It is finally time for me to write that caption. I AM BACK IN SWEDEN. Everything happened very quickly, and I am extremely surprised that I am already back in Stockholm. The finals were tough. And by tough I really mean that they were horrible. Me and Pauline studied for weeks straight, trying to combine group projects and exams. These weeks meant early mornings and late nights, a lot of Redbull and coffee. But in the end, it was definitely worth it. We wrote our last exams on the 13th of June, and have been waiting for the results anxiously since then. And then it happened. I passed all my exams and got the last grade on the morning of the 22nd. I quickly rebooked my flight, ordered a taxi and left early morning the 23rd. Now I have been home for a couple of days, just relaxing and trying to cope with the fact that we survived the finals period.
The months in the Netherlands went by quickly. When you’re living abroad there are different cultures and people, and the time just flies by. I am really glad that I decided to go to the Netherlands, mostly because of the people there. The Dutch are so easy-going and nice, and the fact that basically everyone speaks English is amazing. My semester abroad has been really good, and I appreciate that we have the opportunity to go abroad on the ISM program.
The upcoming months will be really relaxing, and I will mostly be reading some books and just preparing for the third and last year. As I have mentioned previously, I am going to do my internship at a digital agency in Amsterdam. Right now I am trying to find somewhere to live during that time period, which is definitely easier said than done. I am constantly searching, but it is really difficult. Cross your fingers!
This is probably the last post from me for a while, so I would like to wish all of you a pleasant summer and we’ll see each other in a couple of weeks!
