“It does not matter where you go and what you study, what matters most is what you share with yourself and the world.” ~ Santosh Kalwar
I have to say; it is kind of terrifying to know that after the next 7 weeks of studying, my classes at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences will be over. After the next 7 weeks, I will have to do my internship and write my thesis and if all goes well, I will have my bachelor by the end of June 2020. The next months will fly by and I am not sure I am ready for it.
Last Monday, I started my minor on Human Rights and it is so interesting! It will be a lot of planning since I have presentations, podcast recordings, teamwork and readings ahead of me. I really look forward to learning about this subject since it is ever-changing and with the world we live in today, Human Rights are very relevant.
Studying gives you a sense of security, you have a schedule and a vacation after every 6/7 weeks. Exams are hard work but after those you always have a cooling down period. Knowing that this will no longer be the case after finishing my bachelor is weird but also exciting. I don’t know if I want to continue studying for a Masters degree or if I want to start working. The fact that I have no clear or set path for my future scares me however it is comforting that I know that I am not the only one. I have heard from fellow students that they don’t know what they want to continue studying or if they want to work.
I know I say school is almost over even though I still have about 8 months ahead of me until finishing my degree. But the final months are my internship and a lot of hard work. I am so ready to see if I want to work or if I want to keep studying. I like my life and I like learning something new every day. On the other hand I am so ready to put my knowledge to work and show the world what I am capable of.
As the days, weeks pass me by I think of visiting my brother in the US next May and I cannot wait! Planning this vacation and knowing I can cheer for my brother as he will walk across the stage to receive his Bachelors degree is something I really look forward to!
Anxiety of the unknown is normal and I know that everything will turnout the way it is supposed to. Having something to look forward to will keep you focussed and help motivate yourself to do the work.
