Not a very good blogger am I?

Hee hee. Well, I'm making an effort. I keep looking at my blog as if I'm going to make a post but nothing comes out. Right now I'm in a place where I definitely have the time to do it, so I've got no excuse. Bloody hell, its raining again. I was really enjoying the sunny weather last week. Anyway, yeah, I've finished uni now. Just waiting for my results which will be on their way in a week or two :S Scary stuff. And if that goes well, then I'll be graduating on the 13th of July.

So now, I've got to look for jobs. It's really difficult as I'm sure it is for everyone else. Everyone wants experience, bah. Have applied to about 15 so far. Now got to start on some speculative applications. Am really really really wanting to stay in Manchester as I feel more at home here then I ever have anywhere in all my years of traveling and my 17 places I've lived in my almost 21 years. Yes theres another thing. I'm turning 21 on the 26th of this month and have just found out that two of my greatest friends from back home can't come. Its a shame cos I really wanted them to be there and my birthday is on a friday so people won't have work the next day. Ah well, I'm sure it'll turn out fine.

Now, onto Random Quirks. Am in a real improving mood with the shop at the moment. I'm in the process of tweaking photos, and removing the RQ logo watermark from them. Was just told the other day that Etsy don't put pictures with watermarks on the front page! I didn't know this. Really wish I did cos I would have taken them off a long time ago. Well, I'm doing it now, better late than never. I'm also working on the descriptions, shop policies and shipping costs sorted. And also, getting my promoting back on track. I saw such a large increase in hearts since I started promoting and posting in the etsy forums so I must keep it up if I want more sales. 

My sales have always been slow, but I feel that its just cos I haven't put enough work into finding my customers. Because they are out there. I've seen them. In fact, I just sold 2 items to my new bf's sister offline, so its just about finding where these people are and promoting. I have the time now, so I've just got to work at it. You only get back what you put in and all that. 

What's going on around me right now - am sitting in my room in halls watching the rain and waiting for Peanut-breath (my new bf) to arrive.

Congrats on the graduation! I totally understand, everyone wants experience but no one is willing to give us recent grads a chance. I'm still searching for a job in my field myself and I grad last year. But, keep your spirits up, something must be out there for us! Best wishes!
