I love London.

Anyone that knows me will tell you how much I love London, and everything about it. I just find it all so fantastic, and I adore how busy and bustling it gets. The shops are 10 times better than the ones here at Southampton, and the atmosphere is just brilliant. I went there for the day yesterday with my friend, Hayley, and fell in love with it even more. There are christmas decorations up in some of the shops, and I honestly felt like I could stay there forever. It's somewhere I really want to live when I've graduated from University, and even though I'm pretty useless with the tube, and trying to understand it all, I think it's something I'd get used too.

I love Covent Garden. I love Topshop. I love the atmosphere. I love the sights. I love that the magazine buildings are there. I love the christmas feeling. I love the decorations. I love the black cabs. I love the tube. I love how you feel part of it all, even if you've only been there once. I love that you'll always bump into someone that's famous/well known. I love that London is the city everyone wants to be a part of.

Being ambitious and knowing where you want to end up in life is incredibly important, and I don't think I could just go through life not knowing what I wanted to be. I have to have some sort of action plan, and a dream to aim towards. I've not always been like this, as when I was at school I really didn't care, but now I've opened my eyes, worked hard and I'm getting there slowly but surely. You've got to go out there and grab every single opportunity with both hands, no matter how small it may be. Climbing the ladder to get to the top is something everyone has to do, and it's great to know that in doing that, you're showing just how passionate and dedicated you really are.

So, in a few years I want to end up working for Company magazine. I don't particularly mind what I do, or what department I'm in, I just know that's where I want to end up. It's a nice fluffy aim, and it isn't something that I won't achieve. Screw the woman that said we shouldn't be reading Company magazine. It's my favourite magazine, and if I want to read it, then I bloody well will.

What are your dreams? Where do you want to end up in a few years? I'd love to know!



  1. Oooh, if you like London do you think you could help me out a bit..? I'm going to London in January and need suggestions on where to go! My post on it is here:

    It'd be much appreciated! I'd love to either be working in Journalism or be a singer in a few years. I think that's what I want to do in life. I hope your aspirations are met & your dreams come true.

  2. I will definitely have a look, and see if I can think of some good places for you to visit!

    Yaaaay, Journalism is good! Tough, but good :) I also hope all of yours come true as well!!
