Take a walk on the wild side / Post grad thoughts

Hey Guys,

So I am officially a graduate. Last week I graduated from Falmouth university with a BA (Hons) in Fashion marketing and boy am I lost. 

I am so happy right now, so genuinely happy. Over the last few months since we finished our university work I've had the best nights out, spent this heatwave on Cornish beaches and guess what I've fallen in love?
I am living in the best part of the country, surrounded by amazing friends and a great guy.
Graduation was one of the proudest days and such a great celebratory end to the best three years of my life.

Thoughts on these boots? I have always had a weird love for western boots but always been sure as to how to style them but I saw these in a vintage shop near my house and just took the risk, had no clue how to style them, I think them being white leather is but of the issue but sometimes we need to take a risk with our wardrobes.

But what next? - I have already got stuck, its s if I'm on a normal kids summer holiday from school, being lazy, out at the beach with my friends and not thinking about anything to do with work or my 'career'.  I don't think I'll ever be able to get myself into a professional freelance working routine, up at dressed by 8, work out, have breakfast then work at my desk all day. 
In under four weeks my tenancy for this student house I've loved for nearly a year runs up and I'll have no choice but to go back to Caerphilly with my parents, but back to what? Hardly any of my home friends will be around, struggling to find an industry job I am passionate about while attempting a long distance relationship. 

If I could afford to rent a tiny one bed apartment here near Falmouth and keep my 12 hour contract retail job while doing work experience in Cornwall, oh I would. 
I am excited and ready to try new roles and keep developing my industry skills. Lifestyle marketing for a hotel, a digital campaign assistant for a clothing brand or to continue writing but I don't know where to start. I know its natural to feel lost career wise just after graduation but I don't really know where I am meant to be living or where I want to live.  
Even travelling sounds good, I have started to adjust to the change, uni ending and am excited for all of my friends to find their own thing. 
I love Falmouth, I am so happy right now I love this place and the people but maybe I need to be brave, decide what I want to do and find the next adventure. 

Do we ever know what we are supposed to do after university?

Love Charlotte
