Obtainable Goals: A Life Update.

I know I’ve been very quiet. Though I’ve missed making my blogging content. However with good reason. Although I do not think I have talked about my future career goals on here, except maybe I’ve spoken about trying to build the blog more full time.

However, I know with the thousands of blogs and content creators out there, it’s a big ‘dog eat dog’ world, I guess that’s what the saying is. I would be so worried that I loose the enjoyment I have writing my blogs which are personal to me, a woman who’s a mother, managing with anxiety, just navigating this crazy crazy world.

I do have, what I like to call professional goals. This is my career based goals. When I was younger, about 8 years old, I used to want to be a Marine Biologist. I was fascinated by the ocean and it’s variety of ocean creatures, often writing mini information essays about said creatures or copying encyclopaedia passages out, over an over. Reminiscing on this memory, as an adult makes me realise one thing. The biggest flaw in this past goal was that I cannot swim. I was never taught how, and i have such a fear of water being in my eyes, that I can’t even handle goggles because I’m still anxious the water will get in. Learning how to is one of my adult goals now, however I can’t find any adult classes, so I fear the boat is out on that one.

I have spoken about this on my Instagram account. I feel the best use of my skills and interests, as well as personal reasons driving me to achieve my dream career as a forensic psychologist. This really would be the second most rewarding part of my life, after being a mother. Upon realising this goal, I identified and broke down my goal into achievable steps. Steps towards my goal.

  • Obtain my Access to HE certificate qualification, to enable me to get a place on my dream career.
  • Get place on my dream undergrad degree, Forensic Psychology.
  • Get a place on a relevant further training and experience.
  • Become a qualified/trained forensic psychologist.

2020 I went back to college to obtain my Access to HE certificate in humanities. I studied sociology, politics and international relations and psychology. This reignited my interest in psychology. I passed and completed my certificate, and gained a place on my dream university course, a BA in Forensic Psychology with a placement year. A great opportunity to utilize and gain professional experience.

Cut to today, where I am actively preparing for this next chapter of my life. Spurred on by the motivation I get from my son, who I do this for. In the aim to give him a better life. I hope to evolve my blog as I go through this big journey in my life, which I am the most proudest I am of me. For more regular updates you can follow my instagram: rebeccaklxo

I thank my readers for hanging in there and following my personal story via my blog.

Future Dream Car

Anyone who follows my social media, mainly my twitter and Instagram, would know my dream car is a Ford Mustang.  If your close to me, then you’ll no my strong views between the V8 Mustang and the eco boost one. If your new here, then I’ll elaborate further on that… My view is that if your going to buy an American muscle car, then you buy the V8 ‘proper one’ not the eco boost engine one. Please remember this is just my opinion.

So what’s the best way to spend my free time, then to build my dream car online. I used Ford’s website, and chose my dream car, Mustang to create. Here you can pick from body types, engines, transmissions, to the interior and the colour of paint on the car. It is a fun thing to do to kill some time online. 

The mustang I chose: I started off with the fastback body type. I very much preferred this over the convertible.  I also chose the 5 litre, V8 engine, with an automatic gearbox. To me, this seemed the most obvious pick. I feel like an automatic gearbox, would be easier in a 10 speed. I kept the interior classic black.  On this specified one, I changed the colour to magnetic, which costs extra. I’m open to this or just black. I feel like it looks badass in these dark colours. I also decided that I would get climate controlled seats as an optional extra. It’s my dream car why not go all out and get fancy heated seats.

If you happen to kill some time by making up your dream cars, I’d love to see them, via Twitter (@RebeccaKLxo) or in the comments.
