What are you going to do 2…

So this is the second installment of “What are you going to do” the question that everyone seems to ask everywhere I go the first edition can be found here… Click Me…

So moving on from the last post I have now actually finished university, graduated and I’ve got myself a bar job in a very busy local chain pub (if your British I’m sure you can guess which cheap as chips pub I’m on about)! Now the thing about busy local pubs is that everyone knows everyone so every few people your serving is someone you know! And yepp you’ve guessed it they all ask the question!!! (That dreaded question) Now that I’ve been faced with this question multiple of times now I’ve kind of got the hang of how to answer it!! Your first of all roll your eyes in your head and think what again!! They are asking me again!! Then you calmly take a deep breath and jokingly reply with “I don’t really have a plan for now😂 I’m here at the moment serving you and that’s about as far as I’ve gotten” (This line is also very handy when you’ve got drink and food orders to distract the known customer because then they don’t hang onto the matter). I just kind of laugh it off and move one to the next customer or ask something to do with them! 

But the fact I still have no clue what I am gunna do is really bugging me and getting me down! I just feel lost at the moment I have no aims or goals for the first time in my life and that’s a bit crappy!! Im just kind of aimlessly wondering from day to day! Shift to shift! I’m still constantly looking for better jobs but I am under qualified or don’t have the years of experience they ask for!! And that stresses me out!! (Trying to keep calm is a little issue when I’ve always known what I wanted to do next! Guess I’ve got to wait it out and see what comes along… Just gotta keep plodding on and pray that something comes my way soon!

Thanks for reading.

  1. At least you were lucky enough to get a job! When i graduated I had no money, no job, nothing and that was so stressful too! I hope you’ll find something you want to do soon! 🙂


  2. Hi little Mayfly, don’t despair. Life does rarely follow rigid plans and that is good in itself. Who wants to live life totally after a script.
    You have a job now …with many silly questions :))…., you field them well. Is there any course you can take that will help you get another job for a while whilst the light dawns on you what you really would love to do.
    Ride with it and good luck


  3. I’m in my 40s and still question what I’m going to do…lol
    I think the ultimate thing is “What are you going to do NOW?” Sometimes, I wish I would have lived my life and made decisions about the now, rather than the future…the future is so unpredictable.

    By the way, your hair looks so soft…

  4. I think everyone hates that dreaded question, especially when you’ve just graduated/qualified. I used to hate going back to my home town in fear of bumping into old classmates for the same reason. I have had a career for the last 7 years and I’m at a stage now where I’m undecided on what to do next. Its scary but try not to panic, life has a funny way of working out.
