Monthly Memo – I’m officially unemployed

Well, this is an awkward one. I bet you thought this monthly memo would be just another life update from quarantine, but really it’s a ‘my first month as an unemployed person’ on top of that! Oh, the joys. Life is weird right now. I’m making noodles to eat while I write this because I have such a hard time wrapping my head around all the little things I need to say. Snacks make it easier. This is your 1 minute warning, if you don’t have a snack, go get one! Then, read on.

Monthly Memo – A new normal

Monthly Memo - arcticsabrina in Tallinn

Hello everyone, happy April! March was a weird one, wasn’t it? Weirdly, this monthly memo is pretty tame! We started the month with an exciting weekend getaway to Northern Europe. A week after we got back to Edinburgh, we were working from home and in isolation. It’s not that I didn’t see it coming… It’s more that I didn’t expect the UK to take it as seriously as it should (and now kind of has). Here’s what in March, and what my goals are for April.

Monthly Memo – I got engaged!

Well, well, well… here we are again for another monthly memo. This one goes out to everyone who is nosy and invested in personal lives (like me!). Lucky for you, February was a massive month for me! I got engaged, I went cat sitting, I quit my job! All equally big things. Here’s what happened in February, and what’s coming in March.

Monthly Memo #5 Christmas CHAOS

So, my Monthly Memo series is my one post a month where I talk about all things me. What’s going on in my personal life, what I’ve been up to for the past month, and where I’m headed next. This is #5. December 2019. Oh where to begin with December. I didn’t post a single blog post in all of December because work and then family absolutely took over. And I loved it. I had my first December working for an agency, my first Scottish Christmas, my first Christmas with Angus’s family, my first Hogmanay in Edinburgh. So many firsts! Busy and magical, that was December.

Monthly Memo #4: Going Back to School

Going back to school….? Kind of. November had a lot going on. I’ve started prepping for Christmas, we’ve got our tree (put it up way too early, let’s not talk about that), we’ve got some decorations and we’ve got some gifts, score! November was also a month of trying to get that work/balance life right. And a month of trying to get plants to grow in the flat and how to make it less grimy and more Instagram. A month of trying to keep the flat clean. Also, it had a few weeks of rabid illness thrown in, and a bit of excitement here in there. Most excitingly, my work went on our away days and I started my new apprenticeship. Don’t worry, I’ll explain this whole brain dump.

Monthly Memo #4 | Moving In With A Boy

Lovers kiss in Montmartre, Paris

October was a hectic and calm month all at once. I started the month off by deciding to move. I started to get more comfortable at doing my new job and, maybe most importantly, I went to Paris. For some reason the move doesn’t feel like the big thing, even though I know it is! It got overshadowed by my need to settle at work, that I just ended up settling in, in a new place (without hardly realising it!). I think that’s why I’ve been tip toeing around talking about the moving in with Angus, but now it’s time to get down to it.
