Graduation - Cocoskies | Illustration, design & travel blog

Let’s have a little lifestyle post shall we? I feel like I’ve not done one of those in a while! The main highlight of this month was definitely graduation. After three years of solid work I now have a Bsc in Psychology… woohoo! It was such a wonderful occasion accompanied by beautiful warm weather. It was so lovely to see all my friends one last time. I also feel like it was my final chance to cling onto the title of ‘student’- I’m already missing the student discount.

On the day, like most people would be, I was so worried about falling over on stage but luckily that didn’t happen. It actually all happened so quickly! It was sort of surreal wearing a graduation robe and mortarboard hat, but it finally allowed me to register what had been achieved in the years prior to that day. The past three years has undoubtedly been a laborious time in terms of deadlines and exams, however, memories have filled the vacant spaces between each workload and stressful times have enabled new found friendships to strengthen even more.

And on that note, I will leave you with this video. A good friend of mine was given a pair of Google glasses by our Uni and asked to create a vlog of what it is like to experience graduation day. It features a beautiful poem that he wrote in under a day – which is a great achievement in itself! All the components combined make this an extremely moving video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. See if you can spot me.

If you’ve also graduated this year, congratulations!! And if you graduated a while ago, I hope this video brings you a little nostalgia!



Congrats on graduating, Philippa! You looked lovely. Your friend's google glasses film was really cool too!

Hey congratulations! I graduated this month too (21st July) with a BA in History. The google glasses film is such a lovely idea and I wish someone at my ceremony had done that. The whole day went by so fast there's already so much I can't remember hahaha!
