I would feel quite vulnerable if I went on holiday on my own. But still, I like the idea.

I just had a 2 hour-long convo with my old best friend from home. She didn't say whether or not I should could home - she said to make a list of the pros and cons, which makes sense. At least I'll have a friend if I do decide to go back. She hates Northampton too though. It's a depressing town but I guess it's just a place to live. I won't go back if I don't have a job or something temporary to go back to. I might stay up tonight and search, if anyone fancies helping :tongue:. This isn't to say I've made up my mind, though. I will see how I feel at the weekend.
Hun, this is exactly what I did when I came home. I thought I'd make up a plan so I had something here. But it fell through and now look at me. I'm job hunting online now...it's hard If you come home though, we will definitely meet up (if you want that is?)

I have no idea. I am not good at anything. See, this is the problem. I like cats. I wouldn't mind helping people. And I love writing, even though I suck at it.

And yes, pink; I'd like that. I want to meet both of you.

More than I've got to go on! I've got - Like horses/animals but don't want to work with them, need lots of variety in my work (I can't be stuck in an office all day!) and I want to be directly helping people.

Hence why I'm coming to the conclusion that I may up sticks and work towards becoming a paramedic. I'm just about to draw up a pro/cons list of leaving uni and exacting my plan... I think they're really helpful. :hugs:

Do you have any music recommendations?

:hugs: Yeah, lots of rubbish things happening in a short space of time.

Mainly my mum dying from cancer though, that made everything seem worse. Also being pretty ill myself and a few other things.

Music? What kind?

If you haven't heard it already - Day and Age by The Killers, it's a stormin' album. Several tracks that I love... Dustland Fairytale and Spaceman, and Losing Touch!

I'm going to write my list now

This is dreadful, despicable and inexcusable. In the last interview I had, the management made out I was the perfect candidate for the job. I believe the fact that I was honest about my mental health had an impact on their decision. So I would probably choose not to disclose that information. How dare they penalise this poor woman. It is absolutely disgraceful. I am really angry about that. Mental health does not equate incompetence. Anyone with that perception ought to watch the BBC documentary 'How Mad Are You'. I am fuming. :mad: This is one of the reasons I want to be self-employed. We should all team together and come up with some amazing company :tongue:

I swear they just started an anti-prejudice campaign against employers who penalise or exclude those with mental health problems. One step forward, ten steps back, in my opinion. **** society.

Just look at Stephen Fry!!!!!!

I am so incredibly sorry. That would kill me. My mum has cancer, too. It is a terrible disease. I was crying about it today. I feel so helpless. Sorry, you probably don't want to know this. I have no idea what it must be like for you. But you are in my thoughts. Lots of hugs :hugs:.

No. But I am leaning towards that idea.
