So today was the day that I finally started my new job! Ok, it was a 2 and a half hour induction and tour of the factory, but I still get paid for it, so I guess it counts right? I start properly on Monday at 6am! I am quite excited even though to start with I was told it would be tedious doing the same thing day in day out until I get used to it and am able to tackle more things. Its something I think the thing is, you can’t be afraid to start from the bottom and work hard! I also spoke about working in the test kitchen coming up with new recipes and trying new things, as well as being trained technically to finish gateaus and cakes. I think there are many career opportunities and progression for such an entry level job. However, I am going to have to work and won’t automatically get these opportunities because I am a graduate… you can’t think like that especially in today’s market.
In terms of careers I have no clue what I want to do in the future, this will do for now and if the right thing comes along then great. That doesn’t mean I am not going to try, you have to but, its easier to get a job when you already have one. I am really enjoying this writing malarkey even if I am really bad at it. I have some ideas I would like to write about but, don’t want to just splurge out random posts (ok I am doing it right now). I will probably get round to it eventually. I know its not realistic but I want to have a fun career, that I am passionate about, so I can really give it my all. I guess we all do.
Sorry guys for being missing the past week! I have been having some well deserved chill out time before I start my first proper full time job. After spending some amazing time with friends and the boyfriend in my University town, I am back to the countryside, back to the real world. Tomorrow I have my induction ready to start first thing on Monday at 6am!!!! Ouch!!! Its going to hurt! I am really enjoying writing at the moment, and I really do apologise for my bad grammar etc, I hope there is SOME improvement. I have only just realised you can write your own articles on BuzzFeed so I am giving that a go. Feel free to have a look http://www.buzzfeed.com/lcmrwales its very basic but thought it would be a good supplement to this blog. Also, please look at the most wonderful video in the world of Teddy Bear the Porcupine, I promise it will make your day!
After being promised in 2013 that for my 20th Birthday I could have my car put through the MOT ready for me to drive it I have finally cashed in my present! I had been saving for tax and insurance and waiting to get a job so I could afford to run it! The time came for me to have a job…and the car was still sat there relying on my parents and loving boyfriend to drive me round. But now with this new job my car having been SORN and sat in the drive for over a year, passed its MOT!!! Hooray! Only £250 to get it on the road, much cheaper than buying a new car, and I know when its running it is reliable and efficient (touch wood). As of midnight tonight I am insured on my little ford fiesta, (named Baby after the song “Go baby, Go baby, Go!” and the fact it was the same colour and similar shape to my Dad’s old Range Rover) and tomorrow I will go to the Post Office and get the tax sorted! I am so excited! On Wednesday, I get to drive to my University town to spend a chill out week with the boyfriend before I start my job, and I get to drive one of my best friends there too! OMG! I am so excited! Can you tell? Life is good right now (touch wood) especially after the disaster of University, things do look up. Onwards and upwards!
