School’s out (for summer)!

The day is finally here, the day of our very last exam of our very first year at the school of Business, economics and law at the University of Gothenburg! Long sentence there…and the school year has at times felt equally long, long and hard fought. But in the end we prevailed and did so with great honor i have to say.

The exam intself (financial accounting) felt “good” yesterday…i don’t dare to say more than that because if i do, i’m positive that i will jinx it! It did feel good…we were allowed to have the reference book for swedish corporate and accounting law and policy to use during the exam and i have to say that i’m slowly getting used to quickly find the answer to all life’s questions in that little book. Perhaps i should have studied law instead? But nah…business and economics is where my heart lies..i have really hit home with this field of study it has to be said.

After the exam yesterday i went for an extended lunch with my good friends from school, champagnethe weather really was crap with rain all day but we eventually found cover at the local restaurant close to school. I rounded of the day with a nice beef pasta and a few beers.

Today is day two. Now i’m sitting at my mother’s place waiting to eat some good food and crack my champagne (yes). After that i’ll be heading out to spend the day and night with my friends. This is going to be a good one.

 

So long!

Thoughts at the halfway.

It’s mid-march and we’re pretty much halfway between the bitterly cold winter and the soul-warming summer. Let me say this; Sun, you have been longed for! This past week has really been amazing here in southwestern Sweden, last weekend me and some great friends of mine lit the BBQ for the first time this year and needless to say that was a fantastic feeling. And the week since has been equally pleasant; i’ve been walking the Flowers_-_Spring_Roadapproximately 4,5km to the gym three times this weeks thanks to the great, spring-ish weather. Fantastic! Keep it up, sun! 🙂

Logging on to my Uni account this week i also recieved the news that i passed the microeconomics exam we had recently, which of course is a great thing. I am lying if i say that it was all joy however, as i worked very hard to pass it with distinction, but no such luck this time. Two meager points (60p total on the exam) from the passed with distinction mark…sigh. I tried to find those two points somewhere in the exam to dispute it and get the results adjusted, but they are not in there, the examinator has done a flawless job. I am of course glad that i passed it, many others did not, but it still bothers me abit. Better luck next time (and even harder preparations of course).

It’s time to start thinking about a job during the summer break from school now too. I have made some applications to companies that i would like to meet with and build something with, but no news regarding this yet. My former employer needs me over the summer as well, i know this already, but i’m yet to make any decisions with them to this point. The coming weeks will tell which way this goes. Needless to say i would absolutely love to do something that can develop what i am learning at the university to practical knowledge; studying is not an end in itself, it must (and it will) get me somewehere with regards to a future career.

Anyways, enough ramblings for this time; enjoy the spring days everyone around the world who are experiencing it as we speak!
