It's a new week. Lots of fresh challenges ahead; things I want to do, and over come.
Top of that list? Right now, finding a new job. I've been unemployed for almost two months now, and truth be told in all that time I've not really tried. You know?
I mean, fair enough I've put myself forwards for various things. Yes, I've also looked through a fair amount online. But nothing crazy. I haven't been that fanatical job searcher you probably need to be when throwing yourself into something like the creative industries.
Today then. A new week. Lots of opportunities. What will I find?!
Not a lot, to be honest. A few positions I'm not qualified for. Some more that look alright, and I probably will apply for. Not that stand out as an amazing chance.
I know I need to learn how to drive. It'd mean I could apply for runners positions (which make up 90% of Mt First Job in Film/TV ads). I don't expect it's a glamorous position; but at this point I need to push myself out any TV or Film production that would have me. THEN I get qualified for those other roles, and things snowball from there.
I'll look to start lessons ASAP.
Me and Gabi argued over this tonight. She thinks I'm naive, and although she never said it, I think she feels I should give up the dream. But I can't!! There's still a chance. I don't want to look back and think I didn't chase it fully.
