Thoughts on (Finally) Completing my Studies.


That's right! I have officially completed my course! I have obtained my Double Diploma of Events Management and I can't event begin to describe the feeling that I have right now.

Actually, I can. Pride. Pride is the feeling. See, I was never a good "classroom learner". I floated through school with "so much potential", doing only the bare minimum required of me. I graduated with 'good' grades, but was never the one to apply myself, which is why I am sososo glad that I did the one thing my lazy high-school self swore she would never do, and took up tertiary studies, because the fact that I managed not only to self-motivate, but to 100% apply myself and put my heart and soul in to my work on top of everything else that I juggle makes me feel the most proud.

I finished three months early. I feel so accomplished when I think about the leaps and bounds that I've made since school (or even since last year). I also feel not quite right. Empty, in a way, because my studies were all consuming over the past year. I would get to work, make progress on my assessments all day, then rush through all of my
actual job's tasks from 4-5pm. But now.. Now I feel as though I have so much free time. I've forgotten what it was like to have breaks during the day. I'm relieved, though. So many things that were a huge part of my life prior to beginning my studies had to take a back seat while I was focusing on my course. This blog, for example, has been increasingly neglected as I progressed, and I am beyond excited to get back in to it.

I learnt a lot about myself during the course of my studies. I learnt that I'm far more motivated than I had ever imagined, I learnt that I really can do something when I put my mind to it, and I learnt that good things don't come easy. You've got to work towards your dreams without fear of failure, because things only happen when you make them.

  1. Congratulations on graduating! I think you are able to commit more to study when it is something you really enjoy as well, it makes it just that little easier! I can't wait to graduate university, it's something I thought I would never do, but I keep prolonging my course and it still feels an eternity away, I can't believe you finished early too!

  5. Thanks, girl! I definitely have to agree with you there - had I been studying something I wasn't passionate about, I doubt I would have done this well.

  7. Thanks, girl!
    I completed an online course since I work full-time, which makes attending actual classes difficult. I'm from Australia, so it's probably a company you've never heard of aha - Ivy College. x
