The painful reality of writing an entry (ready to publish) to just have it accidentally wiped as you close the app… d’oh! You’d have thought I’d learnt to save things prior to closing them… (my life in high school was often made more stressful due to my lack of doing just that).
I do apologise for not having written any sooner! If it’s any hint from the entry title: my time has been consumed (sadly/no regrets whatsoever) by ITV’s reality television program “Love Island”. Well, that amongst eating/exercising/working/breathing…
To make up for it however, I have a couple of exciting things to share with you! As the weeks whizz by (like seriously where are they disappearing to??!!), I have been knuckling down and trying to set myself on a plan/path of success.
For a long time now I have been um’ing and ah’ing about just what it is I want to do in my life. They pin the whole “career/ultimate life decision” thing on you when you’re about 16 in school – to which, in all honesty, is such a difficult thing to weigh up at that age! I studied at uni for several years before calling it quits and moving to London. Arguably not the most logical decision (from a parent’s point of view) – but in hindsight it was the BEST choice I ever did make!
Now that I have grown old and wise enough (lol) to be able to determine what my strengths are – and where my interests lie, I have finally made a decision. I will be returning to study the beginning of next year! (Did someone say mature age student orrrrr)…(as if I didn’t feel old enough already). But hey, bring it on! I will be aiming high to pursue a career in a field which is something I have always loved; it just took me until now to ask myself “what am I actually doing?”. Unless I was Pam from the US Office (one of my all time fav shows!) I can’t quite put up with working FOH in offices anymore. Onwards and upwards!
ALSO *drum roll*: I will be returning to the U.K. on a month’s holiday in just a matter of weeks! Wooohooo. It has been quite a difficult one being separated from my best friends and my partner for [what will be] just over 3 months; but what doesn’t kill you honestly makes you stronger. It’s been a true testiment of… I guess my own capabilities? And although it seemed impossible in the beginning, I am pleased to admit it’s become much easier as days pass!
So, that’s essentially what’s on the cards in the not too distant future – I can’t wait to share with you what else may be on the horizon (there’s always something!) I also promise I won’t leave it so late to write next time (Love Island will be taking second priority, promise!)
