People are always surprised to find that I blog whilst working full-time in what can only be described as demanding. I’ve managed to improve my blog quite a bit since starting a full time job, and I set out steps to take to balancing both in this post – but it definitely isn’t as easy as it seems. What you see is the finished product – but behind this, the process comes equipped with a whole load of late nights, constant tiredness and pressure to be extremely organised to stay on your game… So, coming from someone who is living it, what are the realities of being a blogger, when you spend the large majority of your life in a corporate job?
I first went to Amsterdam back in 2014 with a big group from my university halls. It was a last minute trip thrown together for no reason out that ‘why not?’, and I remember it all as a bit of a blur; not only because it was such a huge group of us, but also because it was so long ago. Since I’ve met my boyfriend, we’ve always said that we wanted to go to Amsterdam. So, as a birthday treat, I thought I would surprise him with tickets to the little town. I contemplated between a two or three day break – but remembered from my last visit that although Amsterdam is fun – there’s not tons to do there, and that two days would suffice. The last time I went to Amsterdam it was blisteringly cold and rainy in February, this time the weather was a lot better, making it a lot more enjoyable, and it was nice to get the chance to go back and soak up the unique city.
