Today was GCSE results day! Today people were hoping for the grades that would get them into sixth form/college/work/an apprenticeship. Today made me think way past college, which is rare because I couldn’t even think about college at all, until a few months ago.
Today has made me think about what I want my life to be like, and what I want from it.
Most of the time, education plays a big role in how good an occupation someone has; how much money they earn, and their quality of life due to this. Sometimes it doesn’t. In no way am I disappointed with the grades I achieved, in fact for once I am proud and happy with myself for doing well. But after receiving 11 letters which apparently decide how well I do in life, I’m not thinking about how easily I will get into college or what I’ll do when I’m there. I’m now left inquisitive about my future after that; what I can do without those 11 CAPITAL letters, or what I can do with them. (If that makes no sense to you, don’t worry about it, I’m not 100% sure of what I’m thinking at the moment either). I currently have no clue of what I want to do with my life, but maybe now I can start figuring that out.
What plans do you have for your life? What would you love to do?
