Does that mean you've graduated, or is it the end of the year? Congrats, either way!

Graduated, I think I don't have my grades yet, I think that's not for a few more weeks, but I'm just glad it's over and done with... I will especially not miss writing essay with several thousand word, word counts ~shudders~

A job would be nice, but there's not much going around where I live, but looking elsewhere.

Just trying to find a job right now, applied for a work placement, that was advertised through the uni, and put in for some other things, but still waiting to hear back from those.

Aside from that, I've no idea, though it might give me the chance to finish up some stuff that I've not had the time to do, due to dealing with Uni.

Good luck with the job hunting, not easy given the climate right now, but I'm sure you'll find the right niche for you

Just a "small" update, got the last of my grades in this morning, there was a potential issue with one of my modules, but it turned out not to be one... so I guess I've officially graduated now.. or don't I get to say that till I get the paperwork side...
