After thinking about all of the good things that have happened in October, I wanted to summarise the highlights in a blog post. I might actually make this a monthly thing, where I list all of the ‘best bits’ from the whole month. I thought that it would be nice to read about all of the nice things I’ve done in a few years time. Anyway, this is what I got up to in October…
Getting an internship
After spending hours and hours looking at internships, jobs and work experience I’ve finally found an internship that suits me perfectly. I’ve just started a three month internship with Brain Füd, where (in basic terms) I’ll be managing their social media accounts and thinking of new ideas to better their profiles.
At the beginning of the month I went to Southend for a night and a day with my boyfriend. We walked the whole of that huge pier, tried and failed to win a Squirtle from one of those God awful grabby games and won a ridiculous amount of tickets in the amusements. We traded our tickets in for a Secret Life of Pets mug and Batman ball.
Beating Cem at crazy golf
Despite feeling poorly and having a terrible cold, I was the crazy golf champion when we went to Southend. Despite Cem being over-confident and telling me how badly he was going to beat me, I beat him on almost every hole. At one point, he actually lost his golf ball…
Losing to Cem at Topgolf
It turns out that I’m not as amazing at golf as I thought I was. For some reason, I thought that Topgolf would be just as easy as crazy golf. As soon as I picked up my club and looked at all the targets, I knew that I was going to lose this one.
The Girl on the Train
I’ve been waiting a good year for this film so finally getting to see it in the cinema was a long time coming. I couldn’t put the book down so I was excited and nervous to see if the film would live up to my expectations. It did!
My own domain
Another thing that was a long time coming was FINALLY buying my own domain name. In case you haven’t noticed, my blog’s had a little makeover. Instead of cour10eynoonan.wordpress.com, we’re now a more professional http://www.courteneynoonan.com. Yaaaaaay!
Sharing my blog with my family
Why do I feel like everything that’s happened this month has been a long time coming? I wish I’d shared my blog with my family ages ago but that’s just how things work out sometimes.
Going back to uni
Unlike a lot of people I was actually really ready to go back to uni. I had a nice long summer from May until October and worked two jobs in Cornwall. I loved being at home but I missed my uni routine. I’m sure I won’t be saying all this in a few weeks when my assignments start creeping up on me.
The Great British Bakeoff
Although this sounds really bitter, I was absolutely heartbroken when Candice won. I was really rooting the Andrew and cried my eyes out when he lost. Maybe I was a little over-invested in this year’s series…
Going on the London Eye
I saved the best for last. Although I’ve been on the London Eye before, for some reason I had the urge to go on it over the weekend. Cem came with me and although he wasn’t certain that he really wanted to go on, he did and we had a lovely time. However, when we were taking pictures together it took me saying “can you act like you love me in the photo please?” for him to smile in the photos… He’s also terrified of heights so the first two minutes were hell for him. He felt a lot better when he realised that the pods don’t rock side to side like a ferris wheel…
As always, thank you for reading!
