Life of an IT student | January 2019

Hi readers,

January has had already it’s time of the year. And what an incredible start!
The month started of course with the New Year and was quite busy. The following couple of days I was working and the last four weeks of the minor Crossmedia Journalism started and the preparation for the exams. Besides studying and working those first two weeks, I also attended the Young Adult book club evening of the Bored to Death book club. We discussed the book ‘Noughts and Crosses’ written by Malorie Blackman. It is a book written in the beginning of this century and therefor we had to imagine a bit more how it would fit back in those days. It was a lovely evening with lots of fun.

The last two weeks of January were crazy busy. There was another literature book club night of the Bored to Death book club, held at the ‘Kaapse Maria’ café. This time we discussed the book ‘Nights at the Circus’ written by Angela Carter.  It was a fun and lovely evening and interesting thoughts about the different story parts in the book. This book club night was my little break in-between all the deadlines and to do’s. In total I had to finish four different projects of different sizes, had to give four different presentations and three exams. All part of my study.

Did not even upload a photo on Instagram, nor had enough time to read more than two books, nor had enough time for all the other ‘living-a-life’ stuff. No, the upmost priorities were these two weeks study and work.

Next month a new part of study challenge is on the way and a couple of nice small events and living life back to normal and starting with a sports and food challenge. So in total it sounds like a lot…but if I manage to do this all, it’s fine.

How did you start your New Year?

And do you have any New Year resolutions?
