Ah. There’s so many big changes happening in my life right now, it’s hard to keep up.
Oh and by the way…. hi!
I want to give you an update on everything that’s going on, but I don’t even know where to start.
Anyway, I’ll give it a try.
I’m moving out of my apartment
I’ll start where I’m currently sitting: my parents’ house. Looking to my left there’s a big mess of boxes on top of boxes on top boxes, containing just about everything I own. For the past 4 years I’ve been living in this apartment, that’s reserved for students, but it was time to move out. Because..
I got my BSc degree!
I received my final grade, and therefore passed all my exams and now have a bachelor’s degree in Sports Science & Health!
I found out while I was sitting on the toilet.
I should probably add some more context here.
I found out while my parents where helping me clean and paint my apartment. My phone was dead so I borrowed my mom’s, and spend forever trying to remember then reset my password to the university’s online platform. There was no chairs left in the apartment, so the only place (excluding the floor – the painting-friendly pants I was wearing ripped a bit more every time I sat down on the floor) was the toilet – and we had finished cleaning it, so it’s not even unhygienic.
Aren’t you happy to know that?
S and I are moving in together… eventually
For a while we’ve been looking for an apartment to rent together. Just like everyone else at this time of year, apparently. I’ve lost count of the number of landlords I’ve contacted, the number of apartments we’ve seen and said yes to, only to have someone else swoop in and get them.
But… eventually, we got lucky. We’ve found a place that’s perfectly good for us!
There’s only one thing putting a damper on our joy: We can’t move in for at least a couple of months. Which explains why I’m here (I mean physically – my parents’ place, remember?)
I have to move home to my parents until then (I feel slightly weird telling you this, mostly because there’s this whole thing where living with your parents is associated with failure). My parents are great, so it’s not a terrible thing (and I’m lucky to have them as my safety net!) – but if I had a choice, I’d prefer moving to my new place immediately!
So, what are you gonna do next?
Ugh, the dreaded question.
Anyone who’s just graduated hears it constantly.
I’d like to just avoid it completely, but that’s a) not a nice thing to do during a conversion b) avoiding problems doesn’t make them go away (they tend to grow, actually).
So here’s what I – at the moment – would like to do next:
- I’d like to get a master in health science (cand.scient), but I don’t know if it’s realistic.
- I’d like to get a job where I can earn enough to pay my rent and make a living, while it’s not terrible for my mental and physical health.
Quick question – what do you think the odds of a potential employer finding this is? And how do you think finding this blog affects my chances of being hired?…. asking for a friend.
This is a big transitional period of my life, I’m partly through and still alive. Hopefully the same will be true for the last part. Yes it’s a time with a lot of worries and ‘what ifs’, but there’s also a lot of potential and new opportunities.
All I can do is breathe, and tick one item of my to-do list at a time!
