All my friends have their last day of uni tomorrow. It’s so weird to think of it. If I didn’t have Mayana, that would be me, too. Last day of classes EVER, about to start an internship.. about to finish a degree.

I wouldn’t change anything though, and I’m not wishing anything were different, I love being a Mama and Mayana was very much planned. It’s just so bizarre to think of all my friends graduating, without me.

And of another long year stretching ahead. Uni. But then I think about how fast this year’s gone and realise that before too long it will be my turn.

I’m a tiny bit jealous. But also kind of glad that I’m not so close to being out in the real world, just yet.

Most of all I’m proud of my friends for getting this far. There were about 300 of us when we started our degree… we filled an entire lecture theatre. Now the entire cohort fits in a normal-sized classroom. I know they’re all going to be awesome teachers, and I’m so excited for them. I can’t wait to hear all about their internships and the exciting job opportunities they’re going to have.  And getting all their tips for when it’s my turn next year.


  1. I know how you feel. I'm a few years behind in my degree, because i took time off to get married & have my baby. Sometimes i look at them, and then look at my neverending pile of assingments, and feel jealous- until my baby smiles at me, or my husband kisses me on the head, and then i remember just how lucky i am.

    Well done on continuing with your studies. It's a huge acheivement- and sooner than you know it you'll be receiving that Bachelor as well!

  2. I know exactly how you feel, cause that was my two years ago. If I wasn't getting married, if I didn't have too many things on my plate and fail that subject, I would have been off to internship.

    You're right though, the year does go fast. Now I'm graduated, and holy heck, it's nearly been a year after Uni already!! It seems sureal...

    Next year will go super-quick Zoey. Just you wait and see!

  3. You know, it's different, but I'm pretty sure that having a husband and a baby qualifies as living in the real world! :D
    I'm hoping to end up there (both in terms of marriage and a full time job) pretty soon myself!


Thank you!!
