So, combining the excitement of starting a new job, whilst working on a Research Project for my dissertation has been crazy, but in just over a month I'll have finished my degree, handed in my dissertation alongside everything else, and that will be it. What I have worked towards for the past 3 years *should* be achieved.
The idea of graduating has been something which I've looked forward to finishing since the start of my second year. I took an unconventional route for studying, stayed at home, and taught a uni-franchised course nearby. If I were starting over again would I take this route? I'm not sure, but either way its been fun - I'd like to turn around here and say "its been a journey", but alas, that is a bit X-Factor-y and I'm not sure its been that much of a journey, an experience however for sure.
Then comes the next stage for me. The future. I have not long sent out my 10,000th tweet on Twitter and chose to send a quote from Abraham Lincoln:
"The best way to predict the future is to create it".This I think sums up how I'm feeling about the next stage for me. My job so far is great, and travelling into the city is fine. I need to explore there more, and I'm ready to leave my little town behind and go towards the big bright lights! I'm not going to predict the future, but I'm going to make it happen. The end of May signifies the end of my studies (for now at least), and I will have some time to reflect, enjoy my day to day life, and make that all important change; leaving home, and moving into the city!
It's safe to say I can't wait, and now it seems within reaching distance, but that doesn't mean there isn't loads to do beforehand.
On your marks, get set, go!
