08.05.2006 – Monday 8 May – Depression
- • I started washing up last night’s dishes, and suddenly felt sick, having to sit down and eventually going back to bed.
- • I was on my way walking to Centrelink when I got a call from Anita at UQ, informing me that, while they were impressed with me, I had not got the job as they’d needed someone with more change management and testing experience, and they did not usually take graduates. She suggested I look for consultancy positions. Then, once I got to Centrelink, I found that I had to fill in two fortnightly forms, both overdue, and both requiring that I list four employers I contacted during their respective fortnights—something I can’t do as I not only did not contact that many employers during that time, but I also cannot access my computer. This led to depression, as it all seemed somewhat hopeless—everything was ganging up on me.
- • I walked into the city and walked home with Bronwen, who managed to cheer me up somewhat.
