The End Of An Era

Yes­ter­day marked the end of an era for me. I moved out of my Uni house back home. Yup, I fin­ished Uni­ver­si­ty. It was quite a weird feel­ing. I’ve lived there for the last three years and been blessed to meet and make friends with many incred­i­ble peo­ple. Not only was it the end of my time at Uni, it was also the end of my time in for­mal edu­ca­tion. Now that’s weird. I’ve nev­er known any­thing oth­er than going to school or col­lege or uni.
I don’t real­ly know where this post is going to go, I just know I have to write it. The last three years I’ve had some real­ly good times, and made some of the best friends I have ever had. It’s odd to think that these peo­ple who I have seen day in day out are no longer going to be around all the time, just to be dropped in on or to just go out for a drink. Not only that but it’s going to feel odd that the 4 guys I shared a house with for the last 2 years are not going to be bang­ing about in the back ground. One of those guys I’ve lived with for the past 3 years and has become a very very good friend. We hope to get a place togeth­er, but even that is not cer­tain, and you know what I think thats what makes this whole thing feel so odd. For the vast major­i­ty of my 22 years I have known gen­er­al­ly what is going to hap­pen next, and now that uni has fin­ished, I don’t.
There are some peo­ple who I am real­ly going to miss, I guess they know who they are. They’ve been great friends to me over the last 3 years, and I’m sure they will con­tin­ue to be good friends. I just want to say thank you for their friend­ships, thank you for the enjoy­ing the last three years with me, it’s been a lot of fun, gone very quick­ly, but I would­n’t change it at all.
I’m going to go now, as well I don’t real­ly know what to say. It’s a weird thing this fin­ish­ing uni, but I know God will con­tin­ue to guide me as he has the last 22 years of my life. It’s cer­tain­ly the end of an era and it was actu­al­ly quite emo­tion­al as I drove past uni for the last time, at least as a stu­dent.

  1. I can only imag­ine how odd it must feel for you to leave Uni… It must be quite a weird feel­ing, and like you said, you know noth­ing dif­fer­ent from going to school/college/uni, but that is all about to change.
    I can imag­ine that it will be quite dif­fi­cult to leave all of your friends, who like you said, you see near­ly every day/every day and now it will just be on occa­sions, which will be very odd for you.
    I am sure that you will con­tin­ue to fol­low the right path with both help from your­self and God.

  3. Indeed it is odd, the hunt for a job begins. I’ve had a cou­ple of requests from design agen­cies in Lon­don to see my port­fo­lio, so we will see what hap­pens.
