Wow, it’s been a while hasn’t it? My last post was at the beginning of November I think. I’m sorry it’s been so long. There’s been quite big changes in my life recently.
So, where do I start? Well… I guess the biggest change in my life is the fact that I am now working! Yes! I did it! I manage to find and secure a job! It’s perfect for me too as it’s an admin role. I’m working in a school office. I’m going to be honest, I didn’t quite realise how challenging it would be. It’s made me appreciate even more all the staff who worked in the school offices in the schools and college that I have attended as a student.
I’ve completed 3 and a half weeks there (I’m currently off for the Christmas holidays). All the staff I work with are lovely and I feel like I have made some friends already! (I was invited to the Christmas work do within a couple of weeks of being there too!). And all the children are really sweet! I thoroughly enjoy it there!
It is an apprenticeship, so I do have coursework to do as well as what I’m required to do within the job role but I don’t mind that. I like keeping busy. I like having something to do. I know what it’s like to have absolutely nothing to do, nothing to go out the house for, and it’s horrible. I prefer doing things and having challenges!
Ahh! I’m working! Honestly, I thought I’d never find something. I thought no one would want me to work for them. I was beginning to lose hope. And then this job came up and they accepted me. (They know about my past and my health difficulties and they are fully supportive of it all!)
So yeah, that’s the main reason why I haven’t updated this blog recently haha … I’ve been settling in to my new job!!
Another change that I’ve noticed recently, is that I’m more happier in myself. Like, I’ve not had as many low moments/days as I used to have. I have the odd moment but nothing like I’ve had before. I’m so much happier!!
I think it’s because I finally feel like I’m moving on with my life. I’m now catching up with everyone else my age. I’m not the Katie whose behind everyone else. I’m not the Katie with nothing to do. I’m not the Katie stuck in hospital constantly. I’m not the Katie with a condition that limits her. Ive achieved so much this year. A lot of things, a few years ago, I never thought I’d be able to do.
I’m just Katie. Yes I’m unique, but I’m also just like many. I’m living a “normal” life (by that I mean I have a job, I’m doing driving lessons etc) and I’ve still got my whole life ahead of me.
There is something else that’s happened that I would say is quite a big change in my life…. but I’d rather keep that under wraps for now … but stay tuned 😉
Oh and I hope you have had a lovely Christmas! I sure did ☺️
Alright, that’s it for now.
I want to try and do a sum up of 2018 thing for my next post before the end of this year, but can’t say for certain if that will happen. If not, have a great end of 2018 and start of 2019!
All the best,
