Hello beautiful people,
October has been both a really great and really shit month for me. Let’s just have a round up of what’s been going on…
This month I found out that I won’t be attending university until January. And that I have to do an IELTS test (which costs 28,000 ksh which is roughly £200) for my visa application even if I’ve studied in English my whole life and I’ve have got an A* in IGCSE English AND I passed my Pearson PTE English exam with flying colours 😒 ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Unfortunately in life, sometimes you just have to do what other people want you to, no matter how stupid, to get what you want.
After I was done being bitter as fuck about the numerous stupid things I have to do just to get a visa to go and study in the UK, I decided that my time at home would be best spent working and not sitting around being depressed ✋ so I got a job! 😀 For the past 2 weeks I have been working with an incredible PR & communications company called Gina Din corporate communications and it’s been pretty damn cool if I do say so myself. We’ve been heading a campaign with the title #unleashpink for breast cancer awareness month & on the 27th the Gina Din foundation held a beautiful tea party in honour of this. With talks from cancer specialists to free breast exams to the most delicious cupcakes I have ever tasted, this was an event to remember!
On Saturday night I decided to go out for Halloween with some friends. I’ve never really gone out on Halloween so this year I thought, why the hell not? We decided that it would probably be way more fun to club hop than to be stuck at one event the whole night, so that’s what we did. We started off the night at a bar in prestige plaza because 250 shilling cocktails, hello? We then headed over to the Halloween party at Juniper which is where we spent most of our night dancing away 😀 My night ended at Mercury lounge where the music was great but it was way too crowded for my anxiety ridden mind to deal with so I went home earlier than everyone else.
p.s: add me on snapchat! debraolum
This Month was also my sister’s birthday month, she turned 22! So to show her love and give her the best birthday present, check out her fashion blog! (http://www.frameambition.com/)
October has been a great month for me (apart from some stupid shit) but as I always say, everything happens for a reason. I will go to university at the right time and I have faith that everything will eventually work out in that department. If it doesn’t…well…then…fuck. Back to the drawing board for me!
How was your October?
Sending you lots of good vibes,
