As you may have noticed (or not...maybe I'm flattering myself), I've not been around much lately. I should think the folks over at :iconwe-write-to-escape: aren't chuffed about the unwelcomed new members piling up and I'm a truly sorry! Life has happened as life is want to do. I figured I'd do an update journal to keep you guys in the loop and then I can slowly reintegrate myself into dA society!

First of all, I GOT THE INTERNSHIP I TOLD YOU ABOUT. I'm so excited and even though I've only been at it a few weeks I've learned so much. Everyone is really nice. I'm loving it so much; working in the book industry has always been something I wanted to do and having the opportunity is like a dream come true. As you all know, I've been very low over the last year or so, but doing something like this is really helping. I feel like I'm actually doing something with my life.

Secondly, I've been arranging my modules for September and fingers crossed, I'll be on the children's literature course. I got my grade back from my exam/assignments cumulative score on Friday and I got a Distinction which is the equivalent of a university first or in layman's terms, an A! The first year of the course was tough; I was sick through a lot of it. I passed but I know I didn't do as well as I could, so - even thoguh this year has been really tough too - seeing what I could achieve has really boosted my confidence.

I'm also Nano-ing right now and you can read my story here --->…. I try and update regularly but mostly I'm just trying to generate words so I can actually have a manuscript with which to do something. Also, my Pinterest inspiration board for that story is here --->… For those of you who aren't aware, I'm now actively pursuing a career in writing. I've always wanted to publish but never had the confidence. I know I need work but I'm on the road.

I've also been working a lot at the centre where I teach and I went to Rome which was AMAZING OH MY GOSH I JUST WANT TO TRAVEL ALL THE TIME. My Italian is rubbish (parla poco italiano???) but I had so much fun! I ate real Italian pizza and went to the Coliseum ARGGHHHH.

In unhappy news, I found out I'm possible allergic to dairy. I've cut it out of my diet at the recommendation of an allergen specialist and after seven days can already see the difference. Which is annoying because I've had twenty three years to really developing a love for cheese, chocolate and a million other things I am now not allowed.

Every had soya cheese?? It tastes and smells like rotting feet.

Anyway to summarise, am I busy? YES. Am I going to be back soon? Hopefully. Do I miss you all? Of course. :heart:

Tell me in the comments what you're up to, and also what dairy product you couldn't live without!!

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

This Is for u (Smile) Read till the end it's adorable! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and I asked,"why?"...​The angel said,"angels don't watch over angels!" Twenty angels arThis Is for u (Smile) Read till the end it's adorable! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and I asked,"why?"...​The angel said,"angels don't watch over angels!" Twenty angels are in your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine of them are playing and one is reading this message. God has seen you struggling with some things and god says its over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in god send this to 14 friends including me, if I don't get it back I guess I'm not one of them. As soon as you get 5 replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you... Not joking. Pass this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested and god is going to fix two big things tonight in your favor. If you believe in god drop everything and pass it on TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. DON'T BREAK THIS. SEND THIS TO 14 FRIENDS IN 10 MINUTES IT'S NOT THAT HARD. WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE
