So first thing’s first.. WHERE THE FUCK HAVE I BEEN?!
Seriously, what has happened? Why haven’t I been blogging? What have I been doing? The past few weeks have been a bit of a blur, and not in the “busy, exciting, making amazing memories” kind. It’s been more of the “tired, uneventful, I’ve done nothing but where has the time gone?” kind. It’s rubbish feeling like that, I really don’t want my life to go by with nothing significant happening to the point where I can’t even remember what happened or where the time went. So enough is enough, I’m back on the blog bandwagon and ready to get my shit together (or try to) once again.
As I try to piece together the puzzle of what I’ve done in the past few weeks, it becomes more and more clear that there is someone who is putting me down and lying to me by telling me I’m not doing enough with my time. That’s right, it’s me! Because although it feels like I’ve been living the Rihanna life – work work work work work work and I’ve no idea what in between, a lot has happened and a lot has changed in the world of Clo.
I took an online course in social media marketing and got a little certificate to prove that I’m an educated human. I also had a long overdue date night with bae, had a long overdue visit back home, and a long overdue night out with my bestie. I moved a little step up my career ladder and had a training thing in Manchester. I had a consultation with a colour specialist on what shades I should be wearing (more to come on that). I got the fitness bug and have been hitting the gym three times a week, surprisingly I’ve been enjoying it, my muscles are telling me otherwise right now. I said goodbye to what has been a big part of my life for nearly 2 years – being a ChildLine volunteer counsellor, and racked up 300 hours of listening to other people who need my ears. But somehow I tell myself I don’t do enough.
Life is too short to waste it or feel guilty just for living it, so it’s time to take the pressure off, love what we do and do what we love once and for all. Coming up on the blog you’ll hopefully be seeing some better photos as I am now the proud owner of an Olympus pen! And I have an exciting little fashurn project coming up next month with a certain someone. Stay tuned!
