Life: Lists & Growing Up



At the moment I am really at a horrible crossroads. I have finished my gap year and was cruising along really quite nicely: Easy job, travel for a few months, tough rewarding job, travel. Nothing.
Here I am sat at the kitchen table of my parents house on a Monday morning in front of my laptop with no idea what on earth is going on in my life. The next date I have written in my diary is Christmas day. While this is happening I am seeing all my friends doing stuff on my facebook feed. I literally feel as though everything in my life is a bit of a mess at the moment... my lack of employment, my finances, my email account and even the ability to blog! Which is silly really, I have been very lucky this year :)

It is exactly this situation I just have to make shed loads of lists and somehow plough through them without eating too much food! My snazzy new organizer from paperchase sure helps out with that one :)

Are you a list maker?

  1. I am absolutely 100% a list maker! I understand what you're going through - I often find myself sitting at my desk at university, staring at the mountains of hw wondering what, oh what am I going to do with the rest of my life after graduation? What's my plan? Fairy godmother, where are you? lol I think lists are lifesavers. At least once it's down it's a map of what to do and where to go, even if it is just one day at a time :)

  3. First up - turn off facebook now! The most interesting and happiest people I know are not the one's posting on facebook every day. Re job, don't worry you'll find one and then you'll wish you had more time to blog :) I guess the question is what do you really want to do next? The world is your oyster... but it's up to you to make it happen. You can do it!

  4. I like to make lists and I like to avoid facebook. I'm sure people are pretending that their lives are awesome. Everyones life is just as boring as the next person :)

  5. Lists are always great. And it's fine to not have the rest of you life planned out... That's what I keep telling myself anyway ;)

  6. Yes! Lists, lists and more lists - even if you don't do all the stuff on your list, I think it helps just to have things written out properly. And like everyone else has said, there's absolutely nothing wrong with not having plans, you've plenty of time and you can pretty much do anything you like! :-) xx (ps. anyone on FB who feels the need to constantly boast about their life clearly doesn't actually have the life they want everyone to think they have, take it from me (being older and wiser and what-not ;-) ) xx

  7. I am definitely a list person! Sometimes I get so overwhelmed when I think about everything I have to get done so making a list and seeing it all down on paper really helps calm me a bit :)

  10. I am a list person too. I'm doing a PhD at the moment that inevitably ends up with lots of to do lists (I recently discovered bullet journalling- google it, it's the most awesome to do list way)! Love your organiser :) x

  11. Ah I feel the same exact way about my life right now - although I'm slightly older than you :) I think it's refreshing (even though scary) to have this kind of freedom in front of you, that you can decide that you want to make of it! And I just love lists so much - I'm better at making them than following them though...
