Graduation time! It is so exciting to realise you achieved something pretty huge in your life! Usually, this occasion is celebrated at one of the graduation ceremonies, but today I will tell you why I chose to do something else instead.
My degree is finished! After three years of studying, stressing over the assessments, and doing 100 things at the same time, I finally finished. I must admit, it did not feel very exciting to me at first…
Congratulations high school students, you are almost officially finished!
12 years of schooling is a massive achievement. Be proud of how far you’ve come, and be excited about how far you’ll go!
Each year, QUT Open Day is so much fun. I still remember my first Open Day – I was a young Grade 12 student seeking out what to do with my life, wondering what I would like to do after high school.
Lucky for me and a group of other students, my visit to QUT’s Open Day was also combined with luncheon – a special invitation from the university. I was congratulated and encouraged with an award for being a great student at high school and that QUT had recognised the potential in me. It was a great Open Day and first experience at QUT.
We all have those moments of doubt. You sit there and wonder, “Did I overestimate myself?” or “Will I fall to pieces and crumble under pressure?” or “Will it all be worth it in the end”. If you haven’t already guessed, that’s the position I am in at this very point in time.
In November I finally graduated (still feels good saying that) and decided to make the big move from QUT all the way to . . . QUT. Yep, I’m postponing the real world for just a little longer with postgraduate study. My new course? The Graduate Diploma in Education. It qualifies me to teach my undergraduate degree knowledge in Film, TV & New Media.
This is it. The final push. Those last few weeks of the school year when you just want to stop work and be on holidays. For the grade twelves out there, this is the last few weeks of school you’ll ever have. Then you might be off on a gap year, or to university or something else exciting! But just before I leave school, I want to reflect on the time at high school, and what the future might hold. Read more
Well, here I am, I’ve finally graduated from a Bachelor of Business majoring in Public Relations (with a Marketing 2nd major). What a journey these past 4 years have been! I managed to complete my personal goal of graduating with a GPA of 6 which felt so good to accomplish! I feel like I’ve really grown personally and professionally throughout my time here at QUT and I think I’m ready to take on the real world (even though I don’t have a job yet, but that will happen next year when I come back from a well-deserved holiday to Europe).
This will be my last ever blog *sniffle*, so I thought I’d give you some advice that I wish I had when I first started uni.
