Another Friday. Another hangover.

Honestly I seem to have no stop button when it comes to half price cocktails.

Last night I met up with an old school friend, we cant have seen each other in about 4 years, but at uni we used to get together from time to time and remember the good ‘ol days when we were 17 and drinking too much, not listening to anything about Louis XIV or Sylvia Plath, and generally getting into a little bit of trouble. Only at uni we were 20, drinking WAY too much, not even going to the lectures to find out about the subjects and getting into a LOT of trouble.

But it was cool to see her again. We did the obligatory ‘what are you up to’ and the relationship re-caps, and even discussed the fb page for the school. But the best part was finding out the whole ‘where are they now’ thing about our class mates.

We went to quite a good, few £1000 a year school. All girls. Good exam results. Good reputation. So the floating about of careers I have done in the last few years {retail, recruitment *ugh*, media sale and now marketing} kind of made me feel a little bit like I failed, and maybe that cash would have been better spent on, oh I don’t know, holidays, bigger boats? Something useful. My best friend from school is a doctor. Like a proper, works in a hospital, saves people’s lives doctor. But it would appear we know a whole load of people who have bumbled about as much as we have. We have friends who started of doing law, then changed to marketing {finished this degree} and is now half way through an interior design degree – but isn’t sure it’s what she ‘really’ wants to do, or a friend who works as an 18-30 rep {sleeping her way around Greece it would seem} or the friend who couldn’t decide what to do with her degree so is now a kept woman. And Nic, well, she is now a lawyer, but she’s been a sales rep, a recruitment consultant and might become a teacher?

It definitely made me feel better to know that it’s not just me who has no idea what to be when she grows up. Although working in the marketing department for a snowboarding brand would be pretty cool right now. Me thinks.
