If I had to sum up my 2015 in one word, I would call it eventful. 2015 was the year that I turned 30 and with this milestone age, there comes a mythological kick up the behind. You realise that life is short and you are one third of your way through the journey; and that is if you are lucky. My mythological kick got me to put the breaks on YouTube channel (something that I never thought I would do) and focus on real life work.
I am definitely not where I thought I would be at this age. I guess I only have myself to blame here; setting unrealistic expectations on life and not realising that 30 is actually a young age makes for a person to class him/ herself as a bit of a failure. It is not a good feeling my friends.
For those of you who may be unaware, my background is in Psychology. YouTube, beauty and fashion blogging has always just been a hobby for me. In 2015, I wanted to pursue my career in psychology further. It was going to be either that, or try a hand at HR. And if that failed, then perhaps become a teacher. I was as all over the place as I sound and I did end up with some questionable experiences on the job front and I ended up with some very important life lessons...I learnt that children aged 3 to 4 are the cutest ever and they absolutely adore me (I would make a fantastic mother!). I also learnt that recruiters and managers are never as nice as they show. They are just helpful so long as they can get something out of it. Please don't get confused by their friendliness; people are only nice and friendly because it just makes for an easier life. But that is a blog post/ video for another time. Seriously, I have a lot to say on this but since I do not work for myself and will probably not be working for myself in the foreseeable future, I will just leave it here for now. (P.S If my current manager is reading this, I think you are lovely. Please do not fire me!! Eeek!)
30 is also the point in a woman's life where she wants to settle down with someone who she deems as more than just alright and then start making mini people. That was also something I thought would have happened by now. But to be married, you got to date and to date, you got to meet people. Now, I am stuck.....where am I supposed to meet who? Urghhh.....I give up. I would love to meet some handsome guy without it being contrived; so I am saying 'hell no!' to online dating and forums and 'Hello' to traditional we just met aross the room and knew instantly. The later kind of love will take time; but hey, that's okay, I'm in no rush....
And then we come to the present day. 2016....Gosh; that still feels like the future to me. Imagine that, children born in 2000 are now 16!! Times are going by waaaay too fast these days!! Anyway, I digress.....This post is basically a very long winded way of saying Happy New Year guys; here's how my 2015 went down. Hope it was good for you and more importantly, hope that this will be an even better year for you.
Lots of love from me to you!! :)
