Not that anybody cares, but I want to update this thread (sorry for the bump
So yea, a few points to list of things that have and haven't improved:
I didn't break the no contact with my ex. She sent a few Snapchats to me, but they were non-personal ones, not sure if tests or not, but I ignored. I eventually made a new Snapchat. The oneitis is getting easier, I have a side girl at the moment, but I do want to get more when I can be bothered.
I've been looking into college courses. I'm re-doing my Maths & English (I'm good at both, but I wasn't the most mature kid in school, and failed everything due to showing off and ditching) ...I'll also be doing another course, at the same time. Either a level 2 AAT (accountancy) or a level 2 teaching assistant course. I'll more than likely pursue the AAT, which will enable me to become a trainee accountant while studying the level 3. Once I get the level 3, I can become an assistant accountant, while studying for level 4. Level 4 will enable me to become an accountant. The teaching assistant course starts in Jan, AAT starts in Feb. I have a voicemail asking me to phone tomorrow to talk about going for a Maths & English assessment.
I'm not sure if they're the same in the US, but in the UK, it goes like this...
Level 2 = A-C GCSE
Level 3 = A Level
Level 4 = Degree
I'm on Job Seekers Allowance, which I'm not proud of. I had a little argument with them today, because they were treating me like the typical benefit scrounger, which I am not. They were literally laughing at me, threatening me, and told me that my money will be stopped for 16 weeks because I went out of town for 2 days (friends Grandad died and I went to the funeral and stayed in a hotel, 60 miles away) - they said I'm not allowed to leave town without giving them notice and filling in a holiday form.
In the meantime I'm looking for other ways of making money, and I'm seriously considering buying on Amazon and selling on eBay, I've tried listing 2 items and they never sold, but I think that was down to error on my part. Part time retail work would probably be a good thing, but its hard to get, very hard.
I finished the books I was reading (I read Corey Wayne: How To Be A 3% Man 6 times, he suggests 15 but it got boring and I needed a break, lol) ...I also read How To Win Friends & Influence People and How To Stop Worrying & Start Living, by Dale Carnegie. At the moment I'm reading Psycho Cybernetics and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - both boring books, with some interesting points.
I still spend most of my time bored and playing video games, but I am trying to take steps in the right direction.
Thanks for all the advice on the thread, it really helped me kick a lot of the self-pity.
