I’d be lying if I said I’ve been too busy to blog, because I really haven’t. The last 3 weeks have been spent crocheting a “scarf” for my boyfriend and watching Gossip Girl.
My internship at The Reader Organisation ended in January and I had a great last couple of months there. Before Christmas I was given the opportunity to cover a reading group in Toxteth which was really fun. The people attending that group are great and I had a nice time covering the group and munching on mince pies. I’m trying to attend the group while I’m off but find it difficult because I seem to be forgetting what day it is these days. As you can see I also learnt how to crochet and attended Crochet Lunch every Thursday. I’m not very good at it but it’s so relaxing!
I was also invited to their staff Christmas party which was really good. There was lots of food, crackers and secret santa gifts. I got a Rubix cube which I’m going to pretend I’ve completed myself.
After the new year it suddenly dawned on me that I didn’t have very long left at TRO at all. I spent my last few weeks making sure all loose ends were tied and that there was a handover document for the next Market Research Intern. I then had a leaving do at the East Village Arts Club which was great. It felt so nice that people made an effort for that. It was great to work with such lovely and friendly people. I already miss them and learned so much from them.
What now? I keep trying not to answer this question. I’m still volunteering at News From Nowhere which I’m really happy about and helps me remember when it’s Friday. I had the chance to go to their Christmas party too which was at Brink on Parr Street. I’m also still working part time at Currys (their Christmas party was at Leo’s Casino…I had a very busy Christmas). I enjoyed working for an organisation so have been looking for jobs there in marketing and communication. The publishing dream is still there and is something I hope to take back up later on. But for now I’m going to keep crocheting and looking forward to the lovely and relaxing holiday I have planned in March. Bring on Gran Canaria! XOXO
