I didn’t post anything last week because it was a hard week for me to focus. I’d lost someone very close to me and it has been hard. I feel like I am slowing healing and getting back on track. Keep reading for this weeks post.
When I started my blog 6 or so months ago, I set myself some goals to achieve over the next 12 months. 6 months into this, I thought I’d write a little update on how far I’ve got. I’ve written the 5 things I wanted to achieve again below and how far I’ve got.
#1 Settle into my new flat and job
I have definitely done this. I still really like my job and part of me thought the novelty would have worn off by now but it hasn’t! I really like being able to communicate with so many different people in my working week. I really like my flat and where I live because I can walk to work. I keep telling new people I meet about uni and say that I think I have really landed on my feet with this job straight out of uni. I couldn’t be happier with my career start!
#2 Run a 5k – and train for it!
I ticked this one off in November of last year. I started to go to the gym to get my stamina up for the race. I still go to the gym because it has just became part of my week now. I really enjoyed running the 5k and I want to do another one soon, but I can’t seem to find anyone to do it with me!
#3 Learn to drive
I started lessons at the beginning of the year, only an hour a week. I have only just figured out how the clutch works and how to not stall at junctions! I am just really cautious when driving and don’t really like to go to fast at the moment. I’m also reading up on my theory but still need to set a date to do my test. I’ll get there in the end!
#4 Practise my cocktail making skills
This has basically become irrelevant now. I realised what I really needed to do was get a ‘proper’ job before starting my own business. I needed money, experience and the knowledge to set up a business, but I don’t have that as of yet. Being my own boss is still my dream because there is something about it that inspires me.
#5 Learn more Spanish
This is something I have started doing recently. I have an app on my phone that has 5 minute lessons that I can do any time. I’m not confident enough to speak in Spanish in Spain though!
