Almost a month ago now, it was a misty morning and I was on my way to Manchester – look at all those Ms!
This was only my 3rd time in Manchester, but I’d already developed a little soft spot for the city – great shopping, lovely little cafes, a vibrant atmosphere and creativity too:
Of course I couldn’t waste an opportunity to visit Magma and flick through some magazines, although I never did go back for Hunger magazine – it is so heavy! Wandering around the ‘arts’ quarter, I discovered Fred Aldous, an Aladdin’s cave for creatives.
I’m pretty gutted that I missed out on this place as a student – Lincoln has Ruddocks but it doesn’t quite compare ha
But the adventuring aside, the real reason I headed up north was for an interview! I won’t say where it was (I’m not sure if I’m allowed to/it’s the done thing), but it was a brilliant opportunity which I was really flattered to have been contacted about:
It was my first interview for a junior position so I was pretty terrified but I really enjoyed meeting the people and got some great feedback on my work.
Afterwards, I headed to Sinclairs Oyster Bar, one of the oldest pubs in Manchester:
I met my friend Sanna for a cider and a catch up, discussing our lives as part of ‘Generation Y’. What is a ‘Generation Y’ you say? Well, I’ll explain more later as I’ve decided to write a post about it – it’s pretty relevant to my life as a graduate right now. Check back soon…
