Graduation and Goodbye
The day has come – I am posting my last ever blog post 🙁
I have loved being a part of the Warwick blogging community for the past 3 years and it feels like yesterday that my whole university experience started. I’ve had a lot of stressful moments, but a ton of amazing moments and it is 3 years that I’ll never forget. I owe it to the fab friends I have made and support from the Psychology department and university overall. I am beyond happy with my choice to come to Warwick, and I wouldn’t have changed my experience in any way. I really hope that my blog posts have been helpful and entertaining during my time at Warwick – I loved documenting my journey for you all and I hope it was interesting for you to read!
My graduation was the perfect way to bring my time at Warwick and completion of my Psychology degree to a close. It was a super fun and emotional day, which I loved spending with my friends and family. The Psychology department held a reception prior to the graduation ceremony, where I was able to say goodbye to my course mates and professors, whilst also enjoying some strawberries and cream YUM. Of course I had to take full advantage and take a billion pictures around campus, including with the huge Warwick sign. Luckily my ceremony was at 3pm, as opposed to in the morning, which meant that I didn’t have to leave my home in London ridiculously early. The ceremony itself was very formal but filled with emotion, and you could really feel the pride in the room. After it ended, we went to the Piazza to take our department photo and I then headed to dinner with my family.
Graduation is definitely a day that I will never forget and I am currently anxiously waiting for my professional photo in the post, so I can frame it and put it up in our living room! (I’ll insert some pictures below).
This summer has been quite hectic for me so far. Once my exams finished in June, I was having fun with my friends in Leamington and making the most of the town, each other’s company and going to Smack (of course). I properly moved back home at the beginning of July where I carried on the fun by seeing my family, school friends, going to Wireless Festival and going on holiday. As soon as I got back from holiday I had my graduation, and then since then I’ve been with my family a lot. BUT NOW, I am bored… I start my graduate job at PwC in September, and until then I don’t have many plans apart from another holiday. However, I’m going to enjoy this time of doing absolutely nothing because I know it will probably be the last proper summer I’ll ever have.
I’d like to thank everyone, both students and staff, that have made an impact during my time at Warwick by either providing me with help and advice or simply being a friend. I’m going to miss being a Warwick student so much, especially blogging! Good luck to those of you who are leaving Warwick to pursue a career, currently at Warwick studying or hoping to start university in the next few months. You’ll do amazing! 🙂
