Graduation

Our graduation took place at the University of Nottingham on December 10th and most of us managed to hang around for a few days to reconnect and reexplore our old hangouts.
Over a month later, I’m still amazed by the culmination of my degree. I can’t quite believe that the months of hard work are over and that I have an authenticated document to prove the fact.
I’ve taken December and January to visit family in Pakistan and am getting ready to return to Vancouver where the job hunt will begin.
I do find myself getting nostalgic about the times I’ve spent at UoN but I’m moreso excited about properly starting my career. I’ve started putting aside the post-apocalyptic novels (courtesy of Margaret Atwood) to concentrate on CV building and googling non-profit organizations. Vancouver is such a great place to work, filled with a multitude of employers in my field of interest. So many opportunities for professional development- I’m excited!
For that, and to get back to my running regimen too. I really went to town on the Pakistani food and the leisure of a chai-sipping, couch-sitting lifestyle but who can resist the temptation of mixed tea? No one, I tell you.
