Well it is rather evident that I have not blogged in a very long time, I’m literally sitting in my pyjamas and my university hoody, looking like death whilst having Sunday blues. I must be very deluded to think that just because I am wearing my university hoody it will magically transport me back to the student life and I will not have to wake up for that 6am alarm clock tomorrow. Well, it’s worth a try!
Since I’ve started this working life I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about weekends off and lie-in’s! It’s like Christmas has definitely come early even when a lie-in consists of getting up at 7.00am sometimes even 7.30am! I definitely am living the lavish lifestyle! I couldn’t wait to work and start having an income, I even think there was a moment where I was sick and tired of being a student and actually WANTED to work. That’s right ‘WANTED’ to work, how I suddenly regret those words. I miss being a student and it hasn’t even been 3 months. I left uni this year, I’ve graduated this year and I already want to go back!
Everything costs now! There is no free money from student finance! I had to earn those wages that come in to my account, I’m working for that holiday pay and hours off work. I feel like my dad’s words resonate through my mind on a daily basis “There’s no such thing as free in this world.” and he’s right! Everything costs! The prices of simple things like Freddo’s, how is that even possible?! Freddo really did have to grow up and get a mortgage it’s the only excuse for charging an extortionate 50p for something that probably cost 10p to make! Food is my forte, food is important, food is life and food is basically where my wages are going. It’s actually quite humorous how I spend money, I will not even look twice or care for spending £20 on food and extra wings yet when I see a jumper for £20 I feel like I really have to question my lifestyle choices and weigh out the pro’s and con’s of whether I should pay this extortionate amount for a jumper. It’ll go on sale eventually anyway so why pay so much now!
Now that I am growing up and becoming more responsible I feel like there is so much I want to accomplish. There is so much I want to achieve in the next 5 years. I plan a lot, to be honest I plan a little too much, sometimes it can be a bad thing but sometimes it’s actually a good thing! I always feel frustrated that I never have enough time to achieve my aspirations, I have everything written down but I never have the time. See this is where the Pep Talk comes in. I may tell myself that I don’t have time but that’s strictly true, all of this frustration is self-inflicted therefore it deserves no sympathy. I have the same 24 hours everybody else has and I know there are plenty of people out there accomplishing amazing things and reaching goals they thought they couldn’t. Motivation is difficult to acquire and that’s where faith and self-belief comes in.
Three years ago I thought I’d never get in to uni, yet here I am Class of 2015, graduated, working and on the road to accomplish something bigger and better. Everything requires willpower and attitude changes and although now I’m still sitting here partly frustrated feeling that I cannot get anything done. The difference is I’ve still got my plan, which means I’ve got some sort of guidance and now all I need is the positive attitude and the faith! What I’m trying to say is, everybody wants to do so much and there are so many excuses that prevent you from reaching your goal, don’t let anything get in the way. This is your life, your story. Make it count. Change that attitude because it will change your life! This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo! (That’s right, I Eminem’d it!)
