The Weekend Blog (Vol.53)
25th April 2015
This week started with some great news!
I found out that I achieved a first class grade in my dissertation. I was completely shocked and over the moon. What I am most proud of is the fact I didn’t ask for a deadline extension, even when I was having problems leaving the house to conduct my interviews for the report thanks to my deteriorating hip condition.
I have an Excel spreadsheet that acts as a grade calculator (which is not at all sad) and so each time I receive a new grade it goes into the calculator to work out how well I am doing with my degree.
I’m pleased to report that even before I’ve sat my exams and received all of my coursework marks back, I have a degree at a 2:2 class. Hopefully I can do well in exams over the next few weeks and maybe even achieve a 1st in my degree.
As I tweeted this week, I’m not sure whether it’s the sunshine or the fact I am nearing the end of my degree but I am feeling very inspired at the moment. I’m also the happiest I’ve been in a very long time. I really think choosing to not go on to a masters right now was a wise choice. A break a way from education will do me the world of good. Who knows, I may never feel the need to return to formal education. We are always learning, even when we aren’t studying.
Have a great weekend!
