I just keep my head down, run hard and am always surprised when I look up and see where I am. – Grant

In my (only) post back in January, I outlined some of the goals I wanted to achieve for the year. I used the new year to push myself to tick off as many goals as I could.

One of the biggest goals was to obtain work experience in the form of an internship or year out placement. I partially achieved this back in Easter when I did experience with Diva although not 100% related to my course, I got an insight in working in a professional business environment and even did some hands-on web development which is always a plus!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I have had my fair share of rejections and failures. Everything was looking bleak but despite this, my determination to get a year out placement never wavered. Of course, support from my friends, family, centres at university and experience from the countless interview I’ve had helped me stay positive tremendously.

An unexpected trip

Tweeting on Monday, “This week is the week” I hadn’t realised that it was going to turn upside down real fast.

Travel-wise, anyway.

It all started on Tuesday, I was planning to meet a friend and wanted to take some pictures for the day, so I went to get my camera where I usually put in a drawer with other “everyday” things. Opening it, I was mortified to find that everything was soaking wet. I kept some letters, notes, camera, my passport and usually my bullet journal (but I was using it so thankfully it wasn’t in there at the time.)
