Hitting 100 followers & life update!

Hitting 100 followers & life update!

Hey guys,

Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of posts again these last two weeks. My plan was to write a bunch of posts at the weekend and schedule them to post throughout the week. However, I had such a busy weekend last week that I didn’t get chance to write a thing! But all is good as I’ve managed to get a couple written and scheduled today so expect a make-up related post and a food related post later this week.

For now though, I thought I’d do a little post just to say thank you so much as I’ve hit 100 followers! I actually hit 100 nearly two weeks ago so this is a little overdue, but I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you. I realise that 100 probably isn’t a huge deal to most of you but I’m pretty damn proud. Especially seeing as I’ve only posted a handful of times over the last four weeks (sorry!).

For today’s post, other than saying thank you, I thought I’d write a little life update. I’ve not written a life update before, mainly because I figured nobody would be interested. Although I’m actually thinking that it might be kind of beneficial to me, both to look back on and as motivation.

So, as I’ve previously mentioned, I recently started a new job. This coming week will be my fifth week as an Editorial Assistant for a media company, and honestly, the last four weeks have well and truly flown by. I am actually quite enjoying it, I’m basically paid to write articles for a website all day (with the occasional bit of admin-statistics type work), and although the topics I’m writing about aren’t quite my favourite thing, it’s not unpleasant at all. It is so ideal for me as it is just over in the next town, so it’s pushing me out of my comfort zone just enough, and the people are all so genuinely lovely.

So far it has definitely done my confidence the world of good and I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of this whole adulting thing. But mainly, I cannot bloody wait for pay day. I’ve never learnt this kind of money before and I won’t lie I’m fully intending the splash the cash and buy all the books, clothes, make-up and candles that I want. I mean why not? I may as well go wild now, because lets face it, I won’t be able to when I’m older and have a stack of bills to pay.

It has also given me loads of motivation for the future, I am so ready now to go get my degree and be the editor instead of the assistant. Speaking of which.. I’ve been offered three unconditional university places so far, including the University of Worcester, which I plan to accept! So I’m pretty bloody happy about that.

In other news, I’ve finished re-vamping my room and I’m really really happy with it, I absolutely love spending time in here (would anyone be interested in a post on that?). I’ve also got super organised and started a bullet journal/diary type of thing which is really helping me keep track of what I’ve got going on (or what I haven’t), and again, I plan to write a post about that in the near future.

Lastly, the only negative thing is that I’m nowhere near far enough through my reading list as I planned/hoped to be! If you read my post from back in January, which you can find here, you’ll know that I’ve planned to read 52 books this year. I don’t necessarily plan to read a book a week, sometimes I read no books a week and other weeks I can read four a week – it just depends on how busy I am. However, we’re now like six weeks in to the year and I’ve only read three books, which I’m kind of disappointed about, but there’s definitely still time to catch up I guess!

This may not have been the most enthralling post, but I’m trying to come up with things to post that are different every time. Depending on the response to this I might post another life update in the future, so if you liked this make sure you give my blog a little follow to hear more! Thanks again to the lovely people who’ve followed my blog already, and I’ll see you on Wednesday evening for a post all about food!

    Congratulations! The job sounds awesome and it’s great to see that on the whole, you are meeting your 2017 goals. I’m having the same trouble with my reading as well – I actually haven’t finished a single book so far this year which is shocking, but perhaps it has something to do with a focus on my studies as I have exams in May and June :/ Anyway, I hope that in time your blog will continue to grow and thrive ๐Ÿ™‚
