I'm back!

Hello hello! I've been away for quite a while, haven't I? I feel like I have a very good reason though, and that reason is this beast:

All summer long I have been working on this (this might be a lie; in reality it was more like thinking I was working but not actually getting a lot done) but now all 17,176 words have been typed, bound and officially handed in and I am free from academic work forever! 

It's a very strange feeling; last night I expected to be elated and relieved that it was all over but instead I felt that it was very anticlimactic. I did a Masters because I was interested in the subject, of course, and I love learning, but I also thought that I would be able to work out what exactly it is I want to do with my life as well and maybe even have a job lined up when I had finished. Sadly, the last two things have not happened and I feel kind of deflated that I am still without any future plans, which is not how I thought it would go.

In reality I barely applied for any jobs while I was studying so of course it wasn't likely I would have one by now! I think I was a little bit idealistic in how easy I thought things were going to be so I am going to start making real efforts now and get myself out into the world somehow!
So just before writing this I applied for an internship which sounds fun and I'm going to make a real effort to find and apply for jobs and generally be extremely positive and proactive and actually do things instead of being silly and getting sad about them instead.

I also want to try and be a much better blogger too; I was never very consistent even before starting my thesis but I really do love writing so I'm going to make a big effort and try and make this a better experience for me and for you. I also want to have a little design overhaul (nothing too drastic, I am so not creative!) as well.

So this turned out to be a lot longer and more confessional than I first expected but hey. I hope soon I'll have good career-based news to report but until then I'll try and be a much better blogger than I am now. Although I am just about to start watching Breaking Bad so we'll have to see...

  1. It's lovely to see you back blogging - I'm now following you via bloglovin!

    Congratulations on finishing your Masters, it's such a huge achievement you must be so proud of yourself, I would be if it were me! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you on the job front, I'm sure that something will come your way very soon! <3
