This week, after three long years, I finally graduated...
At least, that's the closest I can come to celebrating online. Three years of work have finally come to fruition as I received my degree. I'm chuffed to bits and that's not all. This week at work I passed my Xero Certification Award which means I'm a Certified Adviser on the software we use to manage our clients accounts.
Two certificates in one week. Did someone mention a pay rise?
It's been such a hectic two weeks, alternating my time between work and play.
Work: We've had a hard two weeks, dealing with problems and queries arising in everything we're doing. But we've done what we can and more. Every night after work I've spent revising for my Financial Accounting exams in February. Weekdays have been work, work, work. But this isn't me complaining, this is me patting myself on the back.
Play: Grad Ball. Need I say anymore? My weekends have flashed by in the blink of an eye.
These last two weeks have seen so much of my hard work come to fruition but I can't stop yet, there's still so much more to do.
