It’s been over two months now since I quit my 9-5 job as a Marketing Executive and went freelance as a writer, content creator and social media consultant. The first month passed by in a tinsel-filled blur, the second has been filled with work (thankfully) so I’m only just getting round to writing about this […]Read More
Life After Uni
‘I don’t even have a pl-‘ for life after University, as Phoebe would say (I hope you’re a Friends Fan). I often have no idea what I’m doing next and struggle to plan the next 5 months let alone the next 5 years.
Here, I share my experience of life after university. From things I wish I’d known, to the failures I’ve made along the way it’s all here. I will help you navigate the real world after graduation as I’ve done it and continue to do it. I don’t have the answers, but I’ve got some tips that will hopefully help!

My friend sent me a TED talk the other day where career coach Emilie Wapnick explains Why some of us don’t have one calling or as I’d put, why I won’t ever pick just one passion. It will probably come as no surprise to you that I was a child who was always busy. I […]Read More
I don’t know about you, but when someone tells me ‘I’m moving home’ it’s never really said in a positive way. Even though, they might absolutely love the humans they share that home with, it’s still I’m having to move back (emphasis on the back) home. I don’t know when, but somewhere along the line […]Read More
Today marks two years since my BA graduation from the University of York. In some ways, I can hardly believe it was two years ago, but at the same time, it feels like a lifetime ago. After all, so much has happened. It’s easy with any stage of life to reflect and form a checklist in your […]Read More
It’s the big question that most English students ask themselves, after three years of reading relevant (and irrelevant) books, what do you do with an English degree after university? Most people think that all English students have learn to do is leisurely read books as they overstay their welcome in coffee shops. I wish it […]Read More
