A bit of a departure from the bookish topics today because I’M FINALLY GETTING MY GRADUATION!!! I finished my MSc thesis back on the 4th October 2019. We begged for a winter graduation but the uni refused, and then the BIG P WORD came along and we weren’t able to go to the 2020 summer graduation. Well finally summer of 2021 has rolled around and although it’s very different to a usual graduation, I’m finally getting to walk the stage for my MSc!
I did my Masters at the University of Portsmouth in Geological and Environmental Hazards. The course kicked my butt, and I’m super proud of myself for passing! I actually had my ceremony at 10am today (don’t worry, I’m not writing this today, I pre-scheduled it), we wore masks, we social distanced, and not all of my friends from my course could make it. Especially my international friends.
But my partner was there, and my mother watched the livestream. And I’m in the sunshine in my second uni city, with the man I love and my friends. So all in all? Today is a good day.
