Commuter Problems

Another day, another delay on the southbound northern line service. Traveling on a packed underground into London, whilst surrounded by people in suits with briefcases, lost in the Metro is not my idea of living.

On average, it takes me 40 minutes to get to work. That’s over an hour of traveling to and from work everyday – not to forget my trips to waste money at lunch.

There’s one thing that you can never gain back or stop or pause – and that’s time. We underestimate how precious time really is and the potential of what we could do if we had more of it.

If I had taken the earlier train, I wouldn’t have ever got stuck in this delay and ode already be in the office sipping on my cup of coffee. But I did take the later train and alas I’m late.

Point is, if you spend more time thinking about things like what you want from life, where you would want to live and what you would want to do with yourself – it’s not really wasting time cause you’re living. Cooped up in an office, doing something I don’t want to do and wasting time is not in my eyes.

Positive Thinking, Positive Outcomes – Work Life

So…

On Thursday I was offered the chance to start an internship in a boutique PR agency, specialising in international travel and b2b events!

Over the past few weeks of job seeking, I’ve been to some interviews in a few pretty amazing companies and also got to understand which industries really interest me. Life’s hard when you’re fresh out of uni and still haven’t found your niche.

So far, in the last 2 years I’ve gained experience in luxury property and travel, food and drink, tourism and events.

Internship or no internship, I don’t care. I’m getting first-hand experience working with a small and friendly team in a new and exciting niche.

One step at a time, picking up experiences along the way – on a journey to find my calling.

In Two Days…

I could be the luckiest girl in the world.
(Well in my eyes that is.)

It’s been a long week job-hunting since I left my job – and after going to loads of interviews, I actually managed to nail a particular one at somewhere I REALLY want to work.

Maybe trying to imagine I already have the job will work… I don’t care. All I know is, I’m focussing all of my positive energy in case it does.

Hopefully my next work update on Friday will be a positive one. Fingers crossed.

After Months, I’ve Finally…

LEFT MY JOB!

After months of battling morals and feeling smashing my head against my desk every now and then – I am finally free!

It sounds weird for a recent grad to be happy that they are once again in the rat race to find a job. But I swear, I feel this is a blessing in disguise.

Like I said before, I would rather be happy in a job than earn a good wage doing something I can’t enjoy.

Finally I have the time to focus on the goals I’ve set for myself, starting with:
