2016 REVAMP

Right. No more excuses. I have graduated university. No more excuses to not update this blog. No more excuses to stop writing creatively.

As I have not maintained a very good presence on this blog for the past year or so, it is high time for a tune up.

What has been going on with me since 2015?

Since 17th May 2016, I am a graduate. My English Literature degree is now finished and I am expecting results on 28th July! Exciting times. I’m not craving a 1., but I am hoping for a high 2.1. overall. (I am also in process of losing my revision weight.)

Instead of being peeved that I may have just miss a first, I am incredibly proud of myself. I got a first on my double-credit dissertation- about intersectional identity in Caribbean literature, writing on novels which I am so passionate about. Jean Rhys is a godsend to this Earth. May everybody devour and gorge on her work; she is utterly brilliant. I then, achieved a first on my Children’s Lit and my Georgian modules. My other modules got high 2.1s! #Nailedit.

Currently, I am employed as freelance editor. At the start of July, I am undertaking an internship with the same company. Working in Marketing for a publishing house is my dream! I am so happy and lucky that I am able to take the first steps towards it.

Again, I am so excited for life – especially my short-term life. I have printed my tickets to Newcastle and I am anticipating Beyoncé with every fibre of my being. (I can’t wait. She is going to be amazing!!!) The week before, to Harrogate to see a friend, and even before that I get to see my lovely boyfriend, who recently has done wonders for my self-worth. Above all this, I have a chance to reconnect with my friends in London – pre-university, while progressing my life and self here.

Why am I updating it my blog now?

Before leaving to university, I wanted a fresh start. I was desperate to leave London and immerse myself in a place, where I did not know a single soul. Now, I have finished university, having all the confidence and independence that comes with it, I am able to tackle and appreciate the metropolis once again.

I don’t need a fresh start anymore. I am continuing on from the wonderful (and the not so wonderful- down right bad really) things that I have experienced during university, and before it.

I am so lucky and fortunate. I have only told you a few things for why that is. Let me take this luck and love for life and share it with you.
