I graduated on Friday. It was weird to be back at uni, I feel like I've been finished and working for ages. And also not.

I didn't think I would be that excited about it. It was so nice to take a step back and say 'Yes, I did it.' because at times I wasn't sure I could. Celebrating achievements should never be underated.

We lined up; wearing our cap and gown, reminded each other to salute with our left hand (Who knew we saluted?), hoped desperately we didn't fall as we walked across the stage. A hand shake with the vice-chancellor, a certificate handed over - and it's done. I now officially have obtained a Bachelor of Education.

Totally love that :)

It's a special moment, isn't it? I'm still disappointed that I didn't get to wear a cap (at Melbourne Uni, you have to do your Masters to get the cap!)

That is disappointing! It's the only time I wanted to actually wear a hat (I'm not really a hat person)
