Getting a Job and Starting School

11/05/2017


It has been quite a while since I even looked at this blog. The summer came and things happened and this was the last thing on my mind. So much happened this summer that definitely changed my perspective of things, like how people change and so do you. I definitely feel like I have changed in a good way and I am just letting life take over from now on. Summer may not have been the best, but you just have to keep going. 

A lot is new in my life at the moment. I currently have a part-time job at a little bakery/restaurant near my school and I like it so far. I've only been there for about 2 months now and I was TERRIFIED to work there. But now I'm enjoying it a lot. Everyone there is really nice, and it's like one big family. Even people that have quit come back all the time and hang out. I'm still learning new things about it and gaining new people skills to help me in the real world.

Getting a job definitely helped me gain more confidence in myself. There's always customers complimenting the work I do, and a lot of regulars have grown to like me. I always get the usual "Isabella? Well, what a beautiful name for a girl like you!" and sometimes the "What?! Six dollars for a 1/4 chicken? This is crazy! What is this!". Thanks to this job, I'm more comfortable with talking to people. I'm less afraid of speaking to new people and just being myself. Before, I was afraid to ask staff at the grocery store where certain things were. A little bit of social anxiety I guess. I'm definitely way better with it now, and getting a job has definitely helped with it. And I'm getting payed so I guess its a win-win kind of thing!

Another thing that I have improved on is my health. Like I've said in the past, I've always had body issues and I've never been happy with the way I look. This summer, as I sat at home doing absolutely nothing, I renewed my gym membership and I've been going ever since. I reconnected with an old friend of mine and she encouraged me to go with her sometimes. She's encouraged me to start using the weight machines. And trust me, weights make a much bigger difference. I've been paying attention to what I put in my body and I try to drink a lot of water. I am working out and eating better to not only improve my fitness, but to help myself out mentally. I've definitely noticed that my anxiety has gotten better and I've been happier and in a better mood. I'm becoming more confident because I am seeing the progress in the way I look. Working out definitely helps me clear my mind and its interesting to find out what you can do. 

I'm back at school and its been pretty boring. I have some fun courses this semester like business, but other than that nothing else. Me and my old friends are on good terms and we still talk sometimes. One of them more than the other, but I think its better that way. I've made new friends that I am definitely way happier with. 

My writing skills are a little rusty, mainly because I don't have english this semester, and because I haven't been on here in so long. It's kind of weird because I have no idea if people still read my blog. If you do, I'm so sorry I went MIA for so long. I'm going to try to post regularly, but it depends on my schedule. Look forward so some more posts coming soon! Thank you so much for reading! Byeee!
