So this is it: I have just taken my last undergraduate exam. I can’t tell you how happy I am about finishing final year but at the same time I’m sad because this means that I will soon be leaving Manchester and all the great people I have meet here over the years.
This exam period was really exhausting because I had three exams in one week. My first exam was Macroeconomics on Monday, May 18th and since I had enough time to prepare, I thought the exam went reasonably well, although I had a bit of a time problem at the end. Up next were Contemporary Issues in Financial Reporting and International Human Resource Management on Thursday and Friday respectively. Luckily between International HRM and my last exam, Globalisation, I had a break of 10 days so I decided to take the weekend off.
On Saturday, a friend and I went to Anglesey with the International Society. This society organizes trips every weekend and it’s a really nice way to get to know the surrounding areas because it’s cheap and you don’ need to organize anything. Anglesey is the largest island in Wales and was really gorgeous. A relaxing day out by the sea was exactly what I needed to motivate myself for the remainder of the revision period.
I have booked flights for my parents, who are going to come to Manchester for my graduation in July. I’m looking forward to their visit because it’s always nice to show family (and friends) from back home the place where you have lived for three years.
At the moment I am spending my days catching up with friends – Who knows when we well see each other again as everybody is getting ready to start their graduate lives in the UK and abroad. I, for my part, don’t want to leave Manchester just yet so after spending two weeks in Germany, I will come back at the end of June.
I’ll tell you more about my plans for the summer and the future in my next and final blog post next month. But just to give you a bit of a taste: I will once again pack my life into a suitcase and move to a new place in a different country.
