'Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.'

*DISCLAIMER: Actually will need them for where I want to go, but I love this quote.*

Hello there, little space of the Interwebs I call mine! How have we been keeping? Many apologies for my absence lately - I seem to have had all of my inspiration zapped from me. However, I am back today with a different kind of post! 
Normally, when I sit down to blog I'll have a plan in mind of what I'm going to write. My notebook will be open next to me, and I'll have a few ideas jotted down about what I want to share with you. However, tonight is different. I don't have a single subject I intend on talking about; I just fancied writing. 
So, I thought I'd give you a little update on my life, the things I've been loving and loathing and see where we end up!  Prepare for thought splurge now. (Apologies in advance - I can feel this being a rambling one.)

I've been thinking a lot about the future lately. This has stemmed mainly from last week - my normal lectures were suspended whilst we took part in 'Careers Week'. The aim was to get us all thinking about where we're headed after our degrees, and more importantly, how we plan on getting there. It's terrifying to think I've only got just over a year left of my degree, I feel as if I've just begun. 
So anyway, as some of you may know already, my aim is to be an English and Drama teacher in a Secondary school. And so, for the past week I've been seriously contemplating which universities I will be applying for later in the year. Oh, and failing miserably at the practice entry seems ALL my maths knowledge has disappeared quicker than my money in the Topshop sale. And that is speedy, trust me.

The future's a funny thing, isn't it? One minute, you're sat talking about all the dreams and ideas you have, the places and events you're planning on going to, and the next minute it seems they're right there, happening. It's a scary thought that in only two years time, I'll hopefully be finishing my PGCE with a job lined up ready to begin. A teacher in two years?! I really don't feel like an adult yet, and I certainly don't look like one!! 
Don't get me wrong though, I am so excited at the prospect of all this happening. 

I also attended a meeting today all about how to successfully pass on the Musical Theatre Society to the up-and-coming committee. Now THAT put things into perspective. How has it been almost a year since I nervously stepped up to the front of the room and put myself forward for President? The next few weeks are going to be very busy with the society; the roles for our summer musical 'Guys and Dolls' will be cast, auditions will begin, and elections will run. It's daunting to think that I'm not going to be looking after the society for much longer. I've grown so incredibly attached to it, I feel like it's partly my little baby now that I need to help nurture! However, I'm sure the next committee will be great, and I plan on helping them to find their feet way before their roles kick in. 

The future, hey?! It's looking crazily hectic, but I'm excited to enjoy the rest of this term and see what the rest of 2014 has to bring. 

I think that's about all I have to tell you today! I have a super exciting trip planned for September this year, but I'm going to dedicate a whole post or two to that, so stay tuned to find out what crazy adventure I've set myself up to do!

If you've made it this far without falling asleep, well done! You should give yourself ten points or have a doughnut or something. 
Thanks for reading!
