I graduated from uni yesterday and I’m holding my Bachelor of Arts in my bare hands. It’s crazy to think I graduated from High School not too long ago and started studying right away. 7 semesters of International Tourism and Event Management later, I’m done, finished, completely dazed. So much hard work went into those 7 semesters, as well as amazing internships, both in London and here in Dresden, so many awesome trips and I met some of the best people choosing to study where I studied.

Even though I’m about to start a full-time job in the hospitality industry, I still feel a little unreal about not studying anymore. I’m excited for the future and I’m building myself up from everything I learned these past few years… I’m also planning to move out of my tiny student apartment in the next 6 to 9 months. I’m terrified! In a good way, though. It’s like nervous butterflies are flatting away around my stomach.

Yesterday, at my graduation ceremony, I felt so much gratitude towards my peers, my professors, and especially my family, friends and my love for pushing me throughout this journey, believing in me, comforting me during mental breakdowns over the thesis and exams, and being there with me celebrating my special day.

I feel run over by love and I am at a really happy place right now. Nervous, but happy. And confident in my knowledge to survive in this field and face my tasks head-on, enjoying what I’ll do.

Thank you, at this point, for reading my blog and following me on this journey!
