So I guessed anyone reading this blog (if anyone actually is...) might want to know a bit about me, so here goes...
I'm 22 and about to graduate from university. I've studied journalism for the last three years and pretty much all it has taught me is that it's definitely not what I want to do.
Currently battling my way through assignments and a dissertation, trying but failing to get that all important beach body and getting ready for some summer fun!
I'm in no rush to grow up and join the "real world" so I'm planning on spending some time in Spain. I've always wanted to learn the language and I have visited a few times. It has better weather than the rainy UK and it's not tooo far away so I can still come home and annoy my family on a regular basis.
I've got a job lined up in a school (hopefully in Barcelona, but I won't know for definite for a couple of months) helping children to learn English from September. I've taught before, at summer camps in Romania (I'll write about this one day, all I can say is it's not for the faint hearted) for the last two years so I'm hoping I should take to this quite well! I'm going to au pair for 2 months in the summer too. Fingers crossed that the family is nice and that I'll pick up some Spanish.
I'm a pretty average 22 year old.. I drink too much, spend too much time wishing time would go faster, spend my money as soon as I get it and love having a bit of fun. I work in a bar, go out too much and love to sleep. I've loved student life but I'm definitely ready to say goodbye to it now. Time for the next chapter (cheesy, sorry). Uni has made me lazy and I don't like it. I can't believe I was once a 14 year old that was out of bed at 6am to put my horse out in the field, spent a full day at school and then went back to the stables to ride and muck out until 7pm. Now I complain when I have to walk the dog and I hate it. Also hate the fact that I am no longer the skinny minny (such a mumsy phrase) I used to be, but one day I will be back to that!
I don't want to look back in 10 years time and wish I'd done more when I was young, free and single, so here I am, off to Spain in a few weeks and I CANNOT WAIT!
