Hello to all you lovely people reading this!
Gosh, it sure has been a while since I sat down and started writing a blog post. Yeah, a real long while.
Much has happened since my last post… in September! Get out of here, it has not been that long. Has it? 7 months? Well, there is definitely one thing that hasn’t changed since then: England is still rainy. How awful is that?
Aside from the dreary weather updates, what has been going on in the last 8 months… Have I been in hibernation? Did I move to another planet? Or did I quit my hectic life, move to another island and decide that I now want to be a technology-less hermit? The answer is *cue drumroll* I started my MSc in Digital Marketing in September, and have barely had time to look up from my assignments, reports and usual boring stuff that happens at university. So, nothing interesting then. Nothing that involved moving to a beautiful remote island or ditching my phone for an ice cold margarita. Ugh, that would have been so much more exciting. At least I can say that, that is a dream in the pipeline.
Now that I’ve put an end to my not-so-mini hiatus from WispyLashes, let’s chat. If you fancy a lil’ girly chat, put on your comfy clothes, grab a cuppa, cosy up with lots of blankets and cushions, and enjoy this read. I say I won’t make this super long, but I’m not so sure about that, so you may as well get comfortable.
But wait, where do I start? Let’s rewind all the way back to September 2017. Just imagine me getting out my old VCR recording and turning it all the way back. It’s only been 8 months, but here I am talking like I’m Rose in the final scene of the Titanic. Although, it does feel like it has been 82 years.
Okay, okay back on track. So, I decided to do a Masters in digital marketing. Yep, and what a great decision that has been. I’ve never enjoyed/hated something more in my life. This degree has been so exciting, I’ve learnt new things, met some incredible people and overall had an amazing experience. But (there’s always a but), I genuinely forgot how much work comes along with university. How could I forget you must be wondering. Well, let’s just say I had a pretty naive idea that a postgraduate degree would be the equivalent of third year at undergrad level… and then more some, and I thought I could manage that. Oh, how wrong was I! An assignment every 3 weeks? 8 hours of classes with only an hour break in between? … *long gasp*... Group work? That’s not what I expected. I can almost hear a Miranda Priestly-like voice in my head right now: “What, you didn’t expect any actual work at postgraduate level and just thought you’d waltz through the year and get a first? Hm.”
So, anyway, I’ve handed in my penultimate piece of work, and I am headed off to Austria for 3 weeks in July. How exciting! Well, only if you ignore the fact that I’m going to a summer school and I will have classes 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Oh. Well, I am sure that I will have some time to explore beautiful Vienna, and definitely be able to soak up the sun (once I’m out of the classroom). So, what can be worse than going to a summer school over the summer? Why, writing a 9,000 word report afterwards of course.
Let’s just not even focus on any of that for now, and talk about something a little more exciting. Something like going to India in October to see my husband! I still cannot believe that he is not yet in the UK. I think setting up life on a new planet would actually be less time consuming. No, but seriously, the Home Office has absolutely no concept of reality and the idea that they are splitting up two people in love, it’s heartbreaking. But, I don’t want think post to be about my strong dislike for immigration procedures (trust me, you’d be scrolling for a while). Hopefully, the end of 2018 will be more fruitful than the beginning.
So, I hope you guys enjoyed this mini comeback post, I know I cannot wait to get back to making some content! I have a lot of good ideas planned, and I am super excited. I want to add something new and fresh to this blog, and I also want to include some aspects of my own life, which I hadn’t really done much of before. Thank you to all of you who take the time to read my posts, it means a lot (and a lot).
I’ll be back next week with some more exciting, new content, catch you soon!
