Ordinarily I hope I’ll get to the point of writing a post and knowing exactly what to say and how it should be worded so that I don’t look like a complete newbie (which of course I am). But now we have that awkward opening part out-of-the-way I guess I should introduce myself and say hi I’m Liam. Liam Thompson. A pretty not so chill teen from lets say the West Midlands in the UK (for all those international readers obv), at the moment I’m currently an accounts apprentice at a small-ish property business which you could say is going well, but we’ll get to that part later on I’m sure. Just to cut short anymore boring brief background information about myself I’ve decided to start this blog in order to voice my own opinions and express myself a little more, because I kind of feel that it will help me through (like every other blogger before me) and hopefully… eventually I will inspire others to do the same!
As I said before ‘not so chill’ the reasoning being because there are actually so many little small problems, call them OCD’s, which worry me and as a guy it isn’t really expressed or spoken about on any kind of scale. So to do this you could say is a pretty big step for man and mankind. I also apologise in advance for my jumpy, sometimes broken writing skills; English was never my strong point at school and this probably outlines why but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway (rebel). But back to the OCD’s yes I have problems but then again so does everyone else so why should I be any different? Why should this not just be a re-iteration of everything that has been said before? Why can I not just express how I feel and then take it from there? In answer to all those questions I guess I just want to voice an opinion without being completely shot down for feeling that way, being different is good so why can that not just be accepted?
Moving on… (was that too fast?)
Back to the day job (for now)… So as I previously said I’m an accounts apprentice at a small property management firm, which is going pretty well at the moment but the reason why I’m here is kind of a long story because originally this was never where I had set out to be neither is it somewhere that I’d like to spend the rest of my days, it’s just for the now and not the forever (pretty sure that’s a quote from somewhere). To start off this time in 2015 I was all ready to embark on my adventure to university studying marketing because that seemed like the legitimate thing to do, but in all honesty it lasted about 7 weeks and then after a trip to Blackpool which resulted in me missing a week of uni I was definitely not interested in carrying this on any longer. And so the obvious thing to do was quit and find something else that perhaps wasn’t going to cost me nearly as much money or waste my time like university was for me. Of course I understand everyone is completely individual and will have their own views on this, but this was my choice and it’s now the thing that makes me happy, knowing that I actually made the right decision. Never before had I been a quitter or someone who would give up so easily but there was just no momentum, sure fresher’s weeks was ok and there weren’t that many contact hours but this was just not for me!
To finish this post up I’m going to conclude by saying that I plan to get something else up this time next week so Sunday 25th September is in my (metaphorical) diary and I promise I won’t quit this time. But thank you if you read this and thought, well that was bearable, maybe you’ll put up with me for just one more post. Who knows where we’ll end up at the end of this at least we could metaphorically have each others backs!
It’s all metaphorical, I mean life is just one huge metaphor right?
