Graduation: Done

I don't want to write today. I just came home from a friend's place. We were three ITPD classmates in total and we were just chilling a bit after the graduation ceremony today.

My face feels like it's slowly dissolving since my friend has a cat and I'm allergic. It's, not terrible, but my nose is runny and my eyes a bit itchy. It's usually not a problem, but today it was. It really sucks...

I guess I should write a bit of reflection on the past 2 years, but right now I'm too tired. Writing is a chore today and I'm just trying to get past the 300 words so I can make some food and collapse​ into my bed.

Graduation was slightly​ anti-climatic​. First of all the university has decided to make digital diplomas which meant what we got when our name was called was a handshake from the head of education and a mug with the university logo and 'Alumni 2019'. Since we are ITPD students (the weird post-it​ note kids on campus) a couple of the students had made and printed diplomas for us (see bottom of post). It's beautiful and so amazingly true to what we've done at this program.
Second of all not all of our classmates were there. Some decided they didn't want to spend the time going to the event while others haven't finished their thesis yet. Those who were there were concerned​ about the relatives they had brought.

Everyone simultaneously​ wanted to get out of there as fast as possible and stay together for some last moments of company. We have spent the past 2 years together after all​.

I will have to write something about the experience it has been to do my Master's here in Kolding. I have learned so much and gained a lot in close to every possible way. I really wouldn't want to be without.
But now it's over. This chapter has ended and on Monday a new one begins. It's sad, but I'm excited at the same time. I hope this means I'll finally get the deep sleep I've been longing for in the past few years.
