So I’m currently temping at a well known car brand aftersales centre. I’ve been working there for a couple of weeks now and it is fine because the staff are lovely and the days go quickly…despite the large number of rude and precious customers.

As part of a classic grad life crisis I keep having so many conflicting points of thoughts in my head: I hate doing my standard, repetitive temp job, but it’s very easy money for the time being. I would really … Continue reading Sunday Reflection

All capitals title to emphasis this isn’t a joke. The context is: I had to write a 12,000 word dissertation and I submitted 7,500 words. Aka I failed, and I fucked up so badly and it is definitely my fault. … Continue reading MY DISSERTATION DISASTER.
Full credit is now given to people who manage to continue blogging alongside uni/school/real jobs, it’s hard to dedicate time to writing and upkeeping a blog when other things get in the way. For me, things have been ok. Final … Continue reading I Went M.I.A For A Bit
Monday… Again. Hello to another week. I often find that I allow how my Monday went to set the tone for the whole week ahead. If I have a good Monday it’s great and I know that I will have … Continue reading My Week
