Planning Ahead

Sometimes it's hard for me to keep a constant stream of content running on here, but then again there are sometimes when I feel like I have so many different ideas for posts and so many things to talk about that I don't know where to begin. I have spent this evening writing a couple of different posts that I will publish over the coming week, so keep an eye out for more of my ramblings and attempts at travel advice!

Everyone who knows me knows I love to plan. My diary is my bible and my life, and if it is not in my diary it is not happening. End of. Which is what makes it so much harder when I actually have no idea what I'm going to be doing after my last exam sometime in May. My diary is literally blank. There will be the end of term frivolities in the form of RHUL Summer Ball - which I am actually looking forward to as I've never been. Hopefully, I'll be able to squeeze a holiday in before graduation, but then what. The rest of my life is ahead of me and I don't know what to do with it.

Diary and back up calendar...

Naively I thought coming to university may actually help me find out what I wanted to do with my life, but the only thing it has done is confirm that I actually have no clue. Me, like thousands of other nearly-graduates up and down the country, will be thrown out of university this summer, some will have graduate programmes, some will have jobs lined up, some may be taking a gap year or simply going home for a bit of a break from education, and some, like me, are toying with the idea of doing a masters degree. I've sent applications here, there and everywhere, and I'm fairly confident in most of them as I've got places everywhere I've applied, and waiting to hear back from one. What makes this so much harder is the next decision, where to go? What to do?
The downside for applying to so many different places and different courses is that now I want to do all of them, at the same time I've got my eye on a work placement year in Canada with BUNAC, because who wouldn't want to be able to ski to work? And a six-week trip through southern Africa which would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity but would totally wipe out my savings.

The world is our oyster, kids, the question is, what to do with it now?

Have a good week my loves!

Lots of Love, Kate xxx
