So, I booked a holiday for the beginning of September. It’s only five days at the beach, with my sister and grandmother.
Although, really it’s only three full days. The first day we’ve only got the apartment from 3 o’clock - and I have to head up on my own by train, ‘cause my sister’s still got an exam in the afternoon & we have to pick up the key before five. So I have to get the key and then wait for like two hours for my sister and grandmother to get there.
And we have to hand in the key before ten o’clock the last day. So it’s going to be a short holiday, but at least it’s something! Now let’s hope the weather’s good!
I’m having trouble deciding what step to take next in my life. I can either do an extra year of studying, or start to look for work more actively. I can’t decide what to do. I think I’ve made up my mind, but then I change my mind again…
The extra year seems interesting. It’s more practical and has some things that I’d like to do, like subtitling. But, I’m not sure that’s really a plus, because chances of finding work in subtitling are pretty much non-existant. The second semester is an internship, which is good for experience & helps with the job search afterwards. The thing is that I’m a bit fed up with studying now. I’ve already done 6 years now. And, it’s pretty expensive.
But, finding work isn’t easy either. I’ve been getting vacancies sent to my email, but there’s nothing. I might be able to find something once I sign up with an employment agency and send out some letters to some translation agencies, but I don’t know… And to be honest, the whole process of finding work is scaring the crap out of me.
I just don’t know what to do… I need to make up my mind and stick to it, but I’ve just got no idea what I’m supposed to do. Please help!
