A Week In The Life Of OneShift
This week, I’ve decided to mix things up. Instead of telling you how to live the lifestyle of “part time work, full time life”, I’m showing you. I’ve ventured into the big wide world of OneShift and spoken with five Gen-Y’ers who are living the part-time work dream. Five, you say? What a coincidence that there are also five days in the working week! As usual, there’s no such thing as coincidence.
Each day this week we will experience a day in the life of a different OneShifter, chatting about their day-to-day life, travel dreams & career passions.
First up for the week! Please join me in welcoming to the podium, local Bathurst resident, Media Communications student and travel enthusiast…Katie!
What’s the most interesting fact about you?
I have around twelve hundred hobbies. Maybe not that many, but I have A LOT of interests and am never bored. It is a good thing however, because I can’t do ‘nothing’ I can’t sit and relax I have to be doing something, whether that be painting, writing, cycling, graphic design anything! It’s pretty funny when people say, “make your hobby your day job”… I’d have a new job everyday if that were the case.
What are your plans for today?
First of all I’ll be sleeping in, a long weekend is like getting an extra Sunday so don’t contact me before 9am. I’ll probably head into town for a late breakfast/ early lunch at Venue Café with my bestie because even though we’ve just spent the weekend together, we never run out of things to say.
Feeling bloated and sorry that I ordered that second latte, I would mosey home to work on my blog by planning next month’s features and checking on web traffic. Before it gets dark I’ll take the dog for a walk and then come home and binge watch Offspring season 5 which I just bought, whilst dreading going back to work on Tuesday.

What’s on the top of your travel bucket list?
So many things! If I had to narrow it down though, I really want to do a photographic tour of Iceland. A naturally beautiful, but often forgotten country, I am obsessed with Lurie Belegurschi’s photography and would love to do one of his tours. But I’d also love to do a road trip around America just because. The world is so big, it’s hard to choose!
If money didn’t matter and you could have any job in the world, what would be your dream job and why?
Ideally, I’d love to be a full time writer. I’d love to have the time to sit and work on a novel as well as run Kite Tales full time without having to worry about actually earning money. I also love solitude; not many people like silence and being alone but I love it. Give me a Macbook and a cup of tea and I could get lost for days.
