Lazy Hazy


Right, I have been a bad girl and not keeping up to date with my blog. Slap my hand now! The only reason I haven’t been posting recently is because I’m completely knackered by the time I get in from work. It’s been going really well. Hopefully get paid at end of this month, which will be a nice welcome change to my bank account.

The only exciting thing that’s happened this week is James coming to stay for a couple of days. So nice to see him. It’s hard now being in a long distance relationship but then again it’s nice to miss each other. Am happy to be going back down to the south coast this weekend. Miss Brighton a lot. And everyone in it.

Speaking of missing people, my dearest friend Tom is leaving soon to go up North. So the weekend just passed we all went out for a little goodbye drinky doo. He was wrecked but was such a blast. Sooooo, so funny. Drunk times always are. But not the smell of Maccy D’s sick in the back of a cab. The next day me, Tom, Lucy, Holly and Tash went for a big cafe breakfast and mooched round town for a bit. Unfortunately I had to head home, yes in the previous day/nights outfit. Charming I know. So missed out on feeding the ducks in Kensington gardens.

However, my cousin came over and hung out, monging out more like it. Baking brownies that turned out more like tar. Not good. But, yeah pretty good weekend all in all. Strictly as always with a bit of X Factor and now Celebrity.

Enough for now; some more in another weeks time.

Information Overload


What a brilliant first week I have had at my brand new job. My first day started on Wednesday, and what a day. The first hour was the most nerve racking ever. There I am being thrown in at the deep with one person telling me this, the phone ringing, the door buzzing, people introducing themselves. Was so much to take in that all I could do was smile nicely and keep saying however “overwhelming” I’m finding my first day.

Thankfully I was allowed to leave at 4pm as the office was holding its annual T&T (Transform and Transcend) awards dinner and drinks, in the style of the critically acclaimed ‘Mad Men’. Was such a good way to meet everyone informally, once everyone had, had a bit to drink. I obviously, being my first day and all, stayed pretty much sober as I did not want to make a complete and utter tit of myself, as I seem to do when I usually drink (but who doesn’t). It was also a very good way to begin to understand office politics and get to grips with the office gossip, which I was very much involved when I had lunch the next day with some of the girls from the office. Chilli Bake/Bowl at the Three Kings is amazing by the way. But again a nice way to get to know people. I keep using the word nice and it might seem like an overstatement, but really everything’s gone really well.

Everyone has been so nice and welcoming that I feel pretty much settled in and its only been three days. I think this is a good starting point for me and I am very much looking forward to getting stuck in all areas of the Branding/Design aspects. I want to soak everything up like a sponge.

On the up

It has been a long two weeks. But a two very good weeks. Have been working hard at Revolution Film, where I had my placement. Lots of running around, but met some really lovely people who gave me soooo much advice. As mentioned in my previous blog, I met the wonderful Stephen Fry last week. This week, on Tuesday, the gorgeous Jonathan Rhys Meyers was in the office. He is too beautiful for words; utterly gorgeous.
Alongside this I have been a busy bee going to various interviews and after a lot of struggle and thinking nothing was going to come of my hardship, I landed a proper job, which was confirmed yesterday. I can’t still quite believe it. I finally have a job that pays a bloody decent wage and can think about saving to move out and save to my masters, which now seems more likely to happen.
It seems to have been two successful weeks since my last post. And tomorrow I get to see my lovely boyfriend and spend a couple of lovely days hanging out before I start work on Wednesday. I desperately want to see the new Mike Leigh film, ‘Another Year’, meant to be brilliant. Was given five stars in a review so fingers crossed will be good.
Am finally excited about where things are going. I’m still striving to eventually be working in the film industry but know I need to start to earning to be able to live. But things are on the up and it feels nice.
