October REPORT (Reading, Eating, Playing, Obsessing, Recommending, Treating)
Insight into why I'm posting less on Instagram and what I have been using my time for instead.
My September REPORT felt like it was missing something so I’ve decided I’m going to use my REPORT as a chance to catch you up on life as I share less and less about my life on other platforms. Most of the private stuff will be behind a paywall because that’s why I feel more comfortable sharing on here.
October has felt like a proper return to work. My summer was slow and quiet work-wise and anyone who knows me knows I don’t cope very well when I’m bored so to be able to start back on some projects that have been put on hold has given me the energy I have been craving. Isn’t it funny how sometimes doing more can give you more energy and sometimes doing less just ends up making you feel flat? October has also felt like the first month where I’ve had the energy I previously had before my health took a turn and I’m practising gratitude as much as I can and thriving off my renewed health.
This month, I also got to be a judge for the BCreator Influencer Awards. It felt really strange being a judge having never even been nominated or attended the event but an honour nevertheless. These are essentially the only awards ceremony for creators and at one point, I would have known everyone in the room (hypothetically… since I have never been!) but walking around and realising just how many creators there are now, left me feeling a little old and out of touch. I’ll be honest in saying that I definitely stood in the corner of the room on my phone for half an hour until I finally recognised Hannah Witton who did what she does best and introduced me to loads of people who I had heard of but hadn’t interacted with properly. Ended up making a few new friends and touching base with a few old ones and not feeling so lost after all! I give a lot of advice around making new friends but just so you know, I struggle too!
