I am finally done with studies and exams – well, for the next 5-ish months at least 🙂
What a week it has been!
I had the week off work last week to assist me with my exam preparation – I had no idea how stressful it was going to be and decided that since I had the leave available, I may as well spend my hours at home studying instead of trying to cram everything in in the evenings when I got home.. and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! I woke up each morning when my body was ready, then hit the gym, and then got stuck into studies for a good 6 hours or so each day… and then wrote 2 exams!
What an experience that was! Obviously I’ve experienced a similar situation before when I left school, but honestly, I barely remember that time in my life (it was very many years ago!) and doing it all again as a full-blown adult (GAH!) has been a massive challenge. And I still have at least another 3 years ahead of me before I get to say that I do indeed have a degree to my name… but, we’ll worry about that as the time goes on.
For now it was just focusing on these 2 exams… which I’ll only get my results for in July/ August so watch this space!
And of course, writing exams meant that there needed to be some post-exam celebrations and my friends did a fabulous job of helping me through that 🙂
The celebrations started on Friday immediately after the exam when I went past J and we cracked open the first beer… and then carried on that night at a pub with friends.
And the big one was then going to watch Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Opera on Saturday evening! What fun that was!!! I am a massive fan of Monty Python and when I saw these tickets go on sale I immediately bought a bunch and then recruited some friends to join me 🙂 And it was the best time! I laughed away all the stress from the past few months… definitely a perfect way to end off the post-exam celebrations!
If you’re a fan of Monty Python, I highly recommend seeing this show! The actors are absolutely brilliant, and the cast have been chosen so well for their parts that they actually look very similar to the cast of the original ‘Holy Grail’ movie! It is super impressive!
I now look forward to having my evenings to myself again (am expecting a fair amount of boredom!) and having the time to get out there each week and work on these something new’s again!
