Hello, I know that when you are reading this it will no longer be the 12th, but as this is the day I am writing this, I have decided to keep the date the same!
First of all, I know this is the first update in a long time. In fact I know I haven’t posted much at all in a significant period of time. Apologies for not doing so, but I had chosen to take a break from blogging back when I had exams. And as you can guess, the break has been longer than anticipated (yeah, state the obvious). Yet as I went into the holidays I found that I was very busy working full time, seeing friends, while I needed to take time for myself as well.
I will continue to do all these, but I feel ready to dedicate more time to blogging again because I love doing it, and there’s an amazing blogging community.
So far the holidays have gone pretty well, and I know I have already mentioned what I have been doing, but it has been lovely to be able to catch up with friends and have more freedom (at least for the time being). Meanwhile as I write this, I am on the way back from Swansea, whereby the reason for visiting was to see the university, but we also explored the city and the surrounding area while we were there. The university seemed really good and I especially liked how it seems to be more focused on career prospects, extra curricular opportunities rather than plainly grades! Also the city is nicer than I had expected and south Wales is just beautiful! We went to go see the waterfalls, went to a few different beaches (along the Gower if this means anything to anyone), and I went swimming in the sea a few times. I really want to be able to travel more over summer as well.
Concerning work, I am actually starting a new job on Wednesday. And while I’m nervous, I’m actually looking forward to it quite a bit because a) is much more local so I don’t have to wake up as early, b) better pay and c) I hope it will be more varied. But the main reason for changing is basically because there was someone at my old work, in a position of authority, who was a dic*head, if I want to use a polite and rather modest word. And you could say he was, well, dirty
Also I’m going to have an attempt at journaling (you know the thing where your supposed to write something along the lines of a “to do list”, a “gratitude” list, and whatever else you may want to include. I have just written a to do list for each day, a practice of good habits (like drinking 2L water a day, you get the guise), and a gratitude list. And while I don’t want to say that it not likely that I will stick at it for long because then it is almost manifesting that this will be the case, I know that often I’m not good at sticking at things for very long, so if I am still journaling by say this time next month, then I will let you know how it is getting on. Otherwise, I probably won’t mention it! I have also been trying to read more since the beginning of the holidays, and to be fair it is going OK. Oh, and I watched the final yesterday evening, and I mean why penalties? Although saying it, I wasn’t expecting England to win, and they did really well to get to the final.
Thankyou for reading, and take care:-)
