As some of you may know, I had a paid work experience job doing Public Relations (what I'm studying) at a fairly large company in my hometown so for the first time ever I worked fulltime. Can I just say this now, I HATE being a grown up.
Dear adults who find time to work blog and read,
How do you do it? How do you manage to go to work everyday, or even run around looking after children all day and find the time to read, let alone blog? I only worked full time (8.00am-4.30pm) for a month and it's like nothing I've ever experienced! I would come home from work, shower and then want to go to sleep immediately. I didn't read because I was, get this, exhausted. Yes, I was exhausted from working a normal job which I know is a part of life. *cries* I KNOW! I deserve to be slapped!
I seriously have newfound respect to all you lovely people out there who are stay at home mums, dads or who have to work everyday. I couldn't do it. Even when I was in highschool and was studying 5 TEE subjects and even now in uni, I STILL have more time and energy to invest in reading and blogging than I did when I worked full time!
I didn't lose my passion for reading or for blogging, I just literally could not do it!
I know this is directed at adults, but seriously can I give you a virtual hug?
No? Well too bad :D
I don't wanna grow up.
Well, that's it for me complaining about how hard life is and how much I love the fact I'm back at uni and back to learning, lectures and procrastination.
In other news, I turned 20 on the 18th July :) (there's that whole "being an adult" thing again, NOOOOOO) It was amazing, I got to spend it with my family and on the Friday night, my friends held a surprise dinner for me (yes, I cried a little. Okay, A LOT) and it was just overall amazing <3
*eats cake from Rebecca*
In celebration of my birthday and the fact that I'm nearly at 300 followers (YAY!) I think you can expect a giveaway coming up shortly :)
NOW. For the books. I know I said I was going to do a video but I can't be bothered and plus that would require me putting effort into my appearance right now hahaha :) So without further ado...
