Where I'm at right now

October 2018| Where I’m at right now

So I know we’re in the middle of blogtober, but I feel like doing a life update. I feel like some things have happened that I’d like to talk about, plus blogtober is what you make it so here we go!

So two months ago I posted a blog post which just talked about where I was in life, you can read it here, I’ll be referencing it a lot.

Getting a job

So in that post I talked about how I had been struggling to get a job so I decided to volunteer in a charity shop to gain some experience in retail. Well, since then I got a job at a fish and chip shop, quit said job a month later cos the hours were ridiculous and then got a second job that pays way more and I can pick my hours! I can’t say where I’m working because that would give away where I live, but I had my first shift this past weekend and it was really chill. So I’m happy with that.

Driving

I told you guys how I had postponed my test because I wasn’t ready, well my test is this month and I’m not feeling too awful about it if I’m being honest. For the most part I’m driving fine, I just need to tweak things here and there but it’s nothing major. I’m honestly so excited to get this test over and done with, and hopefully passing it too!

School

Of course, school has started up again for me. We’re one month in, and while the school work itself is fine I’m not loving school. Almost everyone I went to school with is now at uni, and I’m left with barely a handful of people who are also staying an extra year but I don’t often get to see the ones who aren’t in my class. I’m not ashamed of staying an extra year but that doesn’t mean I’m enjoying it. It feels like I shouldn’t be there anymore, and with all the changes and new people, it doesn’t feel like it’s the same school I’ve been going to for the past 7 years. But, Christmas is around the corner and we all know the days will somehow disappear once I’m over that hill.

Blogging!

So I moved over to my new blog! And honestly, I feel so at peace with blogging now. There’s no internal pressure, or stress. I’m just blogging because it’s fun again!

Journaling

This is a new topic, so I’ve started getting really into journaling recently. I’ve got some actual ‘supplies’ now, and I have plans to get more! I’m really having a lot of fun with it and I’ll be writing more posts about it soon. I’m not sure how much of my actual journal pages I will share, the ones I’m more proud of will more than likely end up on my instagram so go give that follow. There’s a little peek into my feed over there (if you’re on a computer) >

That is also something else I’ve been having a lot of fun with, the same could not be said for the instagram I used to have.

Anyways, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little update. I think “where I’m at right now” is what I’m going to call these posts. I quite liked writing it so I’ll probably be back with more whenever my life gets interesting again.

Until next time 🍁

Where I'm at right now

Job prospects, driving and blogging for fun|Where I’m at right now

I felt like writing a blog post but I couldn’t think of an “idea” so I thought I’d just talk about how my life is going at the mo.

After spending almost two years trying to get a job, I decided that it would be a good idea to try and get some retail experience in a charity shop. I wasn’t getting jobs because I was a total noob with very little relevant work experience. I kinda wish I did charity work sooner but ah well. Saying that I did try when I was 14 but the places I went to were full or they wanted me to be 16. So I’m starting at a local charity shop today, I went in to speak to the assistant manager yesterday and she was so nice so I feel way less nervous about going in! It’s a PDSA charity shop & I love animals so it all works out perfectly.

In other news I’ve had to postpone my driving test again because my instructor doesn’t think I’m quite ready yet. I’m kinda sad but also really relieved too because I don’t think I’m quite ready yet tbh. I don’t see the point in rushing into it as that’s going to be a waste of money and I might as well wait so that I do my test when I’m ready and feel as though I can actually pass.

I’ve got one week left of school and I cannot wait for it to be over because I’m so tired of it. I’m going to Scotland during the holidays so I’m hoping to write some posts about that, hopefully I’ll manage to write a couple and not just one because I have a lot of ideas. I’ve also made my tattoo consultation appointment so hopefully if that all goes well I’ll be getting a tattoo within the next few weeks as well which is quite exciting!

Blog wise, I’ve decided that I won’t be renewing my blog hosting in November and I’ll be reverting back to being a WordPress.com blog. I was quite on the fence about this decision until recently, I’m now excited about going back to being a non self hosted blog! I’ll feel much much happier while blogging and I’ve finally decided that my blog is 100% just for fun. No worries about growing my following or trying to make money from it all. If it happens by itself a few years down the line then great! But it’s no longer a priority. For this reason I also went ahead and deleted my blog ig, I made it because I thought that’s what bloggers had to do but not anymore!

I think those are the most interesting things that are happening at the moment so there we go.
