I had initially told a few people I probably wouldn’t go for my graduation ceremony because I didn’t think graduating from polytechnic is that big an achievement. I mean, everyone in the cohort managed to pass the whole course and graduate so I didn’t think it was a big deal. But in the end, I figured, I should just go because this is once in a lifetime and I’m quite glad I did.
Sitting in the auditorium, watching all my coursemates go up on stage was a really surreal feeling. I never really realized what an achievement it is. And in my chair, panicking about falling on stage, I realized how much I’ve learnt in the past three years and how impactful they actually were; that graduating isn’t just about finishing your studies, but celebrating your achievements.
The past three years have been phenomenal, to say the least. Going to this course in polytechnic has pretty much paved my whole life for me. I’ve learnt things that cannot be learnt anywhere else and I’ll always miss it.
I’m grateful for my class, who has put up with my nonsense and me forcing them to listen to Kodaline for three years.I’m happy with all the people I’ve met and all the decisions I’ve made. The people I met here I’ll probably not forget for a long time. But through the friendships I’ve forged, I’ve learnt a lot about people and myself.
Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. May everyone move on to better things!
Thanks to all friends, mothers and brothers for coming woo!
