Recently I have started a work experience job at university, in this job am doing tasks and projects that interest me, and are things I would love to be able to do after I finish university. So I have done it, now when people ask me that dreaded question of,”What do you want to do after University?” I can tell them.
However now my problem is university. While your looking for what you want to do, Uni is perfect, you get to have the perks of not having many teaching hours to go to, but still having to do the work and meet deadlines, as this is good preparation for when you go into a work place. However now I know what I want to do and, to some extent, doing it, its just getting in the way! Having to write assignments or dissertations seem pointless, because I know I won’t have to do that in the future, plus most modules I am doing will have nothing to do with my working future. So why should I have to do them ? I am a person that tries to live by Carpe Diem, seize the day, and doing stuff i don’t need just seems like a waste of valuable time. Is it my fault instead of writing a news piece, or working on my dissertation, I’d rather look at pictures of dogs with hats on?(search and thank me later)
I don’t think it is. In part I think it is the courses fault for not appealing to me, and the other part is that I am bored of being in school! University should be a transition between school and work, not just all school. That is why a lot of universities have placement years, mine does not.
So over the next threeish months all I will be telling myself is, just get on with it, It’s almost over! So Until the end of May wish me luck and ban me from the internet so I get some of this pointless work done !
