Back to University…

Going back to University/College can bring a wave of emotions, not knowing whether you feel happy or sad that you’ve to go back for another semester. I’ve always been more than happy for another semester of college. Even though it brings a lot of stress and late nights doing projects. It also brings lots of memories with friends that will last a lifetime!

This time round is a little different though. If you are in your final year of college you might get what I’m saying in this post. To be honest, I don’t really have an agenda for this post. There is no end point that I really wanted to get to but just thought that it would be good to voice my opinion and see if any of you guys feel the same or if you ever have done in the past. So definitely let me know in the comments if you have!

Anyway, this semester feels different as it is my last semester of college. To think that I’m into fourth year in my course, honestly shocks me whenever I think of it. How? Where on earth did those years go?! Anyone else eve feel that? It brings a mix of emotions heading back. I’m so happy to be back and see everyone, along with the nights out of course. But I’m also happy to be back learning, its so different that way than school is, you’re actually doing something you want to do in the future so it makes it less of a battle, (of course there are still times I would much rather stay in bed though!) But for the most part college if a great experience and one I do enjoy.

That’s what makes this semester so scary. After May, its over… That’s it, no more college again. To be honest, that doesn’t bother me much as I’m ready for the next step and adventure in my life. But its a weird feeling, when you are the oldest year in the college but still feel as young as the new ones just joining haha.

After Graduation…

What makes me nervous is what comes after you graduate. Where I currently live, doesn’t have any opportunities fro me once I graduate so where do I decide to live, or do I just apply to all the jobs no matter where they are and hen just live wherever I get one?! It’s a difficult time, I’ve no idea where the next year will take me in life and also in my career but I am so excited to find out! Not only is it going to be a great new adventure but I’m sure I’ll learn so much about myself in the process.

I know not to worry myself about things like this as they really are out of my control. I’ll keep on just dealing with each day as they come. But it is a daunting thought whenever I do think about it. Who knows where the rest of the year will lead us? I know my life is going to completely change in the next few months, so here’s hoping that its for the better!

So that’s pretty much all I wanted to say in this post. It might be a bit all over the place and I apologise for that. My thoughts are a bit all over the place at the minute, but please God all the exams will go well and then I can worry about getting a job in my desired field! haha

As always I will keep you all updated on my final year in college and any study tips that I have will be coming your way. At the minute I’m only a week in and I’m already sitting down to do a bit of study to keep on top of everything haha, I’m a changed woman this year 😛

Don’t forget to let me know all about you’re experiences in your final year of college and any tips you have for others in their final year. See you all in my next post.

Thank you fro reading,

Lauren,

    I totally get it! It’s my sixth and final year of college and I feel a bit weird about this last semester. I am both excited for what’s next to come and completely terrified at the same time! I try to make the most of this last semester (which will be ending at the end of March for me as I have an internship after) and enjoy everything so that I will leave with amazing memories… after all, that’s also what studies are all about.

    I know it’s scary! I went through the same experience… And then I started studying again, to do my master degree. I now appreciate school time much more than I did before!
    Good luck in your final year:)
