With my upcoming graduation (YAY!) on friday, I have finally realised the time has come to say goodbye to Swansea University. You can’t replace time, it’s a fact that many know. For me, university made me into the person I am today. A person I love. It was filled with every emotion: stress; love; excitement and everything in between. University taught me a lot of lessons. It taught me that no matter what happens, truthfully things could be worse. It taught me that things will get better if I want them too.
After spending 3 years in Swansea studying Geography, the end and the beginning of my future is fast approaching, and in turn the sadness has set in. Although it is cliché to say that the friends you make at uni are for life, I know in my case, it is correct. They are the reason saying goodbye will be hard. It was at Swansea that I made my most treasured memories, the ones I will always hold close to my heart. From Varsity to Summer Ball, my friends have created the best 3 years of my life. Here, I made friends that have stuck by me through the rollercoaster of a life faced. For this reason, Swansea will always have a place in my heart.
As I take one last walk along Swansea beach as an undergraduate, the familiar sight of he Mumbles in the distance and the sound of the waves as the tide comes in, I realise the time has come to make lifelong promises. By this I mean the ones that come with saying goodbye to those friends you have lived just down the road to for 3 years. Goodbye to memories that have been made in this time.
I wouldn’t say uni was always the best, nobody will. I will never regret it though. I will always see it as 3 of the best years of my life.
I love you all dearly.
I love you Swansea ❤
