Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Greetings from an English 21-year-old (recent) BA Architecture graduate/survivor. Currently working as an architectural assistant. I adore Morrissey, tea, classic films, reading, poetry, autumn, wine and Italy. I have too many improbable ambitions.

Today I got to spend half the day at work doing hand-drawing. I love my job.

Finished my second day of work today. Things are already happening so fast - I’ve felt more useful (I like to think) and have been given more responsibility than I thought I would have at this point, and the people are really great, friendly and helpful. I have a feeling I will enjoy this year, though I can tell already that it’ll be a steep learning curve!

I’ve been offered a job as an architectural assistant!!!

After 2 and a half months of job hunting and interview-going, I’ve been offered a job for an interview I attended only yesterday. It’s only a small practice, but this means I’ll get to have some really great, varied, hands-on experience which will help me transform from creative-hand-drawing-bullshitter into real-life-architect!

…it still hasn’t quite sunk in!!

I’m getting a little tired of feeling anxious about the future most of the time.

Two interviews in two days, and an initial telephone interview this morning. Talk about hitting the ground running straight after a holiday!

Back today from sailing the wonderful Baltic sea… England looking as miserable as ever… Going to be reliving probably the best holiday I’ve been on with some pictures over the next few days.

Well, I’m off on a cruise until the 13th to see a part of Europe I’ve never seen before - Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia - and even St. Petersburg, Russia. Very exciting. Take care, followers, see you in 12 days with some hopefully more exciting posts.

Going to my first ever wedding tomorrow, and in typical Jess fashion I only just bought a gift today. Now I’m semi-organised I can at least look forward to it…

I’ve had another two interview offers come through, which was exciting yesterday… but one of them has offered me nearly half the salary that the first guys did, and the other one is quite a bit further away than I had hoped for.

So, my graduation was yesterday…

Interview went well; I think I would really enjoy working there, but they’ve got a couple more interviews to do, so I’ll try not to get my hopes up.

Nothing like a bit of rambling to take one’s mind off job hunting.

Some pictures from my unit’s part in the end-of-year exhibition this year. The whole thing looked great and we get to keep the frames(!)
