The difficulty of job hunting

At the moment, job hunting feels like a lose-lose situation.

After applying for what seems like a hundred jobs, I either get a reply saying that I am too qualified; a reply saying that I don’t have enough experience; or no reply at all.

I understand the fact that companies would rather employ somebody who knows what they are doing, therefore require less time being taught procedures, but that doesn’t help those who don’t quite have enough experience yet.

For all they know, I, like many others could extremely capable of doing the job and able to learn the procedures very quickly; but they don’t even give us a chance. Despite the fact I have a degree within that sector, they opt for somebody who has more experience than me within the industry to save them time and money teaching unexperienced recruits.

Where am I?

I feel so guilty. I feel as though I am constantly apologising lately for not posting, when previously I posted every single day. I am not abandoning my blog or forgetting about you all at all, I promise! It’s just since I have moved home from university, I seem to be constantly busy and by the time I get into bed (which is when I usually do my writing), I am far too tired so grab my book instead.

But I do have reasons for being so quiet the last couple of weeks…

Firstly, since moving home, I have literally had to do a huge spring clean in my bedroom. I have no idea how I have accumulated so much extra stuff in the three years I have been at university.. but I have. I got home, only to realise that I have no space for anything to go once I unpacked, so I have had to go through all of my old belongings and clothes to throw out in order to make more room…. This is a pretty difficult task when you have SO much stuff that you want to keep!

I am so excited right now as well, as I have been really busy with my mobile nail business! I have been running it for a couple of years now, but barely promoted it during the last year due to being so busy with university and life drama’s. But now that I have finished uni, I am able to focus all of my attention on my nail business, and have been able to offer customers something new! Continue reading

Help Raise Awareness and Support for Mental Health

I am a strong supporter of mental health, and I personally believe that it doesn’t get as much attention as it should. I decided to write this post in order to help raise awareness and help support those who suffer with a mental illness, have previously experienced it, or are in connection with somebody who experiences it. I am joined by three wonderful bloggers who have each wrote a short guest feature post on their experiences of mental health. Please help raise awareness and show your support!


Mental illness is very common – much more common than people think. Mental illness is just as serious, if not more serious, than other illnesses. The only difference is that you cannot see it.

450 million people worldwide are affected by mental health problems, whilst 1 in 4 people each year in Britain will be diagnosed with a mental health disorder. There are so many types of mental health disorders, which include:mental

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anorexia
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  • Phobias

These are just a few mental health problems, which millions of people are dealing with everyday. There are many different causes for developing these problems, and symptoms are different for everybody.

The problem with mental health disorders, is that many people who have them are too embarrassed or ashamed to tell others and seek professional support. Mental health problems are equally as important as any other physical health problem, and can lead to extremely dangerous consequences if it is hidden and ignored for too long.

I want to live in a world where mental health disorders are treated with the same precautions as physical disorders. You wouldn’t tell somebody who has a tumour that it’s because they are not strong enough, would you? No. The simple answer is no. People with illnesses are treated with care and respect, therefore mental disorders are no different. Continue reading
