The Next Step

Although that course shouldn't be my business anymore, unfortunately it kind of still is. In the shape of all the seemingly endless silly forms I have to fill, that it seems so very difficult to actually get a certificate that I've actually made it those very long two months and so on. These last two weeks I should have been taking it easy, recover, trying to get back to sleeping like usual again. Instead I also had to deal with a lot of less than... well, good stuff. Sigh.

Though even if this is my life and my adversities they're of course nothing like suffering from hurricanes and earthquakes...

The latest news from the course is that the organizers keep avoiding the fact that I've escaped from there, they for some reason adamantly refuse to answer any questions from the other participants as to why I haven't been there for some weeks. Which is totally weird. But at least now they should now through the one I've confided in ever since the beginning of this mess.

The now ongoing five weeks of traineeship is a complete fiasco - no surprise there... - all those remaining that hadn't manage to get a traineeship were of course sadly enough left all to their own devices - quite the very contrary to what was promised when we began the course - and were ordered to sit down and call companies fulltime to get a trainee job.

The very few that had actually managed to find a traineeship on their own have heard absolutely nothing from the organizer while there. It's surreal beyond words that the organizer actually hasn't bothered to get in touch with respective company before the traineeship period began. Dumbstruck coursewise. Once again.

If it wasn't causing so many problems for so many people, not to mention costing a whole lot of money, resources and valuable time, the mess of it all would be award-winning laughable. That the organizer actually has a decent enough website that promises the moon over and over is... mindblowing, to say the least.

I wonder when I will be able to put this whole darn thing finally and for good behind me... One day. When I least expect it. And yes, as usual things will improve, a bit here, a bit there, day by day.

This afternoon I have an appointment with yet another *career*coach. Frankly I'm slightly hesitant about this particular person, let's just say that she hasn't impressed me by emails and phone. But who knows, things and intentions do get lost through wires, she might be quite alright face to face.

At least I'm rather intrigued to find out if she can actually add something new and possibly give a plausible answer to this huge question-exclamation mark as to why I haven't been able to find a newish way in life. One that actually pays the bills.

Yummie, I love water from puddles and my all time fave, water from dirty containers! Mum is scared I will get worms and bugs, she doesn't know how tasty it is!

Hi Pia, I think we sent you Eric and Flynns comment - how funny!! You must be frustrated with this course, good luck!

Ha, ha, yes I think you probably slipped with your paw on the keyboard there, Poppy Q - but the kitties and dog here do like to drink dirty water too.

Well, the course is over for me, or should be, it's just a whole lot of annoying paper stuff going on still plus the fact that I find it *quite* annoying that I actually spent 2 months more than fulltime with it. On the other hand, if I hadn't I wouldn't have met the nice ones I did met at the course...

I can understand your annoyance - the whole thing sounded like a complete shambles. Such a waste of everyone's time and money.

Good luck with putting it all behind you - and with your new coach...

What a mess Pia! Love and hugs to you :)

Thanks, aforkful and holler!

My friend who was one of the *lucky* ones who did get a traineeship bumped into one of those guys who instead got five weeks of *vacation*, he seemed rather dispirited about it all, go figure...
