Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow with friends and family.
This month has been really hectic for me, so it has made quite a significant impact on the time I spent on DA. All this month I've been trying my best to get a job - I've been searching around on websites as well as inquiring within the stores itself. So far there's no such luck which freaking sucks if you ask me. I mean, I'm trying to be patient but sometimes it's just so frustrating. I just hope I can get a job in the New Year then I can have my own source of income rather than signing on with the Job Centre every two weeks. Believe me, it's so degrading and they don't even help you at all. I don't see the point in them existing when you have these Work Programs popping up and they're doing the job that the Job Centre is meant to be doing.
Also, around a week and a half ago I finished my Crossroads course and I received a certificate along with a letter of recommendation for future employment. Since it's now over that doesn't mean to say I won't take any lessons I have learnt on the course. I've made it my goal to work on my self confidence little by little every day just so that I can enjoy life and be a much successful and better person than I originally was before.
My family and I have been majorly busy with Christmas preparations since early on this month as in buying the Christmas food as well as buying Christmas presents for one another too. Because of this, I've become more focused on spending more time with my family than spending as much time on DA. There have been a few times during this month I went to see my grandparents with my dad because I just wanted to see how they were getting on and being a better granddaughter to them - I went with dad to see them two or three times almost every week.
Moreover I'm doing everything I can to help out my family because we've been kinda struggling with money and we had to replace a few items that went wrong. Even though I'm not working I've helped them out a few times by giving them some money because I care about them. Family always comes first no matter what.
Tomorrow we're spending Christmas Day up my nan and grandad's house, so pretty much we'll be up there all day and return home during the evening. Don't ask me what we're doing on Boxing Day because I have no idea. I'm not sure if we're going up to my grandparents' house again or if we're bringing them down over here. And not only that, we have to sort out a plan regarding Tigger and Rocky because we don't know what to do with them tomorrow. If we bring them along with us, then we have to take a litter tray as well as some other bits and pieces. If we leave them home, it's not fair on them because they have to be both fed twice a day. As you can see, we're facing a bit of a dilemma here.
Having said that, I wish of you a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully next year will be much better than this year!
