Today was the day that I propsed to my boyfriend!……………..haha just kidding, I don’t even have a boyfriend.
I am a media student studying for an MA in TV an Radio production, so being a student, my day was pretty boring and average. One thing that crosses my mind most days, including today, is the fact that my generation’s future is very uncertain.
It is scary to think that even after studying for four years to obtain a degree, at the end of the day it is worth nothing if there are no jobs. It is even scarier for media students because media is one of the hardest industries to get in to even at the best of economic times.
But people don’t realise that the world probably wouldn’t even be able to function if the media didn’t exist. Media students are vital to the industry but we are faced with an uncertain and instable future. I am the type of person who likes to know what I will be doing but when I think ahead to this day in five years time, I couldn’t even give a guess of what I will be doing.
I have settled with the fact that I could be spending a lot of time unemployed or in a job that I don’t love, but eventually I hope, it will be worth it and I will end up where I want to be.
That crossed my mind today…and that was probably as exciting as my day got.
