I Graduated from the University of Birmingham!

For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Proverbs 2:6

So… I graduated!!!!!!

I cannot believe how quickly these past three years have gone. It certainly does not feel like three years ago that I was in Devon awaiting my A Level results to see if I had secured my place to study English Literature and Philosophy at UoB! One way or another, though, I started and completed my degree in English Literature and Philosophy, and am now an alumni of the University of Birmingham.

In complete honesty, there were times in my third year when I questioned why I had even applied to university. It was not an easy ride at all, and with all of the extra things that I took upon myself during my time there (writing two dissertations, cheerleading, training for and running the London marathon, and planning a wedding in my final year of uni) it’s not surprising that I found myself lacking time and motivation for my studies. I did, however, push through. I completed the course and came out with a 2:1 degree, and I am definitely happy with that! I even found myself contemplating applying to do a master’s course next year, when a couple of months ago I was questioning why I even pursued further education. It was worth it, in the end, and I’m proud of myself for getting through.

The question still remains – what’s next? But I know that whatever does come next, it will be another exciting and challenging stage in my life, and I am feeling more ready than ever for a brand new adventure!
