Today I saw my group of University friends for what could be the last time this year. Because now it is just a month until I leave for travelling, some of them are going travelling as soon as Wednesday. Some of them have a year left at Uni, some of them have jobs that will make them move away. 

Everyone is splitting up and going their seperate ways, so this will be the last time I’ll see them until at least the start of next year. Which is weird, considering that most of them I have spent 12 hours a day with for the past two years. 

I now have one month left to finalise travelling (assuming that my passport is delivered in time and I don’t have to delay my leaving date) 

The plans are progressing nicely but I still have a lot to do, and my time is restricted a lot by the fact that one of the things I have to do is earn as much money as I possibly can. But, as I always do, I just assume that everything is going to fall nicely into place. 

That’s what I assume will happen RE: career prospects upon my returning from travelling, that something will just show up. I’ve been asked the “so what now” question a lot over the past few days, and my answer has been “just put off growing up for as long as I can!” Which sounds like a pretty good plan to me. 

I expect my “adult life” to begin in January. That seems like a logical beginning. And it’s far enough away that I don’t have to worry about it just yet. 

I tend to live for today, I forget the past and don’t worry about the future. I just enjoy today. And today all I’ve got to worry about is that it’s 10pm and I have to drive home from Cardiff tonight and I’m probably not going to be home before midnight so I might only get 8 hours sleep when I feel like I need about 15. 

Until tomorrow, I’ll avoid counting sheep on the drive home.

    I remember that feeling as if it were yesterday. It’s now been 15 years since I left uni (I went to Univ. reading in the UK)!!!!!!!! I still haven’t made it to adulthood, despite babies, a mortgage and some serious grey hair. I make sure I’m silly at least once every day 😊
