“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”
– Paulo Coelho

Hey everyone, sorry it’s been a little quiet around here lately! But as the above quote suggests, the universe works in strange ways. Do you ever find that things always seem to happen in one go? You can have months of downtime and suddenly BOOM, everything happens at once. It seems to be working that way for me at the moment.
At the start of April, I went on my much anticipated, lifelong dream trip to Italy to see Rome, and it was amazing!! (Post coming soon). Then the week that I got back, I had to take and somehow managed to pass my driving test. Shortly after, an opportunity to go to Germany for three days to visit the Hannover business fair came up. (Not that interesting for a lay person like me, but still a cool experience, and it meant I could tick another country off my list!)
Then the next day after I got back, I spotted a car on Autotrader and went to go and see it. I bought it and then had to sort out all the legal stuff. Then, because I was officially on the road, I was able to re-contact some places I had gone to for job interviews (in which previously it had turned out I couldn’t make the hours because of public transport). The next day, one of them contacted me and I was called in for a trial shift at the weekend, and this week I have my first two official days on the job in the hotel industry. Phew! Mind boggling, scary and exciting stuff! Lots of unchartered waters, meeting new people and learning new things. April and May have turned out to be pretty crazy, huh? I’m still processing.
Do you ever seem to find that things happen all at once? How has May been going for you so far?
