A backpack full to the brimThe last stage of my journey has drawn to a close. All that remains is a rucksack packed to the brim with know-how, expertise and many great experiences.
It seems like it was just yesterday. I’ve already told you about the start of the last stage of my journey. Now I am already at the end and I can proudly call myself a “bachelorette” – and I’m not talking about the TV show. No, I’m talking about having completed my bachelor's degree. Now I can say that it is possible. It is possible to combine a bachelor’s degree with an internship. This is something that my predecessor Andrea Müller had already shown. The important thing is that you draw up a schedule from the start, stick to it as much as is possible and make an early start on all the little jobs you have to do. It is indeed possible that something unexpected happens along the way. That is why it’s a good idea to schedule enough time to get things done. And that doesn’t only apply for your studies. This is something that is a good idea in day-to-day life, and you should make sure that you recharge your batteries in your free time so you have enough energy. to properly apply yourself in your daily work. A positive side-effect of this is that you also get given more responsibility.
While I am happy that this intensive period of study is behind me, I will sort of miss it. I was always learning something new and making progress. Something I particularly appreciated was the excellent support I received from my colleagues. Hey guys, thank you for always challenging me and motivating me when necessary.
Back to the topic of responsibility: I was in charge at the most recent blood drive, which I organised and implemented. What I learned from this and how I got it done is something that I’ll talk about in my next diary entry.
