New Year, New Me Series: My Life, My Way.

I have been thinking recently about what I am going to do with my life. Now that I am back from travelling and am coming up to the end of my seasonal sales job, I am looking into starting my career properly.

For the time being, I would love a part time job to keep a small amount of funds coming in as I really  need the extra time to myself to progress on learning my coding work. I really want to enter the Web Development industry on a profession level. I would prefer to be freelance, so I can have my own space, my own work environment and work around my own holidays and plans also.

I am also looking for an apartment for either just myself, or to share with one quiet friend. Since I suffered with Anxiety, I have been finding it difficult to be around noise, too many people and a whole range of other things. I want my space that I will be able to escape from and the ability to work on whatever projects I have, whenever I want, with no noise distractions!

If I want to be completely happy with myself, I need my space, my work, my funds and my friends/family.
I would like to also work in an office environment from time to time, but I feel like for the time being, I need to find out who I am as a person and see if I can give my dream aspirations a go!
I know that people might think that I am pushing my luck, but how am I going to know without trying, right?

Always think and aim big, you don’t have anything to lose!
Ambition is key.

What are your goals for this year? Let me know!

Time for the next step in my life!

I’m feeling like a little post on whatever is on my mind, at the moment.
I am so excited for the next chapter of my life. I am hoping to move to London (surrounding areas, as it’s cheaper) and to hopefully get a Junior Web Developer job.

I cannot wait to start looking at apartments/houses and at jobs that I would love to do!
I even went to Currys today, had a look at all of the home products and fell in love with the Dyson V6 Absolute (link here) too! I have all these future visions in my mind right now – it’s exciting!

I personally feel that when I don’t live at home, I feel like a completely different person. I am me.
I am more mature, I will cook for myself, eat healthier and I will enjoy it too. I will also bake a lot more, which I love doing as it will be my kitchen. I will enjoy decorating my place as I adore some interior design and cannot wait to purchase some amazing pieces for my kitchen – such as the Phillipe Starck juicer, that I have had my eye on since I was about 15/16!

I find this so exciting and by being a christmas temp at work, it is giving me that extra kick to get through my Coding course online, work harder and faster to get ready by the time that I am finished with work in January! Too much motivation going on right now!

I know that it can be expensive living in the surrounding areas of London, and I know that the wiser choice is to live with more people to make it cheaper. But I personally believe that I can find something smaller for cheaper, if I really look properly (I have already found a few beautiful places that would be perfect!). Although it would be cheaper, I think that it is personally worth me paying that little bit extra so that I can be happier and less stressed with the people I will live with! Definitely worth the money for me!
I like my own space, peace and quiet when I can get it and clean clean clean spaces!

I cannot wait to have my place, my own decor, a bookshelf, have a Mon/Fri 9-5, go out for a relax and coffee on the weekends, be able to do one of London’s many things in my spare time (museum, galleries, book stores, shopping, sights, meet up with friends..) I simply cannot wait!
Is it just me that’s in this stage at the moment? Anyone else feeling like this? Get excited over the little things like what products to have or decor? I cannot wait, and yes, my butt is so on Pinterest right now having a browse!
I feel like I have so many ideas in my mind right now that I need to write it all down – I might have another good go at Pinterest this evening and get my brainstorms out in one go!
Apologies for the ramble!

Out and about recently!

Yet again, it’s been a while since I blogged properly due to work and trying to squeeze in a social life!
I uploaded a quick video not long ago, which will have a post of its own here soon! Also, I will be editing another one very shortly which is an update from quite a few weeks but it’s more of a vlog finally!

So, I went through a rough little patch within the last month but had so many good moments too.
I felt a bit down as I was working so much, although I need the money, was constantly at the doctors because of my chest and wrist popping out, so I had so many tests done on me.
On the brighter side, my chest is a lot better now and I’m getting back to normal! Wahoo!

A few things I’ve done?
I went on a boat party with my hostel as they were apart of an event, which was really fun! I’ve been to the cinema quite a lot recently and even had my first bowling experience in Australia, which was funny as I was so, so bad!
I also went to Featherdale Wildlife Park which was in my last post, too!

I have started to slowly get a routine back again and I’m hoping to try keep it up! I need to blog more especially towards Christmas, take more photos and make the most of my days off, read more (I just started reading the new Zoella book!) and start to have less take out food as my body is bleurgh and I need to save money to travel!

So..
Update me on what you’ve all been doing recently!
I’m so jealous of all the Christmas/autumn winter related posts everywhere, as I’m a complete winter girl! Expect a Christmassy thoughts blog post coming up soon!
Let me know what posts you also want to see, too!

If I’m not updating enough on here, then there’s also my Instagram (@nuggetstumpblog) and twitter @_nuggetstumpblog and @nuggetstumptrvl which I hope to update more frequently for you!
