Rejection, Rejection And More Rejection



The last three weeks have been crazy busy to the point when I was on the verge of crying almost every day, plus, my bank balance has been taking an almighty hit.

I'm back on the job hunt, with my traineeship finishing in about 6 weeks - cue crying and hatred of change. When I've finally felt like I have the hang of everything, poof, it's in finishing distance, and it sucks.

So I've been writing applications and was incredibly lucky to get interviews for them all. However, that's where the good luck ended. I didn't get any of them.

I was upset at the time, getting rejection e-mail after rejection e-mail, feeling tired from travelling almost every day to London and back, and feedback all along the lines of, "you have great experience and we didn't think you couldn't do the job, it's just that someone was better".

Someone was better. How can I get better?

A week later from my rejection heavy week, and things are starting to be put back into perspective, thankfully. I'm no longer crying, and worrying too much about the future. And goodness, I could be in a lot worse situation. A lot.

So, here's to rejection. It's only made me more determined to keep going and find the job that's right for me. And, that's it's also okay to have a little cry about life, because who really has their shit together?

Here's to great friends, collegues and family who have told me not to give up.

Glastonbury 2017




I think I have finally recovered from Glastonbury, almost a week on. I came back on Monday tired, with a very sunburnt forehead and cut knees.

I had never camped before, and the idea of not showering or washing my hair for 5 days made me feel really nervous, but luckily the weather was on our side. Not too hot and no rain (!). The shower when we got home was glorious though!


It was an amazing experience and I would really encourage everyone to go at least once. The site is huge, and I love how much thought goes into each area, it definitely is an instagrammers paradise. The only downside was that there wasn't a huge amount of bands and acts that I really wanted to see, meaning I spent a lot of time following others around and wasting time. But that's the risk you take when you buy a ticket and don't know who is playing! The food was also amazing, whatever you fancied, you could buy it. I ate a lot of doughnuts, Thai green curry and noodles!

I did see some great bands, and Ed Sheeran was amazing. We went down an hour before he started to get a good spot and the atmosphere was incredible with everyone singing along.

Would I go again? Yes, probably, but not for a good few years. Check out the spotify playlist below with some of my favourite songs from the bands I managed to see.
