So as promised here is my post to fill you in on everything that has happened in the last month post-exam completion!
First stop was Bermuda: To attempt/complete my second half marathon within a month. All I can say is that it was tough! Much tougher than the Plymouth half, mostly attributing to the heat and humidity which my Exeter training regime had not helped me prepare for! Here is the pre-race photo!

Don’t we look cheerful! Little did we know how hard the next couple of hours would be! But we all finished! Yay!
Next stop was supposed to be back to Exeter for a week, but my lovely Mum convinced me to change my flight to stay an extra week at home! Which was lovely! I even got to enjoy some time out on the boat in the beautiful sunshine!!
After a week of relaxation it was time for my 2-week insurance internship to begin! It was an absolutely wonderful experience and has really shown me that I am going into the right industry for me and that my Masters will be incredibly useful!

Here is a photo of the 4 of us on the internship enjoying some of our downtime in London!
On the final day of the internship it was DEGREE RESULTS D-DAY! Although I was pretty sure I was going to get the 2.1 that I needed in order to get onto my Masters, it was still a pretty stressful experience reading through the email with my marks! In the end all went well and I got a 2.1 overall (so depressingly close to a 1st, but oh well!) Also all the hard work revising for my exam definitely paid off as I got a very unexpected 1st on it! So MASTERS HERE I COME!!
Finally I ventured back to Exeter nearly a month later, after what was supposed to be only a week at home!
I have to admit I feel a little bit at a loss of what to do with myself now that there is nothing to study for! So after spending a day sorting out the mess which was my room and starting to think of having to pack up said room. Em and I ventured back to her house in Hampshire in an impromptu road-trip for an interview that she has this morning! It was lovely to have a two hour drive to have a proper girly catch-up!
I have another long-awaited catchup in store for the weekend in London, and I promise to be better with updates in the next months!
