Hey! So I kinda can’t believe it but I have been out of university for a year now! Complete madness. I can’t believe its been a year since I left London, a year since I last performed on stage and a year since I came home. I’m not complaining it’s been a bloody brilliant year but it’s weird thinking everything I did at uni is now really far behind me. I thought I would compile some of my thoughts about the past year since leaving uni in this blog post.
I think the most difficult thing in the past year has been getting used to family life again. Fitting back into their routines and ways of doing things. I mean I know I came home for every summer but I was always going back again. For the past 3 years I had cooked, went out and did all sorts and never really had to tell anyone what and where I was going. But being back home I have to let them know what I am doing all the time. Which is kind of frustrating. I guess I can’t just be as spontaneous now. Maybe it’s just that bit of freedom that I miss? But I think it extends to not just family life but getting used to life outside of education. I mean I have been in education since I had just turned 4 so that’s a long time depending on a new timetable every September. So I kind of felt weird as it came to September and I had nothing to do. I’m not going to lie but I was really lost for a while and I think it’s only been since the new year that I’ve really got into the swing of being Chloe again.
Up next was of course the dreaded job hunt!! I wont say too much on this one as I have spoken a lot about this in the past few months but will leave this link here The Job Hunt… where I moan about it some more!!
Whilst at uni I made some amazing friends! And so it’s so difficult to not see them everyday as they kind of become your adopted family whilst your at uni. It wasn’t until I left uni that I realised that we all live really far apart and they are all very busy getting on with their lives. I know I am the most rubbish person ever at texting people so I do blame myself for not getting in touch more. I guess I support kind of from a distance by liking everything they do on social media!!
There you go there are a few rough thoughts about the past year. Its been a very up and down year!
Thanks for taking a look.
