The verdict is…

Glastonbury was AMAZING. Results day was not. Glastonbury Beautiful weather, amazing live music, great atmosphere, warm JD and coke and a few beers. Lush. Dizzee, Florence, Muse, Vampire Weekend, Tinie Tempah, SCISSOR SISTERS! Just a mere few of the highlights of an amazing weekend spent with the masses. Defo a festival convert and Worthy Farm will be visited again in the near future 🙂 Results Day Not so good. Found out in the early hours of Friday morn whilst dancing round in a field at Glasto, with a warm can of Carling in my hand and many more in my belly. Shorthand and me it seems just are destined to hate each other for ever more. I cant recall a time when myself and subject detested each other quite so much, but it seems this on is here to stay. Well till the dreaded re-sit day in August. And that is my weekend in a nutshell. Doubt I’ll be having one quite like it for a wee while.

And it begins…

Three days after I blog about jobs, and how hard graduates find it, the interviews start to creep in. Ok, I have only had two but that’s alot more than where I was last week. First interview tomorrow, slightly apprehensive. Not had a job interview since I was 16, and seeing this is for a PROPER job rather than a weekend job I think its safe to say, it will be scary and official and I will have to be on top of my game! Hopefully, it will go fine and I will get offered a perfect graduate position and live happily ever after. Fingers crossed.

“Hi, Job-Centre please”

So, I’ve now been living back at home for three weeks, back to the same job I’ve had since I was 16 and spent the best part of the day training newbies up. Newbies who are 16, in their first year of college and their first job. So why is it that I’m still there?? Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking the fact that I have a job, god knows I’m thankful for that. It keeps my topshop addiction at a healthy level and allows me to look forward to the upcoming week of madness that will be Glastonbury 10! My point is, whilst working in a little well known establishment that old people seem to generate towards, often I get told, ohh there’s plenty of jobs when you graduate, you wont be stuck here forever, what you doing after university? Well at the moment it seems nothing. If you don’t live in the capital, journalism jobs are far and wide. So what’s next? Carry on in shop work, move into admin, hell I’ve …

Major girlie crush developing!

It’s safe to say that since she burst onto the scene screaming about kissing girls and cherry chapsticks I have been a fully paid up member of the Katy Perry fan club. Her outrageous sense of style, lets not forget she was around before Gaga rocked up, with her light up dresses, blue hair and an enormous fun factor, that sometimes Gaga lacks. Put together with Russell Brand, and an Indian themed wedding expected in October, it seems its not just me that’s loving the Perry at the min. Roll on the second album to bring more crazy outfits and that Jessica Rabbit sexiness that Katy ooozes! Ohhh yes, defo can feel a girlie crush coming on. After looking at this pic I might need a little lay down!!

Festival Essentials

In one week I shall be undertaking my first ever festival experience and I think its safe to say, I am more than excited! Bought  every item that single person I know, who’s either been to festival or just been camping, has said is an essential must have, but just to be on the safe side, I suppose I’d better make that all important list! Wellington boots Pack a mac Hoodie Sleeping bag! Pillow Camping chair Baby wipes Hand sanitizer Toilet Roll Alcohol!!! 🙂 Food! Torch Anything else to add to the list?? Think it’s safe to say I WILL end up forgetting something no doubt!
