon?)

 I'm thinking how I can do to save more money that I already have.
I have 1.000 usd on my main bank account (but I have it on our legal money, not dolars), And so far I don't need use it for anything so I was thinking about to buy 200 or 250 dolars every month and move it to my account for dolars. And do the same with any extra money, i.e. the 350 usd I earned with ecommerce.  

I am not sure if I should save the money on dolars or pesos. Right now 1 dolar = 17.50 pesos and dolar will keep rising its price, so this is why I think about to save dolars, but I don't know what will happens with the dolar's price after elections in October.

Saving 250 every month is not great, but I think if I start with that I can try to save more if I see I am ok with bills. 

Durham

I took my oldest son (who is 16) to visit Durham University yesterday for their Open Day. Durham is a 3 hour drive from our house. I told my son that I didn't mind taking him there as long as I didn't have to get up early and then stand around waiting for him getting ready (which is what I normally end up doing). I told him to get me up 2 minutes before he wanted to leave the house. So at 5:58 he woke me up, I washed, got dressed and we jumped in the car and drove up to Durham straight away. We stopped for a McDonald's breakfast on the way and arrived about 9:30.

Durham is a beautiful place. It's got a very good reputation as a university but it's in a strange location - inland between two rough cities on the east coast of England (Sunderland and Middlesbrough). It's got a massive cathedral but a population of just 50 000. It's got a really welcoming atmosphere and it would be a lovely place to study for 3 or 4 years.

I was the first person in my family to go to university and to see my son looking at attending a place like Durham is something else.

I treated him and myself to good food and coffee while we were there in between lectures and we both really enjoyed the experience. We got back about 10:00 at night, exhausted but having spent a great day together.

I would love to study there.
