My degree is complete. Its over, all deadlines met, all exams attended, all brain cells exhausted. So, what to do? This is the question that faces thousands of young adults every year. And the sad reality is, most will settle down because its the 'done thing.' Forgive the British turn of phrase, but it is true; most people these days will settle down, get a full time job, get married, have kids and this will be their life. Not that I have a problem with this, I admire those who are able to go straight from full time education to a full time job, who seem to know what to do with their lives and have a plan. But for me, my attention span has been stretched beyond its streching point, I've had enough of bending to societies rules and restraints. It is time for me, and others like me, to spread our wings and go and explore the world and its wonders. Note: this is not to say that we wont settle down one day, its just today is not that day.
I've already become relatively well traveled, having visited 4 out of the 7 continents already (not in their entirety but at least one country from each of the four continents) in my 21 years on this Earth. However, my past travels have only proven to fuel my need for further future travels, seeing me visiting 3 seperate countries within an 8 month period this year. I have found recently as well, that my need to try new activities and experience new things has hightened, with it going so far as for me to make a "Bucket List" of sorts, listing all the places and things I want to visit and do......safe to say it is a fairly long list. Long and short of it is that, I want to do EVERYTHING. I'm not ready to sit down and do the same thing day in and day out for the next 50 years. I want to wake up each morning not knowing what the day will bring! I plan to make memories and take pictures, to spend my money educating myself as to how the rest of the world lives and to enjoy the beauty of this world I was lucky enough to be born into.
So, for those of you who have ever had doubts, or are not knowing what to do, who want more than to just work at the same job everyday.....GO OUT AND ENJOY LIFE. Don't let people say no, don't live your life by what you can't do or can't afford, but stretch yourself, your comfort zones and grab life by the horns! I'll see you all at the airport <3
