I have done a few posts lately and then just not finished them or have kept them private – there is all together too much whinging, anger and emo in them.
I am feeling overall, positive about everything – but beneath it is the lurking suspicion that I am not really aware of reality. I have my version of reality and everyone else is in another one. I have to some how deal with this issue as it is causes problems in my own life.
I am still applying for jobs and harrassing the recruitment agencies I am listed with – of the 3 of them – I have made a phone call a week to the recruiter and have been lucky to get a return phone call in 2 weeks. I am becoming increasingly assured that recruiters don’t actually do any work or that I am completely unemployable. Since I know I can work, and have done in the past – I can only assume the first statement is therefore true.
Hubby is telling me to keep my chin up and that it will work out – he went through a bad unemployment spell before landing his current employer so he remembers how it feels. It is just so disheartening to not even be given interviews – not even at agences either when I apply for jobs or ring them about sending my resume through….just complete silence even when I have been calling them.
It is hard. So hard. With the amount of jobs out there and the unemployment rate so low how can it be so hard to get a job? I don’t think I will ever understand how they come up with figures that are so obviously distorted.
We have AWC in a couple of weeks, so a few days in Tassie might give me a little re-charge in batteries. It will be nice to get away from everything here and not worry about things. Hubby managed to get a two week break basically at the same time, he hasn’t had a proper long break in a very long time so it will be very good for him.
My plan to lose weight before my next birthday is not going anywhere – I have discovered though – I need to go to be by 10pm to be able to get up at 5am without too much issue….but it is the going to bed at 10 I am struggling with. I just lose so much time travelling that I stay up later to feel that I have some semblence of time.
So this weekend I am going to try it out..I want to get up at 5.30 and see if I can do a good workout in 30 minutes therefore allowing me time to get through the shower and ready to leave by 6.30 at the absolute latest. That’s my plan anyway 😀
I better run anyway, since I am at work – I am sure going to get a few phone calls etc so don’t have time to type 😀 BYE
