Today I have a meeting with Antonella my university personal tutor. She is also my supervisor for my dissertation. But for today I am seeing her about how I am getting on at uni.
After all my classmates graduated last month, I have had to come to terms with the fact that I have not yet graduated. The beginning of this year was a time of illness. This is why I did not get to graduate with my friends. It has taken time for me to get back into uni, I have not found it easy or enjoyable.
I miss Trudy, Jules, Stacy, Helen, Charlotte, Natasha and all the others who I got to know over the 3 years we spent together. They have all moved on and I am still here. I am sure you can tell I have felt quite sorry for myself!
Now I am full steam ahead, when I started uni I didn’t do an English degree for anyone else but me. Now I have to get that attitude back and continue doing what I have been for 3 years. I only have a few modules left, and I will be a graduate of UCS. And I cannot wait, I am so proud of the fact I haven’t given up, thrown in the towel. I have picked myself up, discussed it with friends such as The Young Gardener who I work with and consider a good friend. She helped me to come to terms with the issues I had and move on from the sadness and disappointment I suffered from not getting to graduate.
So now I am going in to Uni, working on my dissertation, and working on completing the modules so I can put on my cap and gown and rejoice from the fact I am tenacious and strong!
