Last week I was lucky enough to get to go along to the Concert Room of St George’s Hall (Literally one of the most beautiful rooms I’ve ever seen) for the launch of Sibro VR – a totally amazing experience! Sibro are a Liverpool company who specialise in using virtual reality equipment to supplement and improve the education experience for young people, which is something I support literally 1000%. They create immersive education experiences that multiple people can experience all at once, just using a VR headset and a pair of headphones.
So you’ve passed your degree, made it through graduation without tripping over your own feet, you have an actual adult job to go to Monday through Friday, but now what?
It’s a totally new frontier for most people, and one that none of our years of schooling and standardised testing and summer holidays have prepared us for. It’s been two years since I graduated and had to go out into the big, wide world, and upon reflection, these are the ten things I wish someone had let me in on before I became a real grown up. Or at least, the attempt of a real grown up that I am now.
So, it’s been three, four or five (or even seven, shout out to any architecture students reading this!) years. You’ve been through questionable choices in Freshers week, the unmatched high of student loan days, the unmatched low of spending your student loan in a week and living in poverty for the rest of the semester, you’ve survived exam month and felt the sheer glee of handing in your dissertation or last assignments, and now you’ve reached the last hurdle. Graduation.
