Summertime each year is always a nostalgic, and often bittersweet, time for me as I reminisce over past holidays and the adventures I embarked on in previous years. This summer is no different. Every day my timehop presents a photo or post that reminds me of the amazing things I’ve experienced in my 19 years.
We all need a break once in a while, especially when studying at University consumes so much of our life, but with not much money to spare, finding a holiday for the right price can be problematic.
It’s summer which means it’s time for some travelling! The sunny weather is asking for it itself but since we all are students (usually on a budget haha #studentlife) we can only afford going to certain places.
Graduation is the final “uni party” that you get to go to as a student; a very different party, one where your friends and family all join in to celebrate the fact that you survived the last few years of your life in which you faced a lot of studying, essays, presentations, deadlines, working, laughing, crying, homesickness, some more deadlines and studying.
A topic that has cropped up a few times in conversation recently, is how much everybody wants to travel the world.
When I was younger, I never really thought I’d be the travelling type.
I didn’t expect to feel independent enough to want to book myself a round-the-world plane ticket.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my course and being at University (as you’ve all heard a million times,) but I do wonder when my time will come to explore all of the places that are on my bucket list.
We all know how drastically education has changed over the last couple of years. No one is denying it: in this climate, a university degree is no longer enough to land you that dream job. You need to work harder, prove to employers you have the skills they’re looking for and show your determination through everything you do.
