Hello everyone. Apart from the last post (which I wrote ages ago and forgot to post), this has been my longest gap between posts. Since my exams finished 10 days ago it seems like several weeks have passed. We’ve begun our lecture course on innovation, entrepreneurship and design. Great lecturers so far, but it’s hard to regain my motivation knowing that they won’t be directly examinable. (the exams went okay I think – I’ll let you know when we get results in March)
I am now in anxiety-causing sight of the real world. Having turned the calendar corner that was new year, I can see my money running out and and the need to have a job looming large. I have begun networking, tapping up old contacts and exploring what I might do afterwards.
Do I do what I did before, but in a slightly better role? Maybe.
Do I attempt to make a big change? Maybe.
Do I make money a goal and try to recoup some of my sunk costs? Maybe.
Do I go for what energises me and makes proud of what I do? Well, duh, yes, of course.
I’m in a bit of a pickle because given the fact that when you google my name, this blog comes up, I need to avoid writing anything that might jeopardise future career prospects. So I can’t write that I couldn’t imagine anything worse that working for XXXX company, because i’m changing my mind so fast I might want to work for them next week, and someone might read my blog.
In fact I can’t imagine working for quite a lot of companies. I dearly wish I could abuse them on this blog. I think it would make good reading. But I must stay cool and collected.
