LIFE // Brain Dump

Have you ever just needed to have a good old writing session to get some things of your chest? That's what this will be: for want of a better phrase, a 'brain dump'. Or I guess it could be seen as a little catch up for those interested in the girl behind the blog.


I've spoken about this numerous times on my blog (and if you follow me on Twitter you're probably sick of seeing my mini rants) but my brain is a bit confused with life at the moment. I'm lucky in that I've got a job and I'm living at my parents house for virtually nothing but now, after a year from moving away from university, I just feel a bit lost with life. I guess everyone feels this way at some point.

I've almost been at my current job for a year now. I hate relying on people so it was one of my priorities to get a job as soon as possible, meaning I ended up working at Lush as a sales assistant. I love my job and the people I work with are my little crazy family but  I know deep down I won't be at this job forever. So my options are try and find some different roles within the company (meaning I'd possibly have to move to London or Poole) or just leaving the company. Both options are terrifying. I suppose I'm putting off looking for anything because I get really anxious with pressure. I've set myself a dead line though: Once I've passed my driving test I'm going to think long and hard about what the hell I'm doing next career wise.

I've actually been toying with the idea of becoming a midwife for a while. I think it would be a rewarding job that I could throw myself in to by caring for women during pregnancy. I'm hoping to get some work experience soon to see if it's a career I'd love. This option is scary too because it would mean going back to uni but this time I'd have very limited funding, so I need to be a million percent sure it's what I want before I embark on that journey. Gulp.

I really want to move out of my parents house but finding it pretty difficult at the moment. I just can't afford anything at the moment and it's driving me mad. I do get on with my parents but I miss my own space and I feel guilty cluttering their house with my belongings. They've got used to not having me for three years now I'm back with extra furniture haha! I know in time I'll be able to move out so I'm just going to have to stay patient until then.

Sorry this blog post was probably pretty boring but I needed a bit of a vent so, if you've managed to keep reading right up until the end, thank you for letting me chat with you! If you have any advice or words of wisdom, be sure to leave them in the comments for me :)

  1. I found it really difficult transitioning from High School to College, because let's face it... not everyone know's what they want to do at 17 years of age. However... I went to College following in the footsteps of my Mum, whom I now work as a Care Assistant alongside :) for me, it's a job that's been so fulfilling and it's built my confidence massively!

    I think you should make the most of your education whilst you can, as my dad says "make the most of your youth, and your education" - even if you suck at it sometimes haha x

    1. I agree. I have been to university already and have a degree but the career I'd like is impossible to do without the relevant degree, which means going back to being a student. I guess it would be better in the long run and, as you say, education is never a waste of time! xxx

  2. I totally understand exactly where your coming from with your post. And I love that you posted it online, I always love a good writing session to get things off my chest but I haven't click publish on those posts in months now.
    These feelings are what (I think) every university graduate feel. I sure know I'm feeling the same way. I finish my degree this time last year and got myself a part time job & now I'm working two part time jobs. While it's great for now and I'm having so much with them both, I worry when I'll get out of that bubble of move onto a graduate job. And although I never lived away from home for uni, I'd love to move out soon as I'm beginning to feel part of my parents furniture haha.

    Welcome to the lives of being in our 20s I guess haha. But I do hope you feel better about everything soon :)
