Life Updates, and Hello Spring!

Hi, I’m back! Don’t worry, I didn’t leave.

Firstly, I’d like to apologise for going completely MIA. August and September have been absolutely crazy.

“Kristy, that’s no excuse.”

I knoooowww, but I’m so disorganised! Seriously, my life is a continuous blooper reel.

Ok. So let me fill you in.

After nearly three years, I resigned from my job. Yes, don’t worry, I got another one! I was so pumped to leave. I have my reasons for leaving, but the number one issue I had was that I was turned down for a promotion. For no good reason.

Now I was upset at first, because honestly, I thought I deserved it. But then I remembered that I wasn’t the first one at the company that had just been rejected for a promotion. What I forgot was that it was a trend in the office – MANY of my work colleagues had applied for more senior positions, only to be tossed aside for some outsider. Shame on me for thinking I’d be different. It wasn’t going to happen.

So, I found a better job and left.

Then I started that new job a week later. Oh, how quickly I forgot what it was like to be the new person! The very overwhelming first day – it doesn’t matter how many notes you take and how often you try to repeat people’s names, it’s exhausting. Even if it’s the same things you’re doing, it’s still overwhelming. But in my case, the job was very different to what I did previously. Not to mention I only had four days to learn the job from the person I was taking over from. I felt like I was drowning. I still feel like that. But, you either sink or swim. And I’m a swimmer.

So, that’s where I’ve been. Other than that, not much has changed. But I feel like it’s time for a change.

So from now on, you’ll still see a lot of makeup posts. But you’ll also start to see posts about a lot of other things that I enjoy, like travel and photography. There will also be some posts on my quest for better health. I’ve just started personal training, and I’m going to blog about my journey.

So thanks for reading, and I hope you’ll come back and read my blog posts that are on the way!
