On Wednesday my mum and I had a lovely day in London for my second graduation ceremony! Last August I finished my Masters in ‘English: Issues in Modern Culture’ at University College London, and due to weird academic calendars my ceremony has only just taken place a year on. It was great! We were wined and dined on champagne and chocolate eclairs in the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre. Thanks to everyone who supported me on the course, and particularly those who contributed to the first instalment of my fees when I started my crowdfunding campaign in 2014 – including Hugh Bonneville and Sir Tom Stoppard! Excellent people. I’d like to eventually continue onto a PhD in English or Environmental History, but I think I’ll put this on the backburner for a few years. I’m universitied out.
