Facing the "Job World"

"Success is a journey,
Not a destination".

I saw this quote in a portrait...
A landscape with a quote on it.
I decided to share it with you... ^^

It isn't easy.
Like someone said to me, the economy is pretty bad.
However, DO NOT let that bring you down.
Nothing is impossible and aim for your dreams
They say the good, sucessful persons are the ones
Who once were big dreamers.

Put faith in it, in case you believe.
Put your effort as well...
Believe it or not, I've been around 14 diferent sites
Searching for a job plus few stores...
I took 5 to 6 months but I think I made it now.

Now my advices...
1 - Do a account (if you want, optional)
For your work/professional stuff.
Use that adress to reply to job offers
Or for employers/companies to reach you.

* So, it'll help you organize
...That way you are less likely to mix personal emails
With stuff related to your job search or future company
Or doing mistakes while you're sending a reply...
Of something personal/informal
To a company...*

2 - Confidence in front of others.
Don't give up.

3 - Being polite too.
Not too much...
Otherwise it'll give the wrong impression...

4 - Being honest.

5 - Not dressing too formal NOR too sloppy.
I personally don't mind much looks
But they do...!

6 - Having copies of the resumé (aka CV) at hands
Plus a copy of your documents or School certificate...
You'll never know if you will need it or not.

7 - You got to think you're there for the job
And not mind for possible competition
If you focus on the competition and others
You will most likely get nervous. So don't.

8 - Careful with the information you give out.

9 - Value your qualities! :
- Whether is a sport you done in the past,
- A association you were in, diplomas, ect.
- Artistic related hobbies, languages you know/speak,
- The datas you were in school, the subjects you had...
- Previous jobs and experience...Part-time jobs, ect.

10 - Magic Word :
Being immediately available.
They want to know people who are in
For working right away.
They are not for jokes nor indecisions
That's my explanation...
They seek someone serious
And willing to work.

Note * Choose and write wisely.
A well made Curriculum is a big chance
For them to accept you...Good luck !! :)

p.s.: Someone today sent me this...
"every dark mist,
there is always a sun rise
waiting to happen ^_^ "

...The person was right. **

Music XV

I decided to add this one song...

Inspiring Song II

I was checking out some songs of some series
Then I bumped into songs from Plumb (a Christian band)
This one caught my interest...
Not only for the meaning implied,
But it had some interesting quotes in it as well
It is amazing... *-*

Personal Comment :
There are two quotes I disagree a little
Depends on the point of view,
But I found them a little depressing.
Like one that says :

1. "We are born alone, we live alone,
We die alone...Only through our love and friendship
We create the illusion that we are not alone".

A : It is not an illusion.
When we are born we are with our family,
The first persons we see when we open our eyes
Are our parents :)

2. "People won't remember what you did
People won't remember what you said
But people will remember how you made them feel"

A : In the hearts of whoever trully loves you
You will not be forgotten.
You will be treasured.
And memories of you, cherished. (L)

Important Note : This song belongs to it's rightful owner
The video belongs to it's author.
I do not claim it as my own, I'm only sharing :)
So , here it is ...

A Message...

To whoever is considering or contemplating Suicide.
I personally never had anyone close to me or a loved one
Doing it and completing it.

Therefore, I had witnessed people talking with me
About their problems, about what bothered them
About even what they were contemplating
It is not about pretending the problem isn't there
It is about facing it, talk with the person
But more even, about understanding
Lending a hand.

You are worth it.
You are placed here for a reason
Never give up (L)

I was around youtube...and I checked some old messages
I bumped into one I sent nearly a year ago.
It was about a guy with a daugther and so
Who really wanted to die
I usually try to reach for people

And I thought "why not try to help?"
p.s: I do not know if the person is or not alive
Nor if he read the message.

Whoever comes across these posts
Such as this one... I want you to think
And read carefuly...

Note : Please , do not judge.
It is from 22/12/09 .
So it has over a year ago....

-- A year later, now that I read what I wrote
And reflected about it...
It gives you a other point of view on Life.
I did not recognized myself writting this
And all of a sudden seeing things this way
I could have been somehow right about it...
It is another point of view...
There it is, a message I wrote
I decided to share here --

Hi.. I don't know if
I'm bothering by sending and writing this ='$
Hello...I'm 17yrs old..
And once I was to kill myself
due to severe bullying in the past and scars left by that.

What if I did? We wouldn't be talking,
I mean, I wouldn't be here messaging,
I would lose the new friends
I've made and that lend me a helping hand
and too the old ones that known me for a long time.
My parents would be devastated
and nothing would replace a daughter.
I would have lost moments in life that were treasured.
Think about it, please.

I would like to tell you to keep fighting
for your children, as they love you trully
And you as a father, know that better than anyone.
Nothing can replace the love of a child
and the love of parents.

Love and living are the best gifts someone can offer.
Better than any other thing in this world.
Don't give up, seek help and advicing.
Please, death is not a way.
And the pain you once had would go
to the hearts of the ones you love.

Have you thought of how would your children feel,
And your family and friends feel if you were gone?

And too I noticed the people from here , they are worried about you.
They care. I don't know you, but I care too and i'm not here to judge.
I just would like you to read this and read carefully this message
and some of the comments people left you here on Youtube.

Life is and can be hard, but it's not impossible to achieve goals
Sometimes vision gets blurry
and it's hard to cope with so many feelings
and emotions at the same time,
but there are other ways to cope with pain,
methods such as writting, drawing, painting,
Working somewhere, and creating stuff too.
And being rewarded by that.
Set goals, things you want and wish to do in your life.

