Luck has come my way.

So you remember me telling you about how I had an interview last week for a PR Comms Assistant job? Of course you all do.

Well I have some news to share with you all….drum roll please…

I GOT THE JOB!

You really cannot fathom how excited and giddy i still am! I found out yesterday morning, whilst i was on the Megabus heading to London for the night. The waiting game was horrible and it was either going to be a great night in London, or i was going to be sulking all weekend. It was definitely the former.

I wanted to scream that i had a job on the bus, but i didn’t think many people would appreciate it so instead i squealed to my best friend, proceeded to ring my parents and grandparents, text all my friends, tweet and facebook the news all the while trying to contain my inner screams about how i now have a full time job and its a job to do with my degree.

So yes, London was amazing. Me and my friend spent a few hours together before meeting the friend we were staying with. We ate lunch in Hyde Park, watched an Indian film being made at Trafalgar Square. Walked in and then back out of Tate Modern, ‘shopped’ on Oxford Street, drank with the posh people before heading to Below Zero and having 40 minutes in the ice room drinking. The we went to an Italian restaurant next door where we were joined by another friend. Me and my friend proceeded to drink a bottle of Prosecco then on to the last pub where we had more drink. So to say i was drunk would be an understatement. I had an amazing day/night in London and even had one last drink at 1pm today in Wetherspoons in Victoria station before catching the bus home, hungover and tired. (And this is someone who hardly drinks anymore. I really packed it in didn’t i?!)

I really cannot wait to start in two weeks time. 2013 wasnt looking that grand for me. My luck has been non-existent for nearly a year now but thank you so much (I’m thinking you are waiting for this post haha) for believing in me enough to offer me this job and i look forward to becoming  a part of the company and working my butt off!

Here’s to handing in my notice on Wednesday for NEXT 😀

And here’s to going to sleep now- I’m surprised I’m still up…

Happy New Year!!

HELLO YOU LOVELY PEOPLE!

Just a quick blog post to wish you all a very happy and drunken New Year’s Eve!

This year I have decided to stay in and roll the New Year in with my mum whilst watching TV and drinking wine. Over the past few NYE’s most of them have been bigged up and ended up as a rubbish night out; plus clubs are too expensive, I hate large crowds, the drinks are expensive and probably watered down and the taxi’s cost double. So…I am in favour of a cheap night in for once!!

Anyway, if you are going out, have a great time and have a drink for me! Leave 2012 in the past and look forward to what you can achieve in 2013. Make it the best year you can.

I’m not making any resolutions for next year as I never keep them, but as long as I just keep up my weight loss and applying for jobs I know I can do and will make me happy, then it’s all I can ask for. Also, I have been kept on in NEXT so that’s a great present to me, yet books is my passion, so one day I WILL make this a career. Next year? Maybe, who knows what will happen.

2012 for me has had its ups and down, and right now, I am as happy as I can be. I hope 2013 can carry on being as great as the last couple of months for me and I hope I can write how amazing 2013 has been this time next year.

See you on the other side 🙂

 

Book progress so far.

Carrying on from ‘Writing a book? Yeah Right‘ I thought I would use this blog to, now and again, tell you have I am getting on with my writing. Although I have previously told you all that I am re-writing stories that I used to write when I was younger, doing so has, in fact, made me realize how much time and effort it takes to planning and writing a book.

With the first story I am re-inventing, after reading it, I knew there was a lot I had to change about it. It might have looked and seemed like a great story when I was younger, but now, after having a Journalism degree – which should help me with my writing – I’ve had to turn the story on its head and add and take out parts which just didn’t seem to fit or even make sense in the situation.

It may seem more helpful if I told you what this book is about, but alas, I am not going to tell anyone until I have finished it. I will tell you it could be classed as a ‘Young Adult’ book – seeing as the bases of when it was written was when I was about 14/15, and i really want it to be aimed at teenagers/young adults. The story isn’t exactly conventional within this society in the UK, but it could be with other countries but as a teen writing this back in the day, I think I wanted to write a story about if it could happen here. Sorry, I know I’m confusing you and not giving much away, but I’m just trying to give a little bit of detail about how I came to think of this story.

Anyway, I am currently on page 31, and starting to write Chapter 6 at the moment. The ‘new’ story still has the outline of the old one, but it seems more realistic than the old one, which I am glad of. It will probably take me a few weeks, if not months to complete it and then proof-read and edit some more but over the following weeks, I will posting my progress upon this blog of my writing, and I hope you’ll all follow my journey. At times, it seems this idea may be silly, but if i have these on my computer, and my passion for writing, I’d love to have a published book. So I hope you stick with me, and when the times right, I will tell you exactly what this book is about and whether you’d have an interest in reading it.

Until next time.
