The Graduate Diaries - Chapter 1


I am no longer a student! My library card has expired and I only have until October to get my NUS extra discounts (let's be honest, I am very very sad about this!).

But before I get into the sad things about leaving my university house for the last time, let's start with the good. I got a 2:1 in my degree! All I can say is thank goodness. Spending all my Easter holidays in the Library, plus all the tears and stress really were worth it. I ended up getting a 65 in my Dissertation which I was incredibly happy with when you take into consideration that I thought I was going to get something in the region of 55! I graduate on the 22nd July and I am so excited to have a last minute celebration before leaving my university career behind.

And now onto the sadder parts of finishing uni. I've now packed up my university room and have moved back home. I always knew this would come as I can't afford to move out, but it still didn't make it any easier.

Moving home for holidays is always a bittersweet moment. I am close to my family and like being able to relax, but I don't have a my independence and freedom. I also don't have many friends at home either which is making this whole unemployment thing even worse. I'm not especially looking forward to graduate life at the moment, but I am hoping that once I get a job, things will get a lot easier. Hopefully I will get some of my freedom back and be able to save enough money to eventually move out.

But in slightly better news, I do have an interview next week, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to look forward too!

Let's see what the next chapter of life brings!
