As you can see, I joined this forum back in 2005 when I was considering joining regulars, I had requested an application pack filled it out but had never bitten the bullet in getting it sent! I know, I know, what's that about? Well at the time there was a part of me that wanted to be part of something that I have always respected but I personally I didn't feel ready to take on something so potentially life changing, my confidence was knocked for 6 and I felt had I sent the application I wouldn't given to give 100% of myself.
So off I went, I changed my current job, met some nice people, got involved in charity fundrasing, started regularly running with a running club and went traveling for a little while.
The one thing I felt I let myself down on was not going to University, I had a place at Dundee to Study Law but sometime things happen in life where you have to change your plans, so I never went this was back in 2002, fast forward to 2006 when i decided to make the decision to change my career and course in life, I contacted the Open University and applyed for the Criminology and Psychological Studies Degree, so far so good! I'm currently studying on a part time basis so far so good, it's challenging, interesting and I love the people that I have met, I feel like a wee swot!
But something was still missing, I felt suffocated by my current job and I felt I wasn't getting the best out of my personality,I work in a very small office (I prefer to work with lots of people), I work at a desk all day (I prefer to be all over the place never knowing what's going to happen) Everyday is pretty much predictable (I like to do things pretty off the cuff). I basically like a bit of a challange and like to be kept interested.
Hang on a minute! Did I not want to join the police? Yes indeed! I do have a huge interest in law and order, and i felt what better than to join specials, I have an interest, I have the time, I want to do something worthy and character building.
So once again I requested an application form and this time I was hell bent on getting it sent in!
I'll see this application through this time!
