I just emailed off the last paper of my masters.

Four years and it is finally DONE!

I feel like my undergrad degree was a cinch compared to this. It was full of blood, sweat and tears.

I'm single and live alone so no one to tell so I just had to get it out!

I just went out to the markets and bought fresh veges/fruit etc and a nice piece of salmon from the fish monger. That's my treat!

Congrats Jaffacakes - I was so over it in the end I did one read through and then emailed it off!

My hubby is doing his masters in Mental Health and I know and see the blood sweat and tears he is putting into his. He works full time shift work on top of it and it is hard.

Congratulations! I vividly remember that feeling from my own Masters journey. Am now struggling through a Grad Dip and constantly wishing I could chuck it in. Well done, enjoy this hard-earned success!

Thanks everyone!

I've worked full time the whole time, for the last three years it's been in a pretty demanding job.

I'm also the chairperson of a charity that raises close to $1million per year.

Squeezing in my masters has been tough but when I walk on stage and take that certificate I will be so bloody happy!
