THE END OF UNIVERSITY | THOUGHTS AND PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
So, I have finished my three years of undergraduate study at the University of Leicester and whilst I have been heads down revising for months, it has taken a while to acknowledge the fact that this is it. This is the end of exams and the end of my University experience all together. In January I had the time to think about that since I was writing my dissertation, realising this was my final year and that I had to work my hardest because I wouldn't get another year to try again. Back then I didn't want to leave, I felt like I wasn't ready at all. I had some ideas of what I wanted to do after uni, but nothing concrete. Fast forward four months till now, and it strangely feels right. It feels that I can leave uni and cherish the memories I have had. I will be sad to leave but I find the prospect of the future quite exciting.
University 100% was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only have I studied my favourite subject for three years, but I have come out of my shell a lot more. I have always and still am to an extent a quiet person. I'm known to be lively once people get to know me more, and university pushed me completely out of my comfort zone. I'm more outgoing in taking opportunities that I would have previously shunned.
It hasn't actually hit me yet with more than a week since I completed my last exam. I'm sure I'll be confronted by the reality of moving onto the next stepping stone of working life on my graduation day.
The plan is to get a part time Summer job, book a trip to Croatia with my boyfriend, and apply for a ski season which I have wanted to do for a long time, and now is the perfect opportunity to do it. Then it'll be on to a grad job after that in April next year. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do, but I guess I've learnt it's ok not to have an idea yet and see where life takes me. It's a bit out of my comfort zone for someone who likes a plan in their life, but I'm learning to take one step at a time and not panic about not knowing what lies ahead.
But for now, it's time for some rest, spending time with friends and not feeling bad for waking up at midday and binge watching Netflix.
Freedom feels great.
