While preparing my material for a case discussion in International Strategic Management yesterday a class mate told me that the grades for our first two courses this semester had finally arrived. Finally! It’s always exciting to know how you have done, especially this time around when we’re talking about the very first courses of the master program. Personally i liked both these courses, but the one in WTO-law perhaps a bit more than the one in International Business Environment Analysis (coincidentally it was also the trickier one!).
Anyways, i was very happy to discover that i received top grades in both!
Onwards! 🙂 It feels great to have kicked the first master semester off like this, i have to say.
About three years ago today I was waiting for an acceptance letter from the University of Gothenburg, a letter (hopefully) telling me that I was accepted to one of their business programs. I’m usually pretty confident about my own abilities and so on, but when you’re faced with such a life-altering possibility as a Uni-education of your choice, I too got a bit nervous and antsy about getting that letter as soon as possible, so that i would know.
Fast forward to today; three years later. I’m about to hand in the final version of my Bachelor thesis to the Uni, and I realize that I actually did it; I got a University degree! It’s a great feeling, and it makes me even more hungry for the coming two years of Master studies here in Gothenburg.
A friendly reminder told me today that I’ve been blogging here on WordPress for the whole of three years today! Incredible! It’s hard to imagine that three years ago today i just left my old job to take the first steps on this very journey that i am on right now, and i am very glad that i decided to start this blogging process that very same day. It has at times provided me a channel to put my thoughts into writing, and at times, perhaps mostly; it has been a fun and worthwhile distraction. I do know that the last several months since i left for my sejour to Canada I’ve not been posting here nearly as much as I’d like, and that will change. Either way, i look forward to the three years ahead; i know that they will be interesting and rewarding in many ways!
It’s amazing how quickly a year passes by and it’s yet again time to put the current one to rest and prepare for the next one. 2015 has for me undoubtedly been one of the most eventful ones, if not the most eventful. I’ve had an absolutely amazing exchange semester in Canada that has taught me a lot, and apart from that the spring and summer has been overall rewarding and enjoyable as well. Hey i even went fishing not once but several times this year! That’s something, it’s been ages since that happened last time. To keep things short 2015 has been a fantastic year for me, and here’s hoping for 2016 to be even greater. That’s what’s fascinating about life, that you never truly know what the future brings. One year ago today i had little cue about how great this past year would turn out. If i can say the same thing one year from now i will certainly be more than pleased.
Happy 2016 and the best wishes to anyone who might be reading this!
