I got a call from the manager at a place I applied at, I have really bad phone anxiety but if it's only for a short time I can brave it out. My cellphone has speaker problems though so she could hardly hear me so I had to hang up and call her on my home phone. I different person answered and I forgot the name of the woman I was talking to and so I just tried to explain that I was talking to her but the call was interrupted. She was confused but realized I was talking about the manager and put her on the phone. The manager sounded really nice and now I have a job interview on Tuesday, I'm sort of nervous about it, but I've already went to two job interviews so hopefully this won't be too bad.

After months of fear, I have finally given in my CV to some companies, for jobs which I never would have considered before. I just hope I get the chance to have an interview.

I went to the beach with my friend and his sisters. Tonight and last night were the first nights I've had significant conversations with strangers in a looong time.

Went to a class at a job center. Had to speak in front of the class. I was really nervous to speak in front of them, but I'm glad I did it. Hopefully I get better at it.

Today I went to Staples to drop off a package, except their Internet was down so they couldn't process my box. So I went to another location that would accept it. There was this guy in his 50s who took my package. A couple observations: he seemed friendly and he sounded like he smokes.

And throughout both of these visits I didn't come across as awkward, hurray?

I finally applied for a job myself today, all the other applications were done by the job agency. Hopefully, the next few applications will be easier.

Had to speak in front of the class again. I was so nervous that I hardly took deep breaths. Everyone was nice and encouraging me, though. I started tearing up because this lady said some nice things about me to the class afterwards. After things like this, I would be mortified, but my anxiety went back down quickly so I guess I'm improving. It also helped to know that the others were nervous, too.

Step dad offered me to go fishing with me today.
I denied and instantly i remembered the negative thoughts need to be silenced. so i replied with a yes right after i sent him a "no thanks"
He was happy i went. and surprised and so was I .
I caught 5 small mouth bass and enjoyed myself.

I still felt horrible but at the end of the day i enjoyed it.

little steps.

Finished the class I'm going to miss it a little. We did mock interviews today and I did pretty good, even though I talked low and was nervous. I wasn't as nervous as I was yesterday, which was a surprise.
