Right now every day is a hard struggle full of fights, tantrums, sleepless nights, anxiety and being broke. BUT! It’s all going to be worth it in the end. A few weeks ago I posted some questions about studying and employment for myself. Since then I have done the responsible alcohol and gambling courses and passed. I was especially pleased because these were the first tests i’d completed and passed in 16 years. Yay me. Then I enrolled in 3 awesome free courses to show employers that I had current knowledge and was prepared to commit until the finishing line. I am still sticking with my crappy catalogue/newspaper delivery job because at least it pays for my courses and again shows that I am committed. I rang up TAFE to apply for my admin course that I started 12 years ago but never finished when I became pregnant. This time around I will complete it though. I have given myself the courage to apply for some jobs today so please wish me luck!
