On the 13 July I had my graduation and I loved every second of it. I have been waiting all year since I qualified last August and it finally happened.

This was just before the ceremony. I took my Mum, Dad and my Gran along for the occasion. You have no idea how much it meant to have my Dad there. He worked so much when I was younger that he hardly came for sports days, ballet classes etc. So for him to come to my graduation meant the world to me.

This was me collecting my degree. My Mum didn't use zoom so you can barely see me but I am there
 The obligatory hat toss with my friends. We had to do this so many times to get it perfect!

My Mum and I. I think she was more excited than me.

Afterwards we were invited for afternoon lunch. I, however, was pretty much glued to the chocolate fountains all afternoon. I felt so sick afterwards!

It's official now and it's the best feeling ever.

Congratulations! My little sister is working on her nursing degree, so I know how hard you have to work to attain it!

Congrats again. I'm really happy for you and proud. I know you worked hard to get there and I'm really happy that you spend your big day surrounded by people you love the most.

Congratulations! Was your ceremony in a cathedral? It sure looks like it!

I love the hat throwing photo! Sadly I won't get to do one because on the rental form for our regalia there's this huge warning "CAPS ARE NOT TO BE THROWN INTO THE AIR." Mind you, maybe that has something to do with the fact that our graduation ceremonies are usually right next to a river, and most days here have at least a bit of wind. I can see that ending badly. :P

Congratulations!! We were told the school's principal not to throw our hats, or he would WITHOLD OUR DEGREES FOR A DAY. What an ass. I'm glad you got to throw yours. =]

The way you graduate is definitely different than here in the states. I'd love to chat with you more about qualifying versus graduation; it's a little confusing to me :)
