All that I know now.

So, i'm twenty, I get that it's hardly the age of a real mature grown-up woman, yet I can't help but feel a sense of wisdom as I am fast approaching the final days of my English degree.
I'm from a small town, and in that small town, lives very little aspiration. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, but people there, and I suspect in most seaside towns around the UK, just don't want to leave. They are more than content to just have a full time job rather than a career, settle down with their childhood sweetheart, and put up with the place for eternity. Now, i'm not slagging it off. By all means, I love visiting home and I understand that we're all different, but really? There is a whole globe full of exciting countries and places to see and experience and to stay in England.. well that's just not enough for me. That's why I have decided to make a pact to myself that I will travel and visit as many countries as this Earth can offer me, and of course that I can afford whilst i'm in my prime decade. Once i'm back from my time in America, I'm going to go home until I can find a full-time job in Manchester, that bloody city has stolen my heart. Once I've saved enough cash i'm going to pack up my life and resort to a suitcase and a backpack and travel the world! As I write this i'm still in my PJ's at 1.30pm, eating a tub of Pringles that I've almost finished and am in desperate need of a shower, and I can't live this way forever! I know i'm going to miss said days where I can lounge around without a care in the world, writing optimistic posts like this one. But as I look up and out of my barred windows in Rusholme to the 'veranda' outside, the view is far from what I want to bare witness to for eternity.

So that's it, that is my entire plan once my degree is done with, and my US visitor visa is up. And what an exciting one it is!

What do you have planned for your post-grad twenties?
