I hope you are doing wonderful in the first sunny day after a few terrible rainy DUTCH SUMMER DAYS (DUUUH?!) 😀
Unfortunately I will no longer write blogs due to less and less time available.
My plan for now is to graduate (if possible), only GOD (i.e. my supervisor) knows if that’d happen 😀 The coming months will be tough for me because I currently work on my thesis (not very intensively though). That’s because it’s summer.. the mood for studying doesn’t really come very easy, BUT ALSO because I went on vacation. My vacation was to the FAROE ISLANDS, STUNNING nature, wilderness and you feel so tiny and you feel as if you’re in the middle of a documentary on National Geografic 😀 See the puffin photos at the end of the post. We saw hundreds and hundreds of these tiny and funny-walking birdies on the island of Mykines. They are simply FASCINATING and if you ever get the chance, really.. VISIT Faroe, it’s unforgettable, you just need to be willing to do hiking and you will create yourself some unforgettable memories. Once in a lifetime experience ♥
Besides that I also self-prepare with a few courses that I do not take for credits, but whose lectures I watch in Collegerama and white their assignments. I need that in order to be able to work on my thesis more effectively (i.e. fill knowledge gaps).
Not only this, but I do work part-time for a friend that organizes events (as I’ve mentioned before too) and now he also asked me to help with a booking agency he has with 10 DJs in there, so I just started doing this too. But that luckily doesn’t include too much work (less than 2-3h a week, maybe).
But the good news is that last week I already signed a contract as a Software Engineer with a company and I am supposed to start on February 1st. As you can imagine, this makes my graduation critical as if I do not graduate by then (which btw entirely depends on me, I realize that), means that I’d have to postpone the beginning date or hopefully I won’t be crazy enough to just say “whatever” and start working for the company and leave the university with just one more course to take..
So I wish you, guys, all the best from now on with the university, maybe I will see you around, I expect to be around at least until Feb, which makes my MSc 2.5y, sadly..
Write comments to share your own plans for the next semester / year 🙂 I’d be happy to hear from you too 🙂
P.S. Oh, btw I got a new hobby: looking after VENUS FLY TRAPS, or FLY-EATING PLANTS, my so called pet-plants and they are so FUNNY ♥ They close their “mouth” when an insect goes in their “mouth”, i.e. trap. The insect can’t escape and when it moves, it touches 6 tiny hairs inside of the trap which triggers it in the first place (so it closes) and makes it seal so it can digest the insect. 😀 Many people think this is disgusting, but I think it’s fascinating. So I definitely will keep on doing my hobby as well 😀 Goodbye from my pet-plants as well 😀
And some nice photos from my vacation, so I can convince you to visit these remote islands in the North Atlantic Ocean ♥
Isn’t this PURE HAPPINESS? 😀 Just look at their faces ♥
I totally FELL IN LOVE WITH THESE BIRDS #puffins
