Alpha, Bravo.. Foxtrot… Hotel…. Sorry, what?

This afternoon I made a call to a company to cancel a subscription, after telling her my postcode she answered me with, seemingly, completely random words.

Ah yes, the phonetic alphabet. That which stumps me for a few moments every time a callcenter employee spews words at me.

She heard my postcode wrong, and in my attempt to correct her I stumbled to find words to represent their initials.

“Egg… James..?”

Yep, egg.

Much better than Echo, in my opinion.

Anyway, this has happened to me a lot, I just can’t learn the phonetic alphabet, therefore I blurt out some very random words.

Falafel.

A word (or more) of advice…

Posted on

What’s the best advice I’ve ever received?

Generally, to try not to worry about things so much – to think about instances as ‘if it’s going to happen, it’ll happen’ rather than wasting my life worrying about whether it will or not.

I’m not going to pretend I’m perfect and I actually use this advice all the time, I’m still a big worrier. But comparing my first year of uni to the second, I was a bit less stressed in the second year. By thinking I can only do my best, and if my best isn’t quite good enough, then there really isn’t much I can do about it, really. And worrying that it wouldn’t be doesn’t help one bit!

A Dolly pearl of wisdom

“The way I see it. if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain” – Dolly Parton.

This thinking has got me through quite a bit, remembering that not everything’s going to be fine and dandy all the time and you do have to work hard to get results.

University, assignments and exams, can cause me a lot of stress – the rain that I must go through to achieve the rainbow of good results and a great future.

I love this quote because it can be related to so many circumstances in life, everyone is bound to be caught in a downpour, but it helps realise that things will be okay in the end, we will see the rainbow 🙂

Whizzkid’s Words

Posted on

Hello                                                                                  : )

As well as blogging on this gorgeous newly-themed site, I will be regularly updating the interwebs with my experiences at my summer work placement.

So ‘av a butchers here – WHIZZKID’S WORDS.

Steph & I having fun during the Cre8ive Wisdom photoshoot!

Hello summer ‘break’

Posted on

What a week!

Sun, camping, drinking, live music, dancing… As well as long queues, disgustingly disgusting toilets and general dirtiness – All part of my amazing first festival experience, Beach Break Live!

As well as enjoying music I already knew well, I found some new loves both on the main stage (such as dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip) and smaller, lesser known bands (I loved Free Peace). I love the buzz I get from watching and listening to pretty much any live music, whether I’m in the center of the crowd singing and dancing or sitting on the grass in the sun watching with a cider!

Next year I would love to go bigger but Beach Break was a great experience – and not so overpriced being a predominantly student festival!

Anyway, it’s Father’s Day tomorrow, and seeing as I’ve managed to drain my bank accounts dry (and that’s the student overdraft, not even real money!), my dad’s taking me for dinner… I feel awful but I’ve always said I’ll treat my family loads when the years of being a skint student pays off & I finally have some decent income!

Monday I start a six-week work placement at Cre8ive Wisdom. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into, being able to put in what I’ve learnt from my first two years of BA (Hons) Communication and Media into practise in the real world!

During this time I need to make a start in researching for next year’s dissertation (big eek!), for which I’m hoping I can gather some useful information/case studies from the placement.

As well as all this, my boyfriend and I are in the process of flat hunting ready to move out of the student shared house before the end of July. Finding time (and money!) for this is proving difficult and stressful, but it is exciting looking for our first own ‘home’ together!

Soo, it’s all busy busy busy but fun and exciting at the same time!   : )

Shall keep y’all posted throughout my placement, etc.
