I was determined to achieve this dream, I even researched many courses online and contacted some people about this. I spoke to my local gym about work experience and courses. One staff told me about a certain company so I contacted the company about the courses.
I spoke to a nice lady via email about me joining but then it took ages to get more replies from her. I later on learnt she left the company and no one knew about me. I was pissed about that but carried on with the process of joining a course 'fitness instructor level 2'.
But then I went to Australia in October and wasn't sure if I could keep in contact via email so someone else did all of the organising for me. I later learnt that they couldn't get an interpreter for the date I wanted to start. I was disappointed until they suggested a different date as there were other course starting in November few weeks after coming home from Australia. I thought that was perfect so I could have time to get over jet lag.
But then I had bad news when I came home from Australia and thought that I wasn't up to the course. I nearly pulled out but then thought it was best to keep busy. I started buying few things such as folders and note pads for my course. Then suddenly at the last minute just before my course started I was let down because they emailed me saying they can't afford interpreters for my course. I was so gutted but angry because they let me down badly and at the last minute!
Then in December I decided to try again but with different companies. I contacted my local college about enrolling. It was all fine and I applied via email but then it took a while to hear from them.
I got someone else to contact the college, and eventually I heard from them but I was going to Thailand in January and the time was too tight as the course was starting in February. So I told the college that I was going travelling and might not be able to keep in contact via email. I didn't know there were many places that offered free wifi in Thailand!
Sadly due to personal reasons, I had to pull out of the course - a week before the course start. I'm gutted about not being on the course next week but that's life.
I'm thinking of the word 'Karma!!'
