    Sensory homework from OT.

    I get to listen to this on a daily basis, as part of my sensory indulgence. :)

    I remembered to brush the cat. I held one brush so they could rub their face while I used another brush to brush their back & I got a lot of hair out. It was very mutually satisfying.

    Job interview--they literally asked me when i can start but i chickened out and said i'll think about it lmao. It seems like i have to take on a lot of responsibility, i am a bit scared.

    I’ve given that response before now and still got the job when I called back the next day.
    What are they expecting you to take on?
    Is it a big step up from what you’ve done before?

    :) Congratulations, very well done indeed :)

    ^Thank you, it seems to be a very busy office, and one person has to take over 100 clients (not at first i assume though) and so.. Also it seems like you have to take a lot of initiative and finish the case all by yourself.
    I dont know what will happen, they said they will contact me in 2 weeks, maybe they will change their mind instead..

    ^ Yes, that does sound like a heavy workload (Although, I assume the cases would all be at different stages, and thus wouldn’t all require maximum focus simultaneously... ?)
    And, yeah, they could change their minds...

    I think how I’d break it down (assuming they ring you back and repeat the job offer) is:
    • a) you can turn it down, but you’ll never know whether it would have worked or not... and may regret the decision.
    • b) you can accept the position, you might succeed or fail at the job... if you succeed then that’s great, if you fail, well, that won’t be a great experience... but it will be one with learning potential.
    • c) having interviewed you, they think you're capable and worthy of the position.

    Hope that helps. :)

    ^ Yeah, i am really surprised they think i am competent, the college i graduated from is the best in my city maybe it is due to that. (but i was a very bad student)
    My cousin is being extra supportive, she has a friend who works there who might be able to help me, and she said she would help me too (she is also a lawyer) It gives me hope to see people believe in my potential, but i am not sure if i deserve that much.

    ^ lol: yeah, I’ve struggled with the “but surely it is not rational to regard me as deserving” line of thought for years. :confused:
    Still feel clueless on a regular basis, still think “really? surely I’m not worth that much?” when I get paid. :rolleyes:

    They probably will have looked at the college, and your grades... but I doubt they would have been decisive though, plenty of people have qualifications, and good grades: the interview process is to weigh them up and pick one person who shows the potential to build a career off the back of the college training.
    I suppose the thing is that one can’t see one’s own potential: not having the experience of a lifetime in the job to calibrate by...

    I received the dream decoder cards I online ordered at the post office today. Read about 1/3 of them and I’m pleased so far. I think they’ll get a lot of use.:)
