This is going to sound annoying. Living in a town for 29 years, all I ever heard by others is that I'm so quiet. They literally couldn't get a word out of me. I was too busy daydreaming in my head to realize how I looked on the outside. I actually never knew it made me look stupid. Non-family can be vigorous that way. I always used MD as a way to escape my frustrations, but it did me more harm that good, so I had to quit. It was the best decision I made. 

What reasons did you start doing MD? We're their any social issues involved that triggered this?

By the way, did you watch William Shatner fly into space?

This is kind of scary. When I got my degree in graphic design, I believed I was going to get a decent job. I was wrong. It was very competitive and challenging out there. I didn't make it in a design agency or a boutique. I worked for warehouses, private businesses, online stores, offices at freelanced at home. My contracts were always short and I had to hop to another company. Employers often complained about my defective communication skills, inability to think and work fast and independently, failure to create very professional looking designs and take on directions, nor be able to meet demanding expectations. After 11 years of falling on my face so much, I realize I'm not cut out for graphic design and should've stuck to the arts. 

Now it's like I'm starting from ground zero. I'm looking at local college secondary career certificate programs of interest, researching the labour market and graduate benefits. I need to determine what program will guarantee that I get a job after I graduate.

My dad is right, complacency gets you nowhere. I'm starting to get stressed out, have things to sort out. Not sure if I'll get a job anytime soon, and thinking of attending a local college.

Have you ever lost or forget things at times, due to daydreaming?

I must confess, real life has nothing to do with my fantasies, even my expectations. I always wondered why things were just never working out, all these years.

You're in much better shape than I am. I feel like I'm sunk. It's like I was in outer space when I was making career choices and wasn't paying attention. Now I'm fully awake and choked up about what to do next.

I see why I get so groggy in the morning. I wake up before daybreak, roughly 4-5, or even earlier, and then I go back to sleep. I wake up at 9 feeling shifty. It feels so bad, and can last a couple hours. I should never break my sleep cycle.

I still haven't officially decided on a program. It's getting overwhelming, applications are due in November.

Programming is easy if you can learn it. I tried, but it isn't getting in to my head well. I'm settling for business roles now, so that my interpersonal skills can be of some use.

I picked two occupational focuses that aren't the right fit for me, Drafting and Programming, so those are crossed out. I considered Interior decorating or design, but the second career program I'm in can't find one that's 52 weeks long. So now I have spend this week researching another occupation. Ugh.
