The Future of Me

7 Jun 2016

I'm writing this from the comfort of my family home, lying lazily across the sofa with a large cup of tea, a hot cross bun and my hyperactive dog, while thinking about how great it is that there's a fully stocked fridge just metres away from me. Home is good so far. University is over, my time in Leeds is done and I am back down South for good. My last week was spent partially in Manchester on the Bank Holiday weekend visiting a close friend who I hadn't seen for ages and sampling Gin & Tonics in far too many bars. Bearing in mind that the sunshine didn't seem to reach Leeds until I was stuck indoors revising, so I hadn't actually sat in a beer garden properly until that weekend (!!) so yeah, it was fun. Perhaps too much fun. We got back at 5am. On a Sunday night. Good times.

I also went to Roundhay Park in Leeds which has been on the bucket list for years, so I'll be posting a few pictures of that in the next week or two. On top of daytrips I spent a lot of time shopping for my whole ball outfit because I literally left every fancy item I own at home, because I'm an idiot. I ended up settling on the black dress above which was a last minute French Connection find, but it ended up being perfect for me. I tend to have certain criteria for dresses and with this one I was looking for something long, because at 5ft 9 a lot of dresses are too short for me, and something that could be an investment. Now, what says investment more than a classic black dress?

I also shouldn't forget the few last lunches/coffees I had in Bill's (Fish Finger sandwich hello please be mine forever) and Hotel Chocolat's Roast + Conch which I have been banging on about for ages. Unfortunately, I didn't try any of their cocktails but I did sneak in a salted caramel brownie which was just as tasty as I thought it'd be. I'm sure there's one in London so I guess I'll just have to go back for a chocolate cocktail at some point, what a shame.

Now I'm back and I swear I feel busier than when I was in classes or working in the library for exams. At the moment, I'm beginning to job hunt and I'm currently on the lookout for a Marketing position in London (I know, probably a classic Blogger job). I've worked for a Digital Marketing Agency before and loved it, and any of you who have been reading this blog for a while will know that I've had my heart set on London since forever, so fingers crossed I can find something that suits me. I'm also pretty excited about moving to such a busy, amazing city and meeting a tonne of new people, so I guess that's a good start.

In terms of blogging, I don't want to make any promises and I think we'll just have to see where I go with it. imogenscribbles has always been a hobby for me and I've never wanted it to be anything more, which does mean that I tend to prioritise other things over it. I do have a bit of time on my hands in the next few weeks though, so I might surprise you all with a new design and a billion and one posts, only time will tell...

Now I think I might go and read a couple of my very first posts just to laugh at myself/get emotional at posts about Uni in second year. It feels weird that it's ended, but a good weird...

Lots of love as always,
