The Graduate Diaries - Chapter 5

Moving back home after university was necessary. When I started university three years ago, I never thought about what I would do when it was over. And moving back home wasn't what I imagined I would have to do. But, for the time being, I am saving a heap of money, and it actually isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

The only thing that sucks is seeing your friends move back to university or worse, move to London, and let me tell you the FOMO is real. They're having independent lives again, either studying or working in these fancy city jobs whilst I am back in my old bedroom being told to turn my TV down at night.

Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, I love how close to home it is, that it is so laid back, and the industry is absolutely perfect for me, but there are points when I wish that maybe I was moving to London, being this independent city living girl and living with some of my friends who are either studying or working there. Their weekends look so exciting compared to mine which include food shopping and watching Netflix.

Plus, it's moving in weekend at my old university, and I see friends going back, moving into their new houses, ready for another year in a place that I love. I really really miss living with my friends. Someone to gossip with, stay up late with and talk about mindless things, people to bake things for, borrow clothes from or to go for walks with when you need to get out of the house.

Ah I could go on and on about the things I miss about university and the intense London FOMO, but maybe this time next year, I'll too be making the move to the city - I've just got to save a bit of money first.
