As an almost 25-year-old woman living alone in a little new build house, with a little dog, in a little place called Wednesbury, a lot has changed since I lasted posted on here.
So, what has happened and where are we now?
I graduated from University in 2018 with a degree in Fashion Journalism and moved to London to enrol on the most incredible internship at Fabulous Magazine for The Sun. (I know what you’re thinking but I learned a lot and met some truly incredible people that I now call my lifelong friends). After assisting on celebrity photoshoots and running around London collecting and dropping off PR samples from huge fashion houses, I moved back home to start a career and build an ‘adult’ life for myself.
Within 2 weeks, I had bagged myself a full-time copywriting role in a Birmingham based agency and was, of course, over the moon. All of my uni friends were still celebrating the end of an era and here I was kitting out my new pencil case with the finest inky pens ready for my next chapter of grown-up life. It’s safe to say this was an experience, and any of my lovely colleagues I worked alongside will know exactly what I mean (but this is a positive space so I’ll move on!). On a brighter note, my managers become best friends, my co-workers became family – we were all so close, and some of us still are. Tough environments really do create friendships for life.
Fast forward 4 years and we’ve landed in the present day, where I work in Tech from my spare bedroom/office/dressing room/safe space and spend 5 days a week working on digital marketing and content creation. When I do go into the office on a Tuesday, I am forever grateful for the gorgeous 18th century converted church I get to work in, as it really is breathtaking.
I’ve been living in my own home for 16 months, I’ve been a dog-mum for about a year, I’ve been a girlfriend for 248 days and a Marketeer for half a decade, and it’s safe to say I’ve never been happier.
So, that’s where I am now. But where am I going next?
You will have to stay tuned for my 5-year plan… (which hopefully includes a big rock…).
Totally kidding. 🙄
