Day 30 – Hopes For Your Blog (30 Day Blogging Challenge)

So I kinda touched on this in my intro posts but I felt I should elaborate anyway. 
I don’t really have any specific hopes for this blog. I hope that I keep it up. I hope that I can use it as a outlet for any negative thoughts and anxiety that I’m feeling rather than getting inside my head too much. I hope that I can turn my rants into mildly funny posts, as when I’m struggling with my mental health I also tend to get very irritable along with my low moods.
I hope that me being open about my mental health makes just one other human feel a little bit less alone. I know that before I came across anyone else talk about it I felt like a freak. Why is everyone else coping and I can’t? Does that make me weak/pathetic? Now I know that dealing with life’s pressures alongside dealing with depression & all the demons that brings makes me incredibly strong.
I hope that reading my drivel is fun for at least some of you. Not everyone will like it, I’ve always been an acquired taste.
So if you’re reading this, thanks very much. I’m absolutely thrilled you have to you. Xxx

Day 15 – Where Will You Be In 5 Years? (30 Day Blogging Challenge)

I’m thinking this will probably be a short post because I don’t have a great idea of where I want to be. This month I turned 20 so in 5 years time I’ll have just turned 25.

 

I definitely want to have the letters ‘Msc’ after my name in 5 years as I hope to have completed a masters degree by then. Career-wise I don’t know what I want to do but I hope that by 25 I’ll be doing a job that I love, with opportunities for progression, whatever the role is. I guess it will be nice to have met someone by then (it’s just daunting on me that my mum was married with her first child by the age of 20 and I think its making me feel a bit behind!) but realistically, there’s still plenty of time for that after 25.

 

I definitely hope to have a car by then (well before then, I’m not fussed about having a nice car at all, just a little runaround to get me from A to B). It would be nice to not be living at home whether that’s living by myself, with a partner or with friends…but I don’t think 25 is particularly old to be living at home these days. Especially as I will have moved out for 3-4 years already for university, it might be nice to be around them a bit more.

 

So yeah this was really vague and non-committal and I apologise! If you have a stronger sense of direction than myself do please let me know the wonderful things you plan to get up to in the next 5 years!
