This week has absolutely disappeared in no time. I’ve been kept busy, well fed, and was taken to Deep Sea World – which rates as a good week normally.
It’s been so varied. I’ve written features for here on Scotcampus, for Futures Fest and for the new city guide, which launches next month. There was even the chance to get in some photography and filming. Inspired by my complete lack of baking skill, I started with a feature on Learning How to Bake (for those who really can’t). Then, after looking at so many different cooking schools it was time to look for a student friendly form of exercise, skipping! Fitness – Just a Hop Skip & Jump Away.
Getting in touch with top Scottish bloggers Thankfifi and Bee Waits for No One for the feature Will Blog for a Job was great fun. There’s so much to learn about turning what’s normally a bit of a hobby into a full time job. It’s so tempting to try yourself, and their top tips help make a career that’s still pretty mysterious, that little bit more accessible.
Along similar lines coming up with a series of questions for When I Grow Up… sent me right back to when I was facing the end of high school and was still feeling a bit lost about all the options on offer.
The highlight of the week was going through to Deep Sea World for Conor’s Bucket List shark dive which will be in the February issue of the magazine. Besides the sheer fear in his face, there was so much to film and take photos of. Plus, who doesn’t love Deep Sea World for what’s technically a day at work.
Still to come, there’s a couple of features; one to help you cheat if this year’s Oscar films come up in conversation, and another on the top 10 cafes that are open late, for those nights when you fancy heading out the house but not going ‘out out’.
It’s been great being here this week, there’s been so much freedom to come up with feature ideas and get stuck into all the different parts of the magazine while there’s so much going on.
