I'm a Writer

You all wanted to know what I do, and that is it. My actual job title is a 'content executive', which is a fanciful way of saying 'copywriter'.

It's so weird that I get paid to write. Like, someone actually gives me money so that I can form sentences. Plus, I get to tell jokes and be myself (with some guidelines obviously). However, guideline or nay, I can honestly say that I love my job and although it's taken me a while to embrace the people, I also secretly love my team. 

We are funny, witty, smart and undeniably insane. 
I don't think they are quite aware of just how insane I am and I intend to keep it that way (at least until I am through my probation period)

Today, I discovered a colleague's blog. It isn't about fashion (although she dresses rather nicely), but it is blood funny and text heavy - just the way I like it.

So, this is me hoping that my opinion carries any weight...

AND tell her to write more!!

Ain't that the pot calling the kettle noir?

Oh and if you haven't been accosted by my vanity across various social media platforms already, I have embraced curly hair.

Quick Update

Yeah, so I may have told a little porky when I said I would blog yesterday. This post right here, is to remind y'all that I am not dead, and to explain my whereabouts.

Ok, so erm in the past month, I have lost my job [not because I was bad, but because they couldn't afford the awesomeness that is me]. I spent a long while feeling all woe is me...(erm that is after I stuck my middle finger to the world and went on a YOLO shopping spree [got some pretty stuff too])

BUT, following a pep talk or ten, and of course the realisation that my savings were not eternal, I dove back into the job search. In a moment of desperation/sheer determination not to be poor, I almost accepted a job offer into a career path that had naught to do with my future.

Anyhoo, long story short, I interviewed for two cool jobs [both offering WAY more money than the old job] and got both, thus going from no jobs, to all the jobs! BOOM.

I have made my decision though and I fully intend to take over the world etc

So watch this space.

P.s. To anyone searching for a job, DO NOT GIVE UP and DO NOT settle for something you won't love. I have been there, done that and bought the t-shirt from the charity shop because I couldn't afford the high street version and I am here to tell you, it ain't werf it lav [loosely translates to 'it isn't worth it love']

So here's to getting paid to do something you enjoy. CHEERS!
This is just in case you'd forgotten what I look like
