My bachelor is almost over

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.

Love,

Anna
