So far this year has felt like a blur to me. I have not been motivated to do anything or confident at anything. I stopped caring about school and I just sat in front of the computer when I came home from school. I didn't have a job or do anything after school - I had too much time on my hands. I would have schoolwork and study, but I would tell myself I'd do it later.. but then get into bed and remember I hadn't actually gone back to do it. Result? Fallen a little behind. I mean, I didn't fail (well, except for Biology) I just didn't try at home. Which I need to start.
I was also in desperate need of a job, as I am going to France for two weeks next holidays with school and I can't let my parents pay the whole $4900. Probably about a month and a few weeks ago, I printed out some resumes and forms and took them to different shops at Westfield. Last Thursday, I got a call from Target asking if I was interested in a job interview for the next day.. uh OF COURSE I WAS. So I went in on Friday morning and had the interview (thought I wasn't gonna get it) and then I got a call that afternoon saying that my "application has been successful".. RESULT. Then I had induction on Monday :) I get $10.43 an hour :D
Three months ago I turned sixteen. I finally went for my L's today. Passed with 100% :D
Point of this post? I think that getting a job has been my turning point. I was confident enough to go for my L's and I'm actually feeling a lot happier now. I also got a hair cut today.. I got heaps off - literally. If you look further back to that photo with my friends a few posts back, to the photo I'm about to post - I got a fair bit off. Mum now says that maybe it's the "new Emma" .. well, maybe it is.
