Hello there internet friends – I hope you are all somewhat proud of me.
Why, you ask? Well, your girl has only gone and scheduled content all the way up until the second week of March! Admittedly, this is only a few weeks into the future, but I feel way more on top of my blog and various commitments.
Sometimes when life gets to be . . . a lot . . . things tend to pile up and become overwhelming. Plus, it’s way easier to just bury your head in the sand and pretend you have no responsibilities. Once you’ve adjusted, however, it becomes a lot easier to deal. And I think I’ve found my feet!
Thank you, Jesus.
Today’s post is two things. It’s like a marriage of two odd, really different people; it’s pretty much doomed to fail, but I’m sure it’ll be interesting to watch. Grab your popcorn, kids.
Part one: life update. Part two: haul.
So, life update. I’ve just started my new job and I’m really enjoying it. It’s in a super convenient location and, when the sun decides to make a reappearance, it’s going to be brilliant. (Also, very good experience – I’m learning a lot.)
I got offered a second job for £15/hourly; I might not be able to accept it as my passport has taken a leave of absence (really need to order a new one) but if they can accept my photocopy, it’s only for a couple of months and that extra pay will be going straight to a fabulous summer . . . well, and taxes. Eurgh. But I get paid £10/hourly at my current place, three days a week, and the new one would hire me for 2 days a week.
The money would be divine. More importantly, the holidays I would go on with the money would be divine.
I got rejected from the one uni course I applied for. That said, it was a very last-minute choice (literally ten minutes before I sent off the application), my personal statement was quite literally entirely geared at a completely different subject and, if I really want to go, I can apply through clearing. I didn’t even apply for the one I built the whole portfolio for.
Honestly, I’ve found a couple of opportunities that I’d really rather do instead of uni and the prospect of leaving the working world doesn’t appeal to me much. University would be a massive lifestyle change and . . . I like my current lifestyle. At the moment, it’s a case of pros and cons.
Expect a post on that. At some point.
I’m currently figuring out what I want from 2018. Looking into holidays, setting some goals, making some plans. Booking some classes! That kind of thing. I’m in a pretty good place, actually. So that’s what’s going on in my life at the moment. Let’s get onto the haul! #Capitalism.
As I am trying to mix up my mediums, I have discovered that hauls are about 1,000 times easier when they’re videos – so have another haul video. It’s only like 2 minutes and I’ve been buying some cool shit. Make sure you’re on 1080px.
Okay, well this was just a really quick post. I’ve been wanting to share what’s going on in my life at the moment, but I really didn’t think you’d care that much. I do have some longer posts around certain topics (like uni, for example) in the works, but those may never see the light of day! So a kind of concise post like this seemed a bit more appropriate.
Plus, you know, it’s pretty hard to write a post entirely about a video.
What did you guys think of the video? I think I’ve found a pretty consistent editing style; I actually quite like it. Which is something I never thought I’d say about my editing skills. What was your favourite of my purchases? Let me know your thoughts down below!
