Becoming an Adult: My Plan

In a few weeks time I will have completed my course at Oxford. I actually can’t believe how quickly it’s flown by. It feels like only yesterday I was unpacking my bits and bobs into my bedroom! So it’s time to get thinking now. Where do I want to work? What job do I want? Should I move out? So many questions running through my mind but I’ll break it down for the ease of reading.

I don’t plan on starting a proper job until September/October time and who knows where I’m gonna end up. London? Kent? Oxford? All I do know is that I’d like to go into social media marketing as I’ve finally come to the decision after four years that that’s what I want to do.

Until then I’m gonna be working my arse off over summer doing work experience and all sorts. Of course I’ll be running my blog throughout summer and I’m hoping to be posting every other today (but don’t hold me to it). I’m also going to be helping my local pub out behind the bar as well as joining their marketing team for summer which should be insightful. But don’t worry there’s more! I’m also going to be blogging and running the social media for some local boutique shops and helping out a family friend on her strawberry farm – will I ever get some rest, I’m not too sure.

As you can imagine I’m gonna be absolutely pooped over the next few months and maybe I have piled too much on my plate but I won’t know until I start doing everything! One thing is for sure though, and that is that I will continue to blog consistently for the duration of summer.

When it comes down to moving out, I’m very much unsure of what is actually going on. We’re keen to start living independently as soon as we can but with both myself and Toby repaying loans, it’s a bit difficult! And we’ve got no clue where to go anyway!

So there’s a little update on me for anyone who reads this kind of post (aka no one apart from Mum). I hope you’re enjoying my ‘Becoming an Adult’ series if you’re a similar age to me or in a similar situation and stay tuned for another post coming next week!

    I also just graduated so we are in the exact same spot! I'm still trying to figure everything out and have landed in another city about three hours from home with an internship, so time will also tell where I end up for good! Can't wait to keep up with your adventures!! 🙂
