On Friday it’s finally time, I start school again! I know so many people who are tired of school and who didn’t enjoy high school even though everyone told them that “they would miss it afterwards” and “life will never be this easy again”. I have never been one of those people, I’ve (almost) always enjoyed school. Studying at a higher level has been even more fun! Everything you learn ties together, you choose the subject and you get to decide how you want to spend your time. I think that is why studying comes so easy for me… while other people study to get a dream job, I just want to stay in school as long as I can because really, in my mind it’s so much nicer to study than to work.
I think that’s the challenge for everyone, to find something that they really enjoy doing. It’s not that every second of it has to be rainbows and unicorns but if you feel like you are where you want to be then it wont be that hard to wake up early in the morning. I’ve also found that I rarely can relate to all the “weekend memes”, you know like “why is Monday so far from Friday and Friday so close to Monday” because even though I love the weekend, I certainly don’t hate the regular weekdays. However, like I said, I think it’s a challenge. It’s not an easy task to get there but if you’re being honest with yourself I believe it’s much more likely you will make decisions that lead you in the direction you want to go.
So, in two days I will start my program in the Economics of Innovation and Growth. I’m crossing all the fingers I have that this will be a good fit for me! As I mentioned earlier, the past year I’ve been studying at SU and, well, it was not what I expected. I could really use a year that turned out a bit better that the last one so let’s hope this is a step in the right direction!
All the best!
