i've been denying it to myself for a few weeks now, but today i've snapped and am ready to admit i'm feeling quite shitty again.
hopefully it'll be a passing thing, but there's a fair few things in flux in my life right now and i can just tell that if my plans fail and i'm stuck in my job for another year something nasty's going to happen.
i was searching the other night on basically every careers website i could think of, and there are literally NO jobs suitable for me in my area. i'm at the stage where i hate my current job so much, i'm willing to do ANYTHING at all but all the non-catering ones require qualifications i don't have because i flaked out on school before sitting my exams, and i've been in a catering job for two years and if i have to smile politely at another person who asks for a 'coffee latte' (y'know, as opposed to those sewage lattes you also get) or grovel at the feet of some disgusting old posho who's just spilled scalding hot soup all over me i think i'll go on a murderous rampage which i'll probably end up regretting.
hopefully i can get into college, do my highers, go to uni and then end up as a really, really cool teacher and make all the kids dead interested in microbes or buddhism or whatever i end up teaching, but i'm catastrophising right now and the only future i can see for myself is a grubby existence being an absolute frustrated dickhead of a catering manager with an alcohol problem. and all my staff will have horrid and creative code names for me.
i've lost my thread but i think it says a lot about you guys here that i feel comfortable writing stuff like this here even though i like never post anymore. go you guys!!!
