School is over..now what?

So on the 19th May I finished my final exam at university. Since then I have been applying for jobs endlessly. In the past month I have applied for over 200 jobs.

How many have I heard back from so far?


It is so disheartening spending hours filling in application forms to not get an acknowledgment back.

I’m just hoping something comes up soon before I run out of money and/or drive myself mad.

Education, education, education.

It’s almost time for me to finish my university undergraduate degree. Just my exams left to finish and then I’m done!

The question I have now is, do I want to continue in education or do I want to find a job I love that can also lead to a career I love?

My brain says I’d like to continue education because I’ve always wanted a PhD but then again, I simply cannot find any PhDs I like the look and sound of. I can’t even find a Masters course that sounds appealing to me.

If anybody has any advice on what they did or whether they enjoyed continuing their education; please leave me a comment below to help me make my decision!

Being crushed by the world..

As I am now nearing the end of my final year at university, I am starting to feel the weight of the future bearing down on me. I’m desperately searching for jobs so I can start a career that I love, I’m panicking about not making the grades I want. Freaking out about having to go to job interviews if I actually get that far.giphy.gif

Unfortunately right now this has all got me feeling pretty stressed out and down, so I’m just hoping something is going to turn my way and make everything seem less terrifying!OGe1orp.gif

If anyone has been through something like this before and has any advice then I am definitely all ears.

Weekly Update!

So, here we are with the third weekly update.

This week I’ve been in work a lot as we are getting ready for the new season and there is so much to be done. We’ve got a brand new restaurant opening and so everything needs ferrying in and we need to have some trial runs so it’s all hands on deck!

Other than that I haven’t had much time for anything else, I’ve been going to work, going to the gym, going home, sleeping and then repeating it all again!

I will find a way to be fit while having a working life, not to mention university and blogging!! I will be organised for the new university year!!

Living Life Clumsy!!

Raise your hand if, even in the safest place around, you still manage to leave with an injury.

*raises every limb of my body*

Yes. That’s right. I am well and truly accident prone.

Recently, I left work with two stitches in my leg, a black eye and two broken fingers. So many injuries in such a short space of time. The worst part about it is that I’m a manager and couldn’t leave, and the day just kept worse and more painful as it went on.

Tiny little bump in the road?
Yep, I’m on my ass.

Piece of glass?
Hello, blood.

Plastic diet coke bottle?
Finger sliced open.

God forbid when we experience snow. I have to stay huddled inside because every excursion out of my door results in slipping and falling and injury.

On of the worst things I did, was on my first day of university, I set myself and a science lab on fire. The best part? I have no idea how I managed it. One second everything was fine, the next there was a distinct smell of burning.
Now nobody wants to be my lab partner, for fear of their life.

Please, leave my a comment below, if you too are like me. I want to know that I’m not alone and then we can compare what the worst thing we’ve done is!!

What Have I Been Up To?

Hi all,

I know it’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I thought I’d fill you in on what I’ve been doing.

I’ve recently had loads and loads of work to do for university, so I’ve been trying the best I can to fit this in between my two jobs.
I’ve also just had a trial week for another job that is 40 hours a week, but I’m not too bothered about that because it is something that I really want to do.
I’ve been hitting the gym in my time off, trying desperately to get fit because in all honesty I want to improve the quality of my life and also my health.
And then with any extra time I’ve had left over I’ve been catching up with my friends and trying desperately to not get overwhelmed with work, and just chilling out.

So what has everyone else been up to with their lives recently?!

Blowdown to Christmas: Been A Busy Wallflower!!

Today I haven’t had any time to do anything at all Christmassy except open my advent calendar.

I have been in university for four hours and work for 16. That is a very long day and I am very tired.

Therefore, this post is going to be very short as I am now curled up in bed, freezing and sleepy.

I’d love to know if any of you guys have done anything Christmassy today (Yes, I know it’s late) and also how any of you bloggers out there can handle education, work and blogging without failing in one or more areas.

Any advice would be so helpful right now as work is getting extremely busy (It is the Christmas period after all) and I really want to keep this Blogdown to Christmas going everyday until Christmas!!
