havoc Posted June 29, 2016 Share Posted June 29, 2016 Well nobody probably noticed, but I have not been posting for pretty much the entire year. I did lurk around the site though. As for why, well it has been a pretty hectic year. In the last quarter of my third study year my mother got diagnosed with breast cancer and that really took up most of my time last summer, together with assuring I did not flunk anything. Well afterwards during summer vacation I was basically in charge of the household, as my mother just had her surgery and was starting on chemotherapy. She did not react well to it and got herself a urine way infection and spend the next two weeks in the hospital. After the summer vacation I was busy again with school this time for my final year and having to deal with my minor, as well as a lot of stress at home. After the second term I had to start on my internship and on my bachelors thesis, which basically comes down to a full work week. My mother was still recovering at that point and I did not get along with my supervisor, which did not help with all the stress. Somehow or another I still managed to succeed and get my bachelor, still haven't quite figured out how I managed to do it. So yeah I managed to get my bacherlor in chemistry. Only thing left now is to decide what to do afterwards. Still have not quite figured out what to do next. I am torn between finding a job and going for a master in chemistry. I just cant seem to make my mind up about it, working sounds like a good decision but I wont be earning as much as I would with a masters degree. On the other hand if I go for my masters degree, I will have to start living on my own (no problem there), but I will also have to pay for that all. Which will mean I have to start borrowing, and that will probably amount to 30.000- 40.000 euro which to me is quite the sum. I just cant seem to figure out what the right decision is. (Note it was not my parents paying for everything, were I come from you get studiefincanciering for 4 years or the length of your study which covers most of the costs minus any material needs.) I just needed to get that off my chest for a bit. That and brag a little bit . Kurisu-Chan, Dergonu, Funyarinpa and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
