I've just finished my second year of university (BA English & Creative Writing) and am currently waiting for results. Also attempting to find a summer job, with very little luck so far. Doesn't help that the only experience I have is cleaning and I'm trying to find a job that's not cleaning so I can get some proper experience interacting with people, but due to my lack of experience interacting with people nowhere will hire me
Unsure what I want to do in the long term. Thinking of moving to Darlington (Oop North) as housing is cheap, I've got family up there, there are twice as many jobs as there are anywhere here in Wales, and it's got one of the lowest crime rates in the UK so I won't have to worry too much about getting stabbed or burgled or anything.
My parents are planning on selling the house which we've lived in for 16 years after I finish uni, which will be weird, as we've lived in it since it was built and my parents even did a lot of the work on it themselves. The plus side to this, though, is that they're planning on downsizing, and my mum has said they may use the extra money to buy a cheap house for me somewhere and I'll pay them back for it over the course of several years. Trouble is, as much as that'd be really helpful and practical, I'd feel massively guilty for not doing the whole “going off on my own and renting somewhere and living on a mattress and struggling to afford food for a couple of years” thing that a lot of people have to do, and there's a part of me that feels like it'd be unfair on everyone else for me to just have things handed to me by my parents.
Oh well. Anyway, sorry, I'm rambling. I'll probably continue the rambliness in Confessions.
In terms of other stuff, I have no idea what job I want to go on and do; I do know that I really want to explore Europe; and I'm definitely going to try harder in uni next year. It's looking likely I've got a 2:1 this year, but I really want to try and bring it up to a 1st
