March, April, May, June; July would soon be ticking away and boom. Half the year will be gone. Before I know it, Christmas will be here again and I won’t have done what I set out to do back in January 2018.
In January 2018, I decided, like many of us do, that I wanted a change. After a relatively dreadful New Year’s Eve alone in an empty house I had grown to dislike, I was determined to make things more interesting in 2018. So, I investigated new parts of London, hunted for a new job, quit my old job, bid farewell to my university town and moved to West London.
By February 2018 I was ready to go. It had not taken long. I packed up my things, moved house, took a quick trip to Abu Dhabi and started my new job in mid March. Unfortunately, that very job didn’t work out and 10 weeks after starting, I was advised I was being let go due to financial crisis within the company. Fantastic.
I had uprooted my whole life for this new opportunity. I had added hundreds of pounds to my monthly expenditures. Termination was immediate. I headed for home.
By the time I had reached my bus stop, it had started to rain. The day just kept getting better, but I knew London didn’t want to consume me. It was time to do what I wanted. No more stuffy jobs with menial day to day tasks and dry office conversations. It was time to do what I wanted. It was time to be humble. It was time to make a fresh set of mistakes. It was time to chase my dream.
After a less than desirable university experience, I have decided to jump on the blogging bus.
Hopes for my Blog
I have created this blog as a way to keep track of my portfolio, share my stories, experiences and hopefully meet some new creatives. As I write this, I am sitting in the park on a sunny afternoon. The air is warm and the sky is blue. The park is empty because it is a Monday afternoon.
Peaceful and glorious, I know I have made the right choice. It will be this moment that I need to remind myself of when, in a few months time, I am sitting at my laptop on a rainy Wednesday thinking ‘why the blooming heck did I decide to do this again?’
Let’s see what lies ahead.
