Look at my response to Satch's post. The same seams apropriat for you.
That's honestly sad to hear Simon, the same goes for Satch's earlier post. You're both trying your hardest to get somewhere and I know you'll both get that happiness in a career you love Badger dear speaks truth!
Woe there Natalie. You've made some really important changes in your life, and all in quick succession. Take some time to let the world catch up. You're bound to feel discomboobilated, anyone would. Take things slowly, find your feet and enjoy the journey.
I know the feeling exactly. My problem is that I'm not located anywhere near London, and that seems to be the only place that much work is. I need to be getting regular work to be able to afford to move down there though and I'm only really getting bits and bobs here and there. It's a wholly depressing industry for new starters.
I'm sorry to hear what you're going through, Joelio. Message me if you ever need to talk.
Only just seen this post after the weekend, but thank you
I may have some better news to share soon, fingers crossed. Need to overcome the anxiety issues first though
Still struggling to sort my weight issues Which is knocking my confidence a bit. Still also struggling to get a job, but that might change soon, hopefully.
Oh, and a so-called close mate who I shall call X decided to start going off with someone who I used to be friends with, who I shall call Y. Would be fine, but that friendship with Y ended in a rather spectacular, but very childish on Y's part, way, with X present, and X telling me Y wasn't worth my time or energy.
I found this out, through Facebook of all things. Not happy, so now both X and Y are deleted, blocked, and out of my life. X has also started the trick that Y did before that friendship ended, of simply ignoring all texts, Facebook messages etc.
If anyone understands that, I'll be amazed, but basically that's 2 close friends I've managed to lose in the space of a year. I think it must be me...
Oddly, I did a similar essay earlier in the year. Just involve Lady MacBeth guilt tripping Macbeth into doing it and stuff with pressure. I wish you luck!
Stevie your comment seems to ignored and I feeling very sorry for you in this moment of time. Its a shame your friend has started to block you out of his life and I know you've been having problems identifying your sexual preferance, could it be that whats bugging him? (Please don't take this in a offensive manner.) I personaly hate it when people start talking about sexual orientation, I also am very confused in this moment in time with building freindships and trying to discover my sexuality.I'm not sure if im straight,gay or Bi-curious? huh
Still short of getting my honours degree so another summer of coursework beckons.
Thanks Joseph.. It's not my sexual confusion, because he knows nothing about it. I'm just really distraught right now, because we used to be so close, and now I just feel so paranoid and I can't seem to trust anybody. It seems to me now, everyone is just trying to stab me in the back, with any chance they get..
Might it be worth confronting your friend over this to find out the reasons why? Once you find out then you can see about rescuing that friendship or leaving it and moving on. I won't speculate over what they may have stopped being close to you for but working up the courage to speak about your upset towards that situation could make them realise that this is a problem you both need to make the effort to tie up, not just leave you to deal with the emotional stress.
Also, those worrying about sexuality, like...don't.
Please don't feel the need to ever crowbar something as fluid and personal as emotion into solid categories set by other people, just be yourself, and maybe one day you'll be in a position where you can confidently define yourself in a certain way, but that should never come before just being happy with yourself and your emotions, and not trying to suppress feelings for something as petty as gender.
I've resisted posting on here in the past as I never like to be negative, but everytime I log onto Facebook i'm grinding myself down over the 2:1s and 1:1s I see each day it seems.
Whilst I am happy for those that pass with flying colours, unfortunately I've failed my second year at university due to a groupwork module where I only obtained 37 marks, with the pass mark required being 40. I'm totally gutted as I was seemingly the person to put the most effort uinto it according to our peer assessments, and then still failed.
I really enjoy marketing though, so I am determined not to give up.
Feel like crap tonight and at the point of crying.
Haven't felt this bad in ages.
Have come to the realization it might soon be time to say goodbye to our beloved 12 year old golden retriever. I see how he is day to day and I don't think I can bear to see him suffer much longer.
But at the same time there's a (selfish) part of me that doesn't want to lose him because it'd be so upsetting :'(
Is it definitely beyond redemption?
At my Uni, 40% was the pass mark, but anything 30-40% was called a 'soft fail'. Each student was entitled to one set of compensation credits (can't remember whether it was one a year, or one overall...), which could be used on a soft-failed module. The module would still count as being failed on your transcript, and the 30-40% would still go towards your overall average, but you'd get credits for the module and be able to progress to the next year. I certainly soft-failed a module, and got comp. credits, and went on to complete my degree.
No idea how unique that was to my Uni, though I would expect other universities to have something in place, especially for a group work module. It's worth talking to your Tutor, Head of Department, Dean of Students and even your Students' Union, though, just to make absolutely sure that there's definitely no other option there for you.
I have been back into such a depressed state tonight. Broke down crying twice. I feel like the whole world is against me, and is trying to trip me up and stab me in the back. I have nothing to look forward to. Nobody to turn to, for comfort.
I'm so friggin' sick of feeling like this, especially when I though it was over...
