Graduation

Last Wednesday was a very proud day. I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with a 2.1. There were some points during the degree that I doubted I would ever come away with anything. I am not one of these people that can cram a few days before or start my coursework a week before due date *cough* my boyfriend who gets 83% in one piece of coursework *cough*. I am not naturally intelligent and have to work so hard in order to get decent grades. That is what makes this degree all the sweeter.

I really did have such a lovely day with my parents and boyfriend. We all trekked to Cambridge to the Corn Exchange, getting up at half 5 was not pleasant. My soppy mum started crying when she saw me in the gown, bless her cottons socks. I think it hit us all just how far we had come, I am the only one that went to University in my family. The degree really was a joint effort; everyone mucked in and put up with me when I turned into a monster before deadlines.

I managed to totter across the stage in my chunky heels without falling over. I had been having nightmares that I would fall flat on my face; I think that walk was the longest of my life! The day ended with amazing three course lunch in Jamies Italian, seriously we need one near me. It was delicious. It was so nice to see everyone again and learn all about what they were doing. Even if it was a bit disheartening to hear that some of them had jobs and I didn't. Ah well my time will come soon!

It went so quickly and before I knew it I was back at home at 4pm trying to cram in a few hours kip before the pub quiz. I wish I could do it all over again.

Somehow I seem to have hit 202 readers! Wow! Thank you all so much and please don't be shy, come and say hello on twitter.

  13. ahh lovely graduation photos, soph! i remember really having to be persuaded by my parents to go to my graduation - i didn't really like uni very much and i didn't have much desire to go to the graduation, but i guess i'm glad that i did in the end- i think there are only about three or four photos of my graduation though. i hadn't really got used to having my photo taken, it was before i really got into blogging or anything.
