The Life Update.

Friday, 10 April 2015

Being 22 and not knowing what you want to do with your life is a really terrifying thought. You think you should have it all planned out and of began to build on your career by now but it seems this isn't the case. Reality is, university doesn't give you all the answers, and what if after your degree, you realise this area just isn't for you?

Lets face it, having no job sounds like the ultimate dream when you're feeling tired from getting up every morning and going to a job you don't like. But when you're in the position of being unemployed and not seeing any change on this in the near future, you have a lot of thinking time on your hands. Ive been through the highs and the very low-low's recently and it wasn't until after a lot of thought and this amazingly inspirational post over on The Private Life Of A Girl about knowing what you don't want in life, that I actually began to consider having this outlook. Don't get me wrong, I still don't know what career I want to enter or how I'm going to get to where I want to be but I now have something that I find exciting and something I know I'm going to be happy investing much of my free time in alongside blogging and job hunting. 

Yesterday I opened a store on Etsy. From before my fashion degree, back into the early school days, I've always enjoyed drawing and find it almost therapeutic. It also gives me a great sense of achievement when I create something I'm proud of and this exact feeling is what I know is going to get me through this hard and confusing chapter of my life. Admittedly, my etsy store is small at the moment and contains my most recent series of flower fashion illustrations, but with dedication and a lot of practice, I definitely hope to expand this in time.

If you do fancy taking a look at my store, adding one of my illustrations to your home or staying up date with any new prints- you can do here.
