I've got some pretty exciting news to share with you all, and I'm sure you've guessed what it is from the title by now, but I just wanted to touch base on this one. I love discussing things I'm passionate about on my blog - that's what it's really here for - and this is something that I feel so intense about. I've spoken briefly about it here and there, but basically, after months of fruitless searching, I finally landed myself the kind of job I've been dreaming about since I was 15.
I've wanted to go into publishing ever since I really considered a 'career'. I went to university specifically with this in mind, and gained a whole load of relevant experience. 2 years after getting my degree, I've finally sorted my life out and bagged a job that I honestly feel so SO lucky for securing. I'm now an editorial assistant at a publishing house and I feel like I'm living the dream.
Gone are my weekend and evening work hours. Now I can finally be sociable, attend family events and be able to spend time with my boyfriend every evening. It feels like absolute bliss tbh. I'm also loving the work. This is the first job I've ever started where I don't feel completely out of my depth. I actually couldn't be happier with it, and after the tough last few years I've had, I'm feeling really proud of what I've achieved.
