Things have been super busy in the last few months – but when are things ever not busy? When do you hear someone responding to a question about work with ‘Things are just really really quiet‘. I got to a point where I viewed Whatsapps the same way as a client email and found myself completely shying away from any machine which could possibly pass on messages from the outside world. To words of better effect, I had a social media meltdown. So, I packed my bags and went to Italy to see some friends, eat some pasta and leave the UK and 3G behind so life was pretty cushty. After the holiday I joined a brand new company in Bristol where I began a new chapter in my life so that’s all pretty exciting – although it has resulted in some crazy dreams about crossing bridges and being late, (I’ve also realised how much I consult dream dictionary in scenarios like that).

I’ve learnt the value of what I do, the gift of writing a blog post to a new start-up or for a friend is priceless. However, I have also learnt the value of my time. I don’t just linger around at events now unless I’m also there for leisure or unless I’m really invested in the piece I’m writing about. I’m also learning to say no, which means I can focus on the things I really want to.
I am now officially listed as a contributor to Bristol #PROSPECTUS. As a group of writers and photographers the Bristol #PROSPECTUS team is an exciting bunch of people to be around right now and I value the doors Warren has opened for me so far. I have also begun writing for Alturus Magazine which is an online and international platform which was tired of the negative press that still surrounds women even in 2015, Alturus is a place for recognising the talented and admirable work of women across the world. To kick start my time with Alturus, I wrote a piece inspired by Annie and Helen based in Bristol who have setup an amazing pay-as-you-feel business in the heart of Bristol. If there’s one thing you do today, you read this post.

Golden Pulse is a celebration of the things I hold close to my heart, but when I find even an archaic programme on National Geographic entertaining – how do I reel my interests in to maintain a regular audience? Well, I know that everyone always comes to me for running advice on Twitter, I know that my friends always ask me to recommend a new ale or beer and I know that I have now established myself as a writer of art exhibitions and events in Bristol – all of which, are very cool claims to be able to call my own. I want this blog to tell more people what I would say in person which is when I introduce to you my brand new features; the Run Diary and the Ale Diary. Two places where you will be drip-fed inspiration, trends, patterns, fashions, festivals and general updates from me.
So that’s me covered for the last few weeks – tell me how busy you are now!
