Freshers Flu Ruined My Week

This past week I’ve been bogged down with the flu, so I haven’t been up to much unfortunately. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t really remember what I’ve been doing this week because of the amount of time I’ve spent in bed. I had my first few days back at University and started to think about my industrial placement and where I might want to have that.


Reading:

Currently Reading:
I’m actually not reading anything at the moment, apart from a group read with my friend for Girls of Paper and Fire. I’ve currently got a poll on my Instagram stories to choose between A Curse so Dark and Lonely and Kingsbane – I just couldn’t choose between them at all.

Finished Reading:
Eve of Man, by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher.
I really started to enjoy it at the start but I feel like the story went downhill. I’m not sure why, but I didn’t click with it completely. I will get my review written up on it soon though, and I reckon my rating will be around 3 stars. I do have a soft spot for this story because I love Giovanna Fletcher and I think that it’s an amazing idea to write a book as a married couple.


Watching:

Unbelievable:
I binge watched this within a day, as it got me well and truly hooked. I resonated with the characters, and just wanted justice for Marie all the way through. It was the sort of premise that meant that I was terrified of the situation even happening to me and was rooting for the police officers to arrest the man. The acting was also amazing! It really brought the whole thing to life.

Criminal, UK:
I’m only one and a half episodes through, but it’s really interesting. I love watching crime shows, and this is a different premise to ones that I’ve seen before – being completely centred around the interviewing process and getting a suspect to crack. Can’t wait to watch more.


Blogging:

I have been ill so it hasn’t been good at all lately, but luckily I have managed to upload a few posts. I want to make sure that I’m getting some more posts up that centre around Public Relations or student life in general, but I’m sure it’ll pick up soon.

  • Does Being an Introvert Matter in PR?

    November 19, 2019 by

    I put off going into the world of studying PR because I though it was an extrovert’s job and I identify more as an introvert. I remember my mum telling me one day that I would have to be more confident to go into that line of work, and while she was right in some… Read more

    November 17, 2019 by

    I was out last night for my work Christmas meal, and I ended up going out for some drinks with work friends.

  • The semiotics of learning about Public Relations early

    November 12, 2019 by

    I had a complete flashback to my Media A Level yesterday when I had a lecture on textual analysis. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see Roland Barthes be mentioned and immediately think about my old media teacher, who first introduced me to the world of media. I never thought about how… Read more
