Congratulations, you’ve graduated. Whether you got a 1st, 2nd or 3rd, whether you had a graduation at all or if it’d been cancelled/postponed due to *you know what*, whether it took you 3 years, 5 years or 7 years, you did it! You are a Graduate! How’s it feel?Continue reading “The Post-Grad Life.”
I haven’t been the most active in posting blog posts recently, but I thought I’d do a post that has been a long time in the pipeline. One thing I have been doing more often in my life is journaling, self-reflection and intention-setting. I’ve journaled for many years now on and off, mainly when someone else has introduced me to it or within a workshop or class I have done, however I started journaling more consistently back at the beginning of Lockdown in March 2020 and it is a habit that I said I’d continue long after the pandemic is over. I personally find it harder to talk and speak out loud about things so my way of getting it ‘off my chest’ or ‘out of my head’ is through writing (if you couldn’t tell!).Continue reading “40 Journal Prompts for All Occasions”

So before I get started, I will say I moved back home from graduating in summer and have not really made much effort with making my room at home look aesthetically pleasing as I am out of the house that much, I barely see it.
Poster Store kindly reached out to me and offered to send me some posters and frames from their website to help decorate my room. In no way am I claiming to be an interior designer and as you will see I didn’t get them all to match, however I do love new additions to my furnishings in my room, especially posters and quotes in which I can look at everyday.Continue reading “It’s Time to Refresh your Walls”
So I know it’s been a while since I posted about the journey to becoming a PT, but it’s also been a while since I posted on my blog in general. Life has taken over! As I discussed in the most recent post ‘I’ve been busy…’ I have started working at a health club near where I live as a Fitness Instructor (this means doing gym inductions, teaching classes and being on the gym floor interacting with the members and maintaining the gym). I’ve had the question so much over the past few months of ‘So what’s next’ as I’m sure a lot of other graduates have had and coming from 4 years of professional dance training, I understand it was expected that I’d come out of dance school and fall straight into a dance job.Continue reading “PT Diaries: The Grind Never Stops.”
Wow, what a month. I haven’t published a blog post on here in over a month, the last post uploaded was the ‘It doesn’t feel real…‘ post and guess what, it still doesn’t. I find myself living in this post-graduation bubble in where I have barely any sense of routine, trying to be as social as I can to catch up with friends and family I haven’t seen or spoken to in a while and also settle back into living at home with my family.Continue reading “I’ve been busy…”
So I’ve finished. I’ve completed my BA Hons Degree, in a global pandemic. As many of you might know I have been studying a degree in Dance Performance at Addict Dance Academy in Leicester for the past 3 years, and it has now come to an end, but because of the pandemic and restrictions, it doesn’t feel real. We have finished filming our graduation virtual show that airs in July but aside from that, no ball dresses, no cap & gown, no holding the scroll and getting our photo taken. YET. Our dance school has been very fortunate to be able to keep going in these uncertain times and the amount of training I’ve managed to get in my final year despite being in a pandemic, has been impressive. It’s now nearing the date of me moving out of my Leicester flat and leaving my student life behind, and I can’t help but feel emotional and reflective of both the past 3 years at Addict and also the past 4 years I’ve lived in Leicester.Continue reading “It doesn’t feel real…”

Back in January 2021, I announced a series on my blog called ‘Small Business Shout-outs‘ in where I would dedicate a whole blog post to a small business who I feel deserve a shout-out and more recognition. I have been very lucky to have known a lot of small businesses that people I know have founded or started up, I hope you all have enjoyed this series and there could be a chance I bring it back again with more small businesses later in the year. This post is going to be a round up of all the small businesses that took part in the series, so get reading!
Make sure you’ve caught up on the very first announcement post: NEW SERIES: Small Business Shout-Outs!Continue reading “Small Business Shout-out Round-up!”
