Time for Something Slightly Different!

I don’t really ever mention my university on here. Now seems as good a time as any – as today was my graduation! For the past three years I’ve been studying towards a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning in Early Childhood. Before that I did a year of speech and language therapy. And before that I was majoring in theatre for my BA. Barnaby and I  even have an ongoing joke that I’m like Van Wilder! It’s pretty great to finally be done with university! To be honest – I didn’t enjoy it very much, and the past year has definitely been a struggle! I’ve met some wonderful people, but here’s to moving forward! Hooray!

The actual ceremony was quite lovely though. I wore flats by bait footwear paired with a gingham ASOS dress that Barn bought for my birthday. As I walked across the stage, my Nana called out my name and I gave a little wave. There always has to be someone to break protocol – what fun!
