Making big life decisons


Its taken me a while to get round to writing this but I wanted to let you all know where I am, not location but where I am in my life. As some of you may know for the past  months I had been working full time. Long story short; I'm not working there any more. I had been considering giving up my job for a while, this sounds terrible I mean I spent 8 months looking for a job and I was happy there but I finally realised what I wanted to do and I knew I couldn't attempt to do that If I was still working full time.

I finally realised that I want to be a writer, I love writing this blog so much and I have so many ideas that I want to do something with and as much as working full time was great, it wasn't for me. When I say it wasn't for me, I don't mean full time work I just mean the job sector I was in wasn't the best for me. Lets just say If your not much of a people person or you find arrogant and rude people hard to deal with then customer service (Food service industry) may not be for you.

 I loved my job, there were days when I had so many lovely customers who would make you feel appreciated for the service you were providing but then there were days when I would have customers that were extremely rude. I expect comments about my weight and my appearance from people my own age, its sad but true. I was deluded to think that adults had more respect for people. At the end of the day I found it difficult to hold back, normally If someone makes a comment to me I'm quick with sarcasm and fight my corner a bit but unfortunately I knew I couldn't do this.

I felt terrible handing in my resignation letter, simply because my mangers were so lovely and great to work with. I had an amazing group to work with but one by one they started leave  and many of us were in constant chats about wanting leave, the fun of the job was wearing thin and I had a week where every customer I served was so rude that I had finally had enough. In my last week I almost had an argument with a women about earl grey tea, I'd sort of gone past caring in my last week which sounds bad but was slightly fun.

I've got so much planned for this blog in the new year, I'm looking into advertising for it on other more well know blog pages and I want to focus on this so I can make this space online a place where I can just be creative. 

Thanks for listening to my little post about my life decision.
Thanks for reading.

Bye for now xxx
