Jinkies, it's been a while since I posted on here. It's not because I forgot about it or anything, I've just had a lot going on. It's a particularly busy time for me at the moment, but it's for good reasons!
You might remember that I wrote this in August. I don't mind admitting that when I finished my work experience, I was absolutely gutted. On the Friday night I went to the pub with my temporary colleagues and I didn't want to leave, because I knew that as soon as I did it would be over. When I got home I sulked. Mum wanted me to discuss my last day with her, but I was in no mood.
On the 10th September, I got a call telling me that TBWA\Manchester wanted me as a permanent member of staff. I've now been working there for just shy of a fortnight and I can honestly say I couldn't be happier right now! The past few weeks, however, have been insanely busy. I get up earlier and spend an hour in traffic each morning, and I don't get home til gone 7 usually, and that's with only just starting out.
But yeah, everything's all systems go at the moment. I'm so happy though, and I did feel it was necessary to address my sudden uselessness to friends who I used to be in touch with constantly. But I;m too busy to do it individually, so here guys, now you know.
Aside from my cracking new job and being a thousand times happier than I was this time last year, nothing's new. But it's an interesting thought, this time last year. I was so fucking miserable. I'd just started a job that I knew I wasn't going to like and relationships with people in my life were nose-diving (not because of the job, just because of life). I just can't even explain how much more positive things are for me now. Everything feels right in the world.
