Diary of a Graduand; Day 1.

"Graduand (n): one who has completed their course but not yet graduated."

Today marks the momentous event that is my first post in exactly a month, and one month has seen a lot of change. Exams and dissertations have been and gone, as have the celebrations that came in their wake. Results day brought smiles to the faces of most and yet left everyone thinking "what now?"

Now my housemates have gone and I am left in the far corner of an empty house trying to make the best of my last five days. This week seems to have swiftly become the most precious commodity I own yet without anyone around it is increasingly difficult to spend it wisely. I've got 120 hours to create a CV, apply for a jobs, and get one, pack, make ballgowns, start a business, clean the whole house and pass my driving test on wednesday (keep off the roads that afternoon). So what am I doing? I am eating luxury strawberry cheesecake from a mug with a soup spoon whilst cocooned in a fort made from two sofas and a mountain of cushions. This is my last week of student life and goddamnit I'm going to make the most of it! Plus I have no television so I have to get creative with my time wasting…

Hmmm, it's just sunk in that in a few weeks time I will officially be "Mia Salome Brackenridge–Garcia BSc Hons". Fuck me. Now I will really never have enough room when filling in forms. :|

    I know that feeling! God I miss TV :(

    Good luck with your driving test!

    I guess at least I have work to distract me…

  2. Hi Mia, I have 7 Tvs here, as well as 2 Xboxes and a near–complete X Files collection. Just thought I'd remind you. Oh, do have a good time in Coventry though, won't you?

  3. Thanks Mat, I guess It's the fact that I don't have any work lined up that is the most distracting tho!

    Thanks James. Thank you very much. My happiness levels are indeed increased fivefold. At least I have a… uh… envelope. Now all I need is your address, a stamp and some anthrax. Have a nice day. xxx

  4. I seem to recall that you have large hoop earrings. Surely they're good for 10 mins until you get both hands stuck through them?
