You're now reading the blog of Rebecca Cohen, BA (Hons)! On Thursday I went to the robing room (yep) to collect this bad boy, and found myself sitting in the Philharmonic ready for my few seconds on stage to collect that little bit of paper that sums up three years of hard work. Sitting alongside some of the most talented people I know, the hall was filled with proud friends and family congratulating their gowned companions, and my hands were more than a little sore after about three hours of solid applause. After the ceremony had finished, without any literal slip ups which I'd been worrying about happening for months, my mum and I managed to grab a few outfit snaps on Abercromby Square - the location of the English offices, just outside the Sydney Jones Library. Of course my friends and I had to grab a couple of typical throwing our mortar boards in the air photos before splitting up to meet our families for food (I went to one of my favourite independent restaurants, The Quarter, for a vegetarian sharing board, and prawn and chorizo pasta). That evening we checked into a budget hotel (the less said about that the better) to prep for our last night out together as students. Suitable amounts of jägerbombs and egg fried rice later, we were ready to collapse. Groggy the next morning, it was sad to pack up all our belongings and wish each other a temporary goodbye, but it feels pretty darn fantastic to have graduated in such good company.

Best of luck to everyone else who's graduating (or has graduated!) in the next few weeks - congratulations!

  4. SO PROUD OF YOU COHEN! I knew you'd do it, just think, all of those horrible nights in the library and the fretting and the lack of sleep and the wrist ache (not like that), now totally worth it. You deserve every moment of applause, chuffed for you mate! Onto bigger and better things! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  6. Working those robes! I felt like an utter nob in them when I first put them on, especially with the pink furry hood, but I became strangely attached to them by the time I gave them back. I'm missing Abercrombie Square in the sunshine already too! Glad you had a wonderful day- you earned it. Congratulations! (: xx
