A bit of a different post today, as I feel as though my blog isn’t very personal and although it is a travel blog, it’s my travel blog. So, hi, i’m Hannah and this is where I currently am in my life.
I have just graduated from studying history at University (sob) and have moved back home with my parents until I decide what I want to do with my future. I actually found this really hard, after living away for three years and calling another city my home, to coming back and being under the watchful eye of my parents. Not that I don’t get on with my parents, I’m just used to being independent and being able to do what I want, when I want, and all of a sudden there are rules again, like being moaned at when I don’t wash my plates up straight away…
There is also getting used to village life again, after having lived in a big city like Manchester which is fast paced and exciting and has everything you could ever want. In comparison, my village is a little bit (very) boring.
But here I am. I know i’m not the only graduate who out of necessity is forced to move back in with Mum and Dad, but it doesn’t really make things any easier, and that’s okay.
So, what am I going to do about it? My plan for the foreseeable future is not what I initially thought it was going to be. After panic applying to graduate jobs that I didn’t really want, i’ve decided to take a step back and evaluate what I want out of my life. For now, i’m working as a waitress in order to earn some pennies. In the new year, i’m planning on doing some travelling. Where and for how long is not yet decided, but all fingers are pointing towards doing a TEFL qualification. In the meantime, I’m going to continue to look at what jobs are out there and see if I can gain some work experience in order to get a better idea of what I want to do.
If anyone reading this is in a similar boat then please take comfort in the fact that you are not the only one! I put a lot of pressure on myself to know exactly what I want to do and it doesn’t help me decide, it just makes me stressed. So, for the moment i’m enjoying being 21 and not having to worry about all the things that comes with adult life like bills and mortgages and careers.
If any of you have ever done a TEFL course then please let me know what its like! Peace out✌
