University-DONE!!!! FREEDOM!!!

Hello lovely people,

So it has been a while since I have written a blog. I do apologise but I was super busy preparing for exams. Preparation for exams was a tedious but rewarding. I know it might sound odd but I actually enjoy exams. Let me tell you why. It is all over in a few hours! All you need to do is revise what you have already learnt, and memorise and practice questions. I love the feeling of finishing an exam. All you can do is your best. An advice for perspective students- when you finish an exam and  leave the examination hall, do not worry or talk about what you wrote or had written in the exam. It is a waste of time because you cannot change it. 
Instead, be happy that it is over! J Especially when it is a third year exam! I had two exams, one after the other. Honestly it was stressful and I felt like I was going to throw up just before both of the exams. But when I finished, I had the biggest feeling of relief. It was totally worth all the stress. The results came in very quickly and I found out that, I got a first for one exam and a 2:1 for the other. I was very happy to see the results J Also, the last time I told you guys that I finished my dissertation! Guess what! I got the result for that as well and I got a 2:1!!! Yaaay!!!

I believe it is important to celebrate hard work and achievements, so there is something to look forward to. After finishing the last exam, the students and lecturers went to a pub in Greenwich to have a celebratory drink. It was an exciting day. One of the students bought a bottle of champagne and popped it open straight after the last exam. Everyone was so happy! My cheeks were hurting from smiling so much J It was nice to see a lot of people out of university environment, especially the lecturers.

Being in the pub with fellow students and lecturers made me think about the years I have been in university; the amount of amazing people I now know and I have made so many wonderful friends. My University experience has been absolutely brilliant! I am very excited about my graduation. Seeing everyone in the graduation robes and the hats will be emotional. The graduation is in November so I have a lot of time to prepare for it J

Since I have finished university, I have been enjoying the freedom from university but I have also been applying for jobs. Students are told today that there are no jobs. Well, let me tell you something… there are a lot of jobs out there. There is just more competition. While you are in uni, make sure you do well in education as well as get experience related to the career you are interested in. Do not worry if you have a part-time job in uni which has nothing to do with the kind of job you want to apply for after uni. I am saying this because there are always transferable skills. Just make sure you have some experience working while you are in uni. It gives you a much better chance of getting a job. I am not going to lie, it a harsh world out there when applying for jobs because there are a lot of graduates and the employers are getting picky. So do what you can to make yourself the best candidate and stand out from the crowd. You have to really sell yourself. As long as you have a good degree (2:1 or above), work experience and the drive and passion for hard work, then I believe you will go far.

Getting away from the serious matters, it was my birthday on the 5th of June!!! In addition to the end of university celebration, I celebrated my 22nd birthday J I went bowling on the day of my birthday with some my favourite people. I looove bowling… Then that following weekend I went to Piccadilly institute for a big birthday celebration with my awesome friends! It was a club in Piccadilly Circus. To be honest, I still feel 21 so this was the anniversary for my 21st birthday ;) I might stay being 21 for a few years J

I will enjoy the freedom while I can before I start full time job. Make sure you enjoy yourself with whatever you are doing, and reward yourself and celebrate your hard work and achievements.

I will speak to you soon and update you about the job search and the exciting things that are coming my way J
