This is London, not Antartica, so why don't the tubes run all night,
You are my Girlfriend, not Molly Ringwald, so why won't you stay here tonight,
This is sixth form poetry not Keats or Yeats, and now we find the part that we both hate.

We love the city because it lets us down, We love the city NOT the suburbs that surround.
We love all the dirty things, that lead us to think, that maybe true love could be found.
We love the city because its how we live, We love the city cause it never loves us back.
We love it all because sometimes, even though they're hard to find, it contains all the virtues we lack.

Sometimes I hate my job

I left this small, small room at 1120 last night.

I came back in at 1030 this morning. At 5pm my boss told me I could stop the Lords coverage. Great, I thought, home at a reasonable hour. They then gave me another pre recorded 45 min Westminster debate to caption. On top of the 2 3hr parts of the Lords that I still need to edit.

I want a cup of tea. Or a pint. Some kind of stimulant, anyway.

err... I record, caption and edit debates for BBC Parliament... mainly House of Lords stuff but also other things like Scottish Parliament and committees.
They havent let me near the Commons. I think they're worried I might break it.

Ooh, it's so tempting, sometimes, I tell you...
Like the time the Lords were debating top up fees and going on about how great volunteering was for graduates (and i'm sitting here thinking, great, but we also have to eat... one of my friends has just been refused dole money because she's doing a work placement, so I'm a bit het up about that kind of thing.)

I hate my job all the time..
I am slowly developing a phobia of offices. They look like prisons. And this is where I waste my life...
8.5 hours 5 days a week totally wasted.

I REALLY hate my job. I live in the U.S. I've been working for Starbucks for 6 or so years. I have my English degree, but nobody cares. I used to have more energy for volunteering and freelance video production, but now I'm worn out from my job and I need to do something new. I have a very low boredom threshold unfortunately.
