On Friday, I had the day that I've been waiting for ever since I handed in my last assignment at university - GRADUATION!

Yes, you could say it was late. I'm pretty sure Sheffield Hallam is the last uni to hold its graduations... And mine was on the last day of the second week. It was a brilliant day and was definitely worth the wait. I won't bore you with too much detail about it - basically the ceremony (which was at Sheffield City Hall) started at 11am and lasted 2 hours. Around 10 seconds out of those two hours were my time to shine - all that worrying, stress and money for TEN SECONDS?! Oh well. It was lovely to see everybody again and catch up. For once, I actually felt a bit proud of myself about my achievement too - even though I've known that I've got a First Class Degree under my belt, this made me feel real. Won't forget that feeling ever. Afterwards, we went over to Yates and had some lunch (whilst still wearing my gown and mortarboard! I wasn't the only one but it was still strange), picked up some Fancie cupcakes (AMAZING!) and headed back home.

The following day, I pretty much relaxed until a big family meal in the evening, which was all good fun and great to see everyone. I haven't seen most of them since I moved to Bath last month, and we don't usually get the chance to get everyone (expect my brother and sister-in-law who live in Holland at the moment!) together. We even had some champagne, which was hilarious as my dad nearly broke a light fitting when the cork came out, which then hit me on the leg...

My outfit for the Graduation meal...
Dress: Primark
Shoes: Office

Also got a lovely surprise for my graduation present from my parents - mortarboard earrings! I absolutely love these and will definitely wear them again. I know it will be random to wear them after graduation, but I do like different earrings, and will help keep my memories of graduation with me!
