Catch up with me: Volume.2

Hey Guys,

I can't believe it's been a month since my last 'Catch Up With Me' post already, if you missed it you can catch it here.

November is a month I've been looking forward to since about June. I could tell from back then it would be a fantastic month and so far it hasn't disappointed. From the very first day of November I found out the best news, sadly though it's not my news to share just yet but it will be very very soon!

In the last post I mentioned I was working as a free intern but sadly at the end of that week I quit. I felt I was wasting my time when I could be searching for more relevant roles paid or unpaid. The main problem I found was that I didn't get any signal where I worked, the travel was a pain and because I was so dependant on my parents it was just so stressful but not in that work buzz kind of way. That kind of stress I love. I also wasn't doing anything relevant to my career goals and what was suppose to be a marketing intern I ended up being an office organiser and creating the products sold.

Once I finished at that place I went into full find a job/internship mode, applying for jobs all day every day. The main one which came back was a fairly local digital PPC account manager, which seemed perfect and what I actually want to do! I got called to interview, then called for some tests, then called back again for further tests and talks about the role. In total I had nearly 8hours worth of interview time, which all sounds very promising. I'm expecting a phone call tomorrow of whether I've got the job or not, all things are crossed and I'm sure there will be something on my blog about it! This could be the start of something very special for me and the first step into my career. I want it do bad.

October 2012/ October 2013

Later this week I have my graduation ceremony, Thursday to be exact! Obviously this meant I had to go shopping which I did in Portsmouth with my two friends who are coming down to Southampton to celebrate with me. Although it's Monday the ceremonies in 4 days..and I still don't have an outfit. I'm having an absolute mare finding that perfect outfit. This is really annoying me as well because I've hit my weight loss target which I wanted to reach for graduation, yet still can't find anything to wear. So frustrating.
I'm not dwelling on it too much though because I'm one pound off my two stone mark which just feels incredible. I haven't been this weight since I was about 14/15 so at 22 I'm so happy! I'm not going to go on too much about my weight loss though because I think I'm going to do a separate post on all that very soon.

I also mentioned in my last catch up I said my brother was returning from Oz, well he's back! yay. Although as you can imagine he's very grumpy, not loving life back at home in the cold English weather. It's nice for him to be home though.

I think that's all I've been up to recently just totting along waiting for that call for someone to employ me haha. I can't wait to get working and get a routine. Oh to be a busy bee, some peoples hell but that's really when I thrive!

I hope you've enjoyed catching up with me, I'll leave a few links below of some posts you may have missed. How is your November going?
