The end of student-dom

This afternoon I sat my final final. I have no more exams to prepare for. In other words, I have finished university. That day I spoke about in a post a few weeks ago… Well it has arrived. It is today.

I’m feeling so many things, and struggling to put into words how I’m feeling. This post may not be particularly coherent and sorry, not sorry for that; it sums up perfectly the many emotions I’m feeling. Also, I’m soon heading out to celebrate and enjoy freedom, so don’t want to stare at any laptop screens more than necessary!

I feel like this is the end of something amazing. University truly has been the time of my life! I’ve met so many amazing people, had some incredible experiences, and developed so much. I truly have loved virtually every minute of it (not even wearing rose-tinted glass – I checked). The past three years have flown by, and it feels crazy preparing to leave already!

But, despite this, I also feel this is the beginning of something great! There is so much I have planned now I’ve finished and I just cannot wait to get straight into it. I don’t want to feel sad that it is an end at all; I am determined to keep in contact with as many people as possible (not one of my fortes), and relive the incredible memories to remind me of all the great times!

Although I’m moving on, I think I will always be a little jealous of students – I know I’m repeating myself, but it is an incredible time. My biggest piece of advice to those who are still students would be to enjoy every opportunity, and really make the most of the whole experience, not taking any of it for granted, for the time flies!

It feels great to have finished the studying side – the past few weeks have involved lots of revision and work – the final exam today felt like a release of all the pent-up energy and some stress and it feels great to have finished all exams for good – especially after a lifetime in the education system (literally). It’s now just a month to find out my grades!

Anyway, as I said at the start, this post has been a little like chucking random words at the page as they come into my head, but I hope it has made a little sense, at capturing and conveying the feelings of turning the page on this particular life chapter.
