Hey, Hi, Howdy.
So I have to be honest and say this isn’t a proper post, but it was killing me to think I was going to miss a Monday upload!
So here is a sorta kinda post if you will. I’m just going to spew out whatever comes to mind, an update post I guess.
I feel like I’ve been super busy this week and this weekend, just doing boring admin stuff replying to emails, updating stuff, looking for a job, that kind of weekend.
Basically I haven’t been organised! I have so many ideas for posts and I even have images lined up for some of them but a’las Jack is not one to organise his life to make it easy for himself. – bit of third person talk there for you.
So lately I’ve really been looking for a new job! I need a new job desperately. I have been working in retail for almost six years now and I just feel like it is slowly draining my soul…slightly dramatic, but still. I don’t hate my job, its just not what I want to be doing and I feel like I’m wasting my time.
I’m thinking I want to steer towards the career path of digital marketing or PR – something along those lines. I mean I already do a little bit here and there what with collaborating with brands on NO.34 and on Instagram. But its deffo not something I could call my full time job now, nor will it probably ever, let’s be serious here.
The annoying thing is I am so willing to start from the bottom and work my way up in this sort of industry but Newcastle has almost nothing to offer in this career area, I search the job sites on a daily but all they ever seem to have to offer is Uber Driver jobs – I can’t drive. Why you gotta be so boring Newcastle!?
The obvious thing to do would to be, move to London. Yes I know, but how? I don’t get how the HECK people do that. Like how do you pay your first months rent if you haven’t started working yet, where to you look at living and how do you use the tube; I mean I know here in Newcastle we’re lucky to have the ‘Metro’ which is slightly like the tube but way, way, way smaller and way less confusing. All of this then to top it all off who would really hire me? I never went to university, I don’t have particularly good A-levels (to be honest they are terrible) then my GCSE’s weren’t anything to get tattooed on your body about, I’ve technically only ever had one job which has been the same job in retail for six year. I guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself, I know that one day I will be in a job that I love, a job that I actually wake up a get excited to go to. I will. Somebody will say ‘lets hire that kid from Whitley Bay he seems pretty cool’.
In other News I’m not to far from 10,000 followers on instagram, What the actual FUDGE! I can’t believe it, when I do hit 10k it just won’t seem real. I know it’s just a number and it really doesn’t matter; its more about the content you create. But to me it represent all the amazing people I’ve been able to connect with, creators and influencers who have the same sort of visions as me (not Thats so Raven kinda visions, I wish), the people who inspire me on a daily basis, and for me it represent a sort of ‘F.U’ to the people who weren’t all that nice to me growing up in school, the people who now suddenly send me a messages asking ‘Whats up?..’ because they now seen I have a few numbers next to my name. So for me the follower count is a little feel of accomplishment and excitement for the future. So if you follow me, or support me in any way THANK YOU! – I’m not drunk its just late and I don’t know how to write sentences.
Just seven week now till I jet off to the sunny land of Florida! I am soooooo excited to the point of body shaking and fist clenching whenever I think about it. At this point in time the thing I am most excited about it arriving at the airport; sad? I’m sure. But I’ve only ever left the country three times! Three times in my whole life! Now that’s bad – side note to Jack : you need to travel more, like ASAP. Oh and another thing I’m super excited about it having my own luxury sized bathroom! Aaah the bliss, I only realised the other day; I have never NOT shared a bathroom, wherever I’ve been or stayed I have always shared a bathroom, so a whirlpool bath and shower room to myself may spur on a small tear shed.
Hmm, what else…
Recently I had the privilege of working with Access All ASOS again which was super fun; I will add the images below to just make this post a little more colourful. I worked with them to style out their new distressed summer tee, so of course where else would I shoot it other than in a farmer’s field! It was like I said actually really fun and I loved the way the images came out, and ASOS have actually just a couple mins ago posted one of the images on their instagram, whooop.
I’ve actually been able to work with a few brands lately and have some planned for the future. Currently I am collab’ing with Plenish Cleanse testing out their 5:2 cleanse, a post all about my experience and results should be up in another weeks time. It’s so much fun being able to work with brands especially those that I have loved for years, if you do want to work with me just send me a little email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or go through my contact page. Cheeky plug there.
So I guess that’s it guys for my little update, oh apart from letting you know that Finding Dory is AMAZING!
Sorry that this isn’t exactly a proper post, I will try to get a couple out this week because like I said I have some that are virtually ready to go and I guess I will speak to you soon.
I hope you all have a GREAT week!
Bye for now,
