It’s funny how everything happens at once! After months and months of feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere, I have been offered not one, but TWO graduate jobs in graphic design! The second, which I was offered yesterday, is a permanent position and is doing the kind of design work I enjoy most, so I have happily accepted the job.
So what does this mean for the blog?
Well unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to keep up my every other day posting schedule I was doing so well at in January. There’s a couple of reasons for this, but the main one is that I need to move. ASAP. This will also be the first time I’ll have a full time job since starting the blog, so that’s going to take some adjustment! Hopefully, I’ll be all settled into my routine by the end of March.
I start my new job the second week of March and am away the week before that, so I’ve gotta start flat hunting and packing up. It’s too far away for me to drive everyday, especially when the motorways clog up. (As they did when I went for my interview, 3 hours of driving turned into 5! Ugh.)
I am over the moon to be starting my career in such a great company and I’m currently excited about moving. However, I went to Reading for the first time yesterday, extremely briefly, and know absolute no-one there which is a bit daunting. If I can’t find somewhere before I go away, I’ll have to stay in a B&B or something for a while whilst I get settled.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to head down there for a couple of days to get to know the place and find some nice areas to house hunt and then I’m sure I’ll be back a few more times to look at some places too.
Here’s to the future!
