Graduation

I'm sure if you've all seen a flurry of graduation pictures this month, and this collection is essentially just more of the same. Of course, this one includes me looking rather fetching in a cloak and mortarboard, so let's have a look! (I actually edited these photos to fit, but blogger wasn't having any of it, so please excuse the awkward landscape one!) 


That last one is a totally accurate family picture of us. Thanks Dylan! Thank creased dress!

Graduation was a really happy and sad time for me, considering recent events. My dad came down for the occasion and I think he felt rather poignant about it all as well. I felt proud of myself for graduating and getting a superb 2:1 degree, but also upset with myself for being so close to a 1st. I know classification isn't the be all and end all, as some places only consider it as "an experience", but I felt annoyed with myself, and then even more annoyed for being annoyed! I just finished my degree! I've got myself an internship! I'm okay!

I'm sure a lot of graduates go through this sort of feeling, or similar at least, and I'm beginning to form a life plan so it isn't all doom and gloom ahead. I'm about halfway through my internship and that's going really well. It's in communications, which isn't really something I thought I would be doing when I started my degree, but I seem to be pretty good at it. Lots of social media management, lots of content management systems to figure out, and I'm getting a dab hand at SEO too. Because I'm nuts, I'm still working at my t'other job, so I've been working 7 days a week for the past three weeks. Well, I say 7 days, I've actually ended up spending some days working from home due to graduation and the train strike, and it never feels like work when you get to do it at home in your pjays! I can see why some many people want to be full-time bloggers/freelancers!

So what's new with you? Tell me all your exciting/not so exciting news! I've been trying to keep up with blog reading, even if I haven't been posting as such, but I've been pretty terrible with it. Most of my blog reading goes on when I manage to snag wifi on the train, which can be quite limiting to say the least. I'm hoping to step it up a notch though, cos I'm nice like that.
