Lifes Circumstances. I thought my life would be differant.

Standard

I know life isn’t a race but the last year or so I have been struggling with the knowledge that I graduated in 2006 (I will be 25 next month) and I haven’t done anything since I left school. Last year I quit my full time maccas job to move to Queensland (Not sure how much longer I could have stayed there anyway due to another trouble maker that was employed), in the hope of finding full time work here and have a change from the small town I lived in. I am currently working a casual position at Maccas but an average of 9 hours a week doesn’t really make it worth my while. My current lease ends at the start of April and unless a full time job or a job I really want comes up, I will probably head back to Victoria.

This is my 7th year out of school and I haven’t got anything to show for it. No job I really enjoy, no great savings account, no overseas holidays or any great life experiences. Although I don’t blame others for this, other people to an extent do play a part in how our lives has turn out. Like everyone I guess, I am a victim of ideas, circumstance and the economy. None the less we always learn from past experience.

I want to be able to buy a house and travel over seas, and not struggle for money when I am older. (Luckily I am of that generation that has had a superannuation account since my first job). Will any of this be possible in todays economy? Who knows. It’s not surprising many of gen Y still live at home with their parents.

Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself lucky that I have a roof over my head, food in the cupboard, access to doctors and family that have done SO much for me. Just, as a kid I always thought my life would be more than living week to week. Sometimes even struggling to do that. Although I’m not depressed, I hope that some point in the very near future I find something to make life more enjoyable and worthwhile. But a HUGE thankyou to my family and friends who continue to support me and make me laugh. If nothing else, at least I have them. ❤

Is anyone else floating through life in the same boat?

Sharing a little…

Standard

Hey all. How are we? Just thought I would share a little more of my life.
This is Kelly. We met while working at McDonalds in little old Bairnsdale, Victoria. It was one of those friendships where you just instantly get along and would do just about anything for each other. We became so close we now consider ourselves as sisters. She moved to Queensland a while back and had her little girl, (My God Daughter and niece) Hayley. I wanted a change from Bairnsdale and moved up here last year.

The first two photos were taken at Coomera park. This bottom one is what I came home to after work yesterday.
