Yesterday I got my MSc results, I got a DISTINCTION!! Such relief when you see all of the hard work you put in was worth it.
This is huge for me. It has been a stressful year, I was supposed to do the MSc part time over 4 years but for some reason decided to complete it in 2 because I thought “it will be great to finish it before I leave…” I’ve also just paid if off because I didn’t have enough big costs this year 😂🤦🏽♀️
I’ve never felt very academic. Completing my degree is one of my biggest achievements, I didn’t come away from school with many GCSE’s, I had no A-levels and I was told I wouldn’t be able to achieve it. But I did and now my MSc!
In between planning my expedition, work, buying a house, training, exams and essay deadlines, it’s been intense! My graduation is mid Jan, there is some motivation to get back from Antarctica in time!
Like with all the big milestones I’ve had this year, I took a minute to celebrate, had a sip of sloe gin and now it’s back to work 💪🏽🔥
One week before I leave!
