    Diary of an Intern

    I’ve been eating a lot this week… well, few weeks. Being a foodie it’s expected. The only problem is that because I have a week off from work I haven’t been getting the exercise that I usually get from there. Walking? What is walking? Unless you count the amount of walking I did in Birmingham on Friday – I got a blister on my right little toe  @_@ Here’s some good news for you… more good for me, but obviously you should know as well. I finally got a paid internship! It’s an advertising company called Mutual Media and I start mid October. My last day at Primark is next…

    #IAMANADULT #ISWEAR

    It’s actually been a really long time since I wrote a blog post. Almost a month? In my previous post, I did mention that it was my birthday month, which explains why I was too busy to write anything. I mean, I hardly tweet anymore! The only thing that gets updated regularly is my Instagram – so, if you’re interested in what I get up to on a daily basis follow me on there. My birthday month has also made me very broke, just because two of my close friends are also born in August and we’re all grouped right together at the end. This means that my money flew…

    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…
