Because sometimes life happens.

So, I’ve just started the 30 days to self improvement challenge. Day one was going over something that I was proud of, so I showed my graduation. Today is the day where I am meant to start a journal. HOWEVER, I already have this blog, so I figure that instead of starting a journal, I’m just going to commit to writing here a little more often.

Sometimes, it’s good to put pen to paper (or just type on the laptop) to get out of my own head. It’s amazing how therapeutic it is really. I know my writing style isn’t perfect or polished, but I do actually really enjoy spending a little bit of time on the blog. The thing is though, I don’t actually know what you all want to know!

I know the last few posts have been quite down, as I’ve tried to work through areas of my anxiety, but actually I do lead a really happy life. I have the most wonderful HUSBAND, a wonderful group of friends, a job I love and a future I can’t wait to start planning properly. So, let me tell you about something wonderful in my life.

Today, I found out that I’m potentially being put on a course that will help further my career a tiny bit! It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I first qualified and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m also hopefully going to be working on a new working group soon that will really help the people I  work with. I know it’s not a lot, but it’s something to focus on. I love studying further and getting a little ahead. I think I might actually be addicted to University.

No, I don’t think. I KNOW. I spent 3 years at uni, took a 6 month break and went back. I’ve been out of uni for 9 months and I’m already looking at going back! Maybe I just don’t want to grow up.

So there you go, something a little less dreary, and a little (vague) insight into my life!

I’m going to try and start blogging here around 3 times per week.

Speak to you soon, lovelies.

First day nerves.

First day back at uni. Eek!

Today is my first day back at university and, despite only leaving 7 months ago, I’m so nervous!

It’s a big commitment and step going back to uni to further your career. To go from independent to suddenly being helped and observed again, but I’m ready for it. I think I am anyway.

I’ve decided I’m just going to embrace the new beginning and make the most of every second.

Now all I need to do is remember that I still need to strike a work/life balance. How do I do that again?

The Blogging from A-Z Challenge!

Yesterday’s letter was D. A thought/feeling beginning with D. I have no idea. So I’ll go with one I’m feeling a lot at the moment.

Determination.

I finished University in February. Am I done? No. I am determined to start my Masters Degree either this September or next January. And do you know what? Nothing and no-one is going to stop me. I’m going to work my bum off to get there and make everyone I love proud of me in the process.

Alongside this though, I have other bits and pieces of my life that I’m determined to make happen – a flat, getting married and having children (ah, the domestic life) – and nothing is going to stand in my way of those either. I will get there, alongside my partner in crime.

It’s a scary thing to decide to become determined to achieve something, but I’m in that mode. And I can’t wait!
