Eat. Sleep. Work. Repeat.

My student days are well and truly over. No more lie ins or making fancy breakfasts. No more staying up until midnight because you don't have to be out of the house until midday. And definitely no more skipping days because you just don't feel like it. I have left the world of student life behind and entered the scary realms of actually having to be an adult.

Yes, I've started full time work, and all I can say is thank goodness it is in a field and industry that I absolutely adore. Yes, getting up at 6.30 everyday is still a chore, and having to fit in food, a shower and some me time in all before 10pm is a little challenging, but, having a job I enjoy does make things a little easier. 

One thing I am finding hard is watching the majority of my friends either going back to uni, or moving somewhere else to work or study for their masters. Being back at home does have it's perks. Of course, the money situation is great, as well as having my dinner on the table when I come home, as I get in an hour after my mum. But, of course, it's the being back in my tiny bedroom and not living anywhere near my friends which is the hard part! 

Weekends are also the ultimate struggle. Do I fill it up with visiting friends, or do I veg out for a few days? I am trying to do every other weekend seeing friends, whilst spending the other in front of my laptop watching Netflix and pretending that I've done my chores! It has also meant that I have reconnected with some of my friends from school who I are now in the same boat as me, either having moved back home and working, or who have been here the whole time we have been away. We try and plan something every other, if not every week, whether it's coffee or dinner which is nice to get out of the house. 

Life is ticking along nicely, work is stressful, but in manageable amounts - but my first pay day made it all worth while!

  1. You'll soon fall into a natural routine so try not to stress out about your weekends too much at first! I found that for the first month or two I used to just watch netflix all weekend and then slowly my weekends became more productive. I actually now get up at 7-8am on the weekend and go about all of my chores/socialising/blogging that I haven't had time to do in the weekdays!

    P.S - congrats on the job and I'm glad you've found an industry/job you enjoy!
