I’m thinking of pursuing a Master’s degree but I’m still on the fence about this… I don’t know what I want to do career-wise but I’m interested in teaching at university-level. However, it takes so much time to achieve that and I’d have to do a phd too. Not sure if I want to be going to school until I’m 28.. and have a huge load of debts too
But if I want to do an MA I will need a 2:1, so I really need to achieve this goal 2 weeks ago
I got 60 in two of my essays, which is not as good as I expected them to be but it’s still a 2:1. 5 months ago
Instead of starting to write my essays the night before the deadline, I got into the habit of starting them almost 3 weeks before the deadline. I suppose that is a progress. The downside of this is that the only reason why I do is because I literally have no life at the moment… I can’t remember the last time I had fun. I sit at home, watch online lectures, do reading, work on my essays, do chores all day…. I feel like I’m losing my mind and going insane. 7 months ago
I will be a 2nd year student at university, which means that from then on every assignment, every exam, every class I attend will count towards my final degree.
The job market looks miserable at the moment. Even people who studied humanities and graduated with 2:1s are unable to find a job they deserve.
I have many plans. I speak 4 different languages and I’m not afraid to travel far or leave home if living in a different country is what I need to do to find a well-paid, steady job. One of my plans is moving to the US or maybe even Australia. Taking CELTA will enable me to teach English worldwide too. So I do have some ideas where to get my money from. 9 months ago
