Writing your CV

backtoworkmonday

It’s obviously important to have a good CV. This is what your employer will be looking at before they meet you and you can win them over with your dazzling personality. In this CV you really have to sell yourself and don’t have a lot of words to do it in. I really struggle with writing about myself and I know a lot of other people do too.

When writing my own CV I used a guide I found on the University of Kent’s website (which can be found here) and found it extremely useful, I would highly recommend it for any one struggling to write their own. They have a very easy to follow guide to help you know exactly what to (and what not to) put in your CV, breaking the process down into easy to follow points.

I actually visited the university of Kent when writing my dissertation as well so they have definitely helped me a lot in life, despite never attending their university.  All the staff I dealt with were extremely friendly and useful, they have definitely earned my respect and gratitude.

‘Till next time!

Productivity and Trying to Think Straight

May the 4th be with you!

Yes it’s Starwars day, and it also happens to be a close friends birthday. Haven’t actually bought him anything, but i don’t know what to get.

Any ways. Last weekend i visited a friend, or at least he was a friend, it seems to be becoming something more. But i know what i’m like with relationships so i don’t want to rush into it. But anyways, he took me out on a nice date and we watched Starwars and we get on really well and i have no reason to say no to him, but i’m female and that means i’m silly. Plus i’ve been messed about a lot recently and i’m still living with my ex so i’m not sure whether it would be sensible for me to get into a relationship just yet, despite actually quite wanting one, i can see me messing things up big time. I guess we’ll just see how things go eh.

Today i’ve just been trying to do my dissertation as it’s in for tuesday. I’m panicking and really want it done before this weekend as the same guy is coming to visit and i want to be able to be sociable.

I also received a disk of an acting job a did a few weeks ago! It came back a lot better than i expected and so is going straight on my film reel! I feel like i’m actually doing something for my career finally which is good 🙂

Oh and I’ve decided I should go on Masterchef at some point because i am awesome at cooking. Today it was a Lemony Salmon and Prawn stirfry with ginger and soy sauce and all sorts! Nom! Definitely making that one again!

Anyway, time to get back to the dissertation I guess.

Till next time! Stay Happy!


Missing out on Sunshine

 Yesterday it was RIDICULOUSLY hot. Unfortunately i spent the whole day inside, reading through millions and millions of journals. It got to the point  where i thought my brain had actually melted just a little bit. But at least i think it will help towards my Dissertation, i definitely found quite

a few useful quotes. It guess it was worth the nearly £200 i spent on travel and hotels…But i’ll wait till i get my grade back to decide on that.

Then i set off for what should have been a 4hr train journey. Unfortunately one of my trains got delayed as it was so busy it was hard to fit everyone on, this in turn made me miss my connection and then i had to wait an hour for the next one. 3 trains and 5 1/2 hours later i made it home at around 10:30pm. Shattered.

Yet somehow i got chatting and didn’t end up sleeping till about 2am, as you do, good job i allowed myself my first lie in in weeks today! Lush!

Also, if you remember from a post a few days ago i did a photoshoot, i’ve got the images back (which are dotted around this post). They went straight on facebook and lots of people i haven’t talked to in ages have started commenting on them and talking to me. That could have something to do with the underwear shots…

Surprisingly though, my mum didn’t mind the nakedness. I think she actually liked a few of the shots, it’s my sister who had a slight problem really. haha!

I should probably go pack now though as we’re off to Wales later. I really am getting around a lot lately, country-wise at least.

Till next time! Stay Happy!
