I’m also totally guilty of not posting anything for what seems like ageees and there is no excuse as to why I’ve slacked with it. But anyway…
My summer has definitely been strange so far, from just missing out on the internship that I wanted to landing some fun writing experience for The Money Charity. Going into my third year of university is kind of scary and I wanted to some extra stuff this summer. After not getting what I wanted straight away I felt like it wouldn’t happen and I’d have a boring summer because of it. But with a bit of patience and hard work, this led me to getting some other experience that I couldn’t have foreseen. And sometimes having a bit of time off is actually quite nice to do what I want for once.
I suppose it’s about not giving up and accepting that even if it was something that you really wanted, it didn’t happen because something better is up next. I kind of believe that one now. And anyway, everything that you do, no matter if you didn’t get the end result that you were after, the experience will have given you something.
I decided that maybe I didn’t necessarily need to be driven by money and so I volunteered at a local writing centre. It was fun, I wasn’t getting paid, but for once that didn’t matter. So summer seems the perfect opportunity to do stuff that like that.
Plus it's left me some time to cook which I don't have much time for usually - me and my friend made the easiest banana cake ever and it was pretty yummy!
