A Sort of Life Update…

Since I started writing this blog not only has it grown like crazy, but I have changed a lot too. If your new you might not know this is where my blog started with this kind of honest wordy post and I thought it would be good to reintroduce myself. Because of this I thought I would write a post about me and where I am at the moment. I used to write a lot about my thoughts and feelings and found it helped organise myself just to get it out there instead of it bumping around my head. So, grab a cuppa this may take a few…

Life: Hi, I’m Chloe I am 22 years old and have been blogging for around 2.5 years. I am from a small rural town in Gloucestershire. Most people hate small town rural living but after spending 3 years in London being around green grass and open spaces is the place for me. I love being outside and doing anything creative or just give me a dog or a camera and I will be happy. I don’t really have a favourite colour but I am currently loving Ochre and have quite the collection of ochre jumpers happening at the moment.


Work, work, work: I just have no idea where to go with my work life at the moment because this is the thing I am struggling with the most. I mean on the whole it is great, and all seems all ok, but I can’t help but get in my head about it. I know at the moment I get caught up in work. I work 9-5, Monday to Friday doing admin, plus I teach dance to kids on Wednesdays and Fridays evenings plus Saturday day times. I really don’t really enjoy my day job so much. Yes, it is money but I’ve almost been there almost a year and it’s not really my thing. But I have no idea what to do instead, people like to suggest work ideas to me, but I can’t decide on anything. I work a lot at the moment, and it has taken me a long time to realise that! I’m not super woman no matter how much I like to think I am. I just am not sure where to go with it? I always look at jobs advertised online but haven’t applied for one in months because I have no idea what I want to do. I mean I guess blogging is a job to a certain extent, but it takes a long time to build it into a proper decently paying job which I would like to do, I just don’t think I could really make it into anything that great.


Dance: In the past two years since graduating with my Dance Performance Degree I have had a very up and down relationship with dance. One minute I love it and feel so inspired to create movement and the next I feel so down and uninspired. I attempted to set up my own classes and it didn’t really work because of people not committing. So that has set me back and has admittedly really knocked my confidence. I could try again or try different classes but I’m not a fitness person so even learning to teach fitness really isn’t me. I teach dance as I mentioned earlier, and I really love that. Going to class each week really gives me something to work towards. I always feel more positive about life when I have finished a class, even if it was a rubbish class and nobody listened. I can chuck sequences at them and they even push me and my ideas, which I love.


Aims & Goals: Now my aims and goals at the moment are very minimal. I would like to go on holiday and buy a new car soon but any further than that and I have no idea. Things I would like to achieve? Things I would like to do? Nothing I literally have no thoughts on what I could actually do. I keep giving myself little sewing projects to do and I enjoy doing that. But I am just kind of going from one day to the next and not really achieving anything, but I don’t know how to go about things at the moment.

Reading back through that it was all very negative! I am ok honest just have a lot of thoughts flying around at the moment. I am very sorry you stayed and read it all. I mean I am trying to be positive, but I also let everything get on top of myself which isn’t helpful. I added these very moody pictures to this post as I took them the other week strangely liked them so needed to use them. Onward and upwards right?

Thanks for taking a look at a huge brain fart post!

  1. I liked your brain fart post! You’ll figure it out. I am refiguring things out. Now that my family is getting older, I am trying to refigure out my hobbies because I am now getting back a little spare time. Great pictures too!

  2. Don’t stress it Chloe, everything will become clear in its own good time. Country living (like island living) is great and you have time for reflection. Try a bit of running – it’s great for clearing the head and sorting out the things that matter from the many things that don’t.

  3. Nice to meet you Chloe!! Don’t worry about the negativity, I actually know how you feel and have been having similar thoughts recently! I hope things start to sort out a bit more for you and I totally agree with the green and open spaces!!

  4. Love these photos, Chloe! Especially the one with the two different mirrors. I feel you on the job thing. I love my job but I know I should move on eventually but I’m not progressing towards that at all.
