Thank you to everybody who wished me a happy birthday with all of your lovely messages :aww: :heart:
  • Mood: Anguish
I live in Australia, as some of you might know, my particular state is South Australia. Which also happens to be the state with the highest unemployment rates in the country. There are at least 68,000 unemployed South Australians, and I am, unfortunately, one of them.

I am really anxious about my career future. I've finished high school, but I have no idea what I want to do in my life. Our terrible Liberal government has made it so difficult for young people to get jobs, they've made earning qualifications unachievable. Most university or college courses are around $5000 to $10,000 or even more. To make matters worse,  most of these don't guarantee you a job, so all of the years (and money) you've spent studying can be all for nothing, And because most people like myself can't afford these ridiculously expensive courses, this could mean a catastrophic shortage of even more jobs in the future. Without qualifications or work experience, employees here don't want anything to do with you, and your resume goes straight in the bin. Its all just a vicious cycle: need a job > need qualifications > need money to get qualifications > need job for money, and so on.

The only way I've been earning some money for myself is through my commissions. Even though I think many of you aren't interested in the commissions I upload, (based on the differences in favourites and comments compared to my usual pictures) I love doing them, and I think my prices are fair and affordable, but sadly I'm just not getting enough.

I don't mean for this journal to sound like I'm begging for money, I just believe that our state's situation needs more awareness. Also this issue has been worrying me for quite some time now, so i thought it's just best to write everything down to clear out my head.
