Still not sure what language I will write in, as I am comfortable with English, but I know several of my readers would prefer Norwegian.
After all I have just finished a bachelor of Arts degree, in English literature, meaning that English comes quite naturally to me, but I know that is not for everyone. Yet I somehow like to think that the fact that I do write in English is sort of my trademark?
Anyway, a few of you have asked me what my plans are now and what kind of jobs I am looking for etc.
it is hard to say, right now I am looking for everything and anything, I need something to do as sitting home alone is well depressing, trust me I’ve tried it a few times.
Finishing my degree wasn’t quite how I expected it to be, 3 years ago I choose English because it was my favorite subject in school and I was good at it. It was easy and I was hoping that by the time those three years had passed I knew which direction I was heading in, where my life was going to take me.
Here I am three years older and just as clueless as that spring day I made the decision of going after my friend to new zealand.
some of you know I’ve studied one year in New Zealand as well, which was amazing.
then my decisions led me elsewhere, Wolverhampton, strange right?
Since I was a wee lass (little girl) my dream was to study in the UK, as a child the dream was becoming an actress, but that changed after doing drama in school. I still however wish I’d done a joint English degree, with drama or maybe Creative writing.
But what is done is done, and hopefully that goes for my bachelor too.
You see I have yet to get my dissertation grade (dissertation is very similar to the bachelor assignments you have to write in Norway when finishing. 10-12.000 words on a topic)
My point was that it was my childhood dream who took me away from the beautiful land down under to the not as beautiful but just as charming island in Europe.
I have loved and hated my 2 years here, I’ve had so many ups and downs here that I feel like a Yoyo.
my grades dropped drastically when I moved here, the course was a lot harder and making friends proved to be difficult when you’re doing the semesters backwards, everyone I started with graduated in september, but I will get to graduate with everyone I did my 2nd half of the course with this september (hopefully)
So what now?
to be completely honest, I have no idea, a job would be nice, but the aftermath of the creditcrunch is still upon us, might be lucky one day.
But untill then I will spend time at the gym and looking, there’s a friend of mine looking for work too, so I don’t feel as lonely in my quest. This weekend I am off to Leeds, with Ansa, I’ve never been so it should be heaps of fun.
to sum up my post, i am just a clueless of my next move as I was three years ago, but if everything fails here I do believe I will move home to Norway and start fresh with a new bachelor, the question is: Which area and what type of future do I want?
I feel too young to decide and I am 23, I don’t get how 16 year olds are able to make that choice when they start high school.
