I Can Finally See The Horizon


On Friday 19th of July I graduated from University. This ceremony marked the culmination of 5 years of study and hard work. It also marks the conclusion of one part of my life and the beginning of another.

Rather than do the sensible thing and go job hunting, or do another degree, or find a flat, or get or this or that and so on… I’ve decided to do, what many would view as a cop out, and go travelling. And for the first time in my life I can truly say that it feels right. It’s not just a dream or a fancy, it’s the right choice. God knows where it’ll take me or how long I’ll be away or whether I’ll ever come home or settle down or whatever!

Right now it simply feels like the whole world is right there before me – just a step out on to the horizon. It’s one of the purist feelings of excitement or joy you can get. Not because of what I want to do, but because I have complete conviction in my choice.

And it’s shit scary man.

  1. I know that feeling all too well. I’ve been in that boat several times, but my advice is to hang in there. Travel as much as you can while you’re still young. Once you find a job.. the window of opportunity starts to close on you (unless you do contract work, then there’s more leeway). Congratulations on graduating nonetheless!
