First exam week, check!

Long time no see?

It’s been a while since my last post and I’m very sorry for that. I’ve been quite busy with many things and now I finally got myself to write here again, since the first exam week is finished. I have to say I’m quite surprised how easy it actually was, a lot easier than back home 🙂 There is certainly nothing to be worried about if you just stay alert on the lessons, or at least attend them. I studied one week, each day something about the subjects. The results were just fine!

Last weekend I had a superfast visit to Finland, since I suddenly got myself a job interview. The visit was worth paying for, since I got the job! Unfortunately the negative side is that I have to spend my summer in Helsinki 🙁 I also had a one day trip to Paris, which was lovely. One day is certainly not enough to really get to know Paris, but if you can walk fast and just want to touch the surface, you can make it in 10 hours. I didn’t have time to climb up to Tour Eiffel, nor visit the museums, but I saw many beautiful things and enjoyed sunshine. I also had a chance to use my beginner-level French (three courses in JAMK is definitely enough for getting around and ordering food, asking directions etc.), which I had already practised a few times in Brussels.

Spring has come to Antwerp, and the temperatures have been as high as 18 celcius! However the cold wind has sometimes a bad effect on these sunny days. Now I’m really looking forward to April, since then we have again a holiday season (2 weeks no school!) and this boy is heading to Andalucia! I try to remember to write here as soon as something special takes place here! See ya!
