Excuse my dork face I’m all swollen and bleurgh from whatever my body is doing atm but I have some really really exciting news and I just wanted to share!! As some of you guys might remember a few weeks ago when I had to be admitted into hospital a few times urgently, unfortunately the week after all of that - whilst my ears started going and I was admitted again - my dissertation to complete my BMus degree was due!?!
I’d already had to defer my final year as from Summer 2014 I was completely debilitated and unable to play my final flute recitals. I was aware my recovery was going to be long and tough and something I had to give everything to, so I didn’t want to defer one module of my entire degree all over again as the past two years have unfortunately proved ‘don’t say it’s over until it’s really over’! It’s been a whirlwind to say the least and I’ve been too close too many times to the end so this is a massive achievement for me!
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS: I just got my mark back for the dissertation I somehow managed to research and everything else in less than a week aaaaaand I got a 2:1!!!!!!! I passed!!!!!!!!!! I’m so SOOOOO happy I can’t believe it!! Whilst I was on track for a first before my health problems, I truly am just so chuffed I’ll be graduating this year - especially with a high 2:1! It’s testimony to my strength through the worst chapter of my life battling with my own mortality constantly and it’s a reminder to myself that yes, I CAN JUST DO IT and to never let these illnesses defeat me or stop me!
