Weekend Wrap-up #314 – I Finally Finished Uni!!

Posted 23 May, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 44 Comments

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.

STS #314

Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week:

No new books this week!! Haven’t I been good?

The Sunday Post #254 – Weekend Wrap-up

Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

I finally finished Uni! For those of you who don’t know, I quit my job ten years ago (I was in accounting and finance) and started Uni to get my Bachelor’s degree in English language and literature. Then, I needed my Master’s degree as well, so that I could teach English in secondary schools. Finally, I have finished my Master’s degree in secondary education, and it feels like such a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. It feels unreal! Of course, I won’t know if I actually succeeded until late June / beginning of July, but I am quite confident things will work out for me.

    • Thank you so much, Sarah! I’m very happy I finally got here. It has been a long journey, but also a very rewarding one 🙂 A small celebration with my husband on Friday, but I hope I’ll be able to celebrate with my fellow uni students this summer, or maybe in the fall 🙂

    Biggest congratulations! How wonderful to finally have that behind you. So what’s next? I know you’re already teaching- what does it mean you can teach something you want to teach more? So happy for you! Have an amazing week and stay safe.{{HUGS}}

    • Thank you my dear Berls! I’ll continue teaching – hopefully in the same school, and full time. And I’ll also get better pay since I’ll have more diplomas. I’m only going to teach English, but there’s a lot of different levels at the high school where I’m at, so it should continue to be very interesting. {{{HUGS}}}

  11. It always feels good when we are proud of our accomplishments! Well done and now enjoy your downtime. You deserve it!
