The Sunday Post #9 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my weekly wrap-up post. I am signing up with Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event.

This past week was pretty amazing! I finally got my Bachelor’s diploma, as the official ceremony was this past Monday. It’s so nice to be able to touch it, see it, and know that I’ve been able to sign up to be a substitute teacher now. I’ll hopefully be able to find a position for about four hours per week in a high-school close to my home starting in January. Can you tell how excited I am? We don’t do the capes and hats here in Switzerland, but we did get a nice scarf with the Uni logo on it, and it was the first time graduates got one! It looked really cool when we were on stage with diplomas and scarves ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yeah, it also really felt like it took forever! Most of the people I started Uni with finished a year before me… So that last year was tough both because I had a lot of work (I had changed my 2nd major) and because only a few of my friends were still around…
      Have a great Sunday, Claudia.

    • Thank you Melanie! I’m very happy for me, too ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so nice to finally get my hands on that diploma, it is proof that all my hard work has paid off – even if I’m continuing to work on my MA degree now.

  1. Congrats Lexie! You’re actually kind of lucky not to have the gowns! I graduated with a BSc back in July and we had to wear them, they’re actually really uncomfortable, and the hood (which has trim that looks a bit like your scarf but in University colours) wouldn’t stay put!

    • Congrats to you, too, Laura! I agree, I didn’t really want to have the gowns, but I was really happy we got something official to make the whole experience more ceremonial ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!! I hope you enjoy teaching. It is very rewarding!
    I will never forget the day I graduated. Texas State streamed it live and had a recording saved somewhere online, which was good because I was in such a daze by the fact that I WAS GRADUATING the entire time the speakers were speaking, I don’t remember much of what they said! I went back and watched the video and got to see myself walk across the stage.

    • Thank you Charlie! Yes, I can’t wait to start teaching, actually. LOL, our ceremony was filmed, too, and it will show up on the uni website very soon, so I can look at it when I’m not so excited about everything that’s going on around me ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Congrats! You look so happy with your diploma and what a great achievement!
    We don’t do capes and hats here neither, although that scraf you got looks nice! We didn’t got anything like that when I got my diploma’s. I hope now you can find a job you want :).

    • I’m definitely very, very happy, Lola! I’m also happy we did get a little something to remind us of the ceremony later, the scarf is really nice, and I hope it will be a new trend ๐Ÿ™‚
      Happy Sunday!

  4. Congratulations and I hope you like substitute teaching. It is really interesting that you don’t do the caps and gowns thing in Switzerland. It is very sensible. I just followed you w G+.

    • Yeah, it’s different than in anglo-saxon countries, for sure. But it made me happy that we all still had something that was the same for all the graduates, it made it even more official ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by, Steph ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Greg ๐Ÿ™‚ I still have more studies to finalize before I’m all finished, but at least now I can see the end of the tunnel ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I don’t feel bad about the cap and gown, but I was really happy to get that scarf! Have a great week yourself, Katherine ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Naomi ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m hard at work to get my MA now, and it’s amazing how different the classes are.
      Have a fantastic week ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yay!!! *throws confetti* Congratulations Lexxie! Big hug! I’m so excited for you – that’s a major accomplishment and I hope you’re able to find work substituting easily – I don’t know if its like in the states, but around here we tend to be desperate for even semi-qualified subs, let alone one with a bachelors!

    Thanks for the shout out, I’m still feeling rather proud of myself for last month ๐Ÿ˜€ Have an amazing week!

    • Thank you Berls! I’m very happy to have finally achieved to get my BA degree ๐Ÿ™‚ And it shouldn’t be too difficult to find work substituting, I’d really like the high school closest to me, though… We’ll see.
      You did so well in November, now you just have to continue to be good in December ๐Ÿ˜‰
