Last day of uni

A mixture of emptiness and disbelief that time flew by so quickly.

That was it.

I was neither happy nor sad.

Just a bit dazed.

Throughout the entire week, I had been wondering what would I be feeling at that precise moment when the lecture say: "That's it. It's the end."

Now I knew.

This was be the last time four of us sat together in a lecture theatre. Gosh we had been sitting together for nearly four years.

The day started with a morning tea of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

The theme is 80s, hence a number of people dressed up accordingly.

The last ever lecture of the entire 4 year course was given by Kevin McNamara. This was probably the only time a rock star was here to give us a lecture. He only lasted 20 minutes -

Before being replaced with a cowboy -

who was also giving his last ever lecture after a staggering 50 years at the campus.

It was quite an emotional speech (but he didn't cry!!) as he went through the changes in the campus in his half a century here and gave us some advice. At the end of the speech, everyone gave him a standing ovation.

It was apt that the lecturer who was the first to gave us a speech in orientation was there to gave us the last. It somehow bought a sense of closure to everything.

Well, now all that are left are 3 written paper and a prac exam.
