July 3rd

Dear July,
It’s been a decade since I did my first piece of professional writing – the internship that was the beginning of so many things. Isn’t that bizarre? Rather than making me feel old, this realisation has made me feel awfully young. I turn 25 this week. That isn’t a very big number really.
I spent today writing an article about Master Chef. An article which someone is paying me for. And it’s not even the first article that I’ve had published about Master Chef. I’m not even 25 and two different publications have let me write serious articles about a cooking based reality tv show. Life is ridiculous. Ridiculous and also pretty ok.
