New Year, New Me? Nahh I’m pretty much the same!

So its been a while since I’ve written anything, and a lot has changed, but also at the same time there are a lot of similarities.
I’m back in Southampton, but not as a student this time, I’m working on a Get Hired scheme with my university and loving the work I’m doing. This leaves me with a slight concern regarding my future.

I enjoy this job a lot, for those who don’t know I’ve just got a new job with my university assisting on a module that I had the pleasure of taking while in attendance at Solent. It’s called the Coaching Innovation Project (CIP) which allows students during their second and third year to develop and deliver an initiative that addresses a need of the community, be it; teenage pregnancy, obesity, school transitions or a variety of other issues facing communities in Southampton. It was one of the biggest learning curves I’ve experienced to date and I’m really appreciative of the opportunity to have been a part of such an inspirational module.

Let me stop there otherwise I won’t ever write what I came here to say! Haha!

Anyway, I’ve worked in a lot of different places and done a variety of different jobs. Receptionist, Dancer, Sports coach, Sales advisor, Bar tender, the list goes on. But within none of these jobs did I feel a sense of complete satisfaction and contentment. I love what I’m doing because I’m passionate about the CIP, I believe more Universities should have modules like this within their sports courses. Because of my passion I happily get on with my job, no complaints. It’s been two weeks and I enjoy what I do.
What I wonder is, is there a job out there that can fill me with this same contentment or will I finish this role in May and be left to go back into work I don’t enjoy and dread waking up for in the mornings?

I don’t want that for myself. Once you try the better life looking back seems very unappealing, this is how I feel about the job market at the moment. My search is on. I have no idea where it will take me and honestly don’t really know what the next step in my career will be but for now I’m going to enjoy my time in this role and savour the happiness I feel when I wake up in the morning.

I will be trying to write more regular updates so keep your eyes peeled. I’m really excited about this change in career and want to share as much about the CIPs as you care to read (:

  1. Really great post here, and I definitely feel the same – I’m terrified of leaving university and working in a job that I just can’t stand until I’m old enough to retire! Can’t wait to read more of your posts xxx
