Looking back, and trying to look forward.

I can't believe it's the end of the year already. It's been such a great year, from my second term abroad at UNC, to travelling at the end of that year, getting lots of writing done over the summer, going on the family holiday in the summer with my boyfriend, and then with my first experience at a convention in November.
It's hard to guess at how this year might turn out: so much will be changing. I'm at that point where the first question everyone asks is "What's your dissertation about?" quickly followed by "So what are you going to do after you graduate?"

I don't know what I'm going to do when I graduate. Apart from write, I don't know what I want to do with myself next. When the applications start opening in spring, I'm going to apply to work in a ski resort for the winter - I've really been planning that since before I started uni, I enjoyed it so much. But over the summer before that, and what I do after that, I really don't know at the moment.

So many things come down to waiting to see where The Boyfriend ends up going for his postgrad course. If he's at a university in the UK, then I'll be looking for some kind of job near there, and probably moving down once my lease in Edinburgh finishes in August. If he's somewhere in America... we'll see. That's harder to figure out.

At least for now, the next few months are planned: last semester of uni, writing the rest of my dissertation, and studying for the exams. Those are the big things I'm looking at at the moment, my top priorities. The rest will come as I go along.

a pretty big year, and another to come, sounds like you've planned well.
