Feeling a little proud of myself at the moment. It has taken a total of 8 years but I am FINALLY a graduate. I changed courses 3 times, worked both part and full time, had nearly 3 years of misdiagnosed illness to cope with and was pregnant and gave birth twice but I did it! Definitely felt like giving up so many times but I stuck with it and I am so glad that I did. I want to be a good example for my kids and telling them that they can achieve something against quite a few odds will make it worth it. As will being able to get a better job with better pay to support them.

Now to find a job that lets me put my degree to good use! Well once I’ve spent some time with my youngest of course ;-)
