I’ve had a really nice chilled day today, I don’t work Monday’s at the moment as I made some dealio with my Pappa that I can have Monday’s off to get my uni work done and for now it’s been allowed (shout out to my Daddy for making my life a little less stressful – woo).
So instead of me giving you a run down of my day, I thought I’d capture my day in ten photos. Here goes!
MIDDAY FIRES TO FIGHT THE FOG.
YOGA AND STRETCHING.
LOVE ME A STUFFIN’
I do my Sunday’s on a Monday.
Why is it that being a 20-something, you always feel like your time is limited and people are always wanting you to split yourself in ten different directions all at once?
I had last Friday off of work for a ‘Tay Day’ and I do not feel relaxed at all. Is it that I had the nagging feeling all day that my Spanish work was calling me? Or was worried about my German exams? Or that all of my friends have the freedom to go out every Friday and Saturday night and I no longer have the time or money to be able to join them every time? Either way, it’s really tiring and stressing me out.
I used to be able to go out Thursday, Fridays and Saturday every weekend, go to the gym 4 times a week and still have ‘me’ time. Does studying for a degree and a boyfriend really eat up so much of my time? Weighing up what makes me happy in life and what are necessities is becoming an issue recently. Realistically I’d like to do shift work or at least 4 days a week instead of 8-5 Monday – Friday, it is so mundane, but like most I have bills to pay as I don’t live with my parents anymore.
I don’t regret not doing full-time Uni, or else I would never have travelled or worked up in the city. But I am beginning to wonder if I have taken on too much. I rarely see the gym anymore, I can barely afford to go out once a week and I’m hardly keeping up with my deadlines.
I guess this is more of a rant than anything else. I’ve read a lot of blogs online recently about the same issue, we all think we have it the worst. I guess I have to put things into perspective sometimes and realise there is more to life than getting a degree, getting hammered and affording nice clothes.
That is all.
