Life Update – With Added Disney!

Hey everyone!

How’s it going?

Just dropping in to offer a quick life update, and that is that… I’m now entirely self-employed. Eek.

Thanks to having the contacts needed to be able to step away from my role at Reach PLC, I am now, in fact, a full-time freelance writer.

Frankie and I went to Paris at the start of the month to celebrate my thirtieth birthday at Disneyland, and the more I thought about it the more I just wasn’t creatively fulfilled.

I hit a big personal goal of mine in January to be published over on IGN.com and it got me thinking – what if I could, you know, just write for various outlets and see where it takes me?

Of course, Frankie had a lot of questions, and I couldn’t answer a great deal of them, but we’re figuring things out as we go. It’s been a good year so far, and I’ve been lucky enough to take on some fresh clients in January.

I’m also now writing for Gfinity as a news writer on a contract basis, and it looks to be going well. I’m working full-time from home, which gives me ample opportunity to hit the gym first thing before working through to the evenings.

I’ll be moving into a new office space over the coming weeks, so expect a full post about that when it happens.

In other news, Jackson continues to be adorable…

As does Loki…

Oh, and I’m now officially in my thirties which is insane. Not only did Frankie take me to Disneyland, but I also got to have an amazing night in and an amazing night out with some of my best friends.

Still, here’s to a successful year ahead – one which will hopefully involve moving home!
