Weekly Life Update: Starting my own business & Playing old games

Hey guys! I'm back again with my weekly life update and I feel like I have so much to tell you. So as you may know if you've been reading my blog for a while I have gone back to my old job at the cinema and although I like being with my friends I'm really not earning enough money to live off - and quite frankly it's not what I want to do with my life. I've been applying for so many jobs and in fact I have an interview for something next week but I have always wanted to work for myself and until I can make a success of my blog the only thing I could do to do that is start my own business! To be honest, my Dad actually pitched me the idea for the business before I even thought about starting one and it sounded really interesting so I took it on. I'm really excited about it! I can't tell you much about it right now but I can say that it is an online business and a unique idea. I have hired a really lovely and talented guy to do my website and it's all running smoothly so far! I have also just applied to open a business account which is very grown up.. It's crazy I'm an adult I still feel about 12. So yeah I'm so excited and I hope you're excited for me, wish me luck! I will of course tell you guys about it in more detail when I can :-)

Something else that happened this week was my random craving for playing old games I used to play when I was a kid. I don't know if any of you guys would be interested in this - considering you're reading a beauty blog, but would you want to see a post about all of the old games I used to love? I managed to download this game called Titanic: Adventure out of Time where you would be a detective on the RMS Titanic and talk to people and complete tasks. From what I remembered of the game I thought you had to stop the Titanic from sinking but when I got to the end it still sunk but you just survived it.. Pretty pointless I guess but it was so fun! This sparked a craving for more old games and tried downloading The Simpsons Virtual Springfield. Now, if you've ever played this or even heard of it you need to tell me because I've never met anyone who had this but it was awesome! Unfortunately it didn't work :-( Of course I used to love all of the Rugrats PS1 games! Search for Reptar, Rugrats in Paris and Totally Angelica. Totally Angelica was the BEST. Let me know if you had any of those! I think I might have to purchase them all and play them to satisfy my craving.

Also this week I went to West Midlands Safari Park with my friend Emily. I loved it so much! It's quite far from where I live, well it look about an hour and a half to drive there but it was actually pretty easy to get to. I had never been to a Safari Park before, in fact I don't think I had ever been to a zoo before. One of the animals actually spat at me through my window which was lovely.. and I saw a goat with an underbite. I also got to see my favourite animal - penguinssss! Ahh it was a lovely day out, I recommend going if you haven't been before.

In other news, I had a great night out Friday night for my friend Reece's leaving do. Needless to say I was a little (a lot) worse for wear on Saturday.. Thank God I didn't have work. And I'll be heading out again to party for my 21st this coming Saturday! I'm expecting many Happy Birthday comments ;-)
