First Week at New Job – So far so good

Posted by on Nov 30, 2014 in Life

I started on Monday and finished all the way to Friday – yay. That’s not to say that I would not have turned up on certain days if things got a bit hairy. Generally things have gone well. I of course don’t have the same friends that I left behind at Zenith, so it has been a bit lonely as I was speaking to quite a lot of people at Zenith. Now I’ve only got a small handful of people to talk to. I suppose I built the friendships up for the year a half I worked at Zenith, so it will probably take some time to adjust and do a similar thing elsewhere. Actually, one of my worries was not being able to do the job and being generally shit at my job. But just in this first week I can see that I’m probably going to do pretty well. The one thing about this job is that I do have less freedom, but again, I suppose it takes time to build trust at new companies. I was practically one of the few authorities on technical SEO in the office, with the people in PPC or in other teams asking for SEO advice on the whim every so often. I took lead on client calls,...

House Hunting In London – Nightmare

Posted by on Oct 27, 2014 in Life

Where do I begin? Finding a decent place to live in London is unbelievably difficult as you’re literally competing against others for that awesome room that you found on either Spare Room or GumTree. Am I right guys? I viewed a place in Edgware Rd only a week ago and 10 people were viewing that place on the same day as me. How much did that place cost? It cost £700 incl bills and was available as a double...

Tough Mudder Review – Epicness

Posted by on Oct 26, 2014 in Health, Life

Tough Mudder: a 12 mile obstacle/assault course that I had just completed yesterday with a bunch of other people I went with. It was utterly brutal with obstacle after obstacle putting your mental thought to work as to whether you can continue or not. Or in some cases the obstacles would rejuvenate and spur a lot more energy in you to carry on. For example, who would have thought that freezing cold water would have kept your mind off the fact...

Never live with a live in Landlord

Posted by on Sep 17, 2014 in Opinion, Tips & Advice

I’m actually fuming at the moment. I love when I can write a post on here that comes from the heart and soul. So I live with a live in landlord or a resident landlord and it has been an utter nightmare to live in this place. I mean the house is nice, my room is nice and the other flatmate is nice. It’s the landlord that is the problem. The reason I’m writing this blog post at the...

Wandering Around London

Posted by on Sep 13, 2014 in Health

Living in London can be amazing at times – especially if you live in Zone 1, where you can conveniently walk to locations that are full of joy and happiness. Today I went on a little wander around the city after having gone to the gym for around an hour and a half. Before that actually I ran for around 1.9 miles. I didn’t complete the 2 miles because that’s exactly how far I live from my gym. I’m...

When’s the right time to find another job

Posted by on Apr 26, 2014 in Life, Opinion

How do you know when the time’s right to move on and find something that you really find challenging? A colleague of mine very recently was accepted for a job at Twitter. It kind of opens your eyes as to what is available out there when someone doing the same job as you is able to get a nice job like that somewhere. You kind of think, “if she can do that, then maybe it’s possible I can find something...

Work Is Tiring Me Out

Posted by on Apr 2, 2014 in Health

 I seem to be constantly thinking about work and it’s getting quite hectic at work as we’ve won new business. I’m likely not allowed to talk any further than this about work, but I’m certainly feeling the heat. I was reading this BBC article before about stress and it has a useful stress testing tool on there. One of the first questions I answered was, “How often do you find yourself being irritable with friends and family?!” and I...

Dentists are insanely expensive in the UK

Posted by on Feb 20, 2014 in Health

£53… My dentist appointment today cost me £53! That’s crazy. It was for 3 x-rays that cost me £24 (£8 per x-ray) and a general upfront cost of £30. It’s no wonder why us Brits have a bad reputation when it comes to our teeth. I also tried seeing if whether my company provided dental insurance and unfortunately they do not, which sucks as that would have helped. Fortunately, that also covers an additional consultation which I have on...

Opened up a Cash ISA and Credit Card Account

Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in Life

Yep, it’s true. I’ve gone ahead and done it. I have opened myself to debt and a life of monetary despair. I’ll now be poor forever paying back whatever credit I’ve borrowed from the bank using my delicious credit card. On the other hand, I’ve also opened up a Cash ISA and have chucked half of my savings into it. There’s also a special feature on the Lloyds Bank internet banking website that allows you to rename your Cash...

Weight timeline from 16th of December to now

Posted by on Jan 5, 2014 in Health

This post was meant to be all about my fitness and health; however, I’ve had to shift this towards a more distracting matter. It’s to do with living in a house share. I have mentioned this issue in specifics in an article entitled “5 Reasons Why I Hate House Sharing” and this is mainly to do with the internet being so fucking slow. It’s driving me crazy and I’m seriously going to rip the heart of the person in...

New fitness routine at the gym + I now weigh 72kg (wtf!)

Posted by on Dec 22, 2013 in Health

That’s right ladies and gents. I now have a fitness routine that I’ll be doing every time I attend the gym, which will be around 3 – 4 days a week. But before I get into that, I’d like to first mark my weight in this blog post. I now weigh around 72kgs, which is kind of weird in my mind as I weighed 85kgs when I came back to the UK. I’ve somehow lost all of this weight...
