Your questions answered…

You might remember that a few weeks ago I asked you to send me any questions you had about me that you wanted me to answer.  Well, I’ve recorded the answers to your questions in a vlog.


In this vlog I talk about:

– Optimism versus pessimism

– Dream jobs

– Moving to the country

– Negative comments on my outfits

– International travel

– What kind of animal I’d like to be as opposed to the kind of animal that I’m actually like.

I hope you enjoy it.

Also, if you have any more questions that you’d like me to answer feel free to get in touch.  I might do another of these videos in the future if I get enough questions, so get asking!


  1. Two degrees?! Wow!!!! Great vlog- I’ve finally been able to catch up with all your posts!
    You haven’t failed by going back to your hometown! You made the adult choice to move closer to your partner and family, yes you’re further away from friends, but being close to family, well to me, is so important! And with saving more money on a month to month basis it should be able to give you the money you need eventually to be able to visit your friends pursue more hobbies and buy more of the little nik naks you love!!! Chin up 😀 x

    • Thanks so much for this comment. Deep down, I know that I haven’t failed. Moving back to my hometown was the right choice for me, and it has improved so many areas of my life. Sometimes though, it’s hard for me to see the things that are going well when I’m so focussed on what’s going wrong. You’re totally right though, living close to my family is something that is really important to me. I missed them so much when I was living in the city, and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to spend so much time with them now.

  2. Please don’t ever feel like you’re a ‘failure’ for moving back to the country or ‘home’ – just watching this tells me so much about how sucessful you are! How many people have a degree in law AND psychology?? and you bought a house! Those two things right there are huuuuge! You should feel so proud of yourself! 🙂
    Also- you’re young. I know it sucks being in a job that isn’t your ideal job, but my husband didn’t start his career until he was 36- he went back to school and got his real estate license. So anything is really possible, and just take your time and enjoy all the good things. Easier said than done, I know, but just always remember you’re awesome.
    and if you do ever make it to Canada, come visit Toronto! 🙂

    • Thanks so much for this comment. In reality, I know how much I’ve achieved, and that moving back home was totally the right thing to do. It doesn’t make me a failure, but sometimes it’s hard to shake those ideas that I held for so many years. The mind can be so resistant to changing the way it thinks, y’know? A lot of the time I feel really pleased with the choices I’ve made and I am able to focus on the things that I’ve accomplished.
      As for my job, I tell myself every day that it takes time for things to get going, and that it might be ages before I begin to see my dream career emerging. I’m just really impatient and a total perfectionist, so I hate staying in an ‘imperfect’ situation for any longer than I have to. I am trying to learn to be at peace with the stage I’m at, and just enjoy things as they unfurl.
      I will totally get to Toronto someday, no doubt about it.

  3. Ugh I know the feeling of frustration when something’s not lifting off and you have to work in between because.. well.. we need the money! Work is demanding so much right now so blogging is becoming harder and harder -_- not to mention the cost of make-up school. Ugh.

    • I’m so sorry that you’re going through that feeling of frustration and stagnation. I can totally relate. I wish that I had some advice for getting through it, but I’m struggling to deal myself! I think the only way is to put your head down and just keep going, as well as focussing on anything along the way that makes you smile. Fingers crossed we’ll both get to where we want to be.

      • Yeah fingers crossed, at least it feels good that you’re going through the same thing. Somehow not being alone in this frustration feels a lot better! I’ll think of that when grinding teeth at work lol!
        Btw I wish I had an Aussie accent. 😛
        What is your day job if I may ask?

      • I know what you mean. I have a couple of friends who work terrible day jobs, and can empathise with my feelings of frustration. It really does help to know that you’re not alone. I work as a sales assistant in a shop.

        I’ve never, ever heard anyone say that they want an Aussie accent! I don’t think it’s exactly the sexiest accent around, but I’m glad you like it. 😀

      • Hahah well there you go, I have a friend that loves communitychannel’s accent as well so maybe it’s a Belgium thing lol!

        And exactly, I have one friend I talk to as well that’s a sales assistant. The crap he gets over him, hohoho.

      • Oh yeah, sales assistants really cop it. Well, really anyone who works in the customer service industry does.
        I’ve actually thought about writing a post about annoying customers, but I don’t want my work to see it and give me the sack!
