Figuring Things Out

Hello everyone, hope you're well! 

First things first, I just wanted to apologise for not blogging much at all this month. I'm not really sure what's the matter with me at the moment, but I've not been feeling the whole blogging scene as of late. I haven't even been getting involved in the Twitter chats as much, if at all, either - who am I? Anyway, I wanted to let you guys know that I'm really frustrated that I've not been blogging recently. It sucks when you feel as if you've run out of ideas, and I'm not one of those who will do a job half-arsed and be happy with it. So the same goes with producing a blog post. I promise I'll get out of this funk soon. Sometimes it's just nice to take some time away from everything tech-related and just be.

A few other things have happened this month too which have kept blogging on the back burner. I've been job hunting properly for a little bit over a month now and I'm already driving myself crazy. I applied for my dream job which didn't (for once) require any experience. I thought I was well in, that I came across as enthusiastic and qualified, and it's basically been a huge crash down to earth once I realised I wasn't even going to get an interview, let alone the possibility of the job. It's such a disappointment when you think you'll be really great at a job and you don't even get a call back. Still, I guess I'll keep trying, even if it means applying for jobs which are only vaguely related to what I want to do! This of course means that I'm still at my current part-time job. I finished nights last week and had my first day shift on Monday. It felt so weird to be going into work at a time when I would've just been leaving it during the summer. Needless to say I was knackered come 5pm!

I was actually desperate to have that Monday off, not because I knew I would be so tired, but because my brother and his girlfriend were moving into their new house that day and I really wanted to help out. I sent them a batch of hazelnut chocolate brownies in my place, not that they would be much help lifting furniture around the house! I heard they were very well received though so that always makes me happy. I'm excited to visit them soon and crash there after their housewarming party!

I've also been doing other adult things (mostly car-related, hello tax and MOT) and I literally have no money to my name. It's so hard to not have much money, isn't it? I'm just glad my parents aren't expecting me to move out any time soon. I've put myself on a spending ban so wish me luck with that one! Oh, and I finally went to the Doctor's yesterday after putting it off for ages. I hate going, even if it's just for a repeat prescription. God, that place just makes me so anxious. I got the shock of my life when I realised that I've put on nearly two stone since I last got weighed there a year ago. So mortifying. I blame all that baking! I'll be making a conscious effort to shift the pounds by eating smaller meals, not snacking in the evenings, and doing the 30 Day Shred again. Hopefully, I can lose it within the next six months if I get into a routine!

I know that next month promises to be much better, what with the grad ball and my graduation finally rearing its head - I'm seriously so excited for that entire weekend! Again, I'm sorry that I've not been blogging much. I do miss it - a lot in fact - and I hope you'll stick around and bear with me in the meantime!

  2. Life has a funny habit of always getting in the way but you shouldn't apologise for that! Just take all the time that you need away from the often dark world of the internet and good luck with the job hunt xx

    1. It sucks though! I feel like I need an escape like blogging but then I have no ideas and ugh - just a vicious cycle. Thanks Charlotte! Xx

  3. I find that a lot of people our age have these same issues with money. We're on the brink of when we assumed we'd move out on our own, but it's not really close to happening and it feels weird.

    1. I hope I don't feel lost for long! I really want to get on with earning some proper money and move out etc. Job hunting is the biggest bane of my life right now. Thanks for the advice! Xx

  5. There's no harm in taking a break - like you say, what's the point in doing half-hearted posts? Blogging is much more fun when you're enthusiastic about it. Good luck with your spending ban, and I hope you enjoy your graduation! xx

  6. Don't apologise dearie! We can't expect to be really motivated 100% of the time. We all hit that brick wall. I've been blogging just over 6 months and I've hit it twice already! Just blog when you feel inspired x

  7. It seems life gets in the way no matter how hard you try, sometimes! It will come back to you, you just need to give it (and yourself) a little bit of time.
    Hopefully with graduation and the graduation ball next month you'll be able to blog a little bit about that, I'm sure most of us would love to hear about it!

  8. Don't worry at all about not blogging for a while, life gets in the way of things sometimes you don't want to force blogging. Glad you're well and good luck for your job hunt, everything happens for a reason and you'll get the perfect job for you!
