The Musings of a Graduate

Back in May, I completed my degree. Even typing those words seems unbelievable. If you're an OG reader of the blog, you'll know how much I struggled with university, but 4 years and 2 unis later, and I am officially finished.

I always thought that I would feel elated when the day came, finally stepping away from education and into the 'adult' world that I so desperately craved during my uni years. However, instead I was hit with the realisation of feeling deflated and very much lost. Whilst at uni, you don't have to think too much about 'real life', and you can simply focus on your degree. Finishing uni feels how I can only describe as being cast out into the middle of the sea and having to swim back to shore. It feels difficult, scary and like I'm just about keeping my head above the water.

I was offered a graduate job last September, securing one early in the attempt to counteract these feelings of uneasiness and worry. However, good ol' COVID19 decided to throw a spanner in the works and put my job in jeopardy. A global pandemic really does put things into perspective and makes you realise what's important, but equally it doesn't make my feelings of worry about graduate life any less valid.

So, I guess what I'm trying to get at, is that if you're also 2020 graduate, then we really need to cut ourselves some slack. We've finished our degrees amidst a global pandemic, showing incredible resilience in the face of adversity, and sometimes I think that it's easy to forget that. I believe so strongly in the law of attraction, and manifestation and so what will be will be. I'm so sure of it.

Good things are coming, even if life does throw a few curveballs in between (repeats to self x100).
