So for the final time next week I head back to London for my third and final year of University. And I’m not sure how this makes me feel, it feels like only two seconds ago I was moving into halls and now I’m about to face my final year. Its so crazy! One of my sisters friends told me the summer before I started that it would go so quickly and fly past, but its actually gone ridiculously quick and now the end is in sight. Below is a picture of me in my first week at uni as a first year, so fresh faced and unaware of the hard slog ahead. Its so weird looking back as I’m a completely different person now. I’ve defiantly grown so much as a person since then, I feel I’m more of an individual now and I feel like I’ve actually got a voice to be head, as I did spent most of my high school life just being the quiet sheep in the background to a big group of friends. I also think uni also teaches you a lot about yourself and about how deal with other people in different situations.
I think the biggest thing that fills me with dread at the moment is the fact that I have no idea what I’m going to do when I’m finished. I’m not on the kind of course where you can go straight into your area for example you study law and then you become a lawyer. I’m studying Dance Performance so I the possibilities of jobs are endless but I don’t know which area to go into. I could teach but I feel I need life experience before I do that, and I’m not sure if I’m good enough to get into a good dance company. It would just be nice to know I had something to go straight into when I’m finished. But that’s a few months away yet so that might all change.
But lets ignore all of those negative things because I am looking forward to some things I the months to come. I can’t wait to start dancing again it been so long my body is screaming out for it. Like I’ve danced in clubs but its not the same as dancing in a big studio to a live musician. I probably wont be able to walk after day one due to DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) but that’s all part of the fun. I’m also looking forward to creative jams where we combine art dance and music together. A jazz band play and there are large sheets of paper for you to doodle and dance on, you end up covered in chalk but its so fun! (That’s where I created the feature image to this blog). It sounds lame but the thing I’m most excited for is seeing my trampolining team again! I joined the team last year, they are all completely nuts but I wouldn’t change them. They are all so supportive and its so lush to be feel like a big group of people is looking out for you. The biggest highlight with my tramps has to be our trip to a competition in Ireland which happened to land on St Patricks Day. Lets just say a lot of alcohol was involved as well as hungover competing. I’m also excited for the competitions this year I really want to win at least a bronze medal to prove I can trampoline.
I guess in conclusion there is both positives and a few negatives to going into my final year. I know they aren’t major things but you know when they seem like it to you?? Its a big year its my final year I will spend education and it could affect me for the rest of my life!!! I guess only time and I will just have to update you when it does.
Thanks for reading.
