Day Zero Project: Graduate Uni

I have been a bit slack on my Day Zero Project and to be quite honest I think I was way too ambitious with what I thought I was going to achieve in 1001 days. However, I am going to keep it up as more of a bucket list and tick things off as I go...

One that I am now able to tick off is that I have finally graduated;
I now have a BA Honours Degree in Photography!

As many of you who read my blog will know, I absolutely HATED University and I honestly wish that I had never gone and had gone travelling instead... but if that were the case I wouldn't have the friends that I have now so for that I am grateful.

When I started at Anglia Ruskin in 2012 I was on crutches after having my hip replaced, so for my graduation I decided that wearing heels was a must to show how far I had come. I absolutely loved the heels that I bought but on the day, the worst nightmare happened, they broke! I'm so glad that it happened after I had walked on the stage as I was already so nervous about it!

As a family, we had a lovely day at the graduation and then went for a few drinks in Revolutions (showing them the student life!) and then we went for a lovely meal in The Cambridge Chop House - which by my standards was definitely a 5* and was absolutely amazing, I definitely recommend it to anyone who will be visiting Cambridge!

So, I finally did it - I am finally a graduate and now I have to grow up in the real world...
Or, I think, fly off around the world!
I'm excited for what's to come.

  1. Congratulations on completing your BA.

    I went straight into employment when I was 19, not interested in the University lifestyle, but I did do some Open University courses later in life. University isn't right for everybody at 19. Best wishes for whatever you do next.

    1. It's definitely not for everyone, you are right there! But at least you had the best of both worlds - a job and open university courses! Congrats & Thank You!

  2. Congrats to you! Uni is a tough slog sometimes! I definitely vote for traveling - it's the REAL real world. And now you've got the photography credentials to capture it well!

    1. This is exactly how I've been thinking of it - and my student loan helped pay for my beautiful camera...
      There's always positives in the negatives!
      And I'm looking forward to travelling :)
