After taking a 3 week mini hiatus (that was totally unplanned, oops) I thought it would be nice to talk about what's been going on in the past few months. It's been a little while since I posted one of these (early March I think my last one was!) and a whole lot has happened since then. It's been a bit of a mixed bag really, with some really exciting things cropping up and some things not so much - but all in all, I'm feeling quite content.
The past few months have been rather busy for me, completing 3 internships in the last 3 months. Which, considering in January, I couldn't leave the house on my own at all, is pretty good going! I finished my placement at Intu Metrocentre, which was amazing, and then was asked if I'd like to join the Core team for NE1's Fashion Futures event. With weekly team meetings, I was given the task to organise the goodie bags beforehand and on the day of the event itself, I was on the door making sure each guest was seated - as well as helping with various other tasks (including making a right fool of myself in front of 300 people... like I would, haha!). It was all completely out of my comfort zone, but I had the best time and enjoyed every minute. I've also recently started another internship - helping out at a local PR office to relaunch their online magazine, completing social media tasks, writing articles etc.
Oh and did I mention? This is all on top of working on my University dissertation. Yes, I have to complete my full final year of University assignments in 8 weeks start to finish. I am completely freaking out if I'm honest, so chances are I may be a little quiet over here until the end of August (although I'm going to try and get 2/3 posts up a week!), but the website I'm launching is coming along nicely - there'll be a post coming soon talking more about it, as I'm going to be on the hunt for contributors! Go follow it on Twitter for the more details, it's a website that'll support creatives and small businesses and I'm really quite excited about it all.
And so, onto the blog. If I'm being honest, I've not really had my blogging head on recently. I've not been reading many people's posts, nor have I even been thinking about my own. Apart from my outfit post and the odd other one here and there, I feel like I've fallen into a bit of a blogging rut. I'm not entirely sure that working in social media and article writing has sort of made me feel like a chore to me, or that I've just got a little lazy. Anyhow, that buzz I've always had for blogging has dwindled somewhat over the last few weeks. Don't get me wrong, I'm still proud of my blog and I'll always be posting on here, but that love and excitement has fizzled out a little. I want to have fun with it again, without follower counts and daily views being a priority! But I have plenty of exciting posts coming up, so hopefully I'll be out of this funk in no time - I've spent the past week on holiday in the Cotswolds and I'm feeling somewhat refreshed and ready to take on the world again!
And that's about it. I'm not really sure where this blog post went or the whole point, but sometimes it's nice to just have a chat, right? A little low-down into what I've been up to recently!
