February Missing

11 Mar

I haven’t posted for over half a month now, as I have been so busy trying to do the biggest things I wanted to achieve this year. February has been a very busy and stressful month for me. I have been trying to accomplish all my 2013 goals just after my January Blues and I think I am really getting there!

Making a Sale

After listing so many of my clothes on eBay last year and constantly knocking down the prices I still never made a sale. Not one.

I then came across an ASOS Marketplace flyer advertising that I could make unlimited listings every month for free and pay only when I sell. So I listed all my items after hours of photo taking. One day, to my surprise I got an email from ASOS notifying me that someone had just made me an offer below my asking price. I accepted straight away!

I have 20 items in my collection and if you’re one of my blog followers and are interested in purchasing 2 or more of my products, comment below for an exclusive Promo Code!

If you, like me, have been trying to sell but have never succeeded, I will try to do a photo-tips post as well as P&P post so that you can make the first impression as well as a lasting impression with your shop!

Getting a Job/Internship 

After reading countless ‘How to Create a Winning CV’ books for nearly a year and being unsuccessful in job interviews I landed myself into the perfect part time job in February. What’s more impressive was that I got the interview the night after sending off the application and got the job the day after the interview! This was one of my biggest accomplishments and just what I needed as I was brought to the point of believing myself to be completely unemployable when I have so much to give.

Passing my Driving Test

This has been one of the most emotional roller-coasters of my life. I had failed countless driving tests for small reasons like…

– “parking too far away from the curb” and in the next test…

– “parking too close to the curb” and in another test…

– “not looking long enough in the rear-view mirror”…etc etc etc.

These are the most ridiculous reasons to fail me, especially because my general driving and manoeuvres were said to be POLISHED to PERFECTION. I had spend exactly 12 months failing tests for small reasons whilst others were passing with more faults than mine. I went home crying over my fail sheets showing only 1 minor and 1 so-called “serious”. This has led me to realise how these driving tests are only a matter of LUCK. This is very unfair. Just as I was on the point of taking legal action I had passed my 6th test, tears of relief over-whelmed me and I have since looked at my life so differently. This may sound like a bit too much for a ‘driving test’ but this test meant so much to me, so much so that it was having a detrimental effect on other parts of my life. I am now so appreciative of the smallest things.

I am therefore going to be doing a post about my whole experience and everything that I have learnt from it, if you are in the same position as me I hope that you could benefit from it.
