I’ve finally decided to go to university.
Those of you who know me will know that I applied for uni during my ‘gap year’, deferred my entry and then ended up not going at all. This was mostly because I had found a job that I really enjoyed and wanted to explore as a career option. Also, to be frank, the idea of earning money held much more interest to me than spending money on a degree that wouldn’t get me anywhere – I had previously applied to study Creative Writing with Theatre Studies.
So why now?
Well, there are a few reasons. I’ve come to a point where I feel a bit stuck; there is no opportunity for me to raise my game and be promoted above others if I don’t specialise or find what I’m truly passionate about. In order to move forward I feel like I need to get the proper qualifications. I have 5 years’ experience working full-time and that will benefit me hugely when I graduate from university as I’ll have the experience and the qualifications to back up any job applications.
When I went to Australia it was because I was so caught up in my little bubble that I was forgetting to live my life. Now that I’ve learned that life can be diverse and interesting, I need to do something that will help me get further with it. After experience, you gain knowledge and learning helps to cement that knowledge.
I don’t think going to university is the be all and end all – I fully realise that I will have to make a huge effort to get into my chosen career field once I leave university and literally start at the bottom to make way up. It’s not a free pass. Honestly? I’m looking forward to it. I want to be challenged and I want to move forward. I’m bored of not using my brain.
So that’s it. My life update.
Perhaps in my next post I’ll talk a little bit more about my chose course and why I’ve chosen it, but for now, I am riding the high of my success – without any apologies.
