Well, it’s September which means Summer is officially over. As sad as I am to see the end of it, I’m really happy to be getting my routine back. I’m thinking of doing a post on balancing life with school and exams over the next few weeks so hopefully I’ll get that up soon.
Well school is back in full swing like we were never away. The pressure is on this year really because of the Leaving Cert but I’m so determined to not get stressed.
Over the last few days, I’ve heard the word Leaving Cert and points more times than I’ve blinked. There’s so much pressure for people to do well and know what they want to do with their lives. At such a young age, I think it’s so hard for us to know what we want to do with our futures.
I obviously believe in having a plan. Literally I’m the queen of making to do lists and planning ahead. But it can be so difficult to decide what you want to do with your life the second you finish school.
Most people have an idea, most people have some iota of what they want to do. I know myself in a few years I would love to be working with fashion and clothes everyday of my life. At the same time, I’d also love to be working to help people in some way too. I also want to travel so much and see as many places as I can. But who’s to say that’s what’s going to happen. I plan on settling down and doing my best in my leaving cert. Will I go to college? Probably. Is it okay if I don’t? Of course. Will I take time out to travel first? Maybe. So many things are up in the air and I feel so many people feel pressured to have this amazing life plan and goals. It’s a good thing to have goals and have ambitions. It’s healthy. But it’s also so important for these goals to be realistic and completely personal to you.
All I’m saying is no matter if you have no idea what you want to do after school. Don’t worry, don’t stress. Everything happens for a reason and everything works out in the end. I feel it’s important to put happiness first all the time and always enjoy the now and not get too worried about the future.
This was such a ramble of a post but I hope you guys enjoyed it x
