So it’s been six months since the start of my apprenticeship. For those that have known me for many years, no one could have ever expected me to take such a route in life (I mean it’s only a year long, but it could well shape my life as I know it), and honestly I even surprised myself.

Okaaayyyyyyyy okay okay okay
So it’s been a little while on here since I’ve actually mentioned much about my current life situation, where I’m at, what I’m doing after A Levels, etc etc. So, for the interest of absolutely no one, thought I’d just give you a catch up.
Trying to remember the last time I actually posted anything about my actual life and what I’m up to…
Since last time, when I let everyone know what was happening during the summer after I received my A Level results in this post, things have kind of done some weird fast forward and my life is suddenly VERY grown up (ish) (I mean… I still laugh when someone says the words “do do”, but at least I’m laughing in an office now rather than in my room alone) If anyone follows me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram then you’ll probably know this already so maybe you can skip this post (just this once though).
So I have a full-time job. And not just a job (I quit Primark a few weeks ago, if you didn’t know) but an OFFICE job. Like.. I wear heels and everything.
I’ve landed myself an apprenticeship. Which is, in other terms, cheap labour.
No I’m kidding. I mean, it is technically, because apprentices have a lower minimum wage, but it means we can land jobs in places that we would otherwise need experience for. AKA, I’m now working in a digital marketing agency. And, because I attend college once in a while and do assignments (which I really should be doing right now), it means I also get a qualification out of it, which will hopefully enable me to skip university and, after this year, go straight into a full-time (and full-pay) job in this field, or similar.
So, all of that added together, means that I am working 9-5 in an office, in smart clothes, 5 days a week. I’m now a PROPER GROWN-UP. (Today, I even brought in a pre-cooked lunch. How weird is that??)
More things that have happened… Um I got a car (even though that was before exam results). How excitingggg. But.. I can’t drive it yet. I’m still learning, but have booked my test. I’ll be writing a whole separate post about my driving experience and lessons and tips for learner drivers in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that!
So, because of all these things, and also because I just feel like it and because I have SO MANY IDEAS NOWADAYS, I’m changing my posting schedule. And by changing, I mean improving because for the last like five months I have been shocking.
So, from right this very second (well more like a few days before this second because you’re reading this on Wednesday and I’m actually writing this on Tuesday (look at me! I’m actually SCHEDULING THINGS NOW)) I will be posting on this blog twice a week, at least until Christmas. I hope. We’ll see.
So, those of you who read my posts (all two of you) will be pleased to know that a new post will be up every Wednesday and Sunday evening. How organised am I?
I’m also aiming to go a bit more girly with my posts, meaning there will be more actually useful stuff for you. I’ll be continuing with my Uni series after Christmas as well, but my content might be changing slightly and become more beauty/lifestyle based. That means more outfits, more makeup and more lifestyle. But the purpose of this blog isn’t changing, I’m still all about the advice and helping you guys to grow up in the least messed up way possible!
Thanks for the read, see you Sunday!
