Master's Degree

Last weekend I graduated with my Master's degree after 6 years of working at it part time while working. Hoping to finally relax a bit over Christmas! And cycle ... of course cycling!

Congrats. I know from watching family and friends pursue advanced degrees it's a lot of work.

The very thought of going back to school gives me recurring nightmares of being an adult in 5th grade, barely able to squeeze into a desk, because I didn't finish one assignment... or something. Or maybe it was because I argued with an English teacher about assigning a dumbed-down kid's version of Edgar Allan Poe, when I'd already read his complete unabridged works by 4th grade.

Thank you all ... it is really nice to be done, although I think part of me hasn't quite realised it yet!

congrats! Hope this year I'll get my master's degree too. I found writing service to buy essay online and save my time for exam preparation. Hope with its help I'll get good grades in English.

Congratulations on the achievement.

Did much the same, myself, some years ago.
