i'm so excited that I just can't hide it.
Wow. Today is an exciting day.
I just found out I'm going to be interning at College Fashion this autumn.
I can hardly breathe I'm so excited.
I know this summer is going to be absolutely crazy now, and I'm going to have to work really hard at balancing work and play, but I'm so unbelievably excited. I've been reading College Fashion since I was about 16, and writing for them has been a dream of mine for years now. I can't believe I'll actually be doing it.
I've had one of those revelations when you realise how hard you've worked. I'm a typically self-deprecating Brit and I'm always putting my achievement down to luck or other people. But I know I've done this myself. I started writing for my University newspaper and realised that my love of shopping and reading Glamour might actually have a career in it. I started reading up on blogs and finally started my blog in December 2009. It's taken a long time to get started, but I'm so proud of it now.
After my blog I followed with pestering Michael to be a writer for Student Fashion Blog, and he later recommended me to write for The Fashion Buzz, which I will be starting soon.
I then started mithering real life magazines, and finally had an opportunity to be a published writer for View magazine.
And now I'm an intern at College Fashion.
I have to admit, I'm very, very proud of myself. I've done an awful lot in 6 months. And for once in my life I'm going to be proud of the fact that I've emailed, and moaned, and mithered, but most of all, I've been dedicated.
And it's all paid off.
And right now it feels amazing.
(I do actually have an outfit post to do but it doesn't feel quite right now!!)
