First Proper Job!

Hello my Lovelies! 

So it's been a little while and I can only blame the fact that there is NO WIFI here plus rather terrible 3G and signal coverage. It's like I've been unplugged and it's horrifying yet wonderful all at once. It's only fair because I am living and working on a caravan park so I could hardly have expected it to have amazing internet. The campsite is huge and the only place I can get any wifi is where I am while I'm writing this very post. The on-site restaurant. YAY! It certainly feels very surreal to be writing a blog post surrounded by the guests while they eat and drink (it's rather interesting how many people start drinking alcohol in the morning when they're on holiday...) but I'm going to make a habit of it now I've settled in at work.

You may be curious as to what exactly my job entails, so this is just a little post to tell you a bit about my experience. 

My job title is 'Funstar Events Cast' and I still have no idea as to what exactly that means but I roll with it. I knew before I started that the job would be hard and very trying, all jobs in the entertainment industry are, but I felt that I could and would do it. And I'm proving myself very right! My first week was so much fun but I soon felt how much energy it was taking from me and I'm having to train my body in to a daily routine as well as trying to find the time to eat a proper meal. The hours are rather all over the place from what I'm used to so the first few days of early mornings were very difficult but now they're just second nature to me. 

I'm finding the most enjoyable part of my job to be the evenings, when everything is chaotic but it all seems to run smoothly. I spend a lot of my time on the dance floor which means I really get to interact with the kids and hear all about their holidays. I also often take part in 'Go Live' which is a kids game show style thing which involves a whole lot of silliness and hilarity that everyone loves! As well as this I get to do a ridiculous amount of party dances and see some incredible acts including the shows put on by some of the other Funstars. 

The team I work with are all so so lovely and I'd like to give Ellie and Jake a special little mention as they were both so welcoming when I arrived which really helped me to feel like I would fit in. I really hope I'll be able to do this again next summer because it's been such a good job so far and I hate knowing that it'll all be ending again soon. 

It's not a brilliant picture but it's one of very few selfies I have taken recently
Anywho, that'll do for now.

Exciting Things Are Happening!

Hello my Lovelies!

Goodness gracious it's been a while and I do apologise. However, I have many reasons for my lacking in content which I'm here to tell you all about!

In February I auditioned for Haven Holidays to become a Funstar and I was fortunately successful in my audition (even though I had a coughing fit in the middle of my song *cringe*) which led to being put on a waiting list. In recent weeks I was contacted by Haven as I have been given a place on the Funstar team at Presthaven Sands near Prestatyn which is super exciting. I've been trying to re-learn all the party dances and prepare myself for this exciting summer journey but I can't help being a teeny weeny bit nervous... I'll be keeping you all updated with the day to day happenings so you can join me on this brand new experience. 

My YouTube channel is going to be getting a whole lot of fresh attention in the coming weeks with this move as a new location and new things will provide me lots of inspiration! I've recently been fiddling with some editing software to improve the quality of some of the videos. 

I'm going to be posting a whole lot more things soon as I've been doing a fair amount of travelling to different spots in the UK this year. In other words, there's going to be a load of different types of writing coming from me! And you'll be learning more about some of the friends I've made along the way. 

ALSO. if you haven't yet heard or seen, I've started up a project called #everydayissues which is slowly getting under way. My first major topic is university and there's been one video up already on my channel which I've put below or you can click here. If there's something you worry about or would like to hear about in a blog post or video then let me know in the comments or drop me an email which you can find here

As well as this, I've recently been selected for a secret project with a company that I can't talk about however I can tell you I'm super excited about it and I'm thoroughly enjoying taking part. 

On top of ALL this I've recently had my 1st year results and I have passed quite comfortably which means I'm going to be starting my 2nd Year at Chester later this year! I'll be acting as a Hall Warden during this year which I'm really looking forward to, especially as I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help people settle in during Freshers Week.

Love you all!


P.S. Sorry for the lack of pictures but I wouldn't want to spoil things that you'll be hearing about soon enough
