9/31 Mirror, mirror, on the wall

9. What are your worst habits

Talk about taking a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror… Not putting clean clothes in my wardrobe straight away and hanging them over the back of my desk chair instead is a bad habit I have. And one that actually really bugs me about me!

Then there’s not being able to give compliments very well. I always feel stupid saying them or am worried that the other person would think I’m being sarcastic or condescending, so end up not giving them at all.

Worrying about the little details. I’ve noticed in all aspects of my life that, since I want to do the best job I possibly can, I will often not consider a job done until all of the little bits have been completed too. Whether it be cleaning the kitchen and I try to clean all of the nooks and crannies, or in my job, if I can’t get a sentence 100% correct I won’t submit it, causing a delay in the workflow.

Four stars

#157: Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.

With her strong desire to progress further in the journalism industry, it is evident throughout the story that Chloe always gives 110%, regardless of the task at hand. Her highly organised nature pays dividends on multiple occasions, especially when faced with juggling three incredibly varied job titles in the one role, with exciting freelance work thrown on top! Her energy and enthusiasm shines brightest when managing events and networking, which inevitably boils down to her raw passion for sharing fascinating stories. Who would have known that this quiet, country girl would evolve into such a strong, independent, knows-what-she-wants kinda girl within the short space of two years?! Who knows where she’ll end up…

FYI: this was quite a challenge, as us Brits are never able to give ourselves compliments, but I really enjoyed writing it. Hopefully people would be interested in investing their time in my story…
