Quick bullet points before I elaborate:
I was offered and accepted a job as a Reporter for HVP and BMN magazine.
I have been in the job for three months, and I have now moved down to London.
So, after nearly 200 applications and nine months after finishing my Masters, I finally got the job I wanted.I work for two magazines Heating, Ventilation and Plumbing and Builders’ Merchants News. I do a huge variety of tasks during the day from writing, design, social media and subbing.
I am only three months into the job, so I know that I will be developing a lot in the next coming months as everything with the magazines start to become second nature.
Aside from my job the move to London has been a significant change. Aside from the water tasting disgusting and everything being expensive I feel that I have settled into the city well.
I have also been heavily involved with the London YouTube community by attending events, gatherings, and Summer in the City. The initial awkwardness of the newness of the city has gone, and I am starting to feel very settled.
I have also finally got used to working a 9-5:30 but the work – work balance between my job and YouTube / my brand has been hard to balance. I may have cracked that now and I’m starting to settle into a pattern.
I have a lot of goals for the next few months that I will share publically when I achieve them, but for now, I am finally in the place I want to be, and I am looking to push on forward.
That’s all for now,
