Post Graduation "Blues" Watch
I have realised that my life has been pretty cushty at uni for the last three years. I went to a respectable university in the north of England and studied sound.
I graduated in July so just over a month ago and I've had one interview for a graduate job so far and they didn't get back to me which was a bit rubbish but hey ho, move on.
Then this week, my girlfriend of three years has broken up with me which has thrown me as I didn't see it coming. I generally feel I have no purpose right now and it's becoming extremely detrimental to my thoughts and general health.
I feel like if I got the job that I want, I would get back on the straight and narrow but at the same time, getting something not related to my degree would feel like a failure. I guess I need some direction.
Does anyone have any advice on how they dealt with this section of their post-graduation life?
I've read some stuff online, but a lot of it just seems to meme it like "oh whoa me, I'm a graduate with low career prospects" but I have got relevant experience! I just don't seem to be getting anywhere with it.
I haven't had any experience with mental health problems and that's why this is so scary for me. Should I see a GP?
I would work out a post uni plan on friends/network post-uni, post-gf.
