Graduating my masters

Yesterday saw me graduate my masters. It was a very emotional day for me, I must say: I am very proud indeed of my achievement of course, but yesterday i bade a final goodbye to mmu, the university I owe so much to. Although I finished writing my thesis in London, I was enrolled there for a full ten years, so it felt like the final paragraph of a long, glorious and pivotal chapter in my life. My years as a student have been wonderful, but yesterday as Dad pushed me across the stage of Bridgewater hall for a second time, they came to an end.

Lyn and I are currently on our way back to London having spent two nights in Manchester. Last night after the ceremony we has a wonderful family meal where I felt like the star of the show. I have never felt prouder than sat at the head of that table, Lyn beside me. It has already been an awesome weekend, and it's only Saturday morning.

Hey Matt. Congrats on your graduation. When I wad down visiting Chris and family in Manchedter the other week, Chris and myself decided to drive to Alsager. We first went to out old house, which was a shell and had been left empty for sometime. We then went over to campus and everywhere was boarded up and fslling into ruin (Wes, your residence, drama studios. My old halls had bern completly demolished. It was strange walking around a place that held do many memories, but was looking like a ghost town. Thiught you might appreciate this considering your time at MMU has come to an end.

I can sympathise mate. It must have been hard - I don't think I would want to go back there now as it would probably upset me. The place holds so many memories for all of us. At least they can't demolish the friendships built there.

I'll post a link to friday's ceremony when the video is online, but how about this for a blast from the past. Check out the 33 minute mark!)
