What Am I Doing With My Life..?

Sunday, 20 August 2017


Hello Lovelies!

I am currently laying in bed with a decaf cup of tea, at 10pm writing this impromptu post. This week so many amazing people received their exam results and it has got me thinking, what am I actually doing with my life?

So a little background about where I am currently at with my career, or should I say lack there of and how I got myself in to this situation. So in 2008 I started secondary school as the uncool chubby kid, my first year and a bit I did okay and my behaviour was relatively okay too. However my behaviour started to change quickly for the worse. I got involved with the wrong crowd (yep, that cliche) and I turned into someone I'm really not, I became the gobby loudmouth with a bad attitude who had basically no respect for anyone or myself. That continued pretty much through out my entire secondary school life. A managed move and a couple years down the line I find myself at 16 and doing my GCSEs, my dad had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and I started to buck up my ideas. I changed, I had no choice but to dramatically change. I didn't do the best in my GCSESs I missed a couple of exams due to having to care for my dad. As you can probably guess my results weren't great.

I managed to get into college and I studied level 2 business, I was actually one of three to pass which was a big deal for me. I then didn't really do anything with it. I am now working as a retail supervisor, the pay is terrible and to be honest it is something I am not interested in. Growing up I always had huge dreams and aspirations which amounted to nothing, thankfully I am only 20 so I have time to turn my life and career around.


Now, onto the real reason for this post, I have been considering and looking into some online courses. As a blogger I am obviously very interested in social media and all that goes along with it hence why I am looking at social media management and digital marketing as career choices. I'll be 100% frank with you, I don't have a clue where to start but I am certain it is something I want to achieve. I am honestly so unhappy with how my life has turned out, don't get me wrong I have an amazing family, boyfriend; bestie, house etc which I am thankful for...but something is missing. I am sick of letting my life fly by and essentially amounting to nothing. So many people I went to school with have started amazing careers and are doing incredibly well for themselves and it gets me thinking, what have I achieved? What have I got to show for all those years in education? A name badge reading 'Chloe, Sales Supervisor' it doesn't seem too appealing to me. Don't get me wrong I am proud of my job and I enjoy it but I think thats simply down to the insanely hilarious, lovely people I work with.

It is time for me to grab life by the balls, jump in head first and get that career I desperately want and need. It's just figuring out where to start.

Apologies for this extremely rambled, all over the place post but it is something I needed to get off my chest. Do any of you have any advice for me or changes you want to make in your life? Let me know in a comment below or tweet me @chloedentonxo.

  3. I understand this feeling! It can be quite overwhelming... I felt like that last year and I stood up. I turned my life around and I am now doing something I love. It was not easy but I have absolutely no regrets! x
