London's Calling...


I very rarely do posts like these but I felt an update was seriously needed!

In the past two weeks or so, my life has done a complete 180.  I never really mentioned it anywhere but the job I landed after University, although a great opportunity, wasn't really working out and started to make me very unhappy.  So, I quit.  One Wednesday afternoon, with nothing planned.  It was probably the most reckless thing I've ever done; and it felt amazing.

Since then, life has been a bit of a whirlwind of CV writing, interviews and sudden panics that nobody will ever employ me ever again.  Thankfully, it all came to head yesterday when I got a job offer for a role I desperately wanted and then signed on a property a stones throw away from Clapham Common.  I can't quite believe I'll be living and working in London - one of my dreams which I can tick off my bucket list!

Things may be a little quiet in the run up to the move but rest assured, once I get paid - there will be some major hauling!! 

Now, where was that Champagne...

  3. Congratulations. Pleased everything has worked out well for you. That must have been pretty scary quitting without having another job to go to? It will probably be the best move you've made and once you're settled in to your new job, you will wonder why you didn't do it a long time ago! I've recently moved teams in my job and it's been the best move I've made. I'm so much happier now. x

  9. That's such good news, congrats. Such a brave thing to do- so many other people would just stick it out and be very unhappy, but good on you for doing something better and more fulfilling. Good luck to you!
