30th bday been and gone.

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

I had my 30th birthday in February, and I went shopping. I think I am finally mature in that I bought a stuffed toy cat and then I realised I actually don’t want any more toys. I am glad. I am a bit slow to get to that point but at least now I know I don’t have this soft toy addiction anymore.
I am a little sad to be 30, unmarried and jobless. But I have a few friends (which I never thought I could get) and also I am healthy. I am living in a nice flat which can be a bit lonely because these people aren’t my friends… so it’s hard to make conversation. Also my joblessness is a bit annoying to them, I think.
However I really want a job, and I’m not a quitter so I am sure I will get one soon. Actually there are a lot of jobless people in my country. I think expectations are too high from prospective employers. Education and training is expensive here, so most people can’t afford it, and employers don’t want entry-level employees who they would have to train. So there are a lot of people like me who want to work and are willing to be trained on the job but employers won’t give us a chance. Even the supermarkets aren’t hiring.
I have applied for a lot of jobs last year and will apply for many more this year also. I have already been applying, of course! It being March already!
Well, I would really love to work with unemployed people and help cheer them up and encourage them. That would be a good job. Also, there are a lot of people who don’t fit customer service work and I would like for them to get help. There simply aren’t enough jobs. There are also people who have mental issues or illness who don’t fit the usual job-seeker profile. They should be given work they can do at home or in a factory or something.
The truth is, a lot of small businesses fail in this country. So do some bigger businesses, like factories in smaller towns. So people lose work, even if they have been working in a place for years.
I would love a job I could do for my lifetime. I would be happy to feel some job security.
Enough! I am getting depressed.
It is so easy to get depressed when you have no job and nothing to do all day but look for work and wait for calls. I don’t like having nothing to occupy my mind. I need to work. I think most people do, it is inbuilt within us to need a purpose or some work. Most people can’t relax for long, needing work to keep their body and mind occupied.
I am one of those people, and it has nothing to do with my intelligence (although my I.Q. is apparently above average). I think I.Q. tests are inconsequential, btw. And even if they aren’t… what good is intelligence without a purpose? That’s like having a good car that you only use to drive to the supermarket once a week. Intelligence without drive is useless.
So that’s another thing I want to do. Try to find a purpose for my existence.
Well, I meant to post something about … something else. I can’t believe I got sidetracked and forgot. What was it now…I simply cannot remember!
Well, have a good day.
Remember us jobless ones.
God Bless you.
