I recently started working after graduating from university 6 months ago. This is the first time I am working again after my previous job and I got to admit - it feels good to actually start working again.
I was always dreading the workplace since my placement job as I was bullied at my placement job and was overwhelmed by it. I did not really enjoy it and hated the people working there except one or two. I recently decided to man up and take on a lot of life's problems and responsibilities myself and started applying for jobs since I came back from holiday in September. I realised that in order to be respected within society- you need to work hard and play hard. I have always been against the dole and never claimed from the dole. The ride wasn't too easy but I managed to bag a job for now. So far, I like the people working there as a lot of them are young people who all recently graduated. It is very diverse too and although I feel that the job isn't really related to what I studied for - I am liking it. Learning a lot and actually feeling like a real man feels good. Waking up earlier too, but I need to start watching my diet.
Everything aside, is this normal?
Also, as my job is temporary what should I do whilst I am there - i.e. connect with people etc?
Have you done any of these?
