STUDY // Thoughts of a final year student

Monday, 14 September 2015

Hello!
My final year of university is fast approaching and, of course, I cannot stop thinking about it. I like to write lists and so I thought I'd right a list. Soon enough my lists will be of deadlines and to bin the dodgy milk and that's something I'm not looking forward to. Either way, if you are starting to feel this way, let me know!

image1-4

1. YAAAAAAAAAS, one more year till freedom baby.
2. One more year until I can wear fancy workwear from Zara on a daily basis.
3. One more year until I can wear heels and expensive make up on a daily basis.
4. One more year until it's not socially appropriate to spend all day in my PJs.
5. Work won't let me dry shampoo my hair for a week will they?
6. I never want to leave university ever.
7. I am going out 3 times a week. When else am I going to be able to do that?
8. That research project though....
9. I will make more friends. I will join societies.
10. How will I make time for it this year when I didn't this year?
11. I will get the hang of budgeting this year. Want some of my student loan left this time.
12. So that means I can buy 5 coffees a week? Maybe 7?
13. I am the big dog on this campus. All the freshers are going to see me everywhere like 'who is that sassy person. I wish I was them'
14. Oh please I hope no-one sees me when I have no make up on because I have a 9am and went out last night.
15. I only get one more year of student discount. That means I need to start my capsule wardrobe now then. It makes financial sense after all.
16. I'm going to talk to everyone. I will be the most popular person this year.
17. Oh my god, I hate people. 
18. Maybe I could hire a fresher to buy me coffee in the morning and keep my life organised.
19. That requires money. They'll have more money than me. That's not right.
20. I am a young, independent woman who can organize her own life. Nobody can stop me.
21. I am not ready for this. 
22. I could totally do a PhD - who wants a job yet anyway.
23. What is this thing called the gym?
24. The gym costs how much?!
25. I'm going to apply for grad jobs all year. I'll get my dream job.
26. 12 page applications?! I'll work at McDonalds mate.
27. Maybe I should just travel the world? That'll be fun.
28. I have a camera. I'll start a travel blog.
29. What was the point of uni though?
30. Ergh, do I ever have to leave?

Are you starting your final year of uni? Are you excited to leave or never leaving ever? Let me know!

  13. Oh man, this is me at the start of every school year. By the start of second semester, I'm just ready for summer and in no way prepared for all the work that seems to be dumped on us as soon as we're back from break! Hopefully your last year is amazing!

  17. Haha, I can definitely relate to some of this from when I was at university before. Show me this time next year and I'm sure I'll be able to relate to all of it. Though I do REALLY want to do some travelling before I have a mortage and can't afford it. I wish I could just pack a bag, a camera, and go exploring the world and somehow get paid for it. Wishful thinking, eh?

    1. I know right - how do people do it? I really want to do some more travelling. I guess I need to find a job that will accommodate for it!
