    When I apply for part-time jobs at various places I can't even get in for an interview. My only job was at a sports shop, but they sacked me after a few weeks (they heard me saying something they didn't like). The only reason I got in was because my sister worked there already.

    I don't particularly want to work, but I need the money. Uni is not free like it used to be. Maybe this is coming across to them? I try to be enthusiastic at least.
