Lifey post...

by - Monday, October 22, 2012


So I thought is just do a little life update, because once again I should be doing something important like uni work, and this seems like a good way to procrastinate.
So, what's new?
Well, not a great deal. I'm working, and going to uni, with no days off at the minute. I'm also in the process of setting up a placement in a primary school, so ill have even less free time!
If I'm honest though I think it's a good thing for me to be busy, when I have too much time on my hands my brain tends it start eating itself and I can get worked up about things, I have a tendency to over think everything and I'm a big worrier so being busy helps a lot!

As I said I'm working part time, (with hours that are closer to full time tbh) in retail, which just sucks. I mean what I actually do isn't that bad (Staples copy and print center) the people I work with are ok, and generally it's ok, but it's long hours and lets face it, Retail is a bitch. I hate working in retail and I just can't wait to move away from that area. I plan on becoming a primary school teacher in the long run, which in reality is only a short while away. Once I graduate, I'll do a PGCE and be shot of retail forever! Hopefully. So I'm just sticking it out for now, I need something to pay the bills at the end of the day and being that retail is all I have experience in, it'll have to do. I can just totally see why all retail managers are generally arseholes... I mean, if that was my career... (No offence if your in retail management) gosh, how many times am I going to say retail?! Retail, retail, RETAIL,",

Ok. I'm done.

So yeah, what else? Uni is going ok, apart from the fact I need to get my arse in gear and keep on top of the work, it's mainly just reading and note taking that I'm behind with but I just really struggle to motivate myself, it's actually not as bad as I thought it would be for the third year, but maybe that means I'm not doing it right? I just don't think anything I'm doing is beyond my capabilitys at the minute, which is encouraging I guess. Actually graduating and having a degree is becoming real, it's becoming plausible, rather than just something that 'might' happen at some point, that's not to say I didn't think I'd be still doing my degree, just that when you start, you just feel like there so much time, and three years is so long away you can't quite imagine actually graduating, in reality I'm half way though my second to last semester! And those three years are vastly turinging into being only months and weeks left! It's crazy. With everything that's happened during those last few years, I can't quite believe its been that long you know?
I'm actually going to have to become a 'real' adult soon, like with a bonefide job and our own house and stuff, and it's not that, that particularly scares me I just don't feel like I'm 'old' enough to have that kind of responsibility. I don't know, I have this internal debate all the time, I want to be respected and treated like an adult but at the same time I don't actually feel like a respectable adult, it's odd.
Now I'm just rambling.

What else can I bore you with? Oh! Dukan! I know how you all care so much about my stupid diet, right!? Hah
Well so far I've lost 37 pounds, in... What? 9, 10? Weeks? I can't quite work Knut anymore, but basically a lot in not very much time, I'm just so happy with it. I can't quite believe it. And to be honest it's not even an effort for me anymore, it's just like... 'Yeah. This is what I eat'. I'm on target to lose what I wanted to loose by Christmas which is 3stone (+9lbs) a total loss of 51lbs. I have exactly one more stone to lose before the w/c 24th of December, which leaves me 9 weeks! I think it's definitely doable. I might have to take my scales away with me, to get a proper weigh in on that final morning! We're going away over the week surrounding Christmas, to a cottage, where we'll be with lots of family! I can't wait. I'm actually excited about chistmas again, it feels like I haven't been bothered about Christmas in forever! So to actually be excited about it is a big thing for me! Ahh, I just love this while time of year, autumn, Halloween, bonfire night, Christmas!

There's probably a whole load of mistakes in this post, but I'm doing a 'classic me' and not bother to proof read it before I upload It. Ooops.

So yeah, life… is good right now. I'm going to casually gloss over the fact that I had a slight bump in our car the other day and will have to fork out quite a bit of cash over the next few weeks, but other than that! I'm good.

I feel like I should post a picture or something to make it slightly less boring? But I actually can't be bothered. So, I'm sorry.

Once again, if you have gotten this far…
Thank you for reading!

  1. Omg good for you for the Dukan weight loss so far! Really wish I had the willpower to follow the diet, I've only heard good things. I'm the same as you and I need to keep busy otherwise I just get depressed about stupid things. The only thing keeping me busy is uni work though and cba! Good luck with your primary school placement! x

  2. Thank you!

    tbh I think the willpower comes after you've started loosing weight! well it does for me anyway, no way would I have thought i'd be able to loose weight this time 6 months ago. all you can do is try, and if it works, Great!
    I know, I'm the worlds biggest procrastinator when it comes to uni, I can literally put of doing any work until the very last minute! which isn't big or clever! haha.
