This week has been insanely busy! I had the privilege to undertake work experience at Shooting Star, a lovely PR/Marketing company in Lincoln, and offer my assistance at an Open Day at the University of Lincoln.
I will be writing a blog feature on my time at Shooting Star, but I can say that I had the most enjoyable time with the team, who all welcomed me openly and were so friendly. I leant so much and it has definitely progressed my ambition to be a part of the PR world.
The Open Day was a great experience to be able to see young students consider their future – that was me not that long ago! I surprised myself with how open and confident I was with talking to people about my time at the Uni and offering my assistance for tours and answering questions.
Not surprisingly, I haven’t been able to find loads of time to catch up on reading. So that means I am still slowly progressing through ‘The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo’. I am hoping to start picking it up more and make some progress – to see my thoughts as I’m reading, check out my Goodreads!
I’ve finally finished watching the third season of Jessica Jones! I think people have been quite harsh on it with their reviews, because I really enjoyed it and thought the storyline captured some really interesting moral questions. I can’t wait to write my thoughts on it.
Again, I have been busy so my blogs have been sparse this week. I’m looking forward to getting right back into it and dedicating time to getting some scheduled.
