Good man. It describes a very specific case about a teenage girl so I don't know how helpful it'll be, but hopefully you'll get something out of it. I have listened to nearly all his podcasts since I discovered him after Christmas; I thought it all sounded a bit silly at first but it's proved fairly helpful.

Something I find really helpful is finding the right radio station. Getting that mix of music you can lose yourself in and the right mix of presenters can really help tide you over until things pass a bit. These days there’s radio iPlayer, BBC sounds and other internet radio goodies to choose from. For me it’s 6 Music, but maybe that’s an age thing!

It's been a funny time the last 6 weeks. I up and quit my last bar job over a pay dispute that never got resolved. I was fortunately not out of a job for long, two weeks at my current employer and it's amazing how enjoyable a hospitality position can be when the pay is above minimum, hours are consistent and management competent and supportive.

Uni has been putting me through the ringer recently as well. Work on my Honours is fun but i'm finding it really tough to motivate myself into a routine.

But there is some good news. I put in an offer and a 5 year plan for a rent-to-buy new build in Manchester and after 4 years of trying to get myself on the property ladder my offer was accepted. I move in in September.

So yeah. A very strange time of sometimes painfully drawn out progress but progress nonetheless.

Fair play. Took me till my 40s to own my own place, and that's a only a boat.

I've never owned my own place. Even now, I live in somebody else's shed.

The worst part is that I can't figure out whether this makes me a winner or a loser...

I think it depends on how comfy you feel in the shed.
