Tell All Tuesday


Tell All Tuesday is a linky party that I really wanted to take part in last time around but it was one of those things I forgot to put in my planner/calendar, so I completely forgot and by the time I remembered it was too late :( *sigh*

And to tell the truth... I also forgot today! Until I seen it pop up on my blogger feed over at Shoe Laces and Sweet Faces!!

So this week is all about hopes and dreams.

Mine is kind of a funny one. At the moment i'm so full of questions about myself, I don't know if I want to go on and pursue more things. I will also continue with my blog and my Tpt store. ALWAYS. They are in my heart of hearts that I think will be successful. On top of this I also do my invites business.

I have come to accept that my job just isn't well paid enough or suited for me. Myself and my partner want to emigrate to Canada within the next 3 years and I just don't think i'll be able to get a job there easily even with my experience, qualifications, training etc. so I am considering another career path. SHOCK HORROR!!!

So here are my dreams/ambitions/hopes which I am currently going through;

* Author
From a young age i've loved books. And I mean LOVED. When Harry Potter first came out I had the books for Christmas. I read the first four or five I think it was within a week. When the twilight saga came around, I read them all within a few days, same with Fifty Shades of Grey etc. I am a real book worm. I love them. I can remember growing up and saying I would write books one day. I always panic i'm not good enough, i'm not creative enough. But what if - one day, I just am? What if my doubts are fears are just that - doubts and fears? I have stumbled upon a few courses lately about becoming a children's author but I'm not sure if I would want to aim more for teen/young adult. 


* Lawyer
A few years back, while I was doing my child care diploma I had this funny time where I really wanted to be a lawyer. I was surrounded by people who made me feel I wouldn't be good enough. I wish I hadn't listened. Law was something I had my heart set on. I'm not sure if I would go back and do it all now, but I would love to give it a go.


* Accountant
This is the one I am considering the most at the moment... I think. It's something I really want to look into. It's one of the main careers for emigrating away with, I think I'd enjoy it. There's a possible opening for one for me to go to and learn all about it. 

* Fundraising Officer
So as a few of you may know, last year I really went into fundraising mode. In around 6/7 months I raised £17k. A vacancy has come up which is almost double my current wage to work in a local company that I have great interest in. I'm hoping to apply for it. I love fundraising, it's a new challenge. But again I'm unsure if it's something I can emigrate with!? Who knows!!

    1. You're too kind Erin, thank you. At the moment it's all being figured out. I think a part of me will always kind of stay within the autism side, i'm sure i'll end up included with autism somewhere along the line - even if it's volunteering in some sort or respite etc. i don't think i have the guts to be able to leave the children for good! Thanks for your fabulous comments - as always your comments and blog posts are such a delight to read!
