Today was supposed be a day off from work, a day of rest but instead I did more than I would normally and more than I would like. I woke up after 8pm, showered, got dressed (female t-shirt, mum could tell) and headed out to the probation office, there was a terrible surprise waiting for me today, my volunteer mentor. My case worker could see I was unhappy with not being warned, she called me out on it and this generated good discussion. She pointed out how I looked happier/more confident and I told her about how I passed the assessment centre, that I was proud of myself, later she and my mentor congratulated me. The mentor is a female, early 30s, confident looking – I avoided looking at her. Ultimately the conversation was the same as always, I’m asked what kind of club I want to join and I have nothing to suggest so we keep talking about a “walking” club. Not sure how this relationship is going to progress from talking about stuff to me actually taking part with her assistance.
At home I binge ate and unwound for a couple of hours before prepping for another adventure, this time to a job interview, I wore a full suit and departed. The heat ensured that I sweated within minutes. The location wasn’t difficult to find but kind observers could see I was a little lost and pointed me in the right direction twice, surprising for something like this to occur during such a short journey, didn’t expect this sort of eagerness to assist.
The pre-interview process was sloppy in my opinion, I was first directed to a station where my documents would be checked, there were a bunch of kids around, two of them pakis, talking about Ramadan like it was normal, I don’t understand how these people have better social skills/integration ability than me. I browsed 4chan on my phone as I was waiting to be called in for the actual interview, someone moved me along again, they chatted, I was open about this being my backup option. The interviewers were an older woman and a younger one, both rather upbeat, easy to communicate with, there were laughs, I can’t see myself not getting the job, there were only three questions, feel bad that I’m ultimately going to turn it down.
After that triviality was over (though I did initially feel like running away), I sauntered on to my laser session. Somehow my laser on my fingers/hands is more painful than face, I had to ask for a break. My technician seems a little off/cold today but I was just glad to bring the day to a close. Saw a Chinese woman at the clinic, unusual.
At home I watched WWE Raw and YouTube videos about anime, anything else was too much effort.
A good day, I suppose, people are clearly comfortable around me and that’s an important factor when it comes to making friends.
