it seems as though too many of you are having difficulty with finding jobs, and it makes me sad. for i remember times, years ago when feeling discouraged looking for work, being knocked back for jobs in favour of those more qualified, wondering if i was ever going to make it anywhere. but loves, i know it seems easy to say, but don't give up, because the right job will find you when you least expect it. believe it, believe me. it happened to me so many times, just when i was on the brink of despair at not finding anything. earlier this year i feared not being able to find full-time work and being labeled a "dole-bludger" for far too long, and it was something i secretly cried about at night. then i feared finding a job, but it being one i would hate and fear to come to. i've been in that situation before also; but look, things worked out for me and they will for all of you too. have a little faith; things happen for a reason. sometimes rejections can be blessings in disguise - just trust in yourself, and trust in faith. i know because it's happened to me oh so many times, that things have worked out just when it seemed they wouldn't. finding jobs is never easy, but none of you give up hope please?
it's been an uneventful day here. not a lot of work to do; i spent much time looking up money saving ideas on the internet. i really need to get a proper budget happening soon - my spending habits are really quite bad, especially if i *do* want to go to england in april/may of 2004. working full-time is a nice steady income, but with a car loan to pay off, my own health insurance that i have to pay for now (as i'm 23 & too old to be covered on my parents), therapy & medication adding up to over $100 a fortnight, plus regular living expenses AND christmas coming up, i really need to stop myself from getting too carried away. last month during one of my manic phases where everything was numbers and calculations, i made out at least 5 budget plans, none of which have been put into effect as of yet. le sigh. oh, i have good intentions though, i suppose.
in other news of today, i got my superannuation stuff sorted out (which i'd been putting off for 5 months), made use of the colour photocopier to capture one of my favourite ever pictures for journaling uses, and took 4 hours to eat a chocolate donut much to the astoundment of everyone else in the office.