As someone once said
"Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem"
I mean, there is no turning back if you do so =,(

If you ever need to talk, anything
You can message me here.

Best wishes for you,
x Silvy

Inspiring song...

Personally my type of songs
(The most I listen to) are Rock
(Christian rock and so on)

But this one I decided to share
I was having a breakdown (also known as relapse)
And a dear friend of mine has sent me
The particular name of a song by a band called
Mercy Me.

It is not on my "usual music genre" at all
But I heard it and it does have a message
I ask here to take your time and listen to it
There it is the song...

It says it all...
<33 You're beautiful :)
Take care .

Updates .

My personal journey in order
To find a stable, decent job is still going.
Hope this gets solved soon.
Plus I've been now and then around my journal
(It is online too) and there I believe
I can write most of my thoughts there
The good and bad ones.
Nearly every step of my life.

I only do not write it out in here because...
It is not that the purpose of this/my blog
In this case, Life blog.
Plus I've been stressed and busy :3

Still, I am aware that there haven't been
Much updates on this. I did not forgot this
And (yet) I have no thoughts of erasing this blog
As I know and still somewhat believe
That the blog can somehow, somewhere reach someone
Someone CAN read this.

If I save one person or make someone happier
Then my work is done.
The point of the blog has came across.

Broken Heart

For every person, boy and girl who suffers about love.
Love isn't a game, nor a joke.
It should be taken seriously as hearts go hurt...

There is no magic potion to cure broken hearts,
I know it's hard, very hard to the point it can take over
Or mess up with people's lives.

Now I shall write from my point of view,
From...a girl's point of view.
I don't know if somebody can get disturbed or annoyed
With what I'm writting. I'm really releasing much
Of what I've been in this short life...
So, please, respect it. I hope this can help, too

I've been through that, I can relate to that...
Because i've been in such situations...
And I know not all people are assholes or bitches.
But some just are... >.<

My example?
I've been with a person 11 months...a lot of stuff happened,...
From lots of argues and fights, to loving moments,
To two rings in my fingers, and proposal.
Promises and all that pretty stuff...
I'll set the datas here :
02/06/2008 - 11/05/2009

Yes...we broke up.
In fact he was the one to do so.
The day he did such thing was three days before my birthday
How..."cool" is that? (NOT!)

I still remember as once
He was taking me to my grandparents home.
That was usual about him. A friday, lunch time...

He told me that day if something happened
That he hoped
"I would find someone else
To make me happier that he once did
To there for me more than he once did" ...

I guess that is what everyone tells.
I just answered to him
"Why are you telling me that?
You know I don't want anybody else,
And that you make me happy."

I started to slowly (or not) breaking down in front of him
I just started hugging him.
His expression was still serious and...
He hugged me back. I was home...

Saturday and Sunday...
I had more breakdowns during those days...
In the 8th of May he dropped the news
That he was going away to another school...
I should have known...
(I shall leave more in another post)

Point one. Me and him weren't perfect.
That is something that the person who is broken
Should see. In this case, me...

The fact is that...
At first thinking about that person hurts a lot
But with time, things slowly start to fade.
In the first weeks, I began to isolate myself
Crying, in my room. Or sleeping more than usual
I thought that that would be helpful.
But it's wrong...

In this times, the best thing is to go out with friends.
Drop the memories if they're harmful for you
Avoid the loving songs that turned out to be songs with sorrow
The best is too, to change the way you see things

It wasn't my blame - as a relationship isn't made by only one person.
To build something - 2 persons are needed.
Boy and Girl or in other cases, you know...
But in my case. He ended. He told me...

3 years in another school
I told him I would God knows how I would wait
But he didn't wanted that. So he went on with his life.
This was a test... And I wasted 11 months of my life
With someone who just left me. (I'm being ironic)
I hated him at first...it pained me lots...
But then, hate was good for a recovery
And not seeing him as well, it helped.
And meeting people too.

I just thought to myself how he'll regret of
Leaving me behind.
I mean, I never lied to him
Never cheated.
And I was the girl he was more time with
And the one who supported him to go to class and all
Otherwise, he wouldn't make it through school
(He was the guy with a girl in one week or so...)
And he never said much, not even a thank you.

With this I realized how I sacrificed myself and time
For someone who didn't appreciated much
Much of the times he said he would go out and me
Then said that he couldn't because of this or that...
I know it's awful to think like this.

But it goes more or less like this...
Hating -> Thinking -> Moving On
-> Learning to Forgive -> LIVING -> Loving.

Yep. I forgave and forgive him...but it takes time.
I don't know if me
And him would ever be friends...
I think not. He never spoke to me since.
He followed his path, I just can't force anyone to be with me
So...I let him go. And followed my own path.

It takes wisdom for one to be alone.
And during the time you're alone.
Don't be depressed.

Sugestions :
* Listening to music
* Going to the movies with friends
* Doing something you like
* Or any project you were planning on doing before
(I carried on with my book project)
* Partying
p.s.: With limits,
Trying not to follow addictive or harmful stuff/paths.

You can still enjoy life while you're alone.
You don't need a boy or girl to be fully happy.
I cried, and more stuff.
But there was nothing wrong with me.
It was the choice that he made.

I couldn't let him be with me
If he wanted to build his own future.
Or even if he goes search for his own path to be happy
If so, I'll search for mine. =]
And succeed. No negative thoughts.

* This was dedicated for a person
Whose name I shall not reveal here.
Plus it has lots of time already
Take care *
