Over the past couple of months, there has been a few changes in both my personal life and work life. I recently began a full time job in a student accomodation office, in which I’ve worked in for the past five summers. When I get home from work I’m so tired I end up falling asleep around 9pm and waking up again in the morning when my alarm goes off. At the weekends, I try to spend as much time as possible with my boyfriend, and due to this, my blog took a little bit of a back seat. I’ve never been one to feel like I have to apologise for not posting, as who would want to read something half arsed? It’s better to write when you really want to write. That way, you’re not writing a load of drivel no one cares about.
After realising I’d been neglecting amyjanealice, and missing the community and pride I felt after putting effort and passion into each post, I decided I needed to sort myself out and get back into the swing of things properly. Along with this, I want to have a good go at creating YouTube videos. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long while now, and although I have two videos up here already, I want to arrange a routine and really make a go of it. With the wages I’m earning over Summer, I want to invest in a camera that I can use for both filming and taking pictures for my blog, which is another thing I want to improve. I don’t want to use working full time as an excuse for my sporadic blogging, and so I need to take some of my own advice from my blogging organisation post and get a plan put together.
Last month I got my results from uni, and found out that I was 0.75 marks off a first. Of course this is a brilliant result and I’m so pleased with it, but that tiny gap is taunting me… Since finishing university for the summer, my mindset has definitely changed on quite a few things. I’m feeling a lot more confident within myself and my abilities, which a few months ago I wasn’t. There’s definitely no reason to dwell on things or waste time on people that make you unhappy, so I had a kind of ‘life clean’. I rearranged my room which always makes me feel better, decided who and what mattered to me and began living life to make me happy. That sounds cringey as, but I honestly feel better for it. Wear whatever you want, listen to whatever music you want, like whatever you want, as people will like you much better as yourself than whoever you may pretend to be.
Aaaand…. relax. This got a little deep and preachy didn’t it? Phew. I just felt like I needed a little update on the blog and am looking forward to living a more positive and carefree life. Happy happy happy!
