Now We Are Free…

I haven’t blogged in ages, for many reasons.

The main one being coursework – and lots of it. A few 4000 word reports and my 10,000 word dissertation.

As of May 29th 2012, when I was in Greece, but one of my lovely friends handed in my last report – I am free.

I have always been in education. I may moan about it constantly, but three days into ‘real life’ and I am already kind of at a loss as to what to do.

Which leads to the question, what do grown ups do. (The fact that I am using the term grown-up shows that I still think of myself as Peter Pan-esq.)

Some work. Some get married and have children. The brave do all three at once. But what do I do.

I have an Arts Management Degree, well I will after July 25th when I get to wear a silly outfit and receive a piece of paper. But what do I do with it?

Part of me thinks that I won’t end up using it. Sure I will use the fact that I got a degree to my favour, but the specifics of it not so much.

The fact that I have fallen out of love with London at the moment doesn’t help. I hate it. I have been there pretty much 4 years, and it makes me angry. I love my London family, and they make it worth it, but escape is needed. The issue then is that Norfolk hasn’t the best opportunities for arts graduates – I should know, it is partly what I wrote 10,000 words on after all.

So what do I do?

Make a clean break for it and move somewhere completely new?
Suck it up, work for a year and travel?
Potter around in Norfolk, working random jobs and never really do anything?

I need to be in London. I don’t want to be there, and I can’t really afford it either.

So what do I do exactly?

Oh the dilemma….

Answers on a postcard please.
