Graduating

I found out yesterday that my final grades for my degree were in. I'd only seen the result of one of my projects so far and although it was a substantial element of the year's work I wasn't at all sure how my other projects would have gone as I was working on them completely alone. It's very difficult to stand back and give an honest assessment of your own performance and you end up comparing yourself to others. I had hopes of a top award but I felt comfortable that I had probably got a 2:1 or a 2:2 with graduation being my absolute minimum goal.
I'm pleased to report that I managed to gain a top classification in every project! And that means I gained a first class degree! So I'm over the moon and I want to shout it from the rooftops!
I'm also pleased to report that my colleagues, James and Mark exceeded themselves to gain a first and a 2:1 respectively with the top award also going to two extremely talented and capable young filmmakers Rory and Tom of Brown Bread Films. Watch this space cause there's more to come from all of us and I'll make sure you all hear about it.
I have mixed feelings about receiving my result because, although I'm glad I did well, it also means that I'm finished with a course that I have enjoyed immensely. It's been a fun and productive three years where I've made friends I know will last a lifetime and discovered things in myself that I didn't believe I had. I will miss all the staff and students horribly and hope that the connections I've now made with more junior students means I will still get to hang around for a bit longer! Very best wishes to all that have graduated with me, I know you will all exceed yourselves.
