helloooo, i'm a 22 year old international relations graduate and in 20k debt as a result - bring on the jobs! uni was great, met brilliant people who i'll be traumatised to part with but i'm sure we'll meet again... maybe with a salary! grad ceremony in july, then moving to geneva, switzerland, for an internship with the UN... in life i want to see as much of the world as possible, ride an elephant (despite visits to several asian countries i still haven't managed to), work with orangutans in borneo, get work for an NGO (maybe a charity for child soldiers), and see stevie wonder live - i had to sell my tickets for next week, bad times. along the way i want to be surrounded by good people. and my mum always said 'you create your own luck'... so i'd better get on it. and looking forward to meeting lots of couch people along the way of course!
my mum: you don't get lucky, you create your own luck (i think this is true... unless you're born into a very rich family, which is lucky for anyone!)
me: reach for the moon, if you miss you'll still be in the stars
(and more pessimistically): expect the worst, then if it is the worst you're ok about it and if it's better then you're a happy one :)
