    Everything is going fine at the moment :) Went to my place of work it was usual thing of customers, making cups of tea and coffee. Yet still no sign of going back on the till. Anyway made some really good progress today with Open University.

    Open University + Student Finance
    Rang up Student Finance England regarding my application as they would accept my course and they couldn't help me, so I rang up the Open University and it turns out that I submitted a full time application instead of a part time even though I am doing a full time degree course. So I got home and cancelled the application that I had on the system, then submitted a new one already for 2016-2017.

    A-Level English Literature + A-Level English Language and Literature

    I also put in my diary of the dates the deadlines I am going to use for assignments and coursework. I have also synced with Open University deadlines and this time I am going to stick to them.

    Plan for each week of study

    In previous years I have been really disorganized with study and this has had major influence in my mental health so this time I am going to grab a notebook and write down a plan for each of the week and I am going to make use of the my Iphone reminders/tasks facility and write down the specific tasks that I need to accomplish throughout day and stick to it.

    Jobseeking is going really well at the moment, I have interviews lined up for the next couple of weeks and I am preparing a lot beforehand which is good.

    I got turned down for an interview for a job. I fear that I am going to get laid off again so am applying like crazy. I know if it takes too long then I will get suicidal again and I like being non-suicidal. Trouble is I have had a lot of short term jobs and it doesn't look well on my resume/cv. But I got to keep trying.
    Have a great day SF!

    Yeah, I can't believe it's August already. We're in the 4th quarter of the year. The weather only gets bleak from here :p
    Today I did some shopping, and it was warm and sunny, so that was nice. Trying not to have a panic attack over my job interview tomorrow.
