Dissertation (Almost) Completed!

Hello again everyone, I hope you are well. I am going to jump straight into the title of this blog entry, my dissertation! As the title would suggest, I have indeed (almost) completed my dissertation! I am now in the final stages of it which means all that is left is proof reading what I have done and make any necessary changes to make sure it all makes sense. Being at this point in my dissertation is such a relief, and I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. However, that is not the end of my dissertation, I also have to complete a reflection of how my dissertation went, which I would rather do in person, but it is a requirement. I also have a presentation and 3 exams to look forward to… yay! The above picture is a good representation of how I feel right now.

In unrelated to university updates, some of my friends are planning a day trip to Paris upon completion of our exams as a day out. This should be something nice to look forward to, and shouldn’t cost too much either. I think it would be nice to just have a relaxing day out in a different city and get some sightseeing in. I have been to Paris a couple of times before, but they say you always experience something new when you revisit a place. Although it would mean getting the first and last Eurostar making it a long day, it should still hopefully be worth it. And even if I do sleep the whole of the next day, all my exams and coursework for my degree will be over! I will be sure to update you on it when I go.

Going back to university related updates, I booked my place at my graduation ceremony in July, and on my next pay day I will order my graduation robes. I can’t wait to put it all on and have my degree certificate, it’s so close!

As always I wish you the best of luck in your coursework and revision. Until next time everyone, take care!

Not that long to go!

Hello everyone, I hope you are well. I can’t believe that in less than two months, my degree will be done, finished, over! In less than three weeks my dissertation is due; as are the other assignments I also have to do. Then my exams begin on the 28th of April, which in my opinion is super early, but come the 12th of May, it will all be over.

I think the stress of it all the work I have to do is making me unwell. I have a flu like cold at the moment which is something I could really do without at this crucial moment in time.

Being so close to the end is quite a sad thought as well. It will be weird not seeing the friends I’ve made over the past few years on a daily basis. I’m sure we will stay in touch, but it will be weird. I should be back here next year to do my master’s with some of the people on my course, so I will at least get to see some people. Getting to the point of finishing is reminding me of when I left sixth form, not to be sad that it’s over, but to smile because it happened. One of my favourite Dr. Seuss quotes.

I will always remember being told that my time at university will go by in a flash, and not believing it, but it truly has flown by. It only feels like yesterday that it was my first day, and I was moving into halls, and now I am nearly at the point of graduating. I mean it’s the middle of March, when did that happen!? This takes me back to my first point of all my assignments coming to an end.

I wish you all the best of luck with your upcoming assignments and exams, until next time!
