Hello! It's been a while since I last posted. Having a bunch of uni work and an unforgiving stream of unsuccessful graduate scheme applications has left me uninspired and unmotivated. Quick thanks to everyone who warned me about the final year of uni. You guys were right. It's tough.
I have missed writing a lot though. Well, writing that isn't essays and cover letters. Not that I mind them that much, there's just a lot of fun to be had in writing whatever you want on a blog. So now that I'm here, let's catch up!
Since writing my last post, I caved in and got myself a PS4. I missed playing video games and really wanted to branch out of Nintendo, so I went for it. Also, my laptop is sadly just not good enough when it comes to PC gaming but I am determined to play Undertale at some point. I've mostly been roaming the streets of Victorian London in Assassin's Creed Syndicate and I've also become some kind of post-apocalyptic urban planner/side quest addict in Fallout 4. My play style in that can pretty much be summed up as unconcerned parent. I know, I know, I'm supposed to be looking for my kidnapped son but in a world where there are ships stuck on top of buildings and endless settlements seem to need my help, it's easy to get distracted.
I also started watching Mad Men. I have a horrible attention span when it comes to TV shows. Usually I'll get about 3 episodes in and then completely forget about it but Mad Men has been an exception. I love the story, aesthetics, certain characters (you go, Peggy!) but it also makes me glad I wasn't a woman living back then.
As for the blog, I have some beauty reviews I've been meaning to get around to and I have a few outfits in mind that I'd like to post. However, posting will probably be a bit sporadic. I've been trying to think up new kinds of content I'd like to start writing but I don't really have anything figured out yet. I hope I can make this year a good one for this old blog though.
