5 Things I Want to do Now I’m Free

November 9, 2017 Discussion 18

The most surreal thing has happened to me. I have finished my last exam of veterinary school. Well, unless I awkwardly fail, but let’s pretend that’s not even an option.

For the first time in 5 years I don’t have to worry about going back to uni and losing all my free time again. Sure, I’ll be working, but that still seems better than studying and stressing and not getting paid for effort.

Now that I’m free, I have so many things I can’t wait to do! Some much more exciting than others.



I FINALLY HAVE TIME TO CATCH UP ON ALL THE BOOKS I’VE BEEN MEANING TO READ! There are almost 200 books on my TBR pile which is insane. I’m going to have to teach myself how to binge read all day again. How exciting is it to finally be able to catch up though


Assassin’s Creed Origins

The latest Assassin’s Creed came out right before my exam study was due to begin, so I didn’t have the chance to start it immediately but I finally got my hands on it. I’m barely in, but I can see myself forgetting to read because I get lost in the deserts of Egypt building myself a giant stable of all the horses #priorities.

Other games I might play are also Witcher III and Fallout 4, and maybe Dishonored: Death of the Outsider if I can afford it. I also need to 100% complete about 5 or so other games ha.

Job hunting

This is the less fun bit of being finished, but a necessary part for my future. I’ve had no luck yet, but I’m hoping the perfect opportunity will pop up soon (it might even be one I applied for today!). It’s so weird to have to adult now.


More book photos

Bookstagram got pushed to the side too often these past few months, mostly because I was rarely home when the lighting was right. Now that I’m home more often I have no excuses!


Ponies Ponies Ponies

You bet I’m going to go and play with the horses as often as I can for the rest of the year! I don’t know where I’ll be next year so I have to give all the horses at work love while I still can.


One thing that I didn’t have as a proper point on the list but should get a proper mention is blogging! Once I get some more post ideas (I have basically none right now :/ ) blog posts will hopefully pick up frequency!

What is the first thing you guys do when you’re free from school/ work?

      It’s so surreal! I eventually got some ideas, but then I had to do adulting things and got super busy so have barely read :'(

      Wow that long ago? It’s flown by! Haha I’m going through stages of mood where I play AC then get tired of it and go to reading/ blogging. Once I finish the main story my entire focus should shift to books though.

      Thank you! We should try and catch up sometime after I have my graduation/ when life settles down.

      Thank you! I wish I could avoid the adult stuff. It’s so booringgggg. Can I employ someone to do it for me :P

      Thank you! Haven’t entirely finished officially yet but hopefully it is actually done and dusted and I don’t have to redact my statement hahaha

    Oh how I remember this feeling well! It was five years ago for me now, but enjoy it! I binge-read SO much before landing a great graduate job, and while I still read, my career (and more qualifications!) have taken priority, so it’s not just as much as I got to read during those glorious six months post grad!!

      I’m definitely going to take my time job hunting. Gotta find the perfect job (and read as much as possible *cough*).
