Last year, more than any before it, made me realise that you really don’t know what is around the corner or when something will pop up to turn life upside down and potentially change it both instantly and dramatically.
I turn 30 next year. I know – 30! Shit! Its not that I am scared of getting older (although I kinda am) but that there is so much more I wish I had done by now and so much I still want to do.
The last few years have seen many Disney classics, not just remade, but reinvented, thanks to a little help from state of the art CGI, including the likes of Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and most recently The Jungle Book.
Creating a live-action version of an animated Disney film is not entirely new – in 1996 101 Dalmatians was brought to life with an all-star cast and a lot of adorable real life dogs! But what these films are doing now, is taking fairytales, that were a huge part of our childhood and giving them a whole new lease of life with a modern twist.
When I went to university the last thing on my mind was life after it or my career. I had primarily gone as it seemed the natural progression from school. But I actually had no idea what I was working towards, and I spent the majority of the three years searching for direction and an end goal.
At 17 years old as we sit in our Sixth Form block it is extremely difficult to know for sure what we want to with the rest of our lives, which is no small decision when we will potentially spend the following 3 or 4 years and thousands of pounds preparing to do it.
We have all been there. Friday night downing shots of everything and anything we can get our hands on, plus all the wine / Spirits / Cocktails! You name it we are going to drink it because we are invincible and never feel ill from drinking too much! *Next morning* I am never ever ever drinking ever again.. well until the next time and the hangover is but a distant memory.
Never have 3 months gone as fast as they did during my internship at Visit London, but they do say time flies when you are having fun and that is most certainly what I was doing.
I had an amazing time as an Editorial Intern, not only was I working for a fantastic company, but got to have some incredible experiences; being a zookeeper for the day and seeing Beyonce to name a couple. Plus, I got to visit some great places in London, such as Kew Gardens, Buckingham Palace and the London Dungeons… and best of all I got to write about it.
