I’m sad to be writing my final blog post which happens to be my final piece of writing for the University of Leicester. It’s been a great year full of hard work, but it’s been nice to take some time to write a more relaxed blog post every week or so. And what better way to finish my blog than by writing about my graduation!
My class graduated on Friday 13th July – I didn’t trip when I took my turn on stage as I’d feared, so it wasn’t as unlucky as it’s rumoured to be. I started the day by gowning up in my graduation robes and mortarboard. As I stood there feeling very smart, it finally dawned on me that we really were finishing and that I wouldn’t be returning in October. What an amazing three years it has been! After taking countless photographs by which time my jaw was aching from smiling, it was time to head to De Montfort Hall for the ceremony to begin. When I finally got to stand up and go on stage I felt really elated. It was equally exciting seeing my friends take to the stage and I couldn’t help but cheer. After the ceremony, we enjoyed the tradition of throwing our caps in the air.
So what’s next for me? I’ll be starting graduate entry Medicine in September. Another four years looms, but I know it will fly by as quickly as the last three have. As a final point, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog, but don’t fret as there will be new bloggers taking up the role and posting from autumn!
