Summer time

Well, it’s August now, and getting towards the end of Summer, I’m very well aware.

This is officially my last ‘free’ summer, because as of September 2nd, I will be a full time employee of the Cooperative Bank. How exciting!

Okay, it’s not my dream job, but I’m twenty one, and I have no money. I can’t pursue my dreams with -£800 can I?

Well, I could…

This summer isn’t turning out quite how I expected. Not a lot has been happening. I’ve got three weeks of freedom left, and I’ve not really got an awful lot to fill them with.

Last summer was probably one of the best summers of my life. I volunteered at the Olympic Games.

Honestly, I don’t think I could top that. It was such a rewarding experience and it felt amazing to be a part of something so big and so magical.

I’m definitely signing up to go to Rio in 2016, couldn’t think of anything better!

I also did a lot of work experience last summer, spent two weeks at a radio station in Guildford and three weeks at BBC Radio Manchester.

Also went to Reading festival, and it’s looking like that’s going to be my last festival for a good while – gutted, but maybe next year.

I can’t say this summer has been all bad, had an amazing girls holiday to Majorca in June.

Even with the hassle and struggle it was to get there, it was a brilliant holiday.

Plenty of sun and drinks!

It’s definitely made me want to go on another holiday like this, while I’m still young.

I also graduated this summer, which was a lovely day, albeit hot.

We’ve had a good run, and of course there are others aside from my coursemates who I’ll miss.

My gorgeous housemates, my lovely work colleagues, and the people I’ve met along the journey.

This summer is definitely important, and I shouldn’t waste it, but I know that come September, I’ll start a whole new chapter of my life.

I can’t wait.
