Okay, I’ve graduated from university!! ….now what?

So I have been at University for the past 14 years and it felt at times like it would never end! I was a full time student for 8 years and a part time student for the past 6 years. Reaching the final graduation was a huge deal for me, but the moment I pressed ‘submit’ on the final assignment, it did not feel like I expected it to feel AT ALL. Instead of elation and relief, I felt anxious and fearful!

Evidently this is called a “success hangover”….where people wonder “what next?!” and feel a void, in place of satisfaction. If I still drank alcohol, I would have been out celebrating and would have been able to add ACTUAL hangover to my list of woes, but instead I just sat in the void.

It was almost a full week of feeling low energy and slightly lost, whilst I waited for camera equipment to arrive. For me these days, a week of feeling low is a long time. Then the ideas started to bubble to the surface again.

What I’ve realised is that I can continue living exactly as I have been, only uni assignments will be replaced by projects I set for myself!

So basically, I’ve given myself four assignments so far – and two are due before the end of the financial year!
