My Last Week in Leicester

I’m writing this post on the train home from Leicester, marking the end of my final year as a Leicester student. My final week in Leicester has been eventful to say the least! On Monday I got my results back and found out that I’ve been awarded a First for my degree! I am of course absolutely over the moon with this and so pleased that my hard work over the past 4 years has paid off. Conveniently our results happened to arrive whilst I was in the pub with some of my friends so we could start celebrating almost instantly! After constantly checking my emails for a few days to see if results had been released it was a huge weight off my shoulders. Celebrations continued on Tuesday as it was my birthday and the last time I saw a couple of my friends before they moved out. Goodbyes continued throughout the week as other friends and housemates left one-by-one. It’s strange to think that the people I’ve been living with or seeing almost everyday won’t be living so close to me anymore. This week also marks a year since I finished my year abroad in New Zealand and flew back home. Being reminded of this by Facebook brought back loads of memories from my year abroad which was definitely one of the highlights of my degree.


I’ve also been stuffing envelopes with brochures about geology and geography courses to send out to schools and colleges. It seems fitting that during my last week I’m helping to recruit the next generation of students, who I hope will enjoy their time at university as much as I have. In amongst all this I’ve also had to fit in packing up my stuff and cleaning my house ready to give the keys back, so it’s safe to say I’m exhausted! I’m already starting to miss Leicester and can’t wait to be back in a few weeks time for graduation!
