Nice to meet you

Hi there, and welcome!

This is long overdue, so here I am introducing myself a tiny bit. I am a 20-something year old who has just recently graduated in Psychology and now is completely lost in life. I do enjoy studying and so I believe I will go back for more, just need to decide which specific part I want to focus before I do just that. I currently work in the City Council in Human Resources, which has more to do with Psychology than it seems. But not enough, and so that with many more reasons is why I am taking a bold move and leaving at the end of April. Which is scary, as I do not have another job lined up but I know if I don’t kick myself and sit there with my contract still valid I will get comfortable. And I am afraid to settle. So I will try not to.

I live with my boyfriend of almost 4 years now (how do we put up with each other for so long I do not know) and 2 little bengal kittens (the older one is not that little, especially when he decides to walk on your belly) even though I am a dog lover at heart. I grew up with a pup that has sadly passed away at the age of 15, after a joyful and fun life. I do love my kittens so much, I am just generally in love with animals. We live at the heart of Edinburgh, extremely beautiful city. But the weather is depressing, so it’s easy to get moody. I have suffered and still deal with my Generalised Anxiety disorder. I am open about it, but I feel that maybe not enough. And so I created this blog where I want to include my story, thoughts, and tips on mental health at the young age. That and thoughts on my hobbies, which at the moment mostly include exploring the make up industry, cooking and reading.

I am excited to get to know all you lovely people and hopefully be of some use to you. I will try and keep a balance here between quite difficult posts and some relaxing reads.

If you ever feel like you need to talk to someone, I am always here. And if you ever feel like you want me to write about something, or write with you – just let me know, we’ll think of something!Saturday on wednesday

Hey there! Welcome to my Everything Blog. You know those lovely organised people who have a niche? Well that's not me, my blog is just like my mind, jumping from one thought to another. Sorry (but not too sorry). I have a degree in Psychology and am a proud owner of two amazing kittens Zeus and Momo, although thoroughly a dog person! I love cooking, I surely love eating, reading and exploring. I have created this blog with hope that I can lighten up the mid-week Wednesday with some Saturday chill vibes. Hopefully you enjoy your Saturdays On Wednesdays as much as I enjoy mine. With Love, G xoxo

  1. I can really relate to your story. I studied Civil Engineering and after working a bit when I graduated I just wanted out! I quit my job at the end of 2015 and I’ve been home trying to figure out what the actual heck to do with my life :/ I love studying and I yearn to go back to university but I don’t want to do something I’m not 100% sure about. I’ve been doing online courses and keeping busy, testing the waters in other fields to see what I would like to do with the rest of my life.

    I love your blog – just followed 🙂

  3. Wonderful to meet you! Blogging is so much fun. I get to meet so many awesome people from all over! Can’t wait to peruse your blog. I’m a dog person too, but somehow ended up with a few kitties! Though, I do have dogs as well! The number isn’t balanced, dogs vs. cats, but all in all there are a lot of adventures to be had around here with them all! Best wishes to you in all you do! Peace, Koko:)

      1. Hahahah….I actually came across another. Found the little one in a box outside a store. He’s on my instagram if you want to see him. Gotta love dogs, but those cats just sneak into your heart somehow! 🙂

  4. Bold move on the resignation. So what sort of work have you switched to? Studying psychology must be amazing! I wished that I majored something more refined like psychology. Sadly, maths was my stronger suit. I was too scared to fail, so I used to only take on maths orientated majors when I was given a chance.

    1. I went to work in the University, it’s temporary as I am covering a maternity leave. Good experience though.
      Studying it was fascinating, however since it’s such a broad subject it doesn’t give you the pleasure of clear path afterwards. True, you can apply it pretty much everywhere, but that doesn’t make it easier to decide where to go! Psychology has loads of math in it, specifically statistics. It was, not even exagarating, 50% stats and 50% psychology. The whole course was much different than I expected, not in a bad way though. I think there is a missundersatnding about Psychology as science in the world, as a big part of the population only think of psychology as a counselling, which is a teeny tiny part of it. Most of it is research. Just like any other science. But yeah, it was interesting haha Definitely makes your mind more critical towards everything hah
