So… I finished college.
I mean, my exams ended in June, but I only just got my results in August. If you’re wondering, I got an A in sociology, a B in psychology and a B in media studies. I’m so incredibly proud of these results considering how awful I felt the academic year was going in the run up to exams. But I did it, I survived college and even managed to get an A!
Even though I’m able to get into university, I decided not to apply for 2017 entry. One of the reasons is because I am so unsure of what I’d want to study. I’m pretty sure if I did apply for the courses I was originally looking at, I’d come out of university in the opposite direction of where I actually want to be. Another reason is that I don’t even know if I want to go to university, I’m not sure if it’s for me.
Despite that, I have been looking at a range of different courses and knuckled it down to three different universities. Still, I’m completely unsure of the whole situation. I have some plans and ideas of what I’d like to do. But as much as I enjoy learning, there’s a part of me that thinks university just isn’t where it’s at. Not for now anyway.
The good thing with university or college courses, is that you can always go back at pretty much any age. So if in a few years if I feel my plans aren’t working out or I figure out that going to university at say, 23, is the best time for me, I can still pursue that.
It’s strange not going back into education though. This is the first year in a very long time that September doesn’t mean back to school, back to college, etc. It’s as though all the free time I wished I had has come all at once and now I’m so overwhelmed by it all I don’t know what to do. However there’s plenty to do and I’ll get round to it all eventually.
