I didn't really know what to call this post as it's just some things that have been on my mind lately. Nothing groundbreaking of course but just a peek into my little life at the moment!
* What a difference a year makes. This time last year I was really unhappy due to a crappy (in hindsight) relationship on top of the stress of job hunting and getting a lot of rejections. Now though I am the happiest I've been in a long long time- I've got the loveliest boyfriend ever, who came into my life rather unexpectedly but made it infinitely better. We've only been together for about 5 months but I feel like I've known him much longer and I feel so comfortable in his company.
*Now that I've got a job in a school 5 mins away from my boyfriends flat, I have practically moved myself in and have quickly cluttered up his place with girliness and general mess! I love having my own space again after moving back home after uni. Now that I'm being paid and can contribute, I'm thinking about having a massive sort out and moving more stuff in than a couple of holdalls. I'm a bit of a hoarder so this desperately needs doing. I'm going to have to be ruthless but hopefully it will be quite a cathartic experience! I'm looking forward to buying some storage (now that's a bit of a sad sentence) and other homeware bits and bobs together.
*I am longing for a holiday sooo much and lately me and Stu have been looking up cheap deals online. He has actually been getting very stressed out about it all, bless! It doesn't help that I can't take any term time leave so everything is more expensive. I just want some sunshine and a change of scenery. I'm not too picky on where we go, though Stu would beg to differ on that one..Anyone got any recommendations on where to find good deals?
*I've been at my new job for a while now and whilst I do enjoy it, I can't help but feel I'm going to wreck it for myself down to my lack of confidence and overall shyness. I don't think people realise how hard it is being shy sometimes and how much of a barrier it is. I'm trying to push myself but it's not easy when you feel like you regularly make an idiot of yourself! Don't suppose anyone else feels like this?
Anywho, this is what I've been thinking about of late and I hope you didn't find it too trivial and boring!
