ramblings of a girl who wants to travel the world

Sisters in Belgium!

I know I haven’t posted in a while but the last couple of weeks have been pretty busy for me. On Monday, after 10 hours of travelling, my sister and I returned home from our first trip to Belgium. Despite the pretty disappointing weather, we had an amazing time and visited quite a few places in the short time we were there.

Could someone employ me please? (Includes mini review of ‘Always the Bridesmaid’ by Lindsey Kelk.)

After graduating from University in July, I wanted to come home and spend the remainder of my summer with my family and friends in Derry before heading back over to Kent to look for a full time job. I can safely say, that after being home and being unemployed for almost five weeks now, I do not understand how people don’t work. Don’t get me wrong, the first couple of weeks were great to have some time off and be able to relax and catch up with everyone but now I am literally bored silly, I need something else to do with my days other than reading and watching TV.

Just a Girl Standing in Front of a Boy

‘My love story may not be the sort you read about in books or see in films. But when it comes to my own life, you can keep your fabulous highs and I’ll happily steer clear of the terrible lows.’

Dream A Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher. [REVIEW w/spoilers]

Dream A Little Dream 

“Because no one ever really finds the person of their dreams…do they?”

5 Star Rating

What can I say, from the moment I started reading this book – I adored it! It had everything – humour, romance, heartache and an incredibly charming protagonist, with whom the reader could easily relate.

Finally a bit of sunshine!

Growing up in Ireland, having 3 good days of summer is the norm but this year has been particularly bad. I went to the cinema on Tuesday to see Ant Man (which was amazing, btw) and had to wear a hoodie and a raincoat – two things that shouldn’t be a necessity in August.

This year, I’m going to be a summer reader

Summer is a time for reading and relaxing but I’ve never been one of those people who always has to have a book to read. Don’t get me wrong, when I find a book I like, I’ll get really into it and won’t be able to put it down but that happens very rarely for me. I always put it down to not having any time to read but really, it’s just because I’d rather lie in bed binge watching TV series’ on Netflix.

I’m a graduate, now what?

So the first few months of 2015 have been pretty stressful for me – between managing essays and dissertations, having a part-time job and trying to figure out what the hell I’m going to do when I graduate. I have also been wrestling with the question: Do I even want to be a journalist? And for the moment, I think the answer is no. When I first realised this I thought ‘Shit! What am I going to do now, have I just wasted 3 years of my life?’ but then I took to the interwebs and found that only 1 in 5 journalism students actually go into journalism and that 80% of journalism graduates find employment within 6 months of graduating so that made me feel a little better about myself.
