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.
When I first met you we were in the heat of summer, a summer that I eventually came to realize never really seemed to want to end. I still remember our first encounter when I sat in the 747 airport bus, the window open and the warm evening air blowing in my face while I first laid my eyes on your urban cityscape. I immediately felt good about being where I was, gong where I was going. I knew that I was going on a new adventure, but I did not know what it would eventually mean to me, or how it would make me feel when I am sitting here right now, about to leave all that you have given me behind and start a new chapter of my life.
I’m so very happy for everything that you gave me, all the places I got the chance to see, all the experiences that i was given and above all; all the amazing people that I’ve gotten to know. I will never forget the moments we’ve shared. All the fun, craziness and laughs will bring me joy for a long long time to come.
This has been the greatest experience of my life so far and I love all of you who shared it with me and made it what it was.
The alarm on my phone woke me up about an hour ago, and here i am; cross eyed and still pretty sleepy. Some black coffee should take care of that i figured and brewed myself a few cups (or jugs rather, i really like my coffee). Now, why on earth would i drag myself out of the comforts of my bed early on a Saturday morning? A justified question indeed… The thing is that i decided that i have some work to do today and since i can’t do any of it later today and tonight due to other (indeed more fun) plans, the best option was to get up fairly early.
In other news the spring semester at Uni has started up well and is running at full steam as we speak. Yesterday the results from our last exam (Macroeconomics) came in and i’m pleased that i can put yet another course behind me now. Microeconomics is in the works right now and it’s going really well so far, it’s the most interesting course so far in my mind, partly since it contains some level of consideration for human behavior, even though the economic theories about man are very simplified. Anyone who who’s taken an introductory course in Microeconomics knows what i’m talking about.
In yet other news the world equity markets appear to have sucked up the heavy turmoil we saw earlier in the week, the past days we’ve seen closings in the green in most of the developed economies, although emerging markets still seem to be suffering from a capital run.
Over and out, have a great weekend anyone who might read this!
So we had a competition in the business management software SAP ERPsim at the Uni last week, and today as we had a recap of the game session and the overall results were presented me and my team found out that we’d WON THE WHOLE THING!!
Fantastic stuff, really…we each got a swanky pen for a price. But the pride was worth even more 😉
