Hi! Remember me? I’d forgive you if you forgot. I’ve kind of forgotten how to write, actually, it’s been so long. I last posted on the blog over a month ago and, in that time, I’ve had one guest post from a brand and I’ve written one guest post for another blogger. Actually, on that note, you should absolutely check out Lucy’s blog (who I wrote the guest post for) and catch up on her body stories series because it’s really wonderful.
So, yes, I’ve been fairly absent. Not just absence of blog posts but absence of tweeting and ‘gramming and pinning and everything, really. I can’t honestly explain what happened but I just woke up one day and fell out with it all.
I read Peta’s post with the same title a couple of weeks ago. It was my #SundayFavourite on Twitter that week because it was just a lovely read, and very relatable. But, the thing is, I’m still thinking about it.
It’s a funny thing because, really, most of the time we’re thinking about what we want. What we want for dinner, which movie we want to see, where we want to go this weekend. I’m a very introspective person and I’m always thinking about what I want from life.
One of the main reasons I quit my job was because it was most definitely what I didn’t want. I got a big sense that I shouldn’t be wasting my very precious time on something that made me so unhappy.
So, I quit my job. It is both the most and the least adult thing I have done for a long time.
You may have already worked this out if you follow me on Twitter/Instagram, and you might be aware that I’m currently trotting about the ol’ globe like a recent graduate. Or, if you happen to snoop on mine & Claudia’s conversations, ‘cause she’s the only person I’ve told in actual words. On Twitter, ofc.
You may have seen some of the travel snaps on Insta and thought “ay up, she’s got some cushy job that allows her to travel” or maybe “she must have some holiday allowance”.
Ha, nope, unemployed life.
