Taking a Shot in the Dark

This school year has been going really well. Next week is Finals Week for me, which means that my first semester of college in coming to an end. I absolutely love my college and all of the friends that I've made here. I've also loved a majority of my classes, and I've gone to loads of different events that have taken place on campus.

After this school year completely ends, I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life. I don't know where I'm going to live for the next school year, or how I'm going to pay my tuition. I don't even know what I'm going to be doing over the summer. If you've been reading my blog for a long time you'll know that I had the hardest time trying to find a job and going to different interviews. For this summer, I'm worried that I'll have just as hard a time finding a job this summer.

I also want/hope to do an internship over the summer. Everyone here at college that I've talked to has told me that I need to start proving how much I want my future career as soon as I can. And, apparently, the way to do that is by doing internships and gaining as much experience as I can. So, without telling anyone except for my boyfriend, I applied for an unpaid internship in a different state working with Elephants. I have no idea if I'll get it, or how I'll get to the other state, and if I'll be able to find a job in that state in order to live there during my internship... I honestly just took a shot in the dark and applied. I was shaking the whole time I was applying!

I'm not typically one to move forward with something when I don't have all the details worked out. I've always known what I've wanted to do for a living and when I was looking at colleges I knew right away which one I was going to attend. I even have all of my classes for the next 3 years of schooling all planned out and written down. So, when applying for an internship in a different state without having everything already worked out about my living situation and when I could work is something really new for me.

Like I was telling my boyfriend before, my life after this school year is going to be an adventure because I have no idea what I'm doing!
