– Top 10 Books on my Spring TBR–
It’s hard to believe that Spring is here, especially when we’ve had snow all weekend and everything is confused about what season it even is any more so I haven’t really been doing an awful lot of thinking about what would be on my Spring TBR. I tend to set my TBR month to month and even then I don’t get round to reading some of the books! I do have a bunch of books that I really need to get my little butt into gear and read though so this is the perfect excuse to be held accountable for my promises ;D

September turned out to be a fairly successful month for me. My blogging frequently is increasing, at a snail’s pace but it’s something, but the biggest thing to come out of September was finally getting my result’s for my dissertation and degree! After a long and very painful 28 days, I found out I got a 1st overall for my degree and over 75% for my dissertation. After all the shit that has happened throughout the 3.5 years of my degree, it honestly feels like the best trophy to get a 1st AND survive being at university. I still can’t quite believe it, and I definitely can’t believe that it’s already the 1st day of October! Time flies by too fast, but I like to at least begin the month with a vague outline of what I might be getting up to.

Welcome to my first ever monthly wrap up for June!
I had so many plans of all the blogging I would do over the summer, but unfortunately, June turned out to be a not very fruitful month for blogging. I feel like being involved in not one but two blogs, as a blogging noob, was a bit of an ambitious project as I’ve found it quite difficult to manage to post content for both this blog and corralling the other 3 members of the Happy Homo Book Club every week. Not to mention trying to do this on top of desperately applying for jobs as my last student loan payment begins to drain away, write my dissertation, deal with everyday life, leaving the house every so often, coping with my depression & anxiety, and of course, trying to keep up with reading and gaming! *gasps for breath* But, it is what it is. I’ll use it as a learning experience and try to work around it for next month. So here’s what I *did* manage this month.

Last week I went for an interview with an award-winning research agency for a position as a junior research intern for 3 months, with the high likelihood of a full-time job upon completion. Now, any other graduating students know how invaluable (and rare) well-paid internships are, let alone well-paid internships which aim to hire their interns at the end of the process. Often interns end up getting used as free labour, are expected to work long hours in order to gain much sought after skills including tea-making and photocopying, and after putting their blood, sweat and tears into their internship in the hopes of a job usually end up getting turned out the door at the end so that the organisation/business/corporation can move onto the next desperate graduate.
As a result, I had never really had any interest in doing an internship before, given how exploitative they often are. So what drew me to this one?
