We can use 'simple past tense' while telling a story. (It is correct)

But If we construct like that , i mean i want to learn if there is any different or not.


(First I had graduated University of Oxford and then i began a new job but then i had to leave it).

The second question is:

A :I watched that movie last night.

B:Hmm..I had watched it 2 days ago.
or
Hmm.I watched it 2 days ago.

Which one more specific?

Thanks
You could use "graduate a university" in conversation but it would definitely be considered wrong in writing. I would stick to "graduate from" unless you're having an informal conversation.
