Hi everyone, bit of a life related post today, I just thought it's time that you deserved to know a little bit about me since you've all been so kind to follow my blog. I'm so sorry for the recent absence - I don't really have an excuse, just that life got in the way and I was forcing myself to be inspired by other things. However I have been unable to resist spending forever in the early hours of the morning piecing together outfits for college that I think reflect my personality and I'm really proud of myself for wearing them because some pieces are a bit out of my comfort zone and I have to put real effort into showing up in a gypsy skirt, massive peplum top or heeled boots (see my last post here) and for me, it's an achievement, because when I wear those more risky pieces I get so many compliments on them which makes me feel tonnes more confident and makes me want to do it again! I've discovered that college is the place to experiment with your style, most people don't care so if you wear something that perhaps looks a bit weird, so who gives a damn?
Meeting new people is taking over a little bit as well, I didn't expect everyone to be so lovely! I feel like I've known these people for months, years, rather than 2 weeks. I generally consider myself to be quite awkward in front of new people, however I think I've judged myself too soon, it is brilliant being able to share genuine laughs with so many people that 2 weeks ago I would have never approached.
I like my work, I really do, the people there are so nice and I don't even mind working such ridiculous hours (10 hours next week!!) as long as I get to watch doctor who with a hot water bottle when I get home. I sometimes think that customers don't really see people that work in shops or even restaurants as real people. A lot of them, you can tell, just see you as a machine to give them their change, however there are also lots of good people out there. There are those who come in to buy the paper with £20 who simply want a chat or those who are genuinely interested in that Guilfest wristband that you've been wearing for 2 months or that your sister loves Moshi monsters too or that you love to paint. My point is that the good people are often overlooked and it's not fair. If you have 50% nice customers in one day and 50% not so nice ones, you'll say that most of the customers weren't nice because they're the ones that you remember. Please don't forget the nice people because they're the ones that won't forget you. Don't hang on to the memory of those who see you as dirt that's gone within a second.
Life is a bit hectic at the moment because I'm still getting into the habit of waking up so early and getting home so late. It's tiring. When I first started my blog I had all the time in the world as I'd just left school and my only responsibilities were to make sure my bagel didn't burn in the toaster. Now I consider my blog as another responsibility as you've all taken the time to follow my blog, I ought to deliver. Hopefully I will get back into it soon. I promise to come back with a bang. Give me a few days, a week tops and my blog will be back to it's old self.
I hope that gave you a little bit of insight into my life and the backstage work of my blog, which I do love and put so much effort into. If there's anything you want to know, seriously, just ask!
