We’ve just gone into a new decade. It’s 2020. It has been a while since I last blogged, and things have definitely changed quite a bit in the meantime, so I thought it was time I caught up with you again and let you in on the news. In August I wrote a post I called “Focus on me”. You can read that here. In the post I might have touched upon a few of the same points that I will here, but from a slightly different point of view. I had just finished my last year at business school, had moved back home and enrolled in a design program at another university. It felt like the right choice at the time. The gist of the post however, was that this (school) year was about me. Doing what I needed to be OK.
The program turned out to be quite far off what I had imagined, and with travelling into the city for work every other day, life again got the better of me. So, when I saw an opening for a job as cabin crew in September, I applied without thinking twice. I grew up with a father who was a pilot, but he retired years ago now. When I began my bachelors I moved away from that lifestyle that I loved and grew up with. As a little girl, I dreamed of being a flight attendant and pursuing my creative side in my free time. I got a place on the course that started in January and decided to end my studies after the autumn semester.
It has been an intense three weeks of courses, and another intense week of flying after that. I don’t think I’ve ever been as tired as I am now before, but I also feel a lot happier than I have in ages. I have my release flight tomorrow, and if all goes well I’m “on my own” after that. This absolutely feels like a wonderful place to work, and the right choice for me. I’m hoping it stays that way. Not only does the change of path mean I get to work in a branch I love, but it also means that when I go home I don’t bring a task list with me. For the first time in years, my free time is mine, and not locked up in reading for exams. It means I have time for friends and family, to read books, and travel the way I used to when I was little. I also hope that this means I have more spare time and the chance to create interesting content for my socials. I love snapping photos of what inspires me and sharing my thoughts with you.
