So What Happens Next?

After months of crossing off the days on my calendar, I have finally finished university. Well, nearly. I have to go in for an informal presentation of one of my assessments and I have a degree show at the end of the month, but still. Unless something has gone drastically wrong, I'm finished. This would fill most people with a sense of happiness, y'know, the need to celebrate and such, but I'm not ready to just stop now. I've been working my butt off for the past few months, and now what? Netflix marathons? Don't get me wrong, I am definitely indulging in Netflix and reading-because-I-want-to for the next few days, but I feel like I should keep busy and have a plan of action. 

Let's check out my options. These are all short term goals, really, as I've no idea what I'm going to be doing by September. 

Get Back Into The Gym
With deadlines creeping closer, I had to stop attending the gym as I felt so guilty going when I should have been working. I'm actually really excited to back to my spinning class and Pilates! Another reason for doing this is that I have been eating terribly as my deadlines approached. I definitely went for convenience, and with no real reason to as we had so many quick and easy healthy alternatives hiding in the cupboards/freezer. I'm determined to have no pizza until after I graduate. 

Find a job!
Of course, like every graduate in the country, I will be joining the search for that elusive first job. As my degree is in publishing, I've been applying for a lot of internships and hopefully this will pay off me! I've also been looking at jobs in marketing as I've become pretty savvy with it in all of my uni projects. 

Read more books
I really, really missed reading for fun and I can't wait to get back on top of my Goodreads challenge. I'm looking forward to hitting up the library for some new reads as well, as now I'm without student discount I'll need something to keep me from spending! 

That's essentially it. Wow, I thought I had my whole life mapped out when I started writing this but I guess not! What have you got planned for the near future? Maybe I could borrow an idea or two...
