Mountain Conquered

Guess what? Guess what? Go on, guess! I have something to tell you. It's kind of a really big deal....nope...nothing? Okay I will tell you....I FINISHED MY DEGREE! 
Yesterday afternoon I printed off my 10,000 word dissertation, had it bound, took a cheesy photo, handed it in and then headed to the nearest bar!
My dissertation was the last piece of work I ever did as an undergraduate and I can honestly say it was the proudest piece of work I had ever produced. For those of you who really want to know I did it on music fan behavior on Twitter. I analysed 210 tweets from a range of music fans such as One Direction fans to Eminem fans. I would love to tell you all about it but if I talk about it anymore I fear I may blow my brains out. There are only so many times I can write/read/hear the words 'music fan' before I start to shudder. 

So where do we go from here? I have 5 weeks left of term. Those 5 weeks shall be spent making the most of the time I have left with my friends and in this beautiful city. It will also be spent job hunting and planning for the rest of my life! I can honestly say I am heart broken to be at this point. The struggle has been huge and I have climbed some frightening mountains but every struggle has been worth the fight. I am blessed for my experiences and I do not want to leave!

I am planning to do an 'end of my degree' post later but right now I am awfully tired. Months of  6:30am starts and long days in the library have finally caught up with me. I didn't get out of bed until 10:30am today. Can you believe how late that is?! I can't remember the last time I ever did that. Today is a 'me' day. Pajamas, takeaway, cake, bed, blogging and movies. I give myself one big pat on the back. I also wanted to use this post to thank everyone who has stuck with me wishing me positive thoughts throughout the dissertation battle. Your words of encouragement eased the blow.

Now I have to sit tight and pray that all my efforts and hard work will pay off in my results. Even though my dissertation has been handed over I do not feel like I've won this battle yet. Wish me luck!
