My mind is currently occupied with all the possibilities that this world has to offer, all the places I could live and all the cultures to indulge in. I keep forgetting that these possibilities could become all-to-real with just a little bit of planning of the years to come. Five years ago, I was living in Bordeaux, France. I wasn't sure what I wanted to study, or what studying at university looked like. I had never been loved. I was eager to explore, but unsure of where to start. After five years, I have finished an undergraduate degree, learnt French, worked in the same retail store, finished a year of postgraduate law, done several internships, travelled to Thailand, Singapore, Japan, America, around Europe and Australia, had love and lost it, been kinder to myself and moved out of home. I'm amazed by everything that those five years have brought me, but also looking forward to the next five. So, here's what they are looking like for me at the moment:

February - Paris
March to June - First semester of my second year postgraduate study
July - Camping around either Tasmania or New Zealand
August to November - Second semester

January to July - Semester abroad in Stockholm or Berlin followed by travel
August to November - Second semester of my third year
December - Should probably do a clerkship of some sort

March to June - Finish off the remaining units of my degree
September 2017 to September 2018 - A year abroad teaching English in Japan

September to December - Hopefully by now I have figured out where I'd like to live and work,
and spend these months planning for whatever this may be

Finally start real work in a fancy law office/government agency/production agency/none of the above

So let's get started - I go to Paris next Sunday.
