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.


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!


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.


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!


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 🍁
