The Changing Life of JKS

Two years ago, I was very bored, in the early hours of a Sunday morning, and that's how thelifeofjks was created, a bored girl, who procrastinates too much, and now look at what I've achieved. I never thought that anyone but Tom would read it, so to see my stats constantly increasing, and bumping into old friends who read it is still bizarre. This blog has opened so many channels for me, and given me confidence that I might never have found before.

However, that's not to say that things haven't changed, I have personally, my life, my social circles, my blog. The photography from those early posts makes me cringe, and with my popular posts feature, I'm regularly reminded! My writing style has improved, and there is much more of a personality coming through my posts, well I hope! My knowledge of products, and PR etc., has improved greatly, meaning that I now am lucky enough to have amazing opportunities offered to me, and I hope this will continue.

I cannot tell you what is going to happen in the future, but I can reflect on what has changed, and the one thing I can tell you about the future? It will be great. Work for what you want, and one day you will achieve it, nobody but you is responsible for your own future.

Career - Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to teach, I am currently in my third year of University studying English, and from September I will be training to be an Secondary School English Teacher. I personally cannot wait to get in a classroom, and have an impact on the education of others. I am currently in the process of changing part time job, and for professional reasons I am not going to go into detail about why. I am a strong believer that if you are unhappy then you should do everything within your power to change that, which is exactly what I have done. I don't know if I will absolutely love my new job or not, but I know that I needed to get out of my current environment, I needed a change and a positive surrounding, which is what I've got.

Social -  I have never had many friends, people always laugh when I say that, but it's true. At times, it does upset me, and I feel so isolated and lonely, and then end up in a recurring circle of not having anyone to talk to about feeling isolated and lonely, but no more. Yes I have very few friends, but that means that I should cherish those I do have, I have two best friends who I have known for over 10 years, I have a best friend in Cardiff at University, a best friend on my uni course, and then the best blogging friends a girl could ask for. When people hear I have blogging friends they assume I only talk to them about blog stuff, but that couldn't be further from the truth, they've become the girls I meet for coffee and shopping regularly, the ones that will never tell me I don't need anymore makeup, and the ones who accept me for me. So yes, I may not have many friends, but the ones I've got are wonderful.

Relationship -  Thomas is still stuck with me, next month marks our four year anniversary. Someone needs to give him a bloody medal, but this year is going to be filled with making amazing memories like the last four have, starting off with a trip to London in April for my 21st Birthday.

Blog - This year, I want to get this site back to how I want it, I love beauty blogging don't get me wrong, but I want it to be so much more than that. I want it to reflect me, through fashion posts, wish lists, lifestyle posts and more. This year expect to see a much wider range of content, and I hope you enjoy it all!

So here is to a wonderful year, and embracing all of the changes it may bring!
