Love, Life, Loss… a roller coaster

grad pic 1This is the photo my girlfriend took before my Graduation at the University of Wollongong yesterday. I was delighted to find out that I not only passed, but was awarded a Distinction in a Master’s of Science in Dementia Care… delighted of course! I shares the day with my first nursing girlfriend Jacinta, and another friend Lynda, and then had dinner with them and another friend Kerry last night. Thank you all for joining me.

It has been a roller coaster week, with the death of my aunt, the hostage situation and death of three people including the person who held everyone at gun point for many hours in Sydney, a graduation made even more exciting by the social media frenzy started by my wonderful and crazy friend Shibley who stayed out of bed to watch the live feed (he lives in London, so went ot bed at 6am!), and then home today to face the funeral.

My first poetry book was titled Love, Life Loss… a roller coaster of poetry, and to me, that explains life in one simple sentence!

    • Thanks Paul… it is also much more than it used to be, as every time I start writing for uni now, I have to re watch all the tutorials on how to reference again… a fair pain in the butt indeed, but the only way forward to still achieve the things that are important to me… good luck with yours.


  1. Congratulations to you Kate, it’s a huge achievement to score a Distinction at Masters level, just wonderful! Thinking of you also on the sad occasion of your Aunt’s funeral.


  2. Life is such a tapestry …. you never know what is around the corner! Happy times for you and congratulations and rewards for all your hard work 🙂


  3. Congratulations Kate! At least something positive has happened for you amidst the sadness. Blessings to you and your family for Christmas. xx


  4. Congratulations again Kate! Social media inspiration more than frenzy… AA’s facebook page was overwhelmed with all the love and commendations. More power to you!


  5. Well done my friend! Kudos to you for achieving such heights…A lot of hard work and passion. You well deserved the recognition!!! Glad you partied the night away. I am so very proud of you. Hang tight and know all will be well….VK ❤ xxoo
