Give this a read and like!

Everyone experiences brief dips in mood every now and then. After a breakup, losing a job, or finishing a particularly stressful week, it’s normal to want to lay on the couch all weekend and do nothing. Unfortunately, when feelings of sadness and despair don’t go away, depression becomes a mental health disorder — and it’s […]

Should I go back to studying…?

This is something I have been thinking about for a few weeks now…

Should I go back to studying?
Or should I stick to my work?

These are subjects I would definitely give up my full-time job for given the opportunity:

  • Film studies
  • Criminology
  • Psychology
  • Journalism

The downside of actually studying one of the above is that they might not be offered at part-time, or I’d have to have certain subjects and/or degrees and sit for the course as a post-grad student, something will probably never happen in this lifetime.

Another thing that worries me is the money. Books, resources, photocopies and such are very expensive, and if I have to leave my job, then I would have to start a new job as a part-timer and work in the weekends or evenings (if time is permitted).

I recently researched part-time courses offered in the evenings on the MCAST website (MCAST, for the foreigners, stands for Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology). I found some really interesting ones, but the one that aught my eye is Filmmaking: An Introduction. Why filmmaking though? Aren’t I an LSA? And haven’t I done a 10-week course for said job? Why yes I did, but I want to expand my knowledge of films further. It’s why I did the 10-week course and the Mental Health First Aid in the first place: to learn new things.

I am currently also learning a totally different language: German! I only knew very few words, but now I can say basic words and greetings! And can understand a little too! I am super proud of myself… the FIFTH language I am learning! I actually might do an exam for it when I’m ready.


So the rant is over, thank you for listening (well, for reading). This is a reminder to all of you to follow your dreams. Do NOT let anyone – parents, friends, strangers – tell you what you should or should not do with YOUR life.

AAAAAAAAND that’s it for me! Take care and spread peace XXXXX

#ClaireNotes – September 2017

No more Summer School *sobs*

With summer coming to an end comes the end of my summer work as a Child Support Worker (equivalent to my actual job as an LSA).  I would definitely do it again next year (it was my first year) as it was a LOT of fun. I was with little children – my forte – and they were the sweetest, cutest, most amazeball little ones! Let’s hope I see them again next year!

Driving yet?

Well, no. But I am halfway there! I passed my theory test! I was super excited when I did because, as opposed to before, I am in desperate need to drive, especially since I’m working a bit further than before (plus I owe my boyfriend for driving me around and picking me up for 18 months… he lives almost an hour away!).

 

Wedding ❤

Last Saturday I had the wedding my my GBF from my first job. I’ve known him for a few years so I remember him meeting his partner and how he knew he was The One. You can imagine how much I cried on the day 😉

“It’s what I want to do.”

I have probably said this sentence so many times in my life that I actually do not know if it – whatever ‘it’ could be – actually is what I want to do.

Hello everyone, sorry for the absence. I’ve been having some few thoughts on what I want to do with my life… is it too soon for a 23-year old to have an existential crisis?
