Hey guys, you probably have noticed that I have been quite absent on my blog and YouTube channel over the past week or so. I’ve been super busy with work stuff and just general life hence the lack of uploads on both of these platforms. I thought that today’s blog post would be a good time to do a life update post to get you guys up to date with what’s going on in my life at the moment.
This week was my last week at my current job as my contract had ended. I decided not to carry on as two years in a business is a good time to spread your wings and try something new. As this was my last week it was a very hectic one trying to get everything wrapped up before my last day on Friday.
I haven’t got another job lined up as I wanted to take a break in between because I have been working full on for the past two years. When you are working full-time you don’t get holidays like you do in school. You get a certain number of holiday days you can take off during the year but that’s around 20 days.
I’m quite excited to see what the future holds as there are so many amazing companies that I could work for. I am looking more towards the media or retail industry but to do the marketing for their business. I have been applying and I did go to an interview last week but it wasn’t the right job for me. I’m going to be vlogging every day over on my channel until I start my new job.
If you live in the UK then you probably know all about #thebeastfromtheeast which took over the country last week. It was a pain in the butt. In all my 9 years living in London, I have never seen this much snow here. My road was literally covered in snow and hardly anyone used their car when usually the road is full of traffic from commuters getting to work.
Of course, I still had work so that meant getting to work which was a challenge in itself. One day which I think was the day after it had really snowed and the snow had turned into ice. I was wearing the wrong shoes and I slipped over in the middle of the road. I was so lucky a car wasn’t coming because it could have been really dangerous. I was sat there laughing at myself when this guy asked me if I was okay and then I just continued to laugh. I’m so happy that the snow is gone because I’ve had enough of it for one year.
As I have no immediate income at the moment it’s a really good time for me to focus on saving money. For example, instead of buying new beauty products I’m going to use mine up and when they are all gone I will purchase new ones. I don’t need to buy any new clothes as I have loads of them that I can wear.
I’m going to cut down on spending money on food as that’s where most of my money goes. If you cut down you overheads you will be surprised at how much you can live on. My main outgoings are my car payments which I make sure I can pay every month. I’m going to do a blog post on some money saving tips that I have learnt as I find these so handy.
