Finishing university and taking the next steps for your future can be tough, scary, exciting and so stressful. When you finish your final year after the deadlines and exams there’s an immediate sense of relief, and internal (and external) exclamation of “YAAAAYYYYYYYYY” and then it sets in. The realisation that you may have to transition into an actual real life adult. People around you expect a “plan of action” or sometimes even one set in stone. What it if you don’t? What if everything is up the air and you don’t have all the answers? With this blog I hope document my journey after university- the ideas, processes, ups and downs and just life in general (the day to day, not so scientific side to it).
University : I studied Biomedical Sciences with a year out on Placement in a hospital Pathology department and I’ve loved all four years of my degree – was never too keen on exams. Though it had tough moments, learning about various processes within humans and the evolution of medical research made me sure I was on the right path. I decided along the way that I want to have a research based career (for now anyway) instead of pursuing a “typical” biomedical scientist career route. Buuuttttttt….that’s about it for my “plan of action”. There’s options out there, I just have no idea which is best or where to go 😩 so why not write about the journey ahead.
I hope everyone enjoys reading it 🌸.
Warning: I’m not a writer or English student. I’m a scientist and still getting my head around blogging. Please be kind and any pointers or questions are most welcome 😊.
So, I think that’s it for the first post 🌸.
Peace and love ✌🏽️,
