It’s now the start the second semester. For those in their final year it means there’s only 12 academic weeks left before they’re given ‘the order of the boot’ and have to find a life for themselves.
For many this will be the first time they will be removed from under the protective blanket that being within a school / education institution provides. Now, for the first time in their lives, when someone asks ‘where will you be in 6 months / a year’s time’, they don’t know. Plus now we are passed the New Year, the ‘Oh, but it’s not till next year’ no longer applies.
For some this can be a scary time, for others a challenge to be accepted, bur like it or not, it’s happening.
