Learning To Nine 'til Five

Firstly, apologies are in order. Life has once again caught up with me. Those of you who have followed my blog for a little while will know that I upload a new post every other week at 8pm on a Monday, and that has been my routine for quite a long time. Unfortunately, I got all out of sync this month and long story short, it's been four weeks since I gave you all a fresh new outfit to look at.

The main reason for this pause on my blog was my new job. As I've mentioned in previous posts, May marked the end of my second year of university, and so rather than sitting in my pyjamas watching Jeremy Kyle all summer, I thought a job would be slightly more beneficial... only slightly. 

Since starting my job I've had little time to myself, little time to enjoy the weather and little time to see my friends. Boo hoo, poor me, I know right? Whilst I love to keep myself busy, perhaps working 34 hours a week is slightly too busy. 

Being a working girl has pros and cons. I love earning my own money and finally being able to escape that student way of life I've been enduring since September. Being able to treat myself to a new summer wardrobe and holidays is something I love. However, missing out on relaxing bank holiday weekends, nights out with the girls and 28 degree sunshine are all things I don't enjoy about being a full-timer.

Even in the short few weeks I've been back on the 9-5, this job has taught me a lot. Mainly that comprimise is key. If I want a summer holiday and an endless amount of Zara dresses, then off to work I go. Unfortunately at this point in my life I can't have the best of both worlds.

The most important thing my new job has taught me is that working 9-5 isn't for me. As a summer job this will suffice until September, but it's not something I see myself doing in the future. Routine is something I thought I liked, but I've recently discovered that a job where no two days are the same is really what I'm looking for. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying my job now, the perks are good and the people are great, but as for future me, 9-5 will have to be a stepping stone to whatever my pefect career may be.

Thanks for reading, Amy x
