October has been a month of waiting and celebrating. It’s brought good news and small reminders of autumns gone by. I’m adjusting to the cold, slowly. As I anticipate upcoming changes, I’m getting lost in birthday books and looking further ahead. Here are some things I’ve recently enjoyed.
This month I turn 25. I feel good about this quarter-century birthday. As I step firmly into my mid-twenties, I’m reflecting on more lessons learned so far. You can read similar posts from 2016 and 2017 if you like.
1. I’ve changed in many ways over the last ten years. I’m less anxious, more settled. More ambitious in some areas, less so in others.

Hello again. I’m enjoying the familiar comforts of early autumn – well-worn jumpers, crunchy leaves, you know the drill. I’ve been thinking about goals for the last quarter of the year and looking ahead to 2019. Here are a few of my favourite things from this month.
Hello and goodbye, August. Although I’m as ready for new stationery and ankle boots as everyone else on Instagram, I’m pleased to have squeezed in a few more summer reads. Scroll for book recommendations and other favourites from the past month.

According to LinkedIn, my profile is of ‘All Star’ quality. Before you close this tab and think I’m terrible, I have a reason for sharing this information. While I have strong communications experience, a list of endorsed skills, positive recommendations and a first class degree, what LinkedIn won’t tell you, and what I often feel hesitant to admit, is that my career to date has been made up of lots of temporary work.
