Second Last Semester and How I Feel Leo is Starting in Day Care

After months of working on my second last semester project, I handed it in this past week after. It was such a relief to finally get it done. My biggest challenge when writing this project I had conflicting thoughts several times, as I am dependent on discussion and this time, I was all by myself. But I am glad I was able to discuss with Axel here and there, and also my friends whom we have worked together before in other projects. I have my oral exam on the 21st of January, so I’m spending the next days studying and preparing my presentation.

As of February, I’ll start writing my master thesis. I’m pinching myself because when I started studying at Aalborg University, I was not sure if I will make it to the last semester of my education. My freshman days and especially the first two semesters were stressful. I do not recall anything nice from those days, other than how worried and depressed I was. I even wanted to quit. The main reason for this is that I chose to study in Danish. I struggled with the language in the academic level. It took so much energy from me, and I was devastated. After months of finding how to transfer to the same study in English, and with Axel’s help, I found the right person to talk to in regards to change of study, and within days, I was settling in my new class. Fast forward to today, and six months from now, I will be done with studies. Crazy, right?

Axel’s last days of maternity leave are approaching fast, and Leo is starting in daycare during the first week of February. I’m excited, as I know I will have time to write my thesis, but on the other hand, I am nervous. And, I am not sure if I am ready for the transition. The thought of having someone else take care of him freaks me out, but I am a positive woman, and, I will try my best not to get overwhelmed by these feelings. We will see how it goes.

Thank you so much for reading and talk soon again.

    All the best with your exams beautiful. You and Your better half take amazing pictures, not to mention your choice of colors ♥️

    I look forward to finishing school too this year.
    I really feel you in taking on studies in Danish.

    My first year was for luck of better words depressing. Unlike you I could not take my studies in English because it doesn’t exist in English so I was stuck and that meant me sticking around or quitting. I choose to stick around it’s been a long journey but soon it’s over.
    Thank you for your post it’s educative and motivating. ♥️
