Today's outcome......

 
 
Ok, I'm back.
 
Tonight wasn't as successful as I thought. I was attacked by a gang of youths and tied up in a chair with tape. HAHA..Ok,ok, I'm lying. That's the sentence that I THOUGHT I'd be typing out tonight, BUT it went great, even better than I imagined!!
 
I made good connections with a lot of them. They're loud, rude, rowdy, obnoxious, cheeky, offensive.....everything that teenagers should be...haha! (That was a joke Morgan..;-) xxx)
A big chunk of the night was spent feeding them, but even doing that, they started talking to me and welcoming me into the group. The staff said that they've NEVER been like that with a new member of staff. WOO HOO!! I wont go into everything that we talked about 'cos I can't, but there are some people there that I know I can really help.
 
I'm supposed to be going on a day out to 'Alton Towers' with them on Tuesday as the kids want me there. Again, I'm calling them kids, but they're actually teenagers! They told me how good it is to have someone my age there as they feel I can understand them better, which I think I do.
 
So I'm very VERY satisfied with tonight and I can already feel the rewards of this job. I'm back on Friday working with the down syndrome group. I hope I can bond with them aswell. Fingers crossed.
 
So now I'm an officialyouth worker and I will be getting sent to college and university, and they pay for all of it! How cool is that?! I'm so excited!!
 
Thanks for all of your comments. Trust me, they ALL helped today.
 
Love ya all! xxx

Steve, a paid for college education, that is great and a real perk worth a lot of dollars or pounds. Glad they participants accepted you so well.
I am sure this is a position where you will be able to make a worthwhile contribution and reap the rewards of doing it.
Again good luck, Bill

I'm absolutely NOT surprised that this went well!  As I say, mentoring is the answer in my book, and is so productive and helpful, perfect for you to involvve yourself with by sharing yourself with others who can relate and benefit from what you offer.  I'm VERY proud of you Steven, truly.  xoxo CATHY

OMG, well I know I missed the first entry about this but congratulations on this exciting new job! This is the perfect career for you, I know these kids (teenagers... now I'm being like you, lol) are gonna completely fall in love with you, and you're going to have such a positive impact on their lives! I'm so proud of you, Stevie.

And *ahum* mister, I don't see an update about Alton Towers. Get moving! lol
Oh and another thing: "They're loud, rude, rowdy, obnoxious, cheeky, offensive.....everything that teenagers should be...haha! (That was a joke Morgan..;-) xxx)" LOL I'll let that one slide... love you Stevie.
