I just found out my little brother graduated with a 2:1 in English!!!! I am literally bouncing in my seat happy! So proud of him. He is a bit of a spoonie himself with similar, albeit milder, symptoms to mine.
I’m also happy because I spent at least 15 hours proof reading his dissertation, going over it with a fine tooth comb and I was really hoping he would get a 2:1 because it was a very good essay. He analysed the American Dream in the 20th century and if it was achievable or brought happiness to anyone. He looked at three decades, the 20’s, 50’s and 80’s as reflected in Gatsby, Revolutionary Road, and American Psycho.
Anyway we’re all really proud. I think we are going to have takeaway and a party to celebrate the news.
My goal now is to try and get to his graduation in November. Its a very long ceremony and a little high pressure because he really wants me there, but I think it will be achievable. I just need my friends and family to keep taking me out and helping my rehab like they are now. Everyone has really stepped up lately and I’m thankful :)
So proud *tear*
