For five weeks in the summer of 2019, I worked as an intern for Pause, a cat cafe in my home town of Bournemouth. Officially, I was their summer Media, PR, and Events Intern, and my role was to manage the café’s social media presence and organize and promote their regular events. But, like any job role, I took on extra tasks when needed, and overall I loved my time at Pause. Not just because I got to work alongside twelve of the friendliest cats in the world every day, but because everyone there, from managers to volunteers, is so welcoming.
As with any job, no day at Pause is the same as the last. Being a café, there’s always something going on, even when closed. As my role included talking to customers both online and face-to-face, not to mention adapting to what was happening in the café on a given day, some days were completely different to what I expected, but always enjoyable nonetheless.
So, here is what a typical (if there is such a thing in a cat café!) day in my life as an intern with Pause looked like…
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. Read More »
I promise, I’m trying to get my shit together. I really am.
As still trying to get into the swing of things blog-wise (as always am), and because I was tagged by the lovely TaniaWrites to complete this tag (say tag more), and… that’s honestly all I have to say. Makes a change.Read More »
Following yesterday’s post all about the resolutions I set at the end of 2015 for the year ahead of me, and how I succeeded in those, I would like to start the new year off in exactly the same way as everyone else: with some resolutions.Read More »
I wanted to have completed this post by the close of 2016 but, as you can tell, that didn’t go so well.
Especially in terms of this blog, the end of 2016 for me was nowhere near as productive, exciting or fun as the rest of the year certainly was, which is a shame. I think after so many months of strict routine, 9-5 and motivation, this holiday took it out of me and I just sort of crashed, especially towards the end of blogmas. I’m actually severely disappointed that my blogmas plans didn’t work out, I had it all ready and rearing to go but by the middle-end of December I sort of fizzled out. Read More »
From the beginning of September 2016, I began my Level 3 Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing. A qualification that not only allows me to “earn while I learn”, but also enables me to get that ever-crucial first year of experience that is vital in almost any industry these days. So, this post is going to be about the first few months of my apprenticeship, how I’ve found it, and the finer details that those looking into what to do after education might be wondering!Read More »
