Hey friends, the blogging vibes have come my way and I’m once again trying to get into the habits of a good blogger, student, person, and human in general.
May is a big month for me because I have seven exams!!! I’m also turning the big 21 at the end of May too (after my exams thankfully).
Seeing as it is the first day of May, I thought it be nice to have a chat and talk about where I am in life, and what my goals are for the future (no just goals for May, but in general). I read somewhere that writing down goals makes you 40% more likely to actually succeed in said goals. While I’m sure that stat referred to physically writing goals down on paper, I felt it could work electronically as well.
First of all, it’s probably best to talk about my plans as a blogger, seeing as anyone who will bother to read this post will most likely be someone else who also has a blog.
One of the main things with this blog, is that I am planning in the future to take my blog to the next level. I feel like I am currently at a stalemate.
I don’t spend enough time on this blog yet I feel regretful that I didn’t research other servers when first setting up this blog.
For this reason, I often struggle to write on this blog as I feel I might be better off starting from scratch elsewhere. Yet I feel as if I should be writing. I also don’t want to jump the gun and invest in a paid plan on another site when I may never have any guarantee of being able to commit to such a plan.
I guess the next stalemate in my life would be my education.
For anyone who doesn’t know, I am currently doing an undergrad in Politics and History, which I adore. I love both of my subjects and I have a year left in my actual degree before I graduate. However I have one question in particular which has been haunting me for the past few months, which everyone I know has been asking me (friends and family included).
“Are you doing a masters?”
I have no clue about that question.
What masters would I even do if I decide to do a masters?
As said above, I love my subjects, but, I question the necessity of further education in either area. It could be a bad investment. The majority of students in my areas tend to join the civil service where a masters is not currently a requirement (nor is a undergrad degree, although I’m sure both would look nice on a CV.).
It is to my opinion that I need to both work and travel, before I decide whether or not a masters is actually the right decision for me. Masters in my speciality in Ireland can cost up to ten grand per year which is money I do not have (like most students who work before they can pay for their masters).
I also feel like I need a break from education. I am burnt out. I need to foster my brain in other areas.
My Summer plans
The next topic which I think I should be my summer plans…
This summer like all of my summers since I was 17, I shall be working fulltime for 40 hours a week. I love working. I am a hard worker and I love my job as I get to learn practical skills which will look good on my CV (I run the Saturday shift currently at my job).
Last year I learnt how to use realex for lapsed payments and how to set up direct debits which I think will boast my skill set (could benefit the blog in the future). I would love to learn more about the business side of my company this summer. I also can’t wait to get closer to the other employees.
I also plan a lot of self-improvement this year. I will buying a flyfit gym membership this summer as I hope to get more active so that in forty years, I have prevented health problems my parents have. I also am currently attempting to learn Irish so that is fun.
What are your plans for the summer and for May? Let me know!!
