A Pep Talk

I am so deflated at the moment. 

Y'know, the kind where you could just stay in bed for a week, binge watching netflix, making no effort with anything at all because you're so fed up and tired?

Although sadly, I'm not doing that because I'm working a 9-5 job which is really, really not for me. I feel like I could write a million things about it but slagging off your workplace online isn't exactly the most professional thing to do.

Long story short, I cannot quit. Well, I could but the reasons for staying outweigh the reasons for going so I'm not going to quit. Mostly because I have a masters to pay for and unfortunately, it ain't gonna pay for itself (but if a bursary comes along, party round mine..)

So I've given myself this weekend to do the above - mope around watching films, feeling sorry for myself. I do feel bad for feeling bad too because I know that so many people would kill for the job I'm doing.

But I guess I'm not most people.

And ow I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I cannot do anything about the current situation I'm in so need to accept it for what it is, instead of constantly fighting a losing battle. I know it's not as easy as deciding to be happy about doing something I don't love, but faking it until you make it is half the battle, right?

So this morning, I've put on a summer dress, red lipstick and sparkly shoes in the hope that I'll feel 10 million times better about life. It may not work instantly but y'know, at least I'll look good! I've made some plans to look forward to and I have a countdown on my phone, working towards 16th September. 74 days, not that I'm religiously looking or anything.

This post is for me, to re-read when I'm feeling particularly uninspired by life. Nothing lasts forever; nothing is permanent. This too, shall pass.

I'm in pretty much the same situation as you at the moment, stuck in a rubbishy office job purely trying to save up to get out of it (in my case I'm saving up to go travelling for a couple of years). It sucks at the moment but just got to remember it will be over soon and life will be sooooo much better!
