During the summer of 2019, I took part in a work placement at my local cat cafe, which was nothing short of a dream! I loved spending every day with the twelve gorgeous rescue cats at Pause, and spreading their message of love and fur-iendship (see what I did there?) to their wonderful customers.
During my time at Pause, I was able to create social media and blog content to promote Pause’s messages. These tasks were such fun and I was able to be creative in the best way.
Some of the social media posts I created for Pause can be seen in this blog post, which also explains what a day in my life was while working at Pause.
And here I will link two blog posts I created for Pause during my time there:
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 we may or may not be more than two weeks into 2018 already and I may or may not have been so damn busy with everything life (AKA procrastinating my uni work and watching Jane the Virgin) to write or even think about writing a blog post. But I was absolutely determined (ish) to get this particular one written and published, mainly for my own sake to look back on and reminisce and whatnot.
I hope you (whoever reading this) have had a brilliant 2017 and a fantastic start to 2018, and I know these few weeks are supposed to be like super depressing and gloomy than all the other months in the year or something, so we could all use a bit of cheering up. And what better way to cheer up than by looking back at all the cool sh*t I did last year, even though some things definitely did not go to plan.
So here goes nothing, here’s 50 things I did in the year 2017…
For some reason, as of late, my love of books has skyrocketed. Right up there, into the cosmos, floating around and taunting me above my head (mainly singing “Ha ha, you love books but can’t afford them!” and things to that effect). Like it really has hit the roof. I’m eight away from reaching my reading goal for 2017, and it’s only August. If that doesn’t tell you how much I love it, I don’t know what will.Continue reading “Bloggers Made Me Buy It // Books”
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.
