I graduated! – University of Brighton graduation

Last Friday, on February 10th, I attended my first graduation ceremony ever. The weird thing is, this ceremony is just the first of two I will attend this year – the second one’s been lined up for months in a bit over a month, at the end of March. And the one I attended last Friday was not for my first, but for my second degree!

So, dressed in this heavy gown and a stupid hat with a frill to top it off, I walked across the stage, intimidated by the blasting lights and being so exposed to hundreds of people sitting in that very room at the Brighton Centre, just on the Brighton seafront. I shook the hand of the University’s vice-chancellor and walked off, and backstage I received my degree certificate, which joined my little gift bundle every graduant found on their seat, which most importantly included a cool alumni tote bag and an enamel pin with the uni’s star-shaped logo I always found adorable.

And the sunset right after the ceremony – around 4.30-5pm – was gorgeous, so my mum and I took a walk on the beach and generally enjoyed a very nice-weathered day in one of my favourite cities.

So now I’m officially a Master of Arts in the History of Design and Material Culture!

(Am? Have? Anyway, you know what I mean!)

Graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a First in geography, and from the University of Brighton with a Master's in history of design and material culture. Probably drinking iced coffee and thinking about buildings.
