Graduation Day 2016

Hello!

  I'm now officially an undergraduate!

  The matriculation exams where on March (for me, anyway) and after that I have been busy studying for entrance exams but now it's all over. My work, well school-related work, is now done and I couldn't be more happier.

  I haven't had the easiest last three years, some might have witnessed this with their own eyes. The stress and the unknown future were quite hard on me and sometimes I just wanted to break down and cry. But I got up, did my best and graduated with moderately good grades. I could've done better but I also could've done so much worse so I'm pretty satisfied with my results.

  Both my school's graduation ceremony and my own graduation party were on Saturday, the 4th of June. I was so nervous about going on stage to get my certificate and my graduation cap that I hardly recall any speeches or performances that were held before the actual graduation. After the ceremony, in true Silvia style I had a really bad headache which later on turned into a migraine. None the less, I had a wonderful day and would like to thank everyone so very much for coming and making the day special. It was truly a day to remember. A special thanks to Marc who kindly photographed the day for me.

  Now on to the next adventures. I don't know what the future holds for me and at the moment I'm okay with that. I''ll keep you updated on my entrance exam results and whether or not I get in to university to study German. I'm naturally hoping for the best and I had a good feeling about the exam but nothing's certain yet. For now, I'll spend a month working in a museum.

  A big thank you to everyone who has been supporting me throughout my school years, you guys are amazing and I wish I could thank you all in person. Also a big thank you to my school (forever a Luostis-girl!) and thank you to my fellow graduates. These three years have been full of tears and hard work but also laughter and good moments.

Until next time! Take care!
-Silvia

P.S. The graduation cap is still white and clean. I promise to take good care of it.
