Serious talk now, i like to do that ever once in a while to balance out the realness of my posts, and just cause i want to talk to the people who read my blog posts, that's if anyone ever does. But yeah for months and months i have been searching for a job after i left college in May, no luck whatsoever. I guess it comes down to the fact i have no retail experience and that's what employers in shops and supermarkets look at nowadays, not at my grades, just experience. It's been a pretty shit year for me to be honest, my confidence disappearing and motivation next to zero, i really needed something to boost myself to help me get back on track with real life. Having hardly any money and drifting away from a lot of people i wish i never did can get very lonely and very sad quickly.
I feel like the dark clouds have finally moved away from me and having a job offer from somebody i know has completely changed my perspective in life. All i needed was one person to give me a chance, knowing i had no experience in next to nothing, really boosted me. I know I'm getting proper deep into emotions and stuff but i honestly feel like a better person, and i haven't even started working yet. But I'm literally so excited to be working, it being my first job i know the nerves will come swimming in on my first day but i just feel like I'm going to learn so much from this experience and i can't wait to start.
The job I've managed to grab is in a gift shop in my local town, the manager is a friend of my mum and dad, she likes to keep her workers close as her daughter and her daughters best friend also work there. I'm excited to start next week, plus there's a 25% staff discount and I'm already eyeing up several Yankee Candles in there! ;). I just thought i'd share with you guys cause i like to get serious every once in a while to keep you updated with things, if that's okay with all of you :).
Hope everyone's having a lovely Sunday.
