I graduated from university with my bachelors of honours in history Thursday and was bombarded with questions like “What next?!” Truth be told, I don’t know what’s next. I don’t even know what I’m doing next week let alone for the rest of my life. Initially I planned on taking the summer off to refocus my energy to help me figure out those important W words of my life: who, where, what, when, why. And until I have an idea of where or at least an idea of what I am hesitant to jump into answering people’s questions about my next step. I don’t think my position is unique either; I’m sure lots of graduates feel the same way. To do more school, to not, to travel Asia, I mean we are all standing on the same cliff looking out on the same hazy horizon, all unsure how exactly to connect point A with point B. Our parents and uncles and aunts will tell us that we will figure it out and it will all make sense, but I feel like this feeling of uncertainty may linger awhile.
So this summer I am just going to focus on me as I try to figure out what exactly I want to do with my future. I mean, if not now when? I really want to keep my creative juices flowing so please enjoy this cool project I did with my dad.
This was my dress for graduation and it is from Aritzia.
It’s such a weird period in my life, but I’m glad I’m giving myself the time to figure it out.
