[dropcap]S[/dropcap]he’s only gone and done it! A pretty sweet 2.1 degree in Theology from Durham University. Think of the career paths that have just opened up to me…. the Church, the Church, law, the Church. Wow, so much choice! What will I do with my life?! So many amazing possibilities to do nothing very exciting for the next 50 years.
Seriously though, I’m happy. I screwed up my dissertation (though I’m not sure why or how yet) and could probably have got a first if I hadn’t but hey ho, life goes on and I still technically bagged myself a high 2.1 either way. I’m not annoyed at myself at all. No sir. Nope.
Also how annoying is it that they still haven’t finished fixing up the Cathedral so it’ll have that little hat on for graduation on Friday. Nightmare.
The good news is that by the time I graduate again it’ll be off and looking beautiful.
That’s right, this gal has another year to go. Four years just weren’t enough and I’m doing a masters! A perfectly useful masters in Theology. Fifth year, come at me.
Jokes about the uselessness of Theology aside, I’m really excited to be staying in Durham for another year , living back out of college, and doing a little bit more of the subject I love without having to get a grown up job.
It has, all in all, been the best year. I’ve made some amazing friends and had the best time, and worked so bloody hard, and I’m kinda sad that it’s finally over. It has absolutely drained me but I think that’s okay.
This post was going to be all sad and nostalgic and farewelly and stuff but it really doesn’t feel like it. It’s really hard writing a nostalgia post when you’re not actually leaving. I guess a lot of my friends are leaving but that’s okay – I’ll see everyone again, and it didn’t stop me last year when all my friends graduated at the end of my year abroad. It’s all going to be fabulous.
Here’s to the next year!0
