Yesterday was one of the biggest moments of my life as I managed to graduate from The University of Huddersfield with a 2:1 in Journalism. At times I thought I wouldn’t have made graduation day and my mother even said yesterday the same thing as I’m the only one in our family to attend university. The day was a mix of emotions, of course firstly I was extremely happy to gain my degree and for the stress to be over but yesterday also gave me time to reflect on my next challenge ahead and to be honest I miss education already. I have been so busy applying for jobs, and organising my 21st birthday I haven’t had much me time which includes blogging and considering other options, such as studying for my Masters or a PHD. For now I am going to enjoy this week of celebrations and also forget about the mess in my bedroom which I still haven’t fully unpacked whilst moving home. I am also very happy to announce that I am back with my boyfriend, after a whirlwind of 6 months apart; we have both decided to give our relationship another chance. Now that I am back home it is a lot easier to see each other and the 6 months apart gave us both an opportunity to develop as people and realise what our goals are in life. I’m very glad I was able to share my happiness with my parents, my boyfriend and my friends at university.
To finish the day, I enjoyed a celebratory curry with my parents and boyfriend back home in Mancunian land.
Have you recently celebrated your graduation day?
