I’m doing it again, the blog hiatus thing*. Somehow I always manage to blog for a while and then I forget it again for an extended period of time. It gets quite annoying really and it also kinda pisses me off, even though I probably have zero readers :S
*This is an import from the LiveJournal. There I had a gap between July and November.
Anyway, my life is in a bit of turmoil at this point. I no longer have a right to government study financing (you can only get that for 7 years max) so I’m kinda out of money 😀 So i’ve been looking for a job. I’ve always avoided that while I was studying, I was really enjoying my carefree student days where school was the only thing to worry about and I had loads of free time. Add to that that I never really figured out what I want anyway (leading to various studies that never really became anything :S)
I can’t avoid it any longer though and am currently in a process that looks promising enough. There’s a test coming Monday and if that goes well an interview and if that goes well I have a job at customer service for the government agency that handles unemployment benefits and find-a-job processes and such (UWV, for the dutchies). This would be a lovely opportunity as it is a definite 2-3 year job for 24-32 hours a week, leaving me plenty of time to figure out what I want and where I’m going.
As I’m going through this whole process of looking for a job, I noticed I’m suddenly making a little leap in my maturation process. Before, I was really dreading the idea of entering the working world and it was even making me feel somewhat depressed. Combined with my introvertness and less-than-stellar social skills, I started the job-hunting process purposefully sabotaging myself on occasion. Postponing responding to something “just one more day” since “it’s already 4 and they won’t read it until tomorrow anyway”.
Now, however, I find that I’m actually looking forward to getting a job and entering working life and building some structure and routine into my existence… It was quite baffling to me 😀
So we’ll see how this test thing goes, the brochure gave some examples and based on that (it is aimed at people of an educational level somewhat below mine) it shouldn’t be too difficult. And if prepare myself before hand, I can prep myself enough that the interview shouldn’t be too difficult either. So, fingers crossed X.
Oh, and btw, I have a big book update scheduled for tomorrow ’cause I’ve read a lot more since the last update posted 🙂
