I was talking to my flatmate Kate yesterday, about how glum work and university stress and the time of year were making us. We’re both in our final year of courses that no longer stimulate and excite us, and it feels a bit like a long hard slog to the finish so we can move on and get jobs that *do* interest us. She said she always felt better when she had a definite plan, something to strive for and remind her why she was doing all this.

For me what I think about when I’m a bit blue is the hammock in my garden. In my head the sky is blue overhead and it’s warm. There’s a couple of books and a blanket in case I get chilly, a tall cocktail, sunglasses, a wide brimmed hat and a summer’s afternoon to while away doing nothing.

The Future all seems a bit intangible and far away at the moment, but the picture in my head is pretty clear. I’m doing this so I can have a beautiful carefree summer, a break before I enter the rest of my life. Although mainly I think I just want some sun!
