If We Were Having Coffee // Vol. 6

Here we are again, a little catch up session. I honestly love writing these sorts of posts, it’s like a little diary entry…just public? And as it’s currently very snowy and cold outside I’ve wrapped up in a blanket and got writing.

If we were having coffee…I’d have some sort of spiced apple drink, or mulled wine, it’s Christmas can you blame me.

If we were having coffee…I’d tell you I’ve finished my whole first term of drama school – madddd isn’t it? It’s gone so quickly and I’m definitely in need of some recovery time, but it’s been the best.

If we were having coffee…I wouldn’t stop going on about how excited I am for Christmas, like it’s Christmas, I’ve got my supply of mulled wine and mince pies on the go, got mosttt of my shopping done, the Christmas tunes have been going since November and the fact I get to go home and see everyone makes like 10x better.

If we were having coffee…I’d say how ready I am for 2018, by no means has 2017 been a bad year, but I’ve got my lists and goals ready for the new year and I’m ready to get. shit. done.

If we were having coffee…Talking of 2018, my goals. My main goal is beginning my photography route a bit more, a long side being a performer, my other career path is to do photography. Mainly headshot photography, blogger and influencer shoots and travel photography – yes I understand that’s a weird mix but hey ho. I’m going to seriously save for a camera, get lightroom and all the bits I need, and begin practicing and creating a portfolio for myself – so if you want to be a test dummy for me please hit a girl up.

If we were having coffee…On a more personal note, I put on Twitter a while ago about releasing toxic friendships, and this detox of mine has been quite a big step. It’s honestly not that deep, but I feel the need to say something as there may be people in a similar situation. You aren’t supposed to feel anxious, belittled, controlled or unworthy in a friendship, friends fight yes, but this was manipulation and emotionally strenuous to be in, and consider a very close friendship. So although I didn’t need to tell this person I wasn’t considering them my close friend anymore, I needed to tell myself, and to let myself let go of all the feelings, because it isn’t worth it. So please realize you are worth more than that, and let yourself let go.

If we were having coffee…I’d tell you that I’ve adjusted to living away from home now. I was never particularly homesick, and I am still close to home, however it was weird. But now I’m quite happy with where I’m at. I’ve made my room a bit more homely with some blankets, candles, photos, all that good stuff and I don’t feel so much of a foreigner to this little flat.

If we were having coffee…I’d say I have loads of Christmas themed blog posts planned…just no time for photography which sucks! So I’m hoping to at least get a few of them out but who knows, who knows…

If we were having coffee…I’d tell you I’m already planning my 2018 travels. Now I’m not free all the time travels aren’t as easy. But I’m determined to go somewhere in the summer, so my research has begun and I’m loving it.

A small, but much needed catch up! I hope you enjoyed this little post and I hope to be back real soon with some festive posts!

Until next time,

Em x

    It’s 2018 now, and I hope you get to do some, if not all, of the things you have planned for this year! In 2016, I was so ready for 2017, but now it doesn’t even seem like an entire new year- sometimes I forget it’s January already! My 2017 was a long one, and I got to learn so much about myself, which I talk about in my most recent post on my blog. If we were having coffee, I’d complement you on your hair (I’m not gonna lie here) but I’d also be more than happy to go on a photoshoot with you. Only if we lived closer, hey?

    I love this post and the style of it so much! Such a good way to kind of have a catch up with you without ever even meeting. I also love how raw and honest this post is. 🙌
    Drama school sounds so fun and I’m pretty jealous you’re doing it to be honest. Also, happy to be a test dummy for your photography 😏 I’m not much of a model though so if you want a challenge you know where to find me! Haha xx
