This week hundreds of thousands of teenagers have found out if they have made the grade (quite literally) for places at university.
It’s been a stressful time for parents, as well as the students themselves, but with many now holding confirmed places, it’s a time to start celebrating and looking forward to new adventures as children (in many cases) prepare to fly the nest.
Changes on the horizon for one generation often herald a looking back to times past from the one above, so I thought today’s Friday Fun should take a stroll down university lane and find old student photos.
Given that social media and smartphones were very far from being a mass ‘thing’ for those of us who have children of our own, chances are your pictures (like mine) are blurry efforts in a funny shape, and that the only way to get them online is to take a picture of them with your beloved smartphone.
Regardless, I’ve included one of the few still knocking around of me – here I am with my fellow housemates, as well as our house cuddly toys, in 1995. I’m the one with red hair, by the way, very obviously dyed. Probably wearing Doc Martens and a baggy jumper as well, as that was the uniform back then.
Of course, our children will simply be able to look back through their digi.me library in the future – they really don’t know how lucky they are, do they?
So, anyone care to join me? Share your snaps of days gone past in the comments.
