Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

I’m a graduate, get me out of here.

on July 22, 2015

They say that satisfaction brings stagnation. If you’re happy, or at least content, you won’t be driven to find anything new. I think that’s true to a certain extent. Hairy and I have been relatively content in Nottingham over the past year – I’ve got more hours at work and therefore more money, and Hairy’s been able to deal with work pretty well.
The sad thing is that I’m now beginning to hate being in Nottingham. The last time I felt like this was during my degree and I felt trapped by the city and unable to cope with that. I also thought that it was a by product of the degree – I just thought I was stressed by the workload and that made me unhappy in everything.
Over the past few months though, I’ve become progressively more unhappy. I am not enjoying work anymore, and I’m not enjoying the people who work there. All my friends have left/are in the process of leaving and that means I have even less reason to stay.
My only obstacle is money, and not being able to earn. I want to be working in a place that I feel happy in, that doesn’t make me angry and that I feel like I’m making a difference. I’ve lost any sort of drive at work, and that makes me sad.
I also have the difficulty that I am now suffering physically from my job – I’ve just been officially told I have plantar fasciitis which makes it incredibly painful to walk at times and that makes life harder!
I don’t know. I want a change, but I can’t afford it. I’m desperate to leave, but I have no way to be able to. I feel trapped in a city I’m beginning to hate, and I just want out.
