No i’m not pregnant, it’s amazing how many people jump to that conclusion when you tell them you have news, I mean my mam would be thrilled but unfortunately it’s not happening today people.
What I do have to share with you lovely lot however is still just as exciting so here we go … I got a new job! You are looking at (kinda) a soon to be Broadcast Journalist, I know I can’t believe it either.
Some of you may know that I graduated back in 2014, which feels like a life time ago may I add, anyway I worked super hard to get my Multimedia Journalism degree. Fast forward and I’m now getting ready to start my new career which i’ve worked so hard to achieve. Not gonna lie there have been many points over the past five years where I never thought it would happen and gave up on the idea that I would be a journalist and questioned what the frick I was going to do with my life … we’ve all been there though right? But I truly believe if you’re passionate about something and really want it then you can make it happen!
It’s so easy to give up and question yourself, even compare yourself to others who may be achieving their goals quicker than you are, even now I think ‘it shouldn’t have taken me five years to get to this place’ but you have to remember that everyones circumstances are different and so are their journeys!
Am I nervous to start this new job, erm 100%, I did a training week not long ago and every night my anxiety was through the roof but overcoming it just makes you stronger, of course i’m still so excited to see where this will lead in terms of my future.
P.s If anyone has any work outfits inspo or good websites to have a look on then please send them my way because i don’t have a clue what to wear!
