I don't want this to be a stealth boast or anything like that, but I am lying in bed like a little girl all overexcited. OH is out like a light and has had a virus all week, and I don't want to wake him up just for this (although he's been incredibly supportive over the three years we've been together and the five years we've been friends.)
I just feel so bloody proud of myself although I can't vocalise it in front of my friends as they're all graduates straight from school.
I just think the whole process was such a challenge for me, I'm normally much a defeatist and I encountered so much adversity over these last four years, from escaping an abysive partner, to having a friend murdered, to losing my grandad, being diagnosed with a physical disability, finding a new partner, sitting finals whilst pregnant with morning sickness, then losing a baby at 21w the day my final assignment was due.
I thought it would never end, and it's all over. I feel like I can take on the world.

If any of you lovely mymsnetters are contemplating a return to education I would say do it everyday. You'll be amazing

Thanks to anyone who read this. I just wanted to get it off my chest

Huge congratulations! It is a great achievement. And it is just the start of your journey. You've overcome big challenges, worked hard, know a lot more about what you can do, and hopefully are a lot more confident in your talent and abilities. I absolutely love the words of Nadiya Hussein when she won Great British Bake Off.

"I’m never gonna put boundaries on myself ever again. I’m never gonna say I can’t do it. I’m never gonna say β€˜maybe’. I’m never gonna say, β€˜I don’t think I can.’ I can and I will."

And you will. You total star!

YANBU to tell us. I'm genuinely happy for you. I hope you have a fantastic day. I know graduations are often a lot of standing around and listening to boring speeches etc etc but they are really wonderful too.

kohl Tue 19-Sep-17 01:14:18

Bloody well done OP! You can conquer the world. Enjoy every second of your graduation-you richly deserve to.starstar

Congratulations OP, enjoy your day. starflowers

I graduated at 43 2 years ago. It's a wonderful feeling.

You are amazing!!!! You must have had such focus and perseverance to push forward through all those hurdles. I hope your graduation is a fabulous celebration of what you can do when you set your mind to it. And then I hope you get some rest!

Skittlesss Tue 19-Sep-17 07:44:02

Ok, you are soooo not unreasonable, lady! WELL DONE! To have completed your degree whilst all the things life has thrown at you is amazing!

Have a fantastic day and be so very proud of yourself. star
