I Graduated

college graduation ootd
So a funny thing happened yesterday - I graduated!!!!! Granted I'm still in college and doing an add on, but yay, officially graduated. I'm actually qualified to do something.
Flashing back to three years ago it all seemed a little out of reach. If you're a long time blog reader you'll know that i dropped out of IT Sligo as it wasn't for me. People were very quick to judge. Dropping out is considered such a bad thing in Ireland but I'm so so happy that I dropped out of something I hated and found something I love instead.
I know many people who've stuck with courses they absolutely hated just because they didn't want to be seen as a 'drop out' and now they're stuck with a degree in a field that they have no interest being in.
I believe everything happens for a reason and if I hadn't gone to Sligo and dropped out I wouldn't be doing something I love.
Especially because my course 'Social Media Marketing' was a new course and didn't even exist the first year I applied to CAO. Crazy times. It's kind of cool being able to say you were the first to graduate from that course.

There were a few obstacles in my way - maths, economics but I got there in the end. If anyone is curious - my dress is Penneys three years ago and the shoes are Penneys too.
I'm very proud of everyone on my course and here's to graduating again next year.
