Graduation, One Year On (is that all?!)

… a little more than a year actually!

So I’ve gotten really bad at this whole blogging business. I’m going to try and be better, honest.

It has indeed now been more than a year since graduating from the University of Lincoln, where I achieved a degree in Graphic Design. Having got a job so quickly afterwards, which was surprising with the area I live in, things were looking pretty good, and I must say it has been a roller coaster of a year. Not long after getting my new job and kickstarting my career, I met a wonderful person who, only recently, I’ve gotten engaged to!

In the last six months I’ve been studying a Introductory Certificate in Marketing, which I’m now coming to the end of writing my final assignment for.

Form & Function, unfortunately never made it to the crucial stages. Due to a loss in my family, I found it really hard in juggling my emotions with my new job, AND my own business. For me it has just been put on hold until I feel ready enough to give it another shot. My business partners found it hard to progress also, hence the end of the little business venture. All in all, its quite a shame, but feel it was a the right decision at the time.

But, back to my wonderful news! I have been with Adrian for over a year now, and the proposal came out of no where! Quite romantic actually, a nice walk along the beach and chat about our journey together before popping the question, even though it did rain a bit (it certainly didn’t dampen any spirits!). And now, of course, I have a wedding to plan, which I’m very excited about. The big day won’t be until late 2016, but it hasn’t stopped me gathering ideas!

And of cause, I’ll be designing the invitations myself!
