Dear, January


Woah, is this my first post of 2015?
*blows away the cobwebs* 

This month has been... unusual. It has been emotional, difficult in parts, a time for new beginnings. It has been tiring, exciting, and uninspiring - all at once, but yet, still quite good as a whole... I guess that is life, right?

I have applied for a new job, which is quite big, for me. I tried hard at my PGCE interviews at the beginning of the month, but still got nowhere, and thinking about it, that's why I haven't been feeling particularly creative - those knock-backs are hard, y'know? And putting myself up for them, year after year, is taking its toll. 

So I'm taking a new direction, with a clearer mind and a lot less pressure on myself.  I'm gaining some of my confidence back, looking after myself better and still optimistic that this year will be much better than the last. There's always a silver-lining, no matter how deep the water. 

And this little break has done me good. I'm back and ready to put my all into my blog again. I have missed it! And you, I have missed communicating and expressing myself - even if no-one reads this - it's refreshing. So, hello! How are you? It's nice to have you back. I promise more exciting things are to come...

Dear, January... 

Thank you for being testing and showing me that I am made of strong things, that I can make positive changes and stand on my own two feet. Thank you for giving me my inspiration back and for making me feel excited about the direction of my future for the first time in many months. Thank you for allowing me to grow as a person. You have been a learning curve.

How has your month been?

  6. Receiving a good quality essay service can be expensive, and trying to number out how to pay for this service can be difficult and unsatisfying. Maximum students worry about this assignment writing by queensland-assignment.
