Real Talk: Current Mood and Musings

Updated: Apr 16, 2020

I feel like lately I’ve been in a slump. I want to be doing more and contributing more to my community and just feeling more fulfilled.

I graduated from university 10 months ago and I thought I would be in a different place by now. I guess I’m just disappointed that life’s not necessarily following the timeline I had imagined for myself.

One of my goals was to start a blog after uni. I did do that and have been adding to it consistently for 6 months. Which I can celebrate as a little success! I also started a new sport (archery) and have been enjoying doing that with my family.

Career-wise though, I haven’t been as successful. I’m working two part-time jobs whereas my ideal would be to pursue one full-time role that would give me the opportunity to learn more about my field.

I’ve been applying consistently to jobs, but to no avail. So I think I need to change my mindset and start with a fresh outlook.

In everything I do, I try to come at it with an open-minded and minimal approach. But in terms of applications, I was approaching them as a maximalist. I thought quantity was the priority: to send out as many job applications as I possibly could.

Since this tactic isn’t working, I think I'm going to step back and try to redefine my goals in order to pursue my job hunt with more mindfulness. I want to set realistic but specific goals and work more holistically to achieve them. Everyone says networking is vital and I think that’s one area that I definitely need to prioritize more.

This blog has been a great creative outlet for me since I’m no longer in school. I love that I can talk about fashion and thrifting and my pursuit to a more considerate closet in one little space. So thanks for stopping by and reading even though this wasn’t the most fashion-oriented post.

If you want the details of my outfit:

Jeans: Everlane Cheeky Straight

Sweater: Thrifted

Coat: Noisy May

Purse: Thrifted

Jewellery: Mejuri

Shoes: Thrifted
