I have been put up for a few more jobs! and also have been contacted for a position nearby as well. So life is going well in that way. I am alos pursuing two dream job areas one is in publishing I am putting myself up for internships (Paid) for as many publishing houses as I can find, and applying for all the vacancies I can in that area as well. I am also looking at the justice field. I am not a lawyer, I have no interest in being one either. I am more than happy in supporting that role in what ever way I can within abilities and within moral and legal frameworks (yes, yes, a rather formal language, but it's best to be on record.)

I have an interview workshop tomorrow and  I am hoping I am not going to bump into a woman I had to deal with at part 1. She was rude to the point of urgh. She kept interupting the leader, then she talked about what she thought was important and also her personal life and I was all, under my breath, "Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up ... I am going to kill you" an hour workshop ended up and hour and a half because of the bitch! Lets hope I can get a lot out of this.

Today I spent a lot of time soul searching. Which, for the most part is what I have been doing for the past few months. Today was a lot more concerted.

I have finally worked out the sectors that interest me;
  • Admin, business, clerical and management
  • Social work and related - specialising in disability/women and children and Homelessness and mental health
  • Information Technology
  • Media
  • Business
  • Human resources 
  • Publishing

So all in all, I have a lot more focus - a lot more direction and a lot more research and information to pick up some actual job apps and perhaps contacts. I feel a lot more confident about everything from a career in Business to a career in Writing (which has been a dream since I was 15 - It will happen)

No I am not all stabbity. I figured that was something that would be worth stating right now. But yeah, I had an issue this week, and it bleed everywhere. My boyfriend, who seriously makes the tedium of unemployment bearable, had to traipse off to Dundee, in gloriously fucked up and freezing Scotland. So on Sunday I said farewell and that day I was ok. But Monday and Tuesday were hell on Earth. I got a few texts and a couple 30 second chats before he went to bed, but nothing else. And suddenly I felt alone. Added to this trying to enter any conversations with any friends over the last couple of days has not been fun - mostly cause very few people responded to me. My sense of isolation and loneliness went sky high and well everyone got to see me losing the plot on twitter. Which has me worried - I thought I was a little more stable and durable than this.

In Other News

So everyone knows my state of employment or not, a couple of things are happening for me in that regards so lets bullet point and try to explain them a little.

  • I have been referred to a company called Ingeus - A company that helps people get back into work. They seem to be a great place, and I did walk out really optimistic that they would cover the things I needed that the government have overlooked completely. They seem good, I hope that the next six months are high yield in terms of opportunities.
  • I am going to be starting a training course in Business Administration - this is important because at least now I can have a steady progression and not face the rest of my life is pathetic dead end jobs.

Hopefully these two things will mean that I can start looking at things like entry level career jobs (the kind everyone seems so invested in) What is a career anyway? Is it staying in one field for the rest of my life or is it different jobs with a thread between them? I give up trying to define anything.
