So August came and went with very little outfit august from me 🙁 Sadly life and all it’s stresses got in the way and it wasn’t possible to get things out there on time. I am still considering posting outfits and body progression photos but they will be sporadically posted. (Sad Panda)
Now that’s out of they way let’s start talking my usual crapola! Things have been a little tough for me emotionally. Yes I’ve managed to keep it together, but life has been dealing me with more stresses and worries than I can deal with and I’m starting to feel the pressure. I’m not about to disappear into a cloud of tears and snot or hide under my bed for the rest of my life (as much as I want to), I just simply have a bit of a cry and move on. But what it does mean is some things have to be put aside to do later. Blogging has fallen into that category as well as some of my quilting projects and even keeping on top of my housework.
Most of my stresses stem from the fact that I am STILL unemployed. I apply for anything and everything I can get my hands on, full time, part time, casual you name it I’m applying for it. No one seems to want to give me a chance. A lot of my friends and family have told me I should go get some form of qualification, well that costs money which means I need to get a job…. Aaaaaand we are back to square one! What I dream of doing is interior design. This is something i have wanted to do for a very long time and I have been looking into it. There are some awesome design schools around and quite a few of them have relatively inexpensive (for what they are) fees, but they are still out of my reach.
Now I can hear you all screaming about government help and all that, that doesn’t apply to me. Government assisted programs only apply to you if A: you are on the dole or B) are below a certain income. Before you all start ranting and raving that I don’t have an income, you’re right I don’t have an income, but Druey does and as we are in a defacto relationship, and the assistance programs are means tested, I don’t qualify. Are you dizzy yet? I sure as shit am!
I have done a lot of soul searching a research on interior design and even though most of you probably think it’s not a great career move to go into a business that most would consider a luxury item, and probably very few could afford. That has played heavily on my mind, but interior design is much more than designing someones home interior and making it look all pretty, there are literally thousands of jobs that right now i can’t apply for that, if I had this qualification, I could apply for. Not to mention I would be doing something that I love, and after settling for jobs that I can put up with for years, I want a career I love and wake up everyday loving and want to progress with. Can’t I have that? PLEASE??
