The whole hacking scandel has got me engrossed. It is one of those historic times
in which people will look back in fascination on all the details. My mother did
warn me over ten years ago that Mr Murdoch has far too much power for one man
(Oprah could own the world and it would be OK).
The fact that someone who has wielded such power has been called into question is
refreshing to say the least. However, it does remind me how some people of wealth and status
tend to live my different laws to a lot of us. Translate any major story like this to what
one may refer to “lower” terms. Quite simply heads would role and action would be immediate.
Such is not the case for certain individuals in government, police and media. I fear that not
everyone in this saga will get their just desserts (Cameron). I just hope that Murdoch is not allowed to
go quietly to simply return in a year and take BSKYB. It’s his plan, trust me.
T4 and Lovebox
I felt the above topics helped me put things into perspective so began with them.
My last couple of event jobs have been celeb fests. 1st, T4 on the beach
took place in Weston Super Mare. The line up included N Dubz, Example and Alexis Jordan
who gave me a high five after she remembered me from another job, (sideways looks from
other members of staff). People allowed free gifts also included the cast of 3 of Braitains biggest
exports. It was only a matter of time before I met the cast of made in Chelsea.
If I concentrate, people have a habit of gravitating toward me.
A pity it doesn’t work when I attempt the opposite!
Brands gifting included Millies Cookies where you could ice your own
and the blackberry tablet! I was well jel!
So 3000 photos later, my next job was to be backstage for two days at
Lovebox festival in Victoria Park. This was the second event I have covered
where Jessie J has pulled out. Perhaps I should take the hint. People think when
I cover these events it’s all really glam. Trust me the weather was crap and the days were long as.
Don’t get me wrong it was worth it, but don’t get it twisted! It was quite nice covering
backstage where I didn’t recognise most of the acts. Festivals are not my personal
cup of tea so I am unaware of a lot of acts on the circuit. Working for River Island,
a pop-up tent was my office for two days. Guests included Debbie Harry and Beth Ditto.
I am currently working on my July to-do list. I won’t share the details.
I decided to push myself and career harder and thought that
posting goal lists (a well as general errands) would help me
to visualise my goals. I will let you know how it goes!
