Hey everyone happy Friday as some of you may know if you follow me on Twitter over the past two weeks I have been attending a course. This course is another step towards me hopefully getting an apprenticeship in digital marketing. When deciding to sign up for the course I was choosing to put myself out there as it was something I had never done before.
The course itself was full on for two weeks I was there from 9am-5pm every day Monday-Friday. We did various things such as team building exercises, speed interviews, dragons den and CV work. This was just the base of the whole thing because the people who I spent it with made it one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.
There were around forty of us which makes us quite a big group. However I made sure that I spent time with everyone as I’m a person who likes to go from group to group and have a good old chat. Although there were different groups as you would get in any situation as a whole we were so close. The support that we gave to one and another was something I had never experienced to that extent before.
Each and every single person in the group is extremely talented and I feel so honored to have gotten to know them all on a personal level. I have learnt so much more about myself by listening to their stories and by seeing the things that they have created. Each night I have had so many things to tell my mum who has also said how incredible it has been for me.
I wanted to type something up so that I can remember how I am feeling at this exact moment in time. As well as that it allows the people who I shared the experience with a chance to remember what it was like also. I know for a fact that each and everyone of them will achieve many wonderful things in their lives as they are all extremely humble, creative and unique.
A little note about the people who hosted the course and taught us every single person really cared about us. You could see this in the way that they valued us as a group as well as an individual. Our teachers were some of the most inspirational people I have ever met and I will never forget some of the things they said to us.
On a more personal note I am extremely proud of myself as I have managed to battle the tube at rush hour for the past two weeks without having a panic attack. Although there was one moment when I thought that I was going to have one. The way I felt before and after each day really helped as I loved going. Usually when I am in a positive/happy mood I am less likely to have a panic attack.
I’m going to be ending on a bittersweet note as the course has now finished so I won’t be seeing everyone everyday anymore which is really sad. I feel like a huge part of me will be missing as I have become so used to having an extra forty family members for the past few weeks. However I am positive that everyone will get the job that they are looking for and if not they will be offered something better.
I’m really busy over the next few days or so but I am going to try and get up some blog posts and definitely a video on Sunday so keep and eye out for that. For now have a lovely weekend and I will catch up with you soon!
