Blue Day...

Hey Everyone...

I was all set to post about my Saturday night antics, but then today happened!

I don't want to pretend, but I don't want to bum you all out with me! Today I found out that my applications for the Clinical Psychology Doctorate have all been rejected. What's the big deal? I hear you cry.

Well my years have started to revolve around this as there is a long process of applying, waiting to hear if you've got an interview, interviewing and waiting to hear if you've got a place.

Last year, I actually got an interview - which was a big deal and a great achievement. But I think that's why this years 'all nos' has hit me harder! On top of the fact that I am on a strict wedding detox and feeling a bit sorry for myself due to a lack of sugar anyway! (and there is a whole family issue going on tonight too! Ick!)

So it's over for another year. Although by October the whole horrible process of building yourself up to be rejected starts again! Right now I feel like I don't want to apply again, but I know I will, because it is my dream!

Anyway, there are a few little things brightening my mood. I was all happy this morning when I walked through Green Park on my way to work. I snapped this...

Then I picked up this amazing lot from a lovely freecycler...

And the fiance bought me a few things to cheer me up...

He's eating the shortbread out of it - strict detox remember! Urgh!

Isn't he a good 'un!

Luckily I think I preempted this blue day and took tomorrow off work to use up my last day of annual leave this year. My plan was to have a lie in, have a relaxing bath, use my leftover lush facemask and get some crafting done!

Shame I can't sit and eat cake and tea too - *sigh*

Love Jewel xXx


  1. Aww sorry to hear about your applications Juli. Hope you manage a nice pamper and relax tomorrow.

  2. Im so sorry to hear Julie! Fingers crossed for next time! Is there a time limit on how long you can keep trying? Your dedication and passion will shine through Im sure. Sounds like youve got good things to do to cheer yourself up! xx

  3. Oh no!! Such a shame - it should be done on how much you want it - cos you obviously do, to keep applying!!

    I knew you would have some treats from that fiancee of yours, to cheer you up! Make the most of what you have and there is always another year (easy for me to say, I know!)


  4. I know what you mean, just as I feel I'm in a OK place someone goes and knocks you back. Takes a lot to get back into that OK zone but we do it. Hang in there.

  5. So sorry to hear about your application. Hope you feel better soon, what a lovely fiance to cheer you up some. Have a lovely relaxing day tomorrow. Hugs, Estelle x

  6. Sorry to hear about that Julie! I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend and feel refreshed. Hopefully after that you will know what you want to do about the next application : )

  7. Sorry to hear your disappointing news :o(

  8. i'm sorry to hear about the news, Julie! Hugs! i know how you feel and i think it's a big deal, i've been struggling to find a job for ages and havent got any permanent one, applying jobs each time make me tired sometimes, filling the same app form to apply and keep checking/phoning and waiting for an interview but in the end not lucky enough to get it, most of the times i feel depressed and frustrated, always worrying on how to help my husband financially and always careful on my spending but the bills and other things keep coming up and the house is running down, so yes i do understand how you feel but HOPE is what keeps me going, hoping and trying again and again! you're so lucky to have a lovely fiancee who cares and love you, what a sweet jubilee tin, where did he buy it? hehe

    I love the pic of the green park you took! gorgeous!

    xx susan
