    Weekly Wishes & Typhoon Yolanda

    Hello, friends! How about spicing things up on my blog this week? I’m new to these link up collectives but I’m always looking for new blogs to read and new friends to make. So, I decided to join Mel’s ‘Weekly Wishes’ link up at The Nectar Collective. This week’s photo theme is ‘hobbies’, and so I took a picture that reflected my hobbies = writing – I use my MacBook to write blog posts and stories, a notepad – for all my brilliant ideas, and drinking coffee in my OMG! mug. That’s a hobby, right? 🙂 My week’s wishes include: Getting back on track with NaNoWriMo – this year I…

    Happy November

    I finally managed to get rid of that free host I had which messed up my blog and tried to delete all my files without my consent. I am now with ofblue.org. Happy days. Happy November, guys. It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly the end of the year already – I could have sworn just yesterday I was still in university… My November has been pretty happy, not going to lie. It was Guy Fawkes Day on Tuesday and I went to see the fireworks with a friend. If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen the picture/video I took when I went. Guy Fawkes Night,…

    Here’s the Thing…

    So, I went to a thrift store last weekend. Here’s the thing… I’ve never been to a thrift store and well, frankly it wasn’t really a thrift store – it was just an event held by this vintage thrift store where everything was a £1. Let’s just say I was madly disappointed, especially since I went there with high expectations. We arrived at the venue and as expected there was so many people. Being a short person is a disadvantage in these sort of situations, but I battled through and we managed to get in in the end. They were only letting a few people in and out at a…

    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…
