Where have I been?




















Okay, so posts like this drive me crazy. I understand that most people probably haven’t noticed my absence, alas, I haven’t written a new blog post for 70+ days. So, whats been happening? I’ll tell you; I have had the most hectic past few months and a lot, and I mean a lot, has happened. The pictures I’ve chosen for this post are a mix of Instagram posts from May to August, not all of them so if you want to see some more snaps check out my Instagram!

In my last ‘update’ post, April In Photos, I was talking about the Videos that I was busy producing for Volunteer Essex, I have no completed these and they are all uploaded and ready for you to watch! I really enjoyed working on these videos, Shiana and myself were lucky enough to follow three super interesting volunteers and their stories.

Continuing on from producing these videos, I have finally started up my own company!! I have always wanted to work for myself, and to have the opportunity to do so straight out of University has been amazing. I am operating under the name tgudgeon|media and have now partnered up with my good friend Adam. With tgudgeon|media I have been producing Promotional Videos, Short Movies and Websites for local and nationwide organisations and charities. It’s all been pretty exciting!

Prior to Adam joining me I have been crazy busy working on a number of exciting projects, including producing a promotional video and website for the Dovecote Art Studio, and filming an exciting new project with the PCC in Chelmsford. If you want to have a look at what I have been doing, or what I am working on follow tgudgeon|media on Twitter, facebook or check out our new website!

I also got my first car (a three door Clio) in May, and my second car (a five door Clio [going up in the world!!]) in August! My first car lasted a total of 88 days before I, shamefully, wrote it off. However, a week after writing it off (last weekend) I got my second car, hurrah! Having a car has opened up so many doors for me and new opportunities, being car-less for a week was a struggle!!

I am still working part time for Chelmsford CVS, and have recently been asked to take on more responsibilities which I am really looking forward to. I have always loved working with the CVS team and I am looking forward to dedicating a bit more of my time to being a part of their day-to-day running.

Unfortunately I didn’t get off to Amsterdam, like I said I would in my previous post, but I did get over to Guernsey to see my beautiful girlfriend, which was wicked. The weather wasn’t the best, but I still had a amazing time exploring a new country that I’ve never visited before, plus 9 days off work was well deserved!

At the end of August I am off to Estonia for 5 days, where we will also be visiting Finland, I cannot wait! Two more countries to cross off the list!!

Back to the blog I have a few posts lined up for your reading privilege! I’ve got a post about Mojo Hair Products that will be up very soon, and a few other fashion and wishlist posts!

Thanks for sticking around, and reading all the way to the end! I hope you are all well, what’ve you been up to?
