Hello Everyone

By 1:43 PM

Where do I even start really? It has been a long, long time since I last blogged on here, or blogged at all. But at the moment, I really feel like I need to say some things and this place seems as good as any.

Why did I stop blogging? I don't really have an answer for that really. It wasn't life, it wasn't work, it just wasn't anything really. But right now, I feel is a good time to start blogging again and rather than write something that might be only a small part of who I am, it's going to be more about who I really am.

Look back over my last few posts, I don't feel a lot has really changed in my life since I wrote them, especially my new years resolution list. I'm going to get right to the point with the first one - Jobs! I never really said what it is I actually do, but I have kind of eluded to it. I am a qualified primary school teacher. I qualified in 2011 and since then I have been trying my damned hardest to get a teaching job with very little success. I have had interviews this past few months, but I am literally the worst at interviews. I wind myself up, I get so nervous and anxious and have so little confidence that I can get the job that I probably end up coming across like that in the interviews. I have been working in a school since I qualified as a teaching assistant, but for a number of reasons, I quite my job in July. I decided to try supply teaching but to be honest, I am hating it - I just don't think it is for me and it isn't doing me any good mentally. So that is the situation job wise.

I still haven't finished Mockingjay in response to reading! I would like to say I am reading more but when you have a beautiful iPad with a Netflix's account and a NowTV account it is all too tempting. I do read magazines, I am becoming a bit of a magazine fiend as I currently have three in waiting to read. I have read some books this year and I completly enjoyed All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and I devoured Girl Online On Tour by Zoe Sugg aka Zoella on a recent long car journey. But as all the books currently on my shelf eye me up with evils every day and my eReader feeling very sorry for itself, I must resist the temptation of the iPad.

The branching out with food started well for the first few weeks and it pretty much stopped there. I am a simple person with simple taste when it comes to food. The nail thing kinds of passed on as well.

As for the writing a book, that has kind of taken a big turn this summer as I am currently knee deep in writing one that I actually started this summer, rather than finishing writing one that I already started. I get ideas and I roll with them, rather than finishing another one. It's bad I know, but I am hoping that the one I am currently concentrating on will get finished, as that idea train that I have has already written it's sequels, including an ultimate ending, so I kind of need to write how I get there, before getting there.

As for blogging, I really want to get back into it and not just beauty blogging anymore. I seem to be doing the same old cliche thing of starting a fresh and going in a different direction, but I don't want it all just to be me talking. I still want to do the beauty stuff, but I also want to do more of what else I like, like baking and knitting and places I visit and DIY and just everything that is me in a blog. I kind of think this thing needs a new title as well but I'm going to have to work on that.

For now though, even if no one is reading this, thank you for listening.
