I haven't been posting in a while so thought I would update you on recent events that have kept me a little busy. Last week I graduated from Northumbria University!


What was also great about last week was that Laura graduated the day before me (see her graduation post here), so we had an amazing couple of days seeing each other graduate from Uni. Here's a little catch up with what happened.

After meeting up with Laura's family in Newcastle on Wednesday night we had a catch up before Laura's graduation. On the Thursday it was an early start, getting up at 6am in order for Laura to be ready for her ceremony. It was an amazing experience and I was so proud to see Laura graduate. After the ceremony, we went for a meal to celebrate with her family and then went for a meal in the evening for just the two of us.

After meeting my family at the University, it was my time to graduate. Before I knew it I was on the stage shaking hands and becoming Andrew Smith BSc (Hons)! On Friday evening we went for a meal with my family and celebrated both of our achievements.

It was a great feeling to have graduated with Laura and that we could move onto new things together. By the end of the summer we will have moved to Liverpool to live with Laura's family while we both look to move onto the next stage into employment, and then we will decide where to start renting our own place once again.


I've had an amazing time through Uni and couldn't be happier to have met Laura while being here. I'm excited for what the future will bring and look forward to moving on to the next chapter in both our lives.

I hope everyone else who will be graduating this summer has an amazing time!

Andy.
