I've not been feeling inspired over the last couple of weeks, I know a lot of people have said been feeling the same, at least I know I'm not alone. I don't feel I'm getting anywhere, I get up not wanting to do anything productive or anything that can help me in the long term for whatever reason, and I know it's not just my natural laziness rearing its ugly head, it's that I haven't really thought of any obvious goals I want to achieve.

This week has been my reading week off uni, but it's gone so fast I don't feel I've done anything worthwhile, mainly because I still haven't found a part-time job to tide me over until I graduate, which is frustrating as it's not like I haven't been trying. Places seem more interested in hiring people fresh out of high school with no idea of how to treat customers, how to deal with difficult situations and working in retail in general. No disrespect if you have a part-time job straight from high school, you're lucky to have it, it's just irritating when you have over three years experience working under a busy, harsh Customer Services environment. Just sucks that my hard work isn't wanted anywhere, and I mean

But onto happier things, I'm going to post my Friday Favourites each week in order to keep my blog rolling. Probably not the best time to start it as I begin my work placement next Friday for ten weeks, but I'll be doing my best to keep up! It'll include photos, quotes, things I've seen and done over the past week that have made me smile.
Nothing negative, just positive things!

I have a couple for this week but I'll keep it short an sweet for you!

Jack's just had some of the best news in the world, I'm not sure if I can talk about it yet, but when I do I'll be rambling on for a good while! I'm so proud of him, he's been working really hard towards his goals and future, and knows exactly what he wants to achieve in life. He's a really strong person and although he doesn't always know it, he motivates me to better myself and work towards my own goals, no matter how small they are.
All his hard work is going to pay off this year, I'm so proud and happy for him as it's what he deserves ^__^

Since I got my new phone I've hardly put it down. It's weird to get used to as it's a square, but I love it. I've been playing with the camera which as above it's pretty good, I need to fiddle with the settings though. I'll post a photo of it later in the week.

This Summer is going to be so good, I can't wait!
Booking my place on the girls holiday in Turkey for June later this week, so excited!
I've got quite a lot lined up - finish uni in May, Cornwall with Jack in early June, Turkey with the girls late June, France & Barcelona with the family.
Hopefully fit my work placement in there somewhere, along with bbq's, beach days, picnics and staying out late :)

Congrats if you got this far, I didn't realise how much I rambled and ranted on at the start, I'll be posting more positive things once I get back into the swing of it all :)
