It’s been a while since I was on the blog and I’m sorry! A lot has happened recently so I wanted to come back and share with you all some things I’ve been going through the past few months.
Let’s start with the bad and get to the good. Recently it’s become really apparent that life isn’t forever (as much as I wish they would create some injection where we could live forever) and as someone who let’s say, is not exactly at one with the idea of death and freaks out at the thought of it usually ending in tears, I’ve felt its really been circling around a bit close to home recently. Now I don’t want to go into detail but in this time I’ve found myself praying a lot. Being a Buddhist I’ve never been that religious – going temple twice a year used to be the max I would do and even then I would complain about the early start. It’s crazy to think how much going to temple and praying relaxes me and gives me peace of mind these days, sometimes it’s just nice for it to be you, your thoughts and the Big Man whoever that is for you. I never thought I would really be one of those people who would rely on religion for this so that’s something new I’ve learnt about myself. That’s a nice revelation for a pretty shit situation but hey ho, c’est la vie.
Another real bummer not quite on the same level but still resulted in me crying hysterically for about 40 minutes was me tripping up the stairs, falling in what felt like slow motion and landing on my shins whilst my coffee landed all over my MacBook…..words cannot describe my emotions at that point so I won’t try but considering I am still paying off my laptop on my credit card, it was pretty fucking heartbreaking. So that’s why everything has been a bit slow on the blog and vlogs as although my boyfriend kindly lent me his laptop, it sadly is too high tech for all the gadgets and gizmos I have (aka I need a USB port) but now I’m back and ready to get back into it.
On the brighter side of life, some exciting news is that I have recently got a job! There’s times in life when you’re looking for something and it takes a while but finally, the perfect job fell into my life. I’m freelancing as a marketing and pr executive at a fragrance and skincare company and the hours and the company is just perfect for this next stage of my life. If you had told me a year or two ago that I would be working remotely, I would’ve laughed in your face and so would my friends, mainly because my spirit animal is a sloth and also because I didn’t know anything different than a 9 to 5. Times like these put complaining about the instagram algorithm and long days I’ve committed to blogging totally worth it as had I not kept working on it, I would never have been able to secure jobs like this. So just a small pat on the back and let’s see what the future brings with this!
The final super exciting thing I wanted to share with you all is that I have finally secured my first press stay at a hotel in Malta! I have been working super hard with the hope to work more closely with hotels in London and abroad and I am so excited to announce this has taken its first baby steps and hopefully its the first of many! So stay tuned over on my instagram to see live photos from this trip with @camillamount on my instagram.
That’s a round up of what has basically been going on with my life at the moment. Its definitely changed the pace of everything but I’m loving being much busier and having the chance to explore new opportunities in the next few months.
As always if you have any questions or want to know more, just comment below or leave me a dm on IG as I love hearing from you guys!
