15 May 2015 - 1:55 pm The final term of the final semester

Wow it is the FINAL term of the FINAL semester- what will you be up to?

I don’t know if I can believe it myself…University will soon come to an end for me, and I am sure for one or two of you too. I seriously never believed this time in my life would arrive. It feels like yesterday that I started my first day as a Geography undergraduate, meeting my first year flat mates and attending my first lecture- I literally feel as though I could touch that memory, it feels just like yesterday- or perhaps an even clearer memory than yesterday- scary stuff!
