Adjusting to changes
I find myself lingering in a life transional phase right now. A month ago I knew about my forthcoming move to Scotland. This month I’m going to quit my main job and start an internship as an archivist [
it was about time]. I honestly can’t wait to start working for what I’ve been trained to do + tbh I was growing tired of working in an environment that wasn’t exactly what I’d been expecting for my future. I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me and I’m proud of what I’ve done as I still believe it was the right thing to do at that time – simply, I’m now ready to move on.
Surely it won’t be automatic to adjust to a new weekly pattern – I’ll finally free myself from the much-hated commuter life [which is good], but I’ll switch from a 3 days main job to a 5 days main job, which means I’ll have only evenings and the weekend to attend my secondo job tasks AND everything else [which is not that good]. Well, I believe that grown-ups’ life is mainly about learning how to manage that scarce resource that is time, and this surely won’t be neither the first nor the last time.
I’m not much of a night person so I can see coming close many trials and errors. But still, the challenge tickles me.
I have some projects in storage for the upcoming months, mainly good habits I’ve tried to implement and that have turn out with mixed results; I’ll do my best to be good and try not to do everything all at once, as I know this is the most effective strategy for failure. I’ll strive to focus on just one/maximum two main goals at a time without putting anything else on the plate. I’ll blog about this later on.
For now, I revel in the thoughts of all the things that I’ve missed doing during these very longs months like
- having dinner at 6.30 pm
- watching dramas/tv series every night before bedtime
- having a regular yoga routine
- taking photos around the city
- grabbing an ice cream downtown before coming home or
- popping in my favourite bookshop downtown before coming home or
- stopping at my favourite coofee shop downtown to study languages before coming home or
- popping over at my favourite bakery downtown to read my current novel before going home
A lot of books and food are involved in here. Oh well.
