What Is Temping Really Like

Monday, 11 November 2019


As you all know, I've had a bit of a rough year when it comes to my mind this year. I love blogging and I love everything that social media represents and brings to my life, but I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

I don't think I can work from home full time anymore, I've tried working in coffee shops, in shared offices, it's just not for me. So to my surprise, I have started temping. For the last week I have been temping as a receptionist.

The first thing that came to my mind when I thought of temping was Charmed (I was obsessed with the original version of this growing up). I remember the character Paige Mathews played by Rose McGowan was feeling unsure what what she wanted to do. She had a passion for full time witchcraft but needed money and wanted the freedom of uping and going when she had to. And in someway, I really do quite relate to her on this. Although my passion is blogging and not witchcraft. It's funny how life pushes you in places you never thought you'd be going.


I never thought I would temp, I never thought I'd work in reception as it's not a job that ever crossed my mind, but, you know what. This week has felt wonderful. Maybe because it's a temp role, maybe because it's a reception job, but my state of mind has drastically increased.


This got me thinking of two different reasons it could be. Firstly, have you ever met a receptionist that wasn't happy and smiley. Not really (except if they work in a the doctors surgeries/ hospitals, because they have a lot to deal with.) It might be that you spend the majority of the day greeting people, answering calls, receiving packages, there's not much to stress about is there. And you can spend the rest of your time on the internet, shopping, reading, doing whatever you like really. Crazy isn't it.


And the second reason might also be the fact that I am only temporarily here. I know there's an end date and I don't really have enough time to sit around and draw on everyone else's negative energy. It's quite a surreal experience to be honest. I believe that I am a super positive and excitable person, but I also wear my heart on my sleeve and I can absorb other people's energies. This may sound funny to you, but I really feel like that.


So by temping so far, I've really enjoyed the time I've spent being a receptionist. I've signed up with an agency, which have secured temporary work for me until Christmas. The pay isn't incredible, but you know what, I don't mind at this moment and time. I'm able to do my blog work, answer my emails and at the same time meet new people, have face to face contact with people and it's what I've been needing in my life for about two year I'd say.


So if you feel like you're in a similar situation, feeling yourself in a downward spiral, then please don't let it get worse, because trust me it does. There's something so beautiful about getting out the house and doing something, anything. And even if it's not your dream job or career, taking care of your mind/ anxiety is super important.

I really hope these blog posts can help just one person, because when I was going through my worst days, I turned to just feeling positive that things will change, and with one week done, things.
