and then it hit me …

So I haven’t written on here in a while and so maybe a lot of you won’t read this till later … I have been searching for a job in the communication and media field for MONTHS now … in Adelaide it is a highly sought after field which I have been unable to crack into … After a couple of work experience opportunities and some deep thought of what I wanted out of my life i began wondering “am I actively creating my path? or am I just walking down a path of obligation and safety?” … sitting there in that little office by myself I realised that instead of taking stock of my life and what I wanted out of it I had simply leant on a decision I had made 3 1/2 years ago as an 18-year-old…. with my back aching and my eyes straining at the computer screen I looked up a website for the Australian Institute of Fitness ( a reputedly good learning institution) and I called the number on the screen only to be stopped dead in my tracks as my boss walked in. In the middle of my conversation with a consultant on the other end I said “so you’ll pick me up at 4:45 then? thanks Dad” … phew … I then began to think about what would make me really happy and threw away the idea of eating cookie dough and watching movies as a professional the long-term effects weren’t very rewarding and the pay, non existent 🙂 … I then rang the institute again and after much thought and deliberation I decided to become a personal trainer … random I know but this doesn’t mean that I will abandon my degree but it means adding another facet to my life, another step toward self discovery and maybe a bit of toning on the way 🙂 … so there ya go … I’m starting classes in a weeks time … cannot wait!!
