    Welcome to Singledom

    You know what I’d really like? To blog full-time, get paid for it, and be rolling in the money. That would be a dream come true. In other news, it has been a while since I did a blog. As you guys know, though, I have been pretty busy this summer. You should see my iPhone calendar for August, it’s just full of dots! This month is so jam packed, it’s ridiculous but I’m really glad it is because I need a fun summer to make up for the past 3 years of summers which have been mediocre. BIG NEWS: I am turning 21 this month! On the 21st of…

    Where’s My Holiday?

    You know that you’re too busy when you’ve had to stop one of your internships. Sadly, I had to stop my staff writer internship at Geekinsider.com because I just couldn’t handle writing 3 – 4 articles a week on top of doing assignments for the other internship and working Monday to Friday. Hectic, hectic, hectic. Can’t say I’m bored though. Working back in retail has been… interesting. I forgot how rude some customers can be especially in the area where I work which is known to be quite rough (see story about mad man with bat in previous post). It’s physically demanding as well because I’m constantly on my feet…

    (Not) A Moment of Peace

    I finally have a little moment to myself. This past week has been very crazy and it’s only Thursday! I dread to think what’s in store for me in the next few days. So, as you guys know I had an interview for the store Primark last week. I got the job! They called me the same day as my interview to say they wanted to offer me the job and that I would have my induction on the Saturday. It all happened a bit fast but I’m so glad I have a job now – can finally start earning some money, save up and fly awaaaaay. My induction on…

    Dating Conventions

    I’ve gotten to that point in my life where I’ve started to question all these so-called conventions when it comes to dating. This includes who should text first, how many days should you wait before texting/calling him, who should call first, etc. It’s all a bit ridiculous, I’ve realised. I’m a pretty impatient person, so if I just sit around waiting like I usually do then nothing will get done because we all know that guys are really, really clueless all the time sometimes. I don’t think guys realise how much they keep girls waiting and on edge. It’s annoying. I mean, really, what’s so wrong with the girl calling…

    Superstition

    I’ve always been a little superstitious. This is why I like to keep some things secret because I think that if everyone knows then they’ll jinx it. Despite this I think that that is a whole load of hooey, now. I had an interview to be a digital content intern at a business media company called UBM a couple of weeks ago. The position was to be held for 6 months and paid. I told quite a few people about this interview. Unfortunately, I didn’t get it which, because of my superstitious self, I thought was because I told too many people. However, they did give me a link to a…

    Leibster Blog Award

    Hey, beauties! I realise it’s been a while since a last did a post but to be fair I have been very busy. I have actually finished university, now! It still hasn’t quite sunk in yet, despite the fact that I’ve been back home in London for a week now. I spent the majority of my time after handing in my dissertation partying, so to be fair I’ve been too drunk to let it sink in. I also know that I am a little behind in replying to comments and I just want to thank all my readers who still visited my blog despite me not having posted in a long time.…

    Finality of It All

    Writer’s block can be tedious, can’t it? Especially when writing a 10,000 word dissertation due in 8 days. Yeah. As I am writing this, it will have been 24 hours since I last had a proper sleep. I know what you are thinking, ‘Chynna! You need your sleep if you want to write a good dissertation!’ You try telling that to my brain which just won’t shut the fuck up. A lot of things have been running through my mind lately, partly because I realise my time in education is soon coming to an end. Actually, in 8 days my education will have officially ended because that is when I…

    Prague Shenanigans

    As promised, here is the continued post from the Prague one. Things in Prague weren’t all smooth sailing. Whilst I did have fun out there, little things did annoy me and the journey back home wasn’t exactly the greatest. Here in the UK, we have this law where you aren’t allowed to smoke indoors in public places. I never realised how good the law actually was until I got to Prague. In Prague, you are allowed to smoke anywhere you want. The first club we went to, ROXY, was literally heaving with smokers. Not just regular smokers, but also people smoking weed. To say our clothes stank the next day…

    Things People Do That Annoy Me

    In my previous post, I mentioned that I would continue the story of Prague in the next post. However, I’m going to be put that on hold and instead write about things people do that annoy me. Recently I started watching Supernatural and there are just some things that the characters do in the show that annoy me – like, when they hear something rustling in the distance and get scared, they decide to go and check it out! Who does that?! If it were me, personally, I would high tail it out of there and never been seen again. Forget about being murdered by the Hook Man or eaten…

    When in Prague

    So, it has been a while since the last blog post but to be fair I was off travelling and having the time of life. Yes, I went travelling again – this time for my friend’s 21st rather than for field research, so it was 10 times more fun. We went to Prague for 4 days from 14th to the 18th, and boy, we came back with stories. Prague itself is a beautiful country. A bit smoky, but I’ll explain that bit later. To be honest, whilst we did explore it a bit, we spent most of our time partying. We arrived on Friday, and as soon as we grabbed…
