5 things I’ve learnt from working in #callcentrelife 

Last month marked my 5th year of working in a call centre environment with my employer. For privacy reasons, I won’t be naming them, but I do want it put on record that I love my job. You could say it’s been a love/hate relationship over the years, but that really always boiled back to the different campaigns rather than the actual job itself. I’ve … Continue reading 5 things I’ve learnt from working in #callcentrelife 

Lower your holiday standards – you don’t have Beyoncé’s budget.

Grief is a strange thing. Its definition states that it is: “A deep and poignant distress caused by or as if by bereavement; or, an unfortunate outcome” I don’t know about you but distress is not even close to describing what I’ve felt since my father passed away.

Cruise Shore-Trips 101: don’t sell your friend to your driver

In 2016, I went on a cruise with 3 of my friends. The cruise itself was the P&O Island Hopper, on the Pacific Dawn, and it took us to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. Port Vila, in Vanuatu, was my favourite stop of the cruise. I’d heard that Vila was really similar to Australia, and I think we went in to that day trip expecting it … Continue reading Cruise Shore-Trips 101: don’t sell your friend to your driver
