Wow what a ride!
I stepped up on stage on Friday and received my parchment. It wasn't until they called out my name ("And for the award of the Bachelor of Midwifery, Emma Karen Archer") did it FINALLY hit me that I'm finished my degree. I'm done with being a formal grinding student and am now F'REE!!!! of the ties that bind me.
We'll ignore the fact that I've already received an automatic email to tell me I'm done, and I've registered as a midwife, and have clients and caught babies and been paid already. It seems that having this piece of paper handed to me makes it all So Much more REAL.
