The Weekend Blog
28th September 2014
I calculated that this university year I will only be in a grand total of 64 days, and already I have done 4 days (two day weeks, ftw!).
Everything is moving too quickly, and I don’t even know what to do with my life once I graduate. It seems like everyone else on my course knows exactly what they will be doing next year, whether it be teacher training, a masters course or going straight into work. Me? I have no idea.
I know that this academic year is going to be tough, and I feel like it might scare me away from further study. But then I’m not sure if I’m ready to go into a full-time job just yet. Well, that’s if I can get a full-time job. If you’ve ever seen
this article then you will know that it doesn’t look good for geographers.
I keep saying that I will just take on these life challenges as they reach me, but really I hate not having a plan.
I’ve actually been a little homesick this week, which is a real rarity. Perhaps it’s the pressure of third year and all the uncertainty that surrounds it, but I feel like I need to go home for a few days to forget about things. So next weekend I’m going back to Shropshire to see my parents and hopefully to put university and my future to the back of my mind.
Overall, I’ve had an okay week but a great weekend.
Yesterday I went to Manchester to a photography workshop/blogger meet up run by Joe Blogs Network. I had a fantastic day meeting new bloggers and taking photographs around the city, not to mention the free lunch and freebies.
It was kind of weird saying “I’m Holly from empfire.info” out loud because I’ve never had to introduce myself like that before, but it felt great. I’m planning on sharing my pictures and review of the day on Tuesday, so stay tuned. The photo above is just a quick snippet of what’s to come.
