The end

This time last year I hosted a series a series of guest posts about learning on my blog. I was busy studying and a bunch of lovely people helped me keep my blog busy. This year it's different. I’m in my fourth and final year of undergraduate studies and I have only two exams left. I’m planning to be done with those at the beginning of July and then I’ll spend the summer writing my bachelor’s thesis.

I’m not done with my studies just yet but I’m close enough to be nostalgic when I look back.

Studying political science wasn’t something I dreamed of as a child and it wasn't my first choice. Today I’m really happy I made that decision though, because I love political science and I think my professors (well, most of them) are absolutely brilliant. I know that I’d be very sad if it was my last year and I knew that I’d never see them again. I’m lucky enough to have a chance to continue my studies for another year and get my master’s degree if everything goes according to plan.

There are various feelings boiling inside of me; I’m happy, sad, nostalgic and excited, all at the same time. I’m within reach of my first finish line, there’s only a short distance ahead of me, two exams and some writing.

  5. Happy you about to fulfill one of your goals. And you will find over the years that often finishing something not only means moving on to something greater but means saying goodbye to other things. It can truly be bittersweet.
