Mirror, mirror, on the wall…

#226: Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?

I wish I could spend longer on today’s prompt, but I’ve been setting up the NG KiDS tent at this years LolliBop festival all day and I’m absolutely exhausted!

So, in short, I think that my blog reveals that I am a very thorough and hard working individual, who has many feathers to my cap (the modern sense of the phrase of course – I haven’t been slaying any enemies recently) and who has enjoyed every element of the blogging challenge I began at the start of the year. I still can’t believe that we’re in our eighth month already, with only *let me do the math* 139 days to go until it’s 2015 and I have to decide on another challenge! How time flies!

#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…

Clean slate

#13: Explore the room you’re in as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Pretend you know nothing. What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?

Well, taking into consideration that I write my weekday blog posts during my lunch break, the room I find myself in is not lived in as such, in the same sense as someone living in a home … there certainly isn’t a bed anywhere to be seen! However, it is evident that during the daylight hours it is very much lived in, with its worn seats and overflowing bookcase. In terms of location, it is situated on the second floor and the windows to the room are inward facing in the fact that the building is curved (imagine a Hula Hoop cut in half) and this room is on the inside, only revealing a generic courtyard-style seating area below and the other side of the building … so this truly could be anywhere! I notice that there are also a lot of magazines everywhere, so either the inhabitant really likes collecting this one specific magazine or this is the birthplace and HQ of this brand. The desk I choose to sit at is very neatly organised, with a very well equipped stationary pot to the right of the mac containing everything a hard worker could possibly need and what seems to be a very useful in-tray. Aside from the items just mentioned, a seemingly brand new notepad only containing a half completed to do list graces the desk, clearly showing the inhabitants dedication and focus to achieve.
