Feeling a bit down

A bit of a vent on here, because if I vent to anyone else they'll tell me to "manifest a better outcome" or something else I don't want to hear. And sometimes its nice just to know there are other people out there.

So I think I am going to lose my job soon. I never really felt right there and in a way I am happy to leave, but at the same time I'm really bummed out, as it was a good job and I am going to be sooo broke now.

I think I'm going to have to move, living here and keeping my horse close by is going to cost too much so I'll need to find cheaper stuff as I am not selling my horse. But this time of year is tricky, I won't be able to find work or a house until about mid January at least I think, with all the holidays. Being here hasn't worked out, I've been here for 3-4 months now and still haven't got any friends really, I've tried but nothings working.

My family is driving me nuts. Christmas is just awful sometimes. Drama after drama. My uncle really kind of hates me which is a bit hard. The arguments are already starting and we have a week till Christmas... and by them half of them will be fuming... or drunk.

On the upside (sort of) I bought a saddle and its being posted to me! This was before the job problems, but I am pretty excited, I need one. Can't wait till I get it, hopefully it will come before Christmas! And two more days of work then holidays! And I am going to ride everyday and if I lose my job I'll just ride even more all summer long.

Thanks for listening folks.

Rant away! This is as good a place to do that as any. It is kind of a glum time. Don't know why, but many bad things have happended lately, both personal and public (the shooting in Connecticutt) that have left a rather negative pall over me and others I have talked with .
I was thinking I might need to actually go to church, to be reminded as to what Christmas is REALLY about. Not plugging church or religiion here. I am NOT a religious person. But, I did think a different perspective might help me.

Here's what Wet Willie has to say about it.....from many years back......

Well you say you got the blues,

Got holes in both of your shoes,

Feelin alone and confused,

You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Yeah, you're about to go insane,

Cause your womans playing games

And she says that you're to blame,

You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain

Rollin with the changes til the sun comes out again

Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain

Rollin with the changes, singin this refrain

Singin in a honky tonk cafe,

Nobody's hearin what you play,

They're too busy drinkin anyway,

You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Brother keep on smiling

You say you found a peace of land

Going to change from city boy to country man

Try to build your life with your hands

You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Sorry to hear all of this, especially at this time of year! I understand the job thing is something to do with qualifications, not your performance, so perhaps you can have a chat with your boss once you are certain you're going to have to leave, and see if they can't give you a little time to line up something else? There are often temp jobs over the summer period because people go away, but also keep an eye out for anything where they're looking to replace someone who's on maternity leave. My whole career as a researcher started from me taking a 6 week temp job as a student admin assistant while their usual assistant was on an internship overseas - and I know of lots of other cases where temporary has become permanent! Also - you're at uni aren't you? Check to see if the uni has any jobs available, universities are great places to work because you generally have a lot of rights and support as a staff member thanks to very strong unions, and pay is way better than in other areas.

Ugh, family dramas! Great contributor to the emergency room waiting list at Christmastime lol. I know it's hard but sometimes you have to just cut off communication with difficult family members - both parties end up being happier, even if everyone else is always trying to organise a reunion *sigh*. Just say "I'm sorry, but I don't have a relaxing time when Uncle so-and-so is around because we just don't see eye-to-eye". End of, don't take any wheedling or questioning for details. Stand firm! I always try and avoid family at Christmas - my mum is trying to convince me to go to the extended family Christmas party but I know I'll just end up having a fight with my brother (who I deliberately haven't seen in 3 years) and getting annoyed by the bigoted views of some of my aunts and cousins.

Post piccies of your new saddle when it arrives! On the horse, off the horse, side, front, back, top, with you in it, on the cat, LOTS AND LOTS OF PICCIES!
