Failing an interview for what looked like an ideal job

Posted 6th June 2016 at 00:59 by Alone.

Last week I failed an interview for an apprenticeship I felt I wanted. I researched them, I liked how they helped society. Failing this job was like a smack in the face, but maybe I needed to fail the interview because failing it has made me more aware, or just more honest, with knowing what I want to do.

It feels mentally hard to be honest with career aspirations when people have certain expectations for you. It feels like I have fooled myself with thinking I wanted to be an engineer,...

Opened Eyes

Posted 29th May 2016 at 15:02 by Alone.

Last week I can say that I had a good week, which is very rare for me.

I started work experience at Unilever. Whilst I can say that I still encountered usual social problems and anxiety so far it has been a good, eye opening experience and motivated me to try more with my job search. So far my work experience isn't my dream job or even my dream job environment but it does show what is possible if I try harder. I like the amount of independence and freedom that the department I'm working...

Since making that thread I have been to a few Apprenticeship/Networking Open Days and prior to that was on a Spear programme which had a few people who seemed completely normal and a few people that seemed to have learning difficulties or other difficulties.

One thing I have noticed is from certain people at Spear and the Open...

Why So Serious? Why Not?

Posted 10th April 2016 at 21:22 by Alone.

This question has been on my mind constantly recently.

To some people, I probably appear serious, in fact too serious to some people.

I think I'm a serious person because a lot of the time I have felt like I am not good enough, could be doing better and then misunderstood by others because of anxiety and vice versa. You can't feel frustrated and happy at the same time, hey?

I am also naturally focused and curious to learn certain stuff which sometimes...

Who Am I ?

Posted 9th April 2016 at 02:27 by Alone.

Where I am in life, presently, left me wondering this question.

I guess some of what I am experiencing is common with lots of 20 somethings.

For one I don't know who my friends really are. My only close friend seems to have grown apart and other friends on Facebook also seem to have grown apart or, for some, are not even friends since I made my new Facebook account.

Secondly the internet, Social Media in particular had me believing that I need to be financially...
