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

thanks for the adivce on job hunting. TBH i'm thinking about the job hunt as well.....i have a job but i feel like it is time to move on, but i keep holding back. i will make an effort to search for jobs for me, rather than jobs out of desperation x

Promise said...

This is giving me encouragement, the job hunt is what was giving me anxiety the last few months of uni. It has not been easy and haven't really been successful, but have to keep going.

I've applied for so many this week and now that I finally have results, hopefully I'll have a similar situation.

Wish you all the best beautiful and looking forward to hearing more about whichever job you choose.


Unknown said...

This is why I love you!
You literally take my brain, mash it all up and extract words....its just genius.
I love this post. So short and non-comittal, but the general gist of it is exactly what I needed to hear tonight. Thank you and God bless!
And before I forget? CONGRATS dude! You deserve it!
Lets take over the world together, my fellow whore (lol saw your tweet about that today....looooool people REALLY need to chill)

I mean, yeah, you look good, you do an incredible job with your make-up ( and give the best tips) and I like your fashion sense but you had me at 'they couldn't afford the awesomeness that is me' because I came for the hype and just became an instant fan because of your funny, witty, straight up writing!!
