The Gallery (1)

I’m really enjoying my journey around various blogs at the moment and have come across a concept in a blog that I really like…it’s called The Gallery. Each week over at Sticky Fingers, a theme is posted and bloggers all over the world find/take a photograph that sums up that theme. This week the theme is self portrait. Ok, so I pick my weeks to join don’t I? Well here is my effort….

I actually really like this picture! I don’t like many but I think it sums up my recent achievements quite well. For the past couple of years as some of you know, I’ve been studying on a CIPD postgraduate diploma course at Uni as a part-time student whilst working a full 37 hours per week. It hasn’t been easy at all but after 2 and a half long years I’ve completed my studies and in October last year I graduated with my Postgrad Diploma followed by gaining Chartered status with the CIPD this March.  I think the smile on my face sums it all up. I’m smiling, I’m happy and I’m a double-graduate! All my hard work, effort and stress paid off and it was all worth it, although i’m never ever going back to University..enough is enough! I’m very proud ..even if I do say so myself {sig}

    I am always amazed at those people that manage to work full time and study on the side, it must take such a lot of discipline and hard work. Congratulations – you definitely earned that pint!
