My PR story

I haven't always worked in PR, but it feels like I've always been coming back to it. When I think back to how I started off on this path, I have to put it down to my primary school best friend. We'd known each other since reception class, and when I had a gap in … Continue reading My PR story

Money troubles: a permanent situation?

I got paid yesterday. It was my second pay since starting my job, and the first pay for a full month. Today I checked my bank balance. I'm £1400 overdrawn, and have no savings (unless you count the three pence in my ISA, and I can't say transferring that to my current account hasn't crossed … Continue reading Money troubles: a permanent situation?

Graduate fashion – goodbye, Primark

It’s graduation time, and for me this means it has been a whole year since entering The Real World, looking back and reflecting on what I was doing this time last year.

Are parents the new housemates?

I am one of the graduates in today’s economy that is living a life of uncertainty. After graduation I took the option to go travelling – an option many young people are advised to do in the hope of returning to a more stable economy (though I’d suggest going for considerably longer than I did … Continue reading Are parents the new housemates?
