How I plan to re-invent myself...

So, my previous post title was about being a 'new' me.. and this is the current list of how I plan on reinventing myself!

Since graduating from Uni this past July I've felt a bit like I've hit a dead end, where perhaps it is the exact opposite. Recently I often have to remind myself that I'm only 22 and I have only just come out of full time education. If you count it all (pre-school, primary, secondary, uni), I have pretty much had my life laid out and prepared for me since I was born. But now I have to organise it all and plan where it is I think I am supposed to be going.. and this petrifies me!

Long story short, I am a costume maker. I make costumes, I suppose, for a living. But the lack of money in this career has made me doubt such things lately. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job and I always knew there was little money in it but the only jobs I have had thus far are little to no pay and at the moment I just don't see how I can make a living off this alone. So I have been exploring other ideas and opportunities I could have... but more on that later... maybe ;) I suppose that is my first 'new' me plan but the thing is, I don't want to tell anyone about that just yet!

Typically as a girl, I have had a haircut, adding a fringe to the ol' mop and have recently decided to grow it out again after having it all cut off two summers ago. I am ready for my long hair to make a comeback. Other vain changes include trying new make up and having a proper go at nail art now I have time to experiment. Haha

Another big ol' chunk of change is my weight. Being a female, clearly I'm always after loosing some pounds but I've always put my degree and learning first which I have no regrets with. But now I have my degree and a lot of free time I plan on really making this a goal! Especially with my family recently booking a holiday to Barbados... I now have a target and that is, I have just under 10 months to get into shape so I don't feel so self conscious at the beach!

So I'm not entirely sure if this has all made sense but the two main things in my life at the moment are loosing weight and defining my future career... both will take time and determination! Unsure if this is too personal yet for a blog but I'm kind of treating it all like a diary to write down my thoughts :) Everything is a little cluttered in here at the moment.

I have decided that I don't want my blog to be all text so I am going to have at least one picture in each blog post... whether it is relevant or not :)
