Opportunities

I will be leaving sixth form in roughly a year and when I do so, I will need to pray that I have enough opportunities open to me for me to make a decision with what I wish to do with my life. Luckily, at this moment in time, I have enough open to me to be able to make that decision now. However, I’m not in that boat right now. Even if I was, I’m not sure I would wish to make that decision. It’s not something that would be easy to think about nor would it be practical. However, in a year’s time, I might feel differently (well, I’m going to have to).

The next life stage

I have wanted to go to university for many years, it’s been a dream for me. I have considered myself to be a responsible and mature young person who very much looks forward to living on their own and having that little extra freedom in life. I have been looking forward to it for a while but now I’m not so sure.

I have done 2 university visits so far and I have been widely disappointed. I visited Brighton university (which if you know me well, you will be aware that I have wanted to live in Brighton since I was young) and I hated it. The university was appalling. I was actually recommended by a student to look at a different university for the course I wished to study. The building(s) were also very difficult to navigate and didn’t make much sense at all. I was very upset to the point where I left after just an hour.

Since the visits, I have been considering my options and I’m very lucky to have other options. I can go full time at work, go to university, take on a journalism apprenticeship, take a gap year or work full time on this blog. I mean, the point is that I have lots of ideas and I love the idea of doing any of them the same amount.

I guess, the point I’m trying to make is that I have all these opportunities and I would love to do any of them but there are none in particular which really stick out and scream at me. There is nothing that I want to do more than anything else and from time to time, that bogs me down. However, I shouldn’t be bogged down by it, I’m so lucky to have all these things open to me. Some people aren’t so lucky.

What would you do?

What is the next stage in your life? Maybe, you’re in the same boat as me where you don’t know what to do with yourself after school. Maybe, you’ve just had your last GCSE exam and you’re not sure what you’re doing after summer.

No matter what you’re doing, it’s really important to enjoy it. Even if there are some days where you hate it, make the most of it. If you can make it more fun and enjoyable, you will create more happiness for yourself in the role that you end up in.
