    Sh*t They Don’t Tell You About Adulting

    Adulting is hard. I can’t tell you how many times I complain a day about having to “adult”. I really wish there was a handy manual that I could refer to when I can’t get my head around something, or better yet – I wish someone had told me what I was to expect when I grew up. Do you ever wonder what life would be like if they had taught us budgeting or money management when we were in school? Things like taxes, mortgages or setting up a savings plan. If you were lucky to have parents who helped you out with that, all I can say is that…

    Wondering

    I sometimes wonder what life would be like if young people weren’t pressured into choosing what they want to do with their life, so early on. From the time they do their GCSEs, it’s kind of expected that they’re choosing subjects that will set them up at a good university and onto a good career path. Question in point: Why do people need to desperately know what you want to do in life? I wonder what would have happened had I not gone to university and instead just got a part time job and travelled the world. Would I be worldlier? Or would I just be stuck up and constantly…

    Interning and Dating

    I consider myself very lucky to be in a job that I not only like, but in a field that I actually studied at university. All this was thanks to the first ever internship I did. As some of my readers might know, I interned at a place called Mutual Media from October 2013. I recently finished that internship to move on to a full time job at Move Digital, and I can honestly say I will miss that place. Not only was I paid at this internship, I also learnt many valuable lessons. Most internships you’ll come across in the UK aren’t paid for 3 months, and even then…

    Working Girl Problems

    It’s been a hectic few days and I’ve now come to realised how busy being a working girl is. Now that I have two jobs, I have to juggle between them – I am currently doing two days at Mutual Media and three days at Move Digital but it’s the travelling that is taxing on me. I have to travel quite far from where I live to get to these places. I just started working at MD yesterday , but I can tell the journey is going to kill me every time. It takes me about an hour, which in theory shouldn’t be bad, but I have to take a…

    January Depression

    Between having Netflix marathons of White Collar and desperately trying to come up with more ideas for my story, I have sunk into what I call ‘January Depression’. This period of time is right after all the excitement of Christmas and New Year when you notice that your trousers are a little tighter than you’d like and all you want to do is stay at home and watch TV because you need to save money. The only times you’ll go out partying is if you hear, “Entry’s free” or “Free drinks all night” and the only times you’ll see your friends is if they invite you around for dinner. Damn you,…

    November Loving – Happy December!

    November has finished, already?! Hello, friends! I can’t believe it’s December already… Last month flew by so fast, but I’ll admit it has been an awesome month. The Coca-Cola adverts have started showing in the UK, so that means it’s officially Christmas! Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? Anyways, to mark the end of November/start of December I thought I’d let you guys know things I’ve been loving in November! Shoes It gets really cold in the winter, so I treated myself to some new boots from Daisy Street. I used to wear my mum’s boots but she gets pissed out when I wear her stuff, haha. I love…

    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,…

    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…
