Throwing away old Converse always feels like the end of an era. I bought these in Amsterdam on my matura trip 1.5 years ago. Those were great times, yet so much has happened and got better ever since.
Reminiscing about two years ago when I decided to apply for my major and loved cheesy quotes from Fahrenheit 451.
How is uni going?
As of today, I am done with my first semester. All my courses are done, and all my exams are written. I do not know if I have passed, yet, but I am optimistic. Also, I am already enrolled for next semester; second semester, done with being an Ersti.
The last two, three weeks have been rather stressful. Uni exams and Italian exam have been straining. My room is a mess. My library books are overdue. My laundry detergent has been empty for a week now.
I am ready for my semester break. So ready.
I have been asked a lot lately, whether I am still enjoying my study major. Most people tend to decide on a major within the first semester, thus we have already lost a third of our class.
Well, I still love my major. It is still exactly what I am interested in. It is still still the perfect mix. I love the department. I love the little class size and the friendships its already brought me. I love how many choices I have.
I think, the best indicator of a good fit is the level of excitement when the new university calendar is released. I was so ecstatic.
There is so much to do. I already have so many plans, and they all involve continuing my major. So, if you are wondering if I still enjoy my major: YES! To be honest, I am so grateful for having found a major I truly enjoy. I am so grateful for the excitement and fulfillment it brings me. I do not know what the future will bring, however, I am simply glad that I am currently happy.
Thanks for reading.
