awesomeness!
I have a gmail tab usually open. I have become a little more worried about the google influence in my life. I have an android, I use gmail, i watch a lot of youtube videos, I recently switched back to firefox - the wholesomeness of mozilla made me feel something like "special". when I was at school everything was google too, our e-mail, we shared everything on google docs and drives. I mean there was a time when it was like "YEAH! google" but now it has become kinda like "here, its google, take it" not to mention, and I mean, I'm not that special, but they have to know a lot about me.

I seem to be on a tame impala loop with youtube. its okay.

TTF and I am writingthis

***just had to take a time out because I get myself randomly worked up for no reason and forget to breathe and then start to have digestive problems, I feel better now. I'm not too sure if sobriety is all its cracked up to be, but I am learning a lot about who I am, and that is rad***

I have a Wikipedia article about Afghanistan open. I was sitting on my couch and had a vague recollection of this region that was both Greek influenced and Buddhist, I thought that was a strange combo so the chain of events went as such: wikipedia indo-greek kingdom > Kabul > Afghanistan

Lastly a Wikipedia tab entitled: History of the Jews in Afghanistan. I took an intro to Judaism course at uni, it was interesting. I also took a Buddhism course at uni, so the whole thing with the indo-greek kingdom all kinda meshes together.

***another time out. I kinda want to delete this, but I'm just gonna keep going***

I don't really know what I am doing with my life. I haven't had a job since November of 2015. I finished university in December of 2016. I really thought once I was finished everything was just going to take off. I feel like I've always been able to make things happen. I guess for the most part I didn't have any education and if I wanted to be a barista there wasn't really any competition for the work. The economy of the area I am in had been better in the past as well. There doesn't seem to be anything going on right now.

When I finished university in December there were a few conversations but the work wasn't especially meaningful. In February I had an interview for my old dream job in wine, but I was so nervous I spoiled the opportunity. I feel like it was kind of a sign that maybe the wine dream had come to its natural end, that and I don't drink...

I made a huge push to reach out to the oil and gas companies in the region, but nothing had come of that.

2 weeks ago I had an interview with a national bank for a part-time teller role. They seemed to want me to have a designation that would allow me to sell mutual funds, I can get the money to get the designation, but it would seem more logical if they paid me and I could use that money to get the designation and then transition out of the part-time opportunity.

This week I had a telephone interview to be a lot attendant at a car dealership, they didn't call me back... with that I decided maybe i need to reconsider the west coast. I've sent out a couple of resumes. I guess I can also go after that securities course and hope the bank picks me up.

That's all I've got going on right now.

here you're talking about 5.75 years ago? you said you finished in december 2016.

where are you living? at least in the U.S., i'm under the impression that companies are desperate for new hires, at least in many (but not all) industries. do you have something in your background that gets in your way? or you just don't always do great in interviews? it's kinda difficult for me to figure out what the problem is.

i know it's lame to say, but keep at it. and keep in touch. also please keep writing here (if you want or if it's helpful). i'm trying to check-in more frequently.
