Life | Constant Change

I'm starting to realise that change is part and parcel of life in your 20's. People constantly come and go, circumstances change, your job changes, your friends change, your location can change. This past year I feel like I have had about 4 different realities at different times. Just when I'm starting to get used to how my life is and I am beginning to enjoy it more something changes and turns things on it's head.

For the last couple of weeks I've been working in a school for a couple of hours a week. It was tough at first trying to get in to the swing of things. Learning how to manage my time again. Getting to know the students I have and so on. It's only now that I feel like I've settled in and got things under control. I'm actually really enjoying it. I'm loving the actual work as well as the fun and chats in the staffroom. It's such a great atmosphere with so many lovely people. However, in two weeks my time there will be up and I will be back to being unemployed. I'll really miss keeping busy and interacting with people every day. It sucks that the lifestyle that I have just become accustomed to will have to change yet again.

Also, during my time in school I became really good friends with another young guy who was doing his teaching practice there. We both had a lot of time off so we spent it together in the staffroom chatting about everything and anything and laughing at funny YouTube videos. He was always the one I would run to when a student had just pushed my buttons and he would reassure me by telling me the said student is also a problem for him. I got to know him so well and we really became great friends. Today was his last day there and he's not from around so it was most likely the last time I would ever see him. Does anyone else hate those kind of goodbyes? I feel like I have made so many friends this passed year but have had to say 'so-long' to them when they moved away or we just knew our paths wouldn't cross again. It can be so unfair and really upsetting.  

Sometimes I feel like life can move so fast. It doesn't give you time to catch up with it and enjoy it. I know there will come a time when things will settle down and I'll be in the same job for the rest of my life with probably the same friends, a husband and all the rest and I'll probably be missing my 20's when every month was different and a new start was always around the corner. So I guess I should just enjoy it and learn to go with the flow more. Besides there are some good changes that are coming about like my best friend moving back home for the summer. I cannot wait!

Let me know in the comments if you can empathise with me! Your twenties really can be a crazy up-and-down, all over the place kind of time in your life.

I would honestly love this constant change right now. And I feel like your 20s are the perfect time for all this because you've just been through 12 or more year of continuous schooling and you need a break, a change. And you're meeting so many new people. Just keep in touch with them. Maybe your paths will cross again some day. Maybe you can look them up when you're in their area. Think of all the friends you'll have everywhere.

Absolutely all the empathy for you, girl. You're dead right, and I'm sorry for all the transitions. But each one gives you an experience that shapes you and your life and your friendships into something amazing. Just keep moving with it, and find those people that you won't say goodbye to, even with distance and time. xx

There are so many relations with people I have lost due to time. Life and it's little plan to rush me along I guess. Just know everything happens for a reason. If those people are meant to be in your life, they will be. (:

I know that it can all be very positive! I guess I wasn't feeling so positive about it when I wrote this. But you're so right :) Thanks x

Tell me about it! I am 21 and I am exactly the same I have my friends graduating and moving all over the place my parents moving 3 hours away from our family home I have had to say so many goodbyes in the past year it is awful! I totally feel you there. But change is good as much as it can be bad. I am sure there is an even more exciting teaching job just round the corner and you will be thankful for everything you learnt at this school so you can apply it to your next one! That's what I always try to think anyway no experience is every wasted :)
