And Here Comes Life…

People say life is like a series of steps till you reach the ‘ultimate goal’ but I have always considered to be something similar like C.S Lewis described Narnia as – Concentric Circles we shed each circle like a layer as we move on to the next part of Life. Now this sentence I wrote without any intention of sounding philosophical, but if I did (even a teeny bit) well good. ūüėõ

I wrote it with the intention of trying make you visualise how I feel and perhaps many others like me feel, when it comes to Graduation.

It’s not the same when we¬†leave¬†school or high school or even college…Graduating University just makes me feel…experienced…and let’s say grown up.


And when you are like me not planning to be a student again it is a very emotional thought. But what follows that emotion are some different thoughts…Mixed emotions rather – here are a few examples of what will be¬†going through my head…

  • As soon as we get the degree we are proud and have a huge smile on our faces but soon it’s gonna be “OMG I need a¬†Job?! Where? What? When???”

  • But graduating from University also means that we feel a bit more confident…we have a few internships on the CV… our course was most probably specialised in a field you want to work in. Some of us even have portfolios to show off…


  • After that Graduation day photos become old on facebook and instagram – within a few months the same or similar¬†photos will appear on your timelines with ->¬†#Throwback


  • When you get a job and start really busy schedules you may even miss those long nights in the Library… (most of you *wink* )


  • And when we start renting out apartments and paying bills and doing chores… we will remember that student halls¬†taught you a lot of those things already…and somehow hopefully being the independent working youth wouldn’t be scary!


So I am hopeful and I think Newcastle University did teach me a lot of lessons…curriculum – extra curriculum and even ‘life lessons’…

How were your experiences??? What do you think it’s going to be like??? Leave a Comment! ūüėÄ
