Life Update: Some BIIIIIIG Changes...

So yeah. It's December. Almost time for the cliche 'new year new me' bullshit that you see clogging up your newsfeed on every possible social network. Then fast forward 12 months and they're still fat, still single, still not organised and still haven't saved a penny. It's hilarious because I am usually the first person who is like OH MY GOD SHUT UPPPPP *eye roll into the next century* but next year is gonna be prettttttty different for me.

I've got a new job in an industry I LOOOOVE and I've moved back out of my parents house! *insert face screaming in fear emoji here* So some pretty huge changes have been going down. I'm now living in a city which, before I came about a month ago to flat hunt with my parents, I had never been to in my life, and I've started a new job so that's completely new territory too. Fortunately for me, I haven't had do do a Lindsay Lohan and eat my lunch in a toilet cubicle by myself because my new colleagues are lovely, and my new housemates seem nice too. 

I'm learning to cook, do my own washing, still haven't a fucking clue how to iron mind you, and pay my own bills. To most 24 year old this is standard daily routine and you're probably reading this in absolute disbelief but anybody who knows me will know I lived a verrrrryy sheltered life (lolz) and my mum literally does (or did...wah) EVERYTHING for me. Like everything. She still cuts my sandwich into triangles and makes me sugar-free jelly and greek yoghurt to take to work. Yeah- really. Like, I'm 24 and I don't know how to iron. Or use a washing machine without shrinking/dying my clothes. In fact I've only just mastered how to put my duvet cover back onto my duvet ffs. ANYWAY. Back to the point, I might actually grow up a bit this year!

I've been here a week now, and I STILL haven't unpacked- due to the fact I have been so busy!!! I've been to two blogger events (HOORAYYYY for there being so many Leeds/Sheffield bloggers!) I've been for dinner with a friend who I haven't seen for a year, I've been taken on a night out by a friend from work (which was eye opening to say the least) and next week is filling up nicely too. So, call me over optimistic but it's turning out to be a really positive change in my life. And it's actually pretty frustrating actually to know how many opportunities I have been missing out on purely because I was too scared to just step outside of my comfort zone! 

So anyway, that's why I have been a bit quieter than usual on my social networks recently, but I'm back and planning some exciting things for the new year!

Here's to new beginnings!
