I got rejected

Today I experienced the weirdest and most frustrating thing I've ever experienced during my job hunt.

Today I got rejected. I had interview yesterday for a waitress position in a French cafe. I was accepted and invited to come today to start training. I had a free evening so I decided to finally dye my hair. It's been a while and my roots were too frightening lol. I was aware that the copper dye I bought won't remove my red colour since it's too dark but my roots became really orange nicely transitioning to red. Kinda like inverted ombre lol!

This is how I looked yesterday after dyeing:


Kinda dark, can't really see colours well.

Aaaanyways, today I come for a training, joining the staff meeting and boom...

-You dyed your hair?
-Yes I did.
-It was darker yesterday.
-Yes it was.
-You can't work with hair this bright.

...okay. So it appears that leisure centre this cafe is opening at created some stupid rules about person's appearance. Person can't have any face piercing, can't have any tattoos and can't have his/her hair dyed unnatural colours. They only allow shades of brown and blonde. I was told that if I dye my hair dark they will hire me. I was totally shocked. I said I will think and went to do the induction. After that I just went to the manager and told that I can't do this. I can't just dye my hair and it is sad that they judge person because of the hair colour and doesn't consider person with colourful hair the same valuable staff member.

Seriously I was so shocked and angry and annoyed! Since when you can tell if person is good or not just by looking at their hair colour??! You learn something new every day. What if the actual natural bright ginger would come to the interview. Would they ask to dye her/his hair dark too? Lol. Well, no thank you, I am not going to change myself the way they want so that I can work and hate how I look. This is just stupid.

All companies I have applied for talk about equal rights, asking so many questions about race, age, gender, etc all the time. I guess they should add *natural hair*(!!!) in their job description because this is the only discrimination since everyone's so equal lol...

To think about it...I don't even consider myself as one of those crazy people with crazy hair! My face isn't pierced, I only have 3 lobe piercings and had to grow my cartilage because it never fully healed for few years and I don't have any tattoos. But this was my first time like that... I'm speechless.

Yeah well, be calm, I'm not going to change my hair for sure... I look great.


I'm flaming dammit! ♥

Have you ever experienced anything like this? Tell me your story. ♥

P.S.: I don't hold any grudges to that cafe. People are really friendly and great. All atmosphere is inviting. It's that supid leisure centre fault... Seriously what kind of stupidity just happened today...

First Impressions: Part II

Hey guess what? I finally decided I need to finish what I started lol. Here's my impressions blog Part II! If you want to read Part I click this link!

In this part I will continue posting random pictures (and by random I mean RANDOM) with stories from few months ago with impressions of UK since I came here. Enjoy!


I seriously love pound stores. So many goody goodies! Like this cereal for example. It has tiny marshmallows!! Could it be cuter?? The caption? Actually I dedicated this pic to my dear friend Lola, she hates marshmallows and I just can't help but think about her when I see them. xDD Sorry, I love you girl. (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤


I saw this poster in the VUE cinema, asdfghjkl; it was so cute! (I hate my old phone's camera) As many of you know this is the strawberry and piece of cake from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Why it's rating is so small??? I think I'll rewatch this movie today. It's just too brilliant. :'D

Talking about cinemas...did you know that you can watch some few months old animated movies in Cineworld Saturday/Sunday around 10am for £1.50??? Crazy!!! (=⌒▽⌒=)


Having fun with English language. Even though I know what they meant...IT'S JUST TOO FUNNY!!! I mean seriously, who of the people who created English language decided to call ghost, the one that haunts old houses the same as god's spirit lol. Oh by the way, it was closed. The ghost might ran away from it's zone... *coughs* sorry I'll stop now. (no offence towards anyone. this is purely my stupid joke, I am tolerant as long as your beliefs doesn't hurt other people)


Sunsets are beautiful wherever you are... ♥

I had a job in a press for a few months in New Duston, Northampton and it would usually end at this perfect sunset time. Sadly it wasn't a perfect time for bus catching so I would usually come late and had to wait half an hour for another one...


...but who cares when you've got pasta!!! Hahahaha.


Oh yeah, at the end of the summer I found out that I am a freak when it come to ice cream. Why there are so many different tastes??!! I NEED TO TASTE THEM ALL へ(゜∇、°)へ


Oh yeah we tried the famous Nando's restaurant. Wasn't bad at all! Especially the never ending glass of the drink of your choice lol. And I just had to take the infamous bathroom selfie. The window was just too big not to... *guilty* (〃▽〃)


No wonder there are so many overweight people. There are soooo many ready food only left to cook in an oven for like 20 minutes. It is tasty but it is full of bad fat.


After eating all those ready meals for few months we just started to prepare similar food almost from scratch. It's so much healthier! Yes, it takes more time but it is so much fun! More people should try that... Experimenting is awesome. ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ


Pasta bake!!! Yummy~ OMG haven't baked this for so long... ♥


I finally bought new phone and started taking better quality pictures. (^v^)


Lithuanians will understand this one looooool... (hint: it's a swear word) (ノ>▽<。)ノ

And here started the longing for home...


Found a whole shelf full of Lithuanian sweets for 1 pound. These are so good! ♥


Got a postcard from my sis. She knows how I love owls. Brought tears to my eyes.


And sent this music key friendship necklace to my best friend. Miss her so much... ♥


One of the most important impressions I wanted to mention from the start. It's so different from Lithuania. Whenever you look up to the sky you will always see a plane here or there or at least a trail. It really amazes me and makes me realise how small we are living in this big country.

Stay impressed. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
