Festive season has ended for another year and as usual I’m aghast at how fast the previous year has flown by. Honestly, it gets me everytime!
Life lately has been a little strange. The festive season was quite exhausting and we didn’t really get any time off from training so it kind of went by in a bit of a blur.
I wasn’t sleeping well and felt over-scheduled. I also had some personal things to deal with. I think I even manged to loose weight as opposed to gaining which is practically criminal for this time of year.
My brother-in-law’s family from Ireland came over to visit us and we had a fantastic time getting to know them and bring in the new year.
The past week has been more relaxed, and as the girls had two road games this weekend past, I actually got to have a little down time of my own to enjoy.
I have until now and late March to work out exactly what I will be doing as a post-university student, which believe me, is easier said that done. The communications/media field is a tricky one and you often have to work for free doing internships and volunteering before you can actually catch a break with paid work. Many employers are reluctant to take on a completely raw candidate so the more experience you have the better. It’s also incredibly handy if you have a network of influential pals…. “It’s not what you know it’s who you know” couldn’t be a more real statement at present.
Social climbing has never been my forte and is 100% a pet peeve of mine, so I will definitely be keeping my dignity with whatever avenue comes my way. I realise some people have the “whatever it takes” mentality (and good on them), but I firmly draw the line at anything completely superficial such as sucking up the asses of jerks.
Yesterday was well spent, tottering around Fremantle markets with my mum and a couple of girlfriends with no constraint. I even walked out with some snakeskin ballet flats and two lovely shirts from Good Sammy. Grand total of $10! (Pictures soon)
So while I’m still unsure what my next movements will be, I feel like I’m open to and happy for anything. If anyone has any grand ideas for me, feel free to throw them my way!
