So I haven’t blogged in a while, I lost the blogging bug but I’ve got it back and I realllyyyy want to start this up again!
What’s been happening with my life? Well I’m now legally an adult who isn’t in any form of education and might be travelling America alone in 6 months, so life has taken a weird but exciting turn!
I finished school in June and decided uni isn’t for me this year (and maybe for the next few years too!) but I didn’t want to do nothing with my year or two off!
I became full time at House of Fraser (where I’ve worked part time for two years) and became a brand specialist which is super exciting! I wanted to get some money to start as let’s be real, you can’t do anything without money nowadays! haha! I’m kind of enjoying working full time and it has made me realise how unhappy I was at school (that’s a story for a whole other post) but working in retail 5 days a week has also been a major reality check. It’s made me realise that I want to do something with my life, I don’t want to be stuck in a shitty retail job until I’m 72 (nothing against people that do that, but it’s just not for me!) and I need to think about the future.
So, I’ve tootled along and decided I’m going to leave HoF in May and hopefully do Camp America! I’ve started my application and it’s scary but so exciting too! I’ve visited America a few times but I’ve never fully experienced the culture and I’d love to so it sounds ideal! It is also a hella good way to travel America without being in a stupid amount of debt!
Although I’ve only been on my gap year a few months I’ve already began to rethink what I want to do as a career. As some of you may know acting is my passion and ideally that is what I want to do with my life but realistically, am I going to have a happy, easy going life doing that? Probs not. The acting world is so tough and competitive so looking at other career paths isn’t me being pesemistic but just realistic. I have two other options: youth work and media makeup. Two very different things but two things I really love. I do a shit tonne of volunteering for a youth work charity and I genuinely LOVEEE it and so doing it as a job would seem like more of a hobby that I’d get paid for! Similarly, makeup is a massive passion of mine! You can probably tell that from my blog! I am always doing my friends and families makeup and so again it would seem like a hobby rather than a job!
So, I guess Ive got a lot of thinking to do but for now, I’m just enjoying life 🙂 I’m taking each day as it comes and I’m trying to not let anything set me back.
Hopefully I will keep this blogging going! Thanks for reading!
