How I feel about: Leaving College

Since the first day I attended an A-Level lesson I was counting down the time until I could leave. Now this time has come, I don’t think I am ready to leave any more. Leaving college is a huge deal, as I have decided not to go to university at the moment, this really is it. My education is over, well at least for the near future. It’s a little scary knowing I never have to attend another lesson or another exam, it means I truly am an adult now and everything is about to change. Not only am I going into a full time job now, but I also have bill to start paying and a future to start building towards and the whole prospect is a little scary.

On one hand I am totally excited to know I will no longer have teachers telling me what to do and I won’t be learning things that are irrelevant in my future but on the other hand I’m scared because being told what to do and learning pointless things are all I know. From the age of 3 until 18, education, learning and teachers are all I’ve known, so leaving all of that behind means my life is drastically changing and I’m not quite sure what to expect or how to feel about that.

I never thought I would be as emotional as I have been today. I’ve spent 7 years in the same place, through from year 7 until year 13 and now it’s all over. I can’t believe how quick my life is passing me by. I thought I wanted to grow up and be an adult but now that has happened I’m not so sure, I want to start over and go back to the beginning where I had no worries.

I guess I’m scared and nervous but very excited about what my future holds, but only time will tell. I have ambitions and goals which one day I will hopefully reach, but as of right now I am going to enjoy my summer before starting full time work in September.

I am also hoping I can keep the friends I have made throughout the past 7 years. I don’t think I would have survived the 7 years without them by my side, I truly do believe I have made friends for life within the friendship group I have been a part of.

All I have to say is enjoy school and college as much as possible because you might hate it and never want to be there but it truly is an amazing experience if you surround yourself with the right people. I left today with an amazing group of friends and a million memories I will have forever and I can honestly say, even though I mostly hated school and college, I had some of the best times ever and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

My First Post

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

I’ve been meaning to start a blog for as long as I can remember, but I’ve never really knew what I could blog about. After a lot of thought I’ve decided that I’m going to blog about anything and everything. As people may or may not know I go to a lot of concerts, literally around 100+ year so I’d say my life can be pretty exciting at times so why not blog about it? So on this blog I will be talking about anything that comes to mind. Opinions, events, concerts, news, anything I feel people will be interested to see and read.

So for my first post I’m going to post 10 random facts about me. If people are reading my blog then they have a right to know a bit about me so here goes…

1. My full name is Zoe Louise Smith and I am 18 years old.

2. My birthday is on the 1st of November.

3. I have 2 brothers, one who is 16 and one who is 22.

4. I am currently at Sixth Form studying Media and English, however I leave on the 11th of June after my final exam!

6. I have met over 50 celebrities over the past 3 years including Justin Bieber, The Janoskians, Cody Simpson, Rixton, Little Mix, Union J, Luke Friend, The Vamps and loads more. It’s crazy even to me!
