We Made It! Shock and Awe!


.. To be grateful you got through it. Exaggeration, kind of. Uni was fun. Most of the time. The privilege is one I am extremely grateful for (mostly). The last three years were some of the fastest and most trying times of my life. So when it was all successfully over, it was nice to celebrate, not just my achievement but that of all the fabulous friends I made along the way. In that spirit, I attended quite a few graduations. Emotional times ☺. At Durham, they spanned four days, mine being on the last day. A real dress up galore.

I decided on dressed-down suits for the three preceding graduations and a dress for mine.
