End of an Era

I made it! 🎉🎈🎊 Actually tears of happiness, from both my parents and myself.

Ended up only with just one supp, not 2 or more. Thanks goodness didn't have to re-do thera since there were harder examiners, and I guess that 5% chance came true. The supp I did was a bit different, but had 30mins instead of 20mins like thera. Longest exam period of 4.5 weeks. Feels so weird not to be eating breakfast/lunch/dinner with a side of reading notes. Haven't even watched tv for over 2 months lol.

Shoutout to BW for literally pulling me through. Making me meals three times a day, driving to and from exams, extra treats/study food, and just making me not insane. Still had my crazy stressful moments, but would've been even more stressed without you, and reminding me that exams aren't the end of the world, and better things are still to come.

Moved back home a few days ago, so it doesn't even feel like I'm in Sydney/home much at all this trip. Haven't tidied up stuff much from America...

Off to Europe tomorrow for a proper grad trip (unlike last time was spontaneous). Apart from America where people chipped in to help plan, this is the first ever overseas trip with fam that I have not finished planning. I guess America taught me to plan on the go, and at airports whilst waiting to check in. Sorry not sorry for all the spam to come. I've lost count how many planes I've flown this year. First time catching a 6am flight though. Doesn't help I've been sleeping at 2am since exams finished a few days ago. I don't feel as excited this trip compared to other trips...Probably it's just a shock that I don't have any study to do for a while, and my body isn't used to not sitting at a desk and studying.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
