My 2017 Focus: Graduate Life

January 09, 2017

I've started and stopped blogging more times than I can count. While the first week is full of promises of regular posts and a fancy content marketing schedule, the reality is much different. In the past, I have always struggled to find the time to blog regularly and often lost motivation to think of new ideas.

But now I find myself feeling very lost amidst the chaos of the 'real world' that people keep welcoming me to. When I graduated from university six months ago with no clue what to do next, I really struggled to adjust. The pressures of getting a job and standing on my own two feet were more than I could handle.

Luckily, I did land myself a job relatively quickly without time to think over exactly what it is I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to travel, but with -£1500 haunting me on my internet banking, that was really out of the question. So it became my plan to work for a year and then go travelling. But six months on and I'm really no closer to paying off my overdraft or having the funds to traipse around Asia.

So here I am, still dreaming of those lazy Netflix days where I could convince myself that two hours of reading was a good days work. Now I work eight and a half hours a day, five days a week and my god, the weekends come and go quicker than you could imagine.

Reading and writing has always presented a form of escapism for me. It seems a no-brainer that re-entering the blogging world would provide me with the tools I need to figure a few things out. If talking about my experiences as a graduate helps me find my way in this big wide world then this blog is worthwhile. If it helps ease anyone else's post-graduation struggles then I have far exceeded what I set out to do.

So that's why my blog focus for 2017 is graduate life. Mostly to stop myself going crazy but hopefully provide you with some insight into life after university. Follow me as I inch my way around the world, find affordable beauty treasures, and give some hints and tips on how to deal with becoming a fully fledged adult.

Here's to 2017!
