Time To Grow Up


“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
― C.S. Lewis

Universities are returning for a new year and, as I see posts from my friends and acquaintances on social media who have returned, it has hit home that it is now time for me to really start to grow up… you know, money, bills and things. But, yes, I have graduated and am now officially trying to find a full time job.

In the time being I am living at home and holding down two part time jobs, both of which I love but it is time for me to move on and start living my own life. It’s a daunting thought but an exciting one. It is probably completely idealistic to be dreaming of my own home and actually being able to fully support myself. If C. S. Lewis’ quote above is anything to go by then it certainly is and I am sure that one day I will be saying it myself. However, for now, in my youth and ignorance I am completely excited by the thought.

Albeit, I first need to find myself a good job before entertaining any thought of this. I must admit that job hunting is proving difficult. I have a degree and yet every single job post requires experience. How do you gain experience if nobody will hire you to get experience in the first place? Oh, dilemmas! And so the hunt shall go on…

Continuing on, however, I can now work on updating posts from my old blog (my student email expired leaving me unable to post). I am yet to post about the outcome of my fundraising for The Epilepsy Society! That shall be posted in due course.

When all things are said and done, it is all okay because I have Milly for company now!
