January 2018 for me, personally, has been a bit of a strange one.
Over the Christmas period I worked a temp job Chaperoning the kids who were involved with the local panto show. The whole thing, rehearsals and show days, were just an absolutely incredible experience for me. I honestly loved it so much.
The job consisted of me working six days a week, as we always had one day off, and the job didn’t end until December 31st. After that, I had a week before I was back at my part-time job, which gave me a huge adjustment period.
For nearly the entirety of January my sleep schedule was completely out of whack. I also felt like I had barely anything to do as well.
I must’ve spent at least 80% of my time playing games either on my laptop or WiiU, just enjoying the time to do as I pleased.
The majority of the remaining 20% was me working on my book.
I am so, so proud of myself for the work I managed to do over January when it came to my book, I managed to do more work in those few weeks, than I did during all of last year… and now, I’m stuck again.
But I will pull through! Hopefully I’ll be able to get out of this phase and make some more progress!
And the last bit of my January was probably the most difficult part. Answering the question “Well, what now?”
Choosing a career, for me, has not been so easy.
Things didn’t seem to go right and I was left pretty damn lost on my path.
With this in mind, it took me a few years to even consider trying to be a writer in some way.
Although I am working on both my blog and my book, at some point in the near future I would like to take the chance on also becoming a freelance writer.
Taking risks and leaving my comfort zone is something I am not very good at, but, I will do my best to dedicate this year to being the year I do more of that, even if it’s one small step at a time.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my January of 2018! Feel free to let me know in the comments on how yours was!
