Gosh! I didn't realise my last blog post was in August!
Well, some stuff has happened since then, but nothing which will surprise any of you (since any readers are probably my mates anyway)!
I did eventually find a temporary position in November after 3 months of being out of work. Saying it now, it is an awful long time, yet last year seems to have flown by. It is coming up to a year since I was made redundant and my weird year began. However, I now find myself out of work again after that age-old excuse which both hits me like a lorry, yet doesn't manage to surprise me one bit; 'we have no money/we are re-structuring so we don't need you anymore.' I was about two and a half months into a supposedly six month contract, so I know that for whatever reason they wanted rid of me and didn't actually have the grounds to do so. I was looking for a new job anyway - but at least I had regular money coming in when doing so. Now I have to sign on again, which is always depressing.
On the up side of last year's small traumas, I now know that I don't want to be a teacher, which is quite amusing to me now since I was so disappointed I didn't get a chance to study at the time. I want to continue along the line of administration, but floating around the outskirts of media/creative companies which is where I've had my experience. One of the job agencies I am signed up with is putting me forward for a job in a museum which I think would be pretty cool, so fingers crossed for that one.
I set out to be more positive this year, but finding myself out of work so soon into it has put me on a bit of a downer! However, I shall endeavour to have some happier (more interesting) things to talk about this year that will have the minimum amount of 'woe is me' contained therein.
