Catch Up

Been doing nothing productive for 3/4 weeks of my Easter holidays except catch up on a ton of TV & sleep that I'm pretty sure I won't have enough time for once classes begin again/begin internship. The French are coming for some "networking" event on our first day of uni and everyone had to fill in profiles of themselves, one of the questions were:

"Where do you see your career in 5 years?"
Honestly? I have no fucking clue. I feel like I'm at a standstill. Lost in a split road. On one hand I really like traditional publishing and do see myself immersing in digital media and e-books/online magazines. On the other hand, I just...don't know. I've been applying for a few other internships and things to do with fashion marketing and e-commerce which is what my dissertation is about so hopefully something will come out of that.

When I started this Masters I thought I had it all figured out. Instead I feel even more lost than ever.



Coffee & Rain

Easter this year wasn't as unproductive as the last. Discovering new coffee hangouts: Shoreditch Grind in Old Street and Nordic Bakery in SoHo. Red velvet and full-bodied espressos = complementary flavours; milky lattes and sweet Norwegian rolls = a new kind of bliss, as the rain showers down in gloomy London. She wanders along the back roads of Oxford Street, her daisy print umbrella in one hand and her future on a piece of paper clutched in another. She dons red lipstick while house hunting in Camden and hopes it gives her the confidence she needs. Off the tube at St Paul's and into the basement of The Red Herring pub, she pushes her way past the boys and girls in suits. It is while dealing cards and counting points over pints in the dim lights, 'this is it', she tells herself, 'I have found new friends for an old habit.'
