It’s awkward the transition from University life to the unknown. I mean are you going back to living with your parents?- who will constantly nag you to find a job. OR do you stay in the place your universities at and get a flat and start the boring process of paying the bills? Or maybe travel the world with what’s left of your student overdraft. The thing about this question is that nobody can predict what’s going to happen, especially a student going from the comfort of living with friends to a world which revolves around money, bills and C.V’s. Urghh! That is not a world I want to explore.
So to answer the question- and I really hope I’m not the only one.. is that I’m just not sure. Which direction do I take when I have so many ideas of how I want my life to plan out? I want to live five different lives!! I want to move in with my boyfriend, but then I want to travel, but then I want to move to london but then I want to be a writer in Italy, Ohh and then I want to teach kids in Africa! I’m hoping that it will just hit me, I might be presented with a sign on where to go and what to do.
But… like many other final year students feel I am in LIMBO. – Reminds me of the poem we used to study in GCSE. Limbo, Limbo like me. Ahaha.. Anyway to the point. I don’t know what to do and from the words of wise Baz Luhrmann..
“Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t”.
So I’m sat here in my pj’s avoiding my essay which is due next week feeling prepared to experience the unknown world. Who knows what I will be doing in just a couple of months time. I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason and sometimes it’s fun to figure out things. So to all those final year students who are feeling lost and worried. Your not the only one. But I think life has a plan for you, and you’ll soon discover what your doing and where your meant to be.
