We’ve all dreamt of getting away with a crime as children. Some adults still do – but most won’t act on those thoughts. You’d hope.
My recurrent dream is quite simple: how I would evade capture if I was on the show Hunted.
Of course, this is the fantasy and surrealist side of my brain talking; if I were to actually be on the show, or ever in a position where I was on the run, I would probably be found within a day or two, so.
But I have a plan, anyway.

Happy Winter Solstice!
A few months back I posted about Summer Solstice celebrations, and so I’ve decided to do the same with the Winter Solstice – as well as a general round up of how 2020 has been for me.

Late to awareness of this campaign (Oxfam, if you need a volunteer Marketing Assistant, I am available), Secondhand September was launched at the start of the month. Countryliving explains it best with their article opener of ‘#SecondHandSeptember is a 30-day campaign run by Oxfam encouraging people across the UK to stop buying new clothes for the month in a bid to curb our fast fashion habits’ (source).

I’m writing this in response to two graduate job applications that I have seen now that require a university degree to apply, as well as for you to stipulate all of your GCSE, AS & A2 results in your application – which, considering the DISASTROUS government grading algorithm during the pandemic, seems even more relevant.
Some of this has been taken directly from the cover letter I wrote whilst applying for one of the jobs – needless to say, I never heard back from the employer. If you’re somehow reading this, Palladian Publishing, consider sending out rejection emails to those unsuccessful; it is infuriating to receive no response from employers, although that often seems to be the norm and understandable considering many jobs have hundreds of applicants, but that doesn’t mean one can’t send out an auto-generated rejection to keep job seekers informed – but that’s a discussion for another time.
