Overcoming Post University Blues

9/19/2014


The summer is drawing to a close. Everyone seems to be returning back to university but you. The past three years have been a time of constant adjustment but now you're living back with your family, looking for work, for your next big adventure and you're not really sure what you should be adjusting too...

For years and years life is forever looking forwards. Working towards the next set of exams, from GCSEs to A levels to a degree. To summer holidays and part time jobs. To blissful social time. To chilling in bed all day delightfully watching netflix to your hearts content. So right now it's pretty weird. There are so many options to pursue and so much free time, it's difficult to know what to do with yourself. To feel uplifted and driven. We're simply blessed with too much choice and too much freedom. 

And it's rough. That's the honest truth of it. Ironic I know. And so I've been pondering on ways to boost through this down, uncertain little time. Because in comparison to the rest of forever, it's hardly anything. Life is always looking forward but it's also for the now. And so, I think it's time to make plans, set goals and do little things that make you happy right now as well as those that are more long term/the future. Just because a degree is nicely tucked under your belt does not mean we have to sink off into the old school 'you're stuck in one job forever and that's the end of that' mentality. Now is the time to take advantage of that education, all that free time and to simply be with the people who mean the most to you.
