Prince’s Trust: Day 33 (Wednesday 17th May 2017)

Hey everybody!

Another short blog post from me today.

I finished the database I started yesterday as promised.

Shuaib joined me here at the publishing house and we had a chat. Low and behold about 10 minutes later we were joined by our (Team Leader) Mel. We had a general catch-up and unsurprisingly Shuaib nearly made her cry with all the good stuff he’s been doing. His supervisor has been surprised by how well he’s coped and the different things he’s done to help out others. Much like all the rest of the group, Shuaib can do anything he puts his mind to.

As I write this at the end of another long day, I’ve no idea what tomorrow has in store for me. But I’m ready for whatever task Ash and Lianne or Andre give me tomorrow.

I can go home feeling happy and fulfilled about what I’ve done today. I’ve taken regular breaks and even fitted in some writing into my lunch break (it was only 250-odd words but every little helps right). As soon as I’m home I’ll be writing more of my novel. These days I wake up feeling awake and ready to smash my target word counts. The Prince’s Trust has changed me more than I thought, and, come to think of it when I wasn’t even aware of it.

Speak soon,

Prince’s Trust: Day 32 (Tuesday 16th May 2017)

Hey everybody!

Just a small blog post for today.

The buses were severely delayed this morning so I walked the whole way. Safe to say I was more than a little soggy when I arrived.

My task today was to start on the database. I had a slight issue which was relatively simple to solve. Ash wasn’t here so I took the initative and asked for help from Microsoft Office Tech Team. Both Ash and I are very happy with the progress I am making on it. As I am over halfway through it, I’ll finish it tomorrow.

Shuaib visited me earlier today albeit briefly. It made for a nice break from the work. Speaking of breaks, I made sure I took two more breaks other than just the lunch break (even that was a working one after I had eaten – I was writing up last weeks blog posts…whoopsies…sorry!).

Speak soon,
