So I know I haven’t posted in quite a while and that is totally down to the sheer load of coursework I have been working my way through for uni but at last I feel I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have just submitted my dissertation - probably the longest document I will ever write in my life - and now I only have one piece of coursework left! My research for my dissertation was based on the phenomenon of the fashion influencer and it was actually really interesting to write.
So I haven’t quite graduated as the title of this post may have suggested (my last coursework assignment is due at the start of May) but as I’m coming to the end of my uni experience I have had time to reflect on the past couple of years and of course think about the future.
I don’t know how I expected to feel as I was finishing uni but no one told me the worries it would bring. When I began to think about graduating I began to panic that I didn't have my whole life planned out. When you imagine graduating you think of feeling relief and joy that coursework and exams are over forever and you imagine you will have some amazing job lined up since you have worked so hard for however many years. But for me this is definitely not the case. I have loved being at uni and I am sad and anxious that it is coming to an end and I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels like this. However, slowly but surely I am learning that it is okay not to have your whole life figured out.
