You lovelies are so wonderful! Thanks for your comments and support. I woke up to sunshine and that made me happy. I'm still feeling drained but I can slowly feel the creativity and energy trickle back in.
As I mentioned in my last post I'm doing a job hunt. It's so time consuming and applying can be such a hassle.
For awhile now I've been thinking about what I want my career to be. I've changed my mind over the years and I think it's due to my interests changing. Since year 10, when I was 15 I thought I wanted to be a Physical Education teacher, for high school. I went to an open day at the Queensland University of Technology and spoke to a guy who was in the Human Movement course. He pretty much convinced me and for the rest of my high school life I worked towards that goal.
Well that all changed when I wasn't able to get into the course I wanted. So I did a few other things such as Sports Development. I then went into Social Science at the University of Queensland. My goal was to go into Human Movements after doing a year of Social Science. So I was doing a fill in course and at a university that was not my first choice. The next year I was in Human Movements. Finally I thought I had reached my goal, but I didn't notice that over the years my love for that career had shifted and changed.
So basically I changed courses again and went into the Bachelor of Arts majoring in Sports Studies. I thought I would go into Sports Administration and work with sporting organisations such as Queensland Athletics (which used to be one of my passions). I really only did this degree because I was so frustrated with myself for changing my mind and I just had to have a degree to have something to show for all my years of studying.
So I graduated about 2 years ago and I'm still working in retail, at Myer. I don't mind it but I'm completely over working at a place that was only meant to be temporary. And I could not do retail for the rest of my life.
After much thinking, praying and talking I think what I'd like to be a librarian. I struggled with what I thought others would think, that it's a boring job, that it's nerdy. Stupid reasoning I know but now I've come to terms with that fact that I don't care if people think it's nerdy or boring or only old people are librarians.
And Jason thinks I would be good at it. He is very supportive. My goal at the moment is to work in a library, but I may have to volunteer first to get some experience. For me, I think I would like to work in a library, volunteer at my church and the children's hospital and to have a creative side business, most likely stationery. What do you think??
So we will see how this goes and I will keep you all updated to see how this all goes :)
