I was out last night for my work Christmas meal, and I ended up going out for some drinks with work friends. I ended up having such a great time and it released some of the tension I was feeling from my assignments. It’s really important to make sure that you are releasing stress and taking some time out for you – it always genuinely surprises me the uplifting feeling I get after spending some time being social.

My friend bought me this for my birthday, and I can’t wait to get around to it. I have heard nothing but good reviews about this and everyone seems to be raving about it.
I’m at episode 2 currently and I’m hooked already. Looking at criminology and sociology to think about minds of killers and why they act the way they do – is just right up my street. It’s so interesting and I just want to binge it all.

For the 4th week in a row now my posts have been mentioned on #thisweekinpr’s blog post, in the top #prstudent section! I’m really excited to be carrying on with that section of my blog as well, because it encourages me to expand the PR section.
