My first week of being a fully fledged working woman is well underway! It's been such a whirlwind, especially as I volunteered with London Graduate Fashion Week and have mystery dined in more Prets than I care to count!
I am loving my new job. The company is so interesting, the work is grabbing my attention and the team is super friendly. And although I'm new, I don't feel like the new girl.
It's a bit strange, being away from home but not in a place that's my own, but I'm not spending too much time in my hostel other than to sleep and shower. I'm spending most of my time at work, before and after my start and finish times, because I'm so interested in all the stuff that I'm working on and as a real bonus they have Yorkshire tea
. Tonnes of it. The very best type of tea. Great people + great tea = job match made.
Whilst I'm just graduating and have so much to learn, I feel like I'm in a fantastic position; the work being fresh, new and engaging, without being repetitive. Having an existing skill set that I can build upon and learn more about is great and so refreshing straight of university. I'm being given guidance without having anyone hold my hand, which is a great feeling; that people know you're capable and responsible enough to get the job done. It's really nice.
This was a good move for me. It wasn't as scary leaving H&M as I thought it might be, but I'm glad I took the leap. I'm taking the change of scenery in my stride, even if my bum isn't used to a desk job!
Getting a numb bum is a real and painful thing!
Obviously I can't tell you too much about what I'm working on at work, but it's creative, fulfilling and I'm having a blast. I feel exceptionally happy and am looking forward to all the other areas of life slotting in; starting with a permanent place to live!
I just thought I'd give you guys a little update, I know the blog had been on the DL lately, I've fallen out of love with scheduling as I don't feel it's as authentic, but once I'm settled in my own space, I'll be sure to pick it up again!
