2.00pm, Bonython Hall
The University of Adelaide Graduate
Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Sc.)
So this post is technically going to be my graduation ceremony stories :)
Another achievement in life is unlocked, alhamdulillah. All praise to Allah for which He made it possible. Alhamdulillah tsumma Alhamdulillah.
When I first received my university offer letter, I think I was half awake, still in the state of disbelief. I was quite anxious but at the same time I think I overwhelmed myself. I still remember how I used to look up at the sky, looked at the plane and told myself, I'm going to fly up there somewhere, aiming for studying abroad. And to my surprise, I just did. Completed my bachelor degree. If ever people asked me what was the best thing happened in my life, it was going to Adelaide and meet bunches of people whom I'm gonna treasure for the rest of my life. My 3 years was never easy. I lost mom, failed in my biochemistry test (under pressure maybe while admitting it's the toughest subject I enrolled and still hate it until now, haha) and some sort of disappointment with a creature called guy. I guess emotions got me after all. Once it was interrupted, everything wasn't on the right place. Knowing that is my weakness now, I have to pay a little more attention with this heart.
On my way to the grad hall, I met my so called clingy manja Adelaide sister :') She's my girls talk type of sister.
I miss her so much!
And..apparently we had many more shots together -_-
And she can't let go of her unnie
When I entered the hall, I feel like tearing. Reflecting on how I was doing. The toughest year was my final year. I struggled. Indeed. When I received my award, I think all my hard works have been paid off! You just know it when you can finally yearn with satisfaction :)
It was placed on my seat.
I'm part of my university entities :)
They picked up the right flower.
Roses is my fave.
My 1st bouquet of flowers ever received.
It was literally Spring, so I expected it should be sunny and warmer than Autumn. That was my main purpose of graduating in Spring not forgetting waiting for Ain who finished her studies last semester. Too bad it was actually very cold and it feels like winter! I think it was in the middle of season transition, so it rained heavily during my grad ceremony. Bonython hall is pretty much sound proofed, so I couldn't hear anything and alhamdulillah as soon as the ceremony was over, the sun rose after a while.
First pit stop, the university hub.
While waiting for the heavy rain to tone down.
Sisters for life,
your forever unnie.
Got Santhiya as well!
My lab partner on my second year.
My used to be mutarrabi,
the thinker, the creative one.
She's just perfect <3 i="">3>
Yuchi & Nadrah <3 i="">3>
Been through a lot with you yuchi, glad that we've made this!
Nadrah, thank you for be part of my special day.
You're the best personal assistant ever!
Congratulation to everyone in this picture!
I don't get it why Ain still need to wear heels.
I sent my family off the next day. They had to go back to Malaysia as everybody was in the middle of semester and work. So I was left with another week with them :)
So I went to meet yuchi to celebrate her grad day!
Despite the thunderstorms and rains,
we still manage to get the best picture!
The next day was the graduation ceremony of Izzati and my former housemate Hajar :)
All praise to Allah for this blessing!
Goodluck for your phd journey kak Siti. you're my inspiration :)
When the '93 babies gather to celebrate hajar :)
Alhamdulillah, everything was smooth. I am blessed.
I'm writing with the hope that I can update my blog just like this for my master degree soon.
I have another mountain to go. So please pray for this girl :')
