It doesn't have to be like this

Posted 14th June 2016 at 22:59 by amara

I have been suspecting that I may have aspergers for some time, more so presently with the work experience and a few other stuff.

I don't appear autistic to most people I think, I appear normal but very shy and worried. However I seem to attract somewhat negative responses from those around me 9/10 times unintentionally, from people thinking that I am staring at them (and no this is not all in my mind) to having people ready to confront or tease me. I also have always found it hard...

Failing an interview for what looked like an ideal job

Posted 6th June 2016 at 00:59 by amara

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 amara

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...

Is my Social Anxiety as big of a deal as I have felt it was?

Posted 14th April 2016 at 22:37 by amara

I know I recently made a thread covers this topic.

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 Days I have attended is that feeling intimidated and scared of others is probably a more...

Why So Serious? Why Not?

Posted 10th April 2016 at 21:22 by amara

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...
