Mission impossible...

It’s nearly a month since I left University and it was definitely the right choice for me. Although I haven’t got a concrete job and I am at home most days, don’t worry. I’m not wasting my life watching daytime T.V. (although Trisha makes me laugh), playing PS3 or on Twitter non-stop (in the evening I am). I’m just not that kind of person. I’m keeping busy working on a few pieces of writing (watch this space), searching/applying for jobs and continuing to build my contacts. So, if people ask what I do I say writer. Even though people think “he’s one of those creative people without a proper job pursuing his pipe-dreams”. But I’m not bothered what other’s think. A bit like my brother the actor.

As well as keeping myself occupied in the days, I’ve set myself a few personal goals. Firstly, I am desperate to be able to go out, whether that be clubbing  or the shops, and push myself in my manual wheelchair. So, I’m doing a bit of daily training outside on the uneven pavements near home. I’ve already been round the block twice and I’m very proud of myself.

My second mission that I haven’t accepted yet because I’m scared is that I want to put myself out there and go on dates. I want to join proper dating sites which you have to pay for because the free ones I’ve been on are full of creeps (like me).

Some have said I’m stupid for leaving University without a clear future but it’s actually quite exciting to not know what’s around the corner.

Like Arsenal winning the FA Cup, me getting a girlfriend and writing pure gold. A boy can dream right?

Bye for now


  1. I don't think it's silly at all! You have to do what is right for you, and for a lot of people, university just isn't it! Contrary to common belief (or what teachers quite often like to push) uni isn't the bee all and end all, it's more so about who you know, what contacts you had and a natural talent/flair for writing - which you have!

    Have you tried sites like Gorkana for journalism jobs? They are the best for jobs like that! Is it sports journalism you want to get into, or just regular journalism?

  2. AH thanks, that is quie true. More about who you know. Sound so wise eventhough we're the same age.

    Yep, I just started following them today so will be checking. And probably not sports as I want to keep them seperate ;)
