Just a blog about a series of uninteresting events that have occurred in my life,
and my useless hopes for the future…
Actually thats a lie, starting a new year of TAFE has made me realize i probably had the best summer holidays of my life so far! And just to give you a quick snippet of the events that happened in that short amount of time, i have now realised how much knowledge you can gain by experience in a short period of time.
The particular events i remember most were catching up with old mates, experiencing a break up, going on road trips to nowhere, listening to different music i wouldn’t listen to, helping a friend with unfortunate family issues, finding haunted houses (scariest experience), seeing a car on fire (pretty scary too), camping, blacking out for the first time new years day, meeting stacks of new people, saw the lamest tattoo I’veever seen, planning a holiday with close friends, pushing myself to exercise every second day (it worked most of the time…), creating magazines and magazine layouts in my spare time, seeing some strange naked dude swim in my mates pool, organising a beach day with the mates, job searching, re-decorating my room, seeing a granny dance in public, dressing up as a bogan and seeing a ‘burlesque show’ in town ha ha!
One particular change that greatly impacted my life at that time was the break-up, i feel silly for thinking it, and it may seem a bit childish and corny but i really believed that i would stay with this guy forever. Though it was my first long-term relationship it made me really think about the sacrifices and the amount of team work that makes a relationship work! And this year i can clear my head of those sad memories, and now focus on using those skills I have improved on.
The job interviews, we all hate them that’s probably why we use them to hire people to see if they are keen and smart enough for the job. In my experience i have a current part-time job at a restaurant, and was keen for more holiday work, however i did not strive or persist to achieve that goal. To be honest i was a bit over job searching, therefore i got nowhere. Then i got 2 interviews!! I was really glad! then i realised i actually don’t know why i went to those interviews, because i didn’t actually want the job! So i found all that to be pretty pointless. However taking into account that all the job hunting and interviewing has given me more skills and experience that is the best skill to have to seek the job you want! Particularly this year as part of my course we will be looking at
I have now come to a realisation, in writing this blog i have now been given a chance to reflect and improve the way i pursue and approach things and plan ahead, for a positive outcome. Though there were many ups and downs in that short term that became overwhelming to me, however that snippet is a great example of life and its unexpected changes. Thinking now about it all now, each of these challenges in my life i face, i feel just a little bit more prepared and wary of the more complex challenges to come.
