A Little Life Update


So yesterday I broke up for summer. Halle-freaking-lujah! Yes the luxury of working in a school. Everyone was saying that this last term is a killer and I seriously brushed it off and thought it couldn't be that bad, as long as I have the sun then any playground duties and outside duties at after school club will get me through the 7 and a half week period. But my word. They have been tough, you can tell everyone is tired. Even the children and as the weeks have crept closer and closer I have been losing my patients just a little bit, however I have kept my cool and got through it. My little corner of the internet really has taken a back seat. This is mostly due to absolutely exhaustion at the end of the day (I will explain more). I literally come home, have dinner and a shower and climb into bed. If anyone is thinking about working with children in a school or anywhere else because "it'll be piss easy" trust me it's not. But that doesn't mean I love working with them because I sure as hell do. I am so grateful that although I didn't choose to persue a career as a teacher (see why here) Also noted that I seem to right life update posts every July. I have still been given the opportunity to teach at the school I work with, just without all the added paper work as well as acting like a big kid myself, children really are great.
Like I stated above I haven't been the best with my little blog due to exhaustion. Some may call it sheer laziness. However for me its been getting little out of had. To the point where when teaching children in the afternoon, instead of sitting at the table with them I have had to stand and rock from foot to foot as if I sit down I fall asleep, I can't keep my eyes open, no matter how hard I fight and I did actually nod off once. Now for someone that get's enough sleep, has started drink at least 2-3 litres of water a day and has no stresses in life at the moment it did feel a little concerning. So I took myself to the doctors for a blood test. I got no reply, which they said means nothing will be wrong if I don't get a text. However for me that wasn't a good sign. It meant I was no closer to finding out why I was becoming exhausted early in the afternoon. So I took myself to the doctors website and low and behold I can actually view all of my records. I scrolled through and it mentions something about thyroid and how I should speak to a doctor. Although I haven't made contact yet, due to the next 2 weeks being busy and me also heading to Newquay for a week of surfing it is on the top of my list to do when I get back. It'll be interesting to see if the doctors have anything to say and many people have actually mentioned that I should try taking B12 tablets which I am looking into so that I will keep you posted on. I feel this paragraph was a total anti-climax.. oops!
Ok, so now that the summer holidays have hit. It's full steam ahead with my blog. Yes I know I can't just do it in the summer and slow down because it doesn't work like that. But I have given myself the goal that is - this time next year I will be quitting my school job and becoming a full time influencer. It is out their now in the world. Everyone knows my goal and so it will happen. It's all pretty exciting. I'm going to my first event tomorrow and I am so excited to be meeting some gorgeous girls I have been speaking to for a while on instagram and I feel that is the start of everything that is about to happen. Not only am I doing that but I have set up a Youtube account. I just feel it is the next big step. I have been hearing bloggers saying that blogging is dying out. Which breaks my heart. But with Instagram being a platform that brands are constantly wanting content for it can become tricky. Youtube is also something so easily to digest. I tend to watch youtube every morning and evening as I can do other things while it's on. I love the whole idea of videography in vlogs and things to and I also dipped my toes in with IGTV and really enjoyed. That is another platform I want to be using as I think it is really going to take off. So this summer is all about setting up a Youtube, IGTV and continuing my blog and instagram so that when summer ends I can keep up with them and within the year be able to do something I love full time. I am planning on uploading to Youtube twice a week - Wednesday and Sunday and same goes for my blog, I'll be trying to upload on the same days so there will be plenty of content for you to get your teeth into. Not to mention how well we're all going to get to know each other as I want to be as honest and as open as possible and really be talking about all sorts of topics. It's a dream I can feel coming true so keep watching, I am super excited for this journey.

Those are the three big updates for now. Who knows instead of a yearly update I might make a three month thing. We will just have to see if the life of pagesfrombeth becomes interesting enough. I feel good things coming guys.
