Return to Study

My last formal qualifications was A-levels. Do I feel embarrased by that? No not really as I've done some amazing things in my life that I know if I had gone to university that I wouldn't have had the chance to do. Also I went into the theatre industry in a time and to some degree (no pun intended)) it's the same now where a degree doesn't get you anywhere. Theatre Lighting (which I used to do) is all about who you know and what you know. Yes I could have had BA after my name but... would it have actually got me anywhere? Probably not. But why now in my late 30's did I return to study? Firstly my…

Hidden London – Down Street Tube Station

Millions of travellers daily use the London tube network. What millions of travellers perhaps don't realise is the many different tunnels, dissused stations, branch lines and other bit's and pieces of the network still exist. Many of which for one reason or another are now either blocked up, not in use or just left derelict. Some of these stations are left to rot away, others are used for filming such as the Aldwich branch line and others like the Down Street Tunnels are occasionally opened by Hidden London for members of the public to look around them. Their mix of history, architecture and the chance to get to see parts that many people don't see is one of the less…

It's about as far away from other places on my bucket list that are ticked off like New York. The truth is that it is a HUGE continent with a variety of countries and cultures that are worth exploring and discovering. Where did our ancestors come from? It’s an impossible question to answer. While the latest scientific research indicates that modern human life started in South Africa, there is so much more to see in this rich and varied continent.  If you are ready to take a trip through the history of…

Should you buy a holiday home!?

I've always dreamed of Owning a holiday home. Although it's not on my 2020 goals list - if you asked me for my goals for the 20's it would be on there! Only a handful of people will witness that dream becoming a reality. If you’re lucky enough to have the finances to purchase a holiday home, there are several things that you need to consider!!  Unlike purchasing a home in your country, there are certain things that you need to be aware of. These include local laws regarding home buying, the amenities that are nearby and what will happen to the property when you’re away.  If you’re still unsure as to whether or not it’s the right move for…

Quitting Is The New Empowering Tool In Your Career

Did you know that more and more Britons are considering quitting their jobs?  It’s time to change our perception of quitting. Resigning from your current job is often described as a sign of instability or unreliability. Millennials, especially, have been the first generation in the workplace to make quitting a frequent occurrence. Millennials are not afraid to change jobs to the point where their behaviour inspired the concept of job-hopping. Indeed, more than 55% of college graduates choose to change companies within the first two years of being hired. By age 35, a quarter of Millennials in the workforce have had at least five different jobs. In other words, Millennials are comfortable with quitting jobs. And it’s a good thing…
