Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

  • Apprenticeships

    Hi. I'm just finishing school and not sure what I want to do in the future. I think apprenticeships might be the way forward but was wondering if anyone had any experience of this?

    Hello Pinkbow,

    Goodluck
    From Jessica
    Weíve introduced a new way to find and apply for an apprenticeship in England.
    Just someone changing to who they really are. Jessica, now Jacob, been a big step but im sure it will be an exciting journey.

      Hey, when I left school I went to college for 2 years and hated every minute of it! I was working 2 part time jobs just so I could afford to get to and from college. Finally made the decision to start an apprenticeship. I did mine at a truck dealership and went to college in Bristol for 2 weeks every 8 weeks, and itís the best decision I ever made. Iím now a fully qualified hgv mechanic, and although itís tough sometimes I look back at what Iv achieved and that makes me feel amazing. An apprenticeship is the best was to go as a school leaver! Earn money whilst learning! You wonít regret it!!

        Hiya!

        I haven't had any personal experiences with apprenticeships but I know many people at my College who are really enjoying it.
        the mix have made an article on apprenticeships that you might find helpful: http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-st...hips-9053.html

        Do some research and figure what kind you would like to do and who offers them x

        All the best
