BEHIND THE DESK #11 - I'm Back!! 21st, Graduating Uni, Moving to Melbourne+ New Posting Schedule

Well it sure has been a HOT MINUTE since I last posted!

I have so much to fill you in on about what I've been doing while away from the screen and am unbelievably EXCITED to be right back in the swing of blogging.

New posting schedule

Let's kick off with that I guess. The new posting schedule is Monday's and Thursday's so you will have fresh new content twice a week, with a few added articles thrown in here and there. I have some incredible new makeup releases to review and some more in-depth articles I have had in the works for a while - I can't wait for you to read them!

I celebrated my 21st in LA and Vegas

I organized a very last minute trip to celebrate my 21st in America, splitting my time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas for a couple of weeks at the end of November! I had such an incredible time going to live sporting games, stand up comedy (Adam Sandler and David Spade were epic), pub crawls and immersing myself once again in the amazing American food and entertainment culture. I had such an incredible time and can't wait to go back. However, now that I have done the USA 3 times in the past 1.5 years, I might do Europe next and give the US a bit of a break from me.

I graduated University!

At the end of last year I graduated with my Bachelor of Journalism, majoring in Marketing. I am one of those people who really enjoying studying and continuing learning so I already have plans to go back and get my honours and my masters. I'm looking into focusing on advertising and marketing so we will see that takes me. I currently work within the marketing industry so expanding my studies in this field makes a lot of sense for me + I have a huge interest in it so that always helps with motivation to study.

Moving to Melbourne

I have been offered a job in Melbourne and am currently going through a huge decision making process. I have a lot of pros and cons for both options of moving to Melbourne or staying in Brisbane so I am weighing up the options. It would be a huge and great change for me but also a very expensive exercise since Melbourne rent is out of control. I also love my current job so I'm not jumping at the chance to leave for a role I'm not sure I would enjoy. Then again, it could be worth the risk and I won't know unless I try. I'll keep you posted.

That's all from me for now, although so much more has happened since I last updated you guys these are the main things. 21, back from a holiday in the US, graduated from Uni and potentially moving to Melbourne is where I'm at.

Glad you're back but I'm guess you are no longer engaged?
