Life lately

Hi everyone! So recently I have been lacking a bit on the blogging front so I thought I would do a bit of a life update. I feel like I have been quite lacking on the blog front (again) although I am not sure why. I have tonnes of ideas and have several posts drafted but have yet to publish any of them. I just feel like as much as I love blogging I’ve lost a bit of enthusiasm for it.

I also graduated from university nearly two months ago now. However, things haven’t really gone to plan. I applied for a masters for this September but it was full so my place got deferred for next years intake. As a result of this, I am currently looking for a job and so far not having a lot of luck. Job searching is painstaking and I hate having no money. The hardest part at the moment is that the job I recently interviewed for was one I really wanted and was excited about and I had so many plans so not getting it was really tough. The toughest part of being unemployed is the financial side of it because obviously you won’t be getting much money if any. However, although I am struggling without a job I actually want to try and make the most of being unemployed.

  • Blog more – So I recently got a new laptop which is not only handy for job searching and applications, but also for blogging. It is rare that I use my laptop for blogging but this was mainly because it was so bulky and slow. However, my new laptop is an 11″ one so is smaller and more lightweight so will be easier to use for blogging. Also, because I will have a bit more time on my hands and will be home alone two days a week I will be able to blog more, I just need to start planning my content better.
  • Read more blogs – I love reading other peoples’ blogs but just don’t spend enough time doing it. Not only is it nice to support other bloggers by reading their content but it also inspires my own content. I have created a folder on my phone of shortcuts to some of my favourite bloggers but I also love discovering new bloggers so if you have any favourites please feel free to share their links with me. (Also, side note – I am considering creating my own RT twitter account. Please let me know what you think in the comments)
  • Listen to more podcasts – I used to love podcasts but didn’t really have the time to listen to them. I have discovered a couple of new podcasts that I want to start listening to and because I have a few meetings to attend next week I can listen to them on the way there and back.

Well, that is all I have to say really on my current situation. Is there anything particularly good or bad going on in your life right now? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks for reading!

    I remember when I finished up at Uni and the overwhelmingly daunting task of finding a job. My situation was a little bit different because I was completely finished with studying and thought getting a job would be a walk in the park. It wasn’t. It sounds like you have the right kind of attitude though – make the most of the time you’ve got, use it in a positive way and make it work in your favor 🙂 Good luck with your goals 🙂

    It’s amazing how a new laptop can make you want to blog more. I recently got a new one and have felt far more productive. My old one was so slow I dreaded having to update!
