My graduation day

Hi, my name is kenny and i studied Accounting Bsc (Hons) at the university of derby.

I completed my undergraduate course last year but couldn’t attend a ceremony due to covid.

After a year of waiting for a ceremony due to covid, I finally get the chance to be celebrated alongside my course mates whoop! Whoop!!

Graduating is always the icing on the cake when it comes to education. It is that moment when you finally get to celebrate your achievements with your family, friends and course mates. Graduating with Honours is one of my greatest accomplishments. The ceremony was full of such tradition, filling me with such sense of pride in my achievement

My graduation took place at the derby arena on the 18th of November 2021.

I started my day by waking up at 4am (Waking up that early was a nightmare tbh but I was so excited That it didn’t bother me much). I live in Bedford and had to commute to derby by car. Following the itinerary, My family and I left Bedford at 6am to arrive at derby for 8am the same time the gate opens.

Arriving at derby arena, I went straight to the collection point at derby stadium to collect my gown, hood and hat which was worn and fitted for me by this very lovely lady. This moment felt really special as I suddenly started to feel like a graduate. I then had the opportunity to have some professional photos taken with my family. Thankfully, my brother paid for them so I was saved from some expenses lol.

Walking across the stage felt so lovely. Seeing and hearing my family cheering me was the best feeling ever.

Graduation day can get stressful especially after the ceremony. Therefore, I will advice that you take your pictures immediately after getting your gown.

This day meant a lot for both me and my family and having a ceremony after a year is with no doubt the perfect way to celebrate three years of hard work. So thank you University of derby for a day I will never forget and see you soon again.!!!

Finally, Since completing my Bsc Honours at the university of derby, I have went on to study for my postgraduate (Msc) in finance and I am looking forward to attending another ceremony at the arena 🙂

Manchester united VS Liverpool premier league

My experience watching a football match live at a stadium was amazing and unforgettable. Watching football at the stadium is completely different from watching it at home.

The Match I went to watch was the Manchester United VS Liverpool premier league. leaving Manchester losing to Liverpool 5-0. This is also my first and so far, only match I’ve been to.

The atmosphere was full of crowds cheering for their favourite team. majority of the stadium was supporting Manchester united as the match was held at the Manchester United, Old Trafford Stadium.

My only fear when at the stadium, was the height. I was sitting at the very top row, and my fear of height kicked in lol. If you’ve been following my blog post, you should know I’ve always said I am afraid of height. However, on this day I was super excited that it didn’t bother me as much as I expected it too. 

The stadium is a place where people change mood and emotions within minutes. I remembered everyone was joyful and happy when Ronaldo thought he’d scored a brilliant goal, only to have it ruled out for offside after a check from the video assistant referee (VAR). The whole stadium broke into silence.

Another interesting experience/moment at the stadium was when Paul Pogba was shown a red card for a high tackle on Naby Keita. At this point, Manchester United supporters loose the hope of winning the game and booed the players as they walked out of the stadium. Liverpool fans on the other hand, were celebrating in excitement.

I was also quite disappointed by the result, but nevertheless, I really enjoyed the match, and it was a great experience. 

To sum up, watching a match at the stadium is just simply awesome. It’s an experience I will recommend everyone have at least once in their lifetime. you don’t have to love football to visit the stadium. I do not support any of the team that was playing on this day. Although, I was rooting for Manchester United, but I also went because I love to be adventurous and as a blogger, it was beneficial for me.
