‘I don’t know what I want do’, says everyone at some stage in their life

Life itself is already an up hill battle without having to choose what kind of career path you want to take,your goals and what you want to accomplish in life.

I am in a stage at the moment where I just don’t know where I should be headed with my job or life for that matter. I’ve searched high and low to find out what it is that makes me tick but I just haven’t seemed to find it yet.

People say that I’m still young and I will figure it out, there is time. But how can we even be sure of that? I often feel like I’m waiting around for someone who is going to tell me one day what I’m good at and what I should pursue. Though I know all well and good that that’s not how it works.

So instead, I go about my usual work day daydreaming about things I might like to do and jobs I might like to try, letting my motor mouth run wild, but never actually actioning anything.

I always feel down when I realise a job  I’d like would take 5 more years of study or includes several skills that will take me forever to master. I am perhaps worried about taking a new path now and investing a lot of time in to something that may not even be for me or not work out. Yet life is about doing things that make us afraid, right?

So I’m stumped. Where do I go from here? Have you guys ever felt like this? Let me know how you delt with this kind of situation.



Hot cross buns this Easter: hit or miss?

I woder why many of still get caught up in the age old tradition of hot cross buns. Aren’t they essentially a ball of raisin toast?

I know what you are thinking, “of course not, there are more raisins with added cinnamon goodness. Not to mention the chocolate flavoured ones!”. Well hang on a minute there, they are pretty close to being exactly the same thing. Or maybe your reading this and it’s the first time you’ve ever heard of them, in which case give them a go and let me know your thoughts!

So why is it that we don’t just eat them all year round? We may as well by the way these buns are marketed these days right after Christmas time. If the demand is there of course they are going to be on shelves. Who are the crazy people buying them so early and why doesn’t anyone have any resistance anymore?

It’s the buns without raisins and the vegan and paleo varieties that get me. Now these are just poking fun at what is a simple festive treat. I can just imagine how the conversation would go at a gathering “oh are your buns paleo Jenny?”, to which I would interupt looking down at at my chest and say, “nah, pretty sure they’re organic!”.

How do you feel about hot cross buns this Easter?
