Whats Next?

Whats Next?

That dreaded question haunts your whole entire university experience! With everyone and I mean everyone is asking you what are your plans after uni, what are you hoping to achieve, have you got a job lined up?

These are the questions that become more prominent as you come to the end of your degree, most of the time you want to respond crying and saying help me! Or just start walking away every time someone asks that question! That’s right just abruptly start walking away in a different direction preferably towards a bar! But like most I’m sure, I have the generic answer of ‘I’m not really sure at the moment but I am just going with the flow’ Which is my hidden answer of saying I have no clue.

But to be honest, this is the first time in my life where I don’t have a plan, I worked hard through school in hopes to get into college, then worked hard there in hopes to get into university, and then worked hard to get my degree! I know that it was all towards to get a job but I have no clue what I want to do for the rest of my life and it’s hard to set goals when you just so unsure. To be honest, this freaked me out, I like to plan, I like to know where I’m going.

I recently watched the commencement speech by Will Ferrell who stated that ‘I was trying to throw as many darts at the dartboard hoping one would eventually stick’ which clicked with me that its ok not to know as long as your trying. Personally, I know my career is in fashion because that is what I love and I love everything that inspires fashion whether its music, art, movies, books etc. But for the first time, I am content at not knowing and I am going to go with the flow.
