Good News!

Hello my lovelies. Tonight I am in an exceptionally good mood which is a rarity these days. Let me firstly tell you why I’m on a ‘high’ and then I’m going to quickly tell you what I’ve got going on this week – as something very exciting (but nerve-racking) is happening.

Tonight, I received a direct message from a company telling me they were sending me something out as a treat. As a blogger: This is very exciting news. It’s always lovely to be acknowledged for what you’re doing. Receiving, what we in the blogging community call ‘blogger mail’, is a very rewarding and thrilling moment and so of course I am absolutely ecstatic at the moment.

Another fabulous thing that happened to me to put me in such a fabulous mood is that I won my first giveaway on Twitter and I shall be receiving a very wonderful little prize throughout the week from the lovely @foodandbaker. Speaking of twitter – I just hit 700 followers on my blog account which I have only been using properly for under two months; this is such an amazing achievement for me and this has added to my sensational mood.

Furthermore, my #beechat seems to be continuously growing and growing and receiving such an overwhelming and incredible response every single week. It genuinely means so much to me. Something I created is really doing so remarkably well and I can’t help but beam with pride. Also the #beechat snail mail project has almost 50 people involved and this seems to be becoming more and more popular too. I can’t believe the support and encouragement I have been receiving lately. I’m so grateful.

Now, I guess it’s time to share with you what is going on with me this week. Some of you may (or may not) know that I am starting a college course in September 2016 in the Creative Industries for Proffesional Writing. When I applied, I never truly believed I would be secured a place, but I was. Time has flew in and it really isn’t long until I start. This Thursday: I have been invited along to an ‘open day’ kind of thing. This will allow me the chance to meet my lecturers, previous students who have done this course and possibly some of the people that are going to be starting with me in September. The nerves are real. What if nobody likes me? What if I ain’t good enough? Is everyone else there going to be better than me? Will they be judging me? What if they’re horrible to me or don’t want to talk to me? This is just some of crazy thoughts that have been running through my head since I received the email during the week. I’m extremely nervous about it and getting myself all worked up – probably over nothing – but I can’t help it. So wish me luck guys! I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes, of course.

Until next time
Charlene McElhinney
