I prepared a few ideas, I practised my interview a couple of times, and I put some effort into thinking about how I would approach the job.
And I'll be honest, I really wanted that post as editor.
Yesterday, I found out that I didn't get it. Five other girls in my year will be editing the magazine.
Now before I go on, I'd like to explain that the five girls who did get the job are all great. I'm sure they'll produce a really good magazine, and I'm not holding any grudges.
But of course, I am a bit disappointed. Because I know that editing the paper would have been a lot of fun, and I think I would have been pretty good at it.
Nonetheless, after initially being quite down about it all, I've come to terms with not getting the thing I wanted so much. Because I have realised that you can't just cry about stuff when you don't get what you want. You can't just moan and give up, kicking your heels in, like a child. You have to pick yourself up and move on.
In my case, this means focusing on my A Levels, writing Not All About Boys, doing other journalistic projects, and getting serious with my singing (Grade 7 Classical exam relatively soon- ahhh!).
Plenty to be getting on with, anyway!
Just a quick blog today, but I figured that this was something I should share with the NAAB NUTTERs. Apologies for the serious lack of blog posts, I had a weird creative low last week, and I have only just recovered! Expect more blog posts soon, and remember to comment below!
