15,500 Words Later...


It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog. 15,500 words is a lot of words to write in the space of a month, so you guys can see that my lack of blog-ness is somewhat justified. But now that I have a free minute or two, I’ll let you guys know about what I’ve been doing that isn’t assignment related.

I intended on writing a blog a few weeks ago because I got to meet...”royalty”. For those of you that haven’t read my “about me” section, you may not know that I work in the o2 arena in merchandising. I worked at the finals of the ATP World Championships Tournament (by the way, Federer could’ve EASILY finished the match within two sets!), and I got the chance to walk around the arena during the very short intermission. During this time, I have to do laps up and down the stairs of the arena to attempt to sell programs to the public. When I got to the bottom of one of the sets of stairs, I met...PIPPA MIDDLETON! OK I’m sure that there are people that won’t know her by her name, but rather by her Royal Wedding showing...

I had a bit of time to talk to her and make sure that she was OK. We’ve been told from the training in my job that anyone can go to customer services and give reviews on our performance. Therefore, I used this as my...excuse to talk to her for a little bit. She was sweet if not reserved, but who can blame her? She’s the sister-in-law to Prince William!

Unfortunately, I have no concrete evidence of this- my job doesn’t allow for me to freak out when in the prescence of “royalty” or any celebrity in fact. This could lead to me being wished well in my future endeavours...

Speaking of future endeavours, my hunt for an internship is still a work in progress. I have worked hard to apply, but  I’ve yet to receive any responses. I’m hoping that someone out there actually responds in a way that isn’t automated.  Here’s to hoping that something comes up during the Christmas period!
