About the changing world all around us

Okay I haven’t been here in a long time, guilty as charged. Sometimes its tough to get everything done at once 🙂 You see I have been quite busy since my last post!

1. Budapest

Renny and I spent almost a week in beautiful Budapest. I highly recommend a visit for anyone who has the chance. The city was clean and charming, the food was great, the sights were breathtaking, and romance was in the air. Not only for us, there were lovers everywhere. People from Budapest love their city and really show their hospitality to visiters who come to admire it. I will be posting more on Budapest in the coming days, but if I have peaked your curiosity you can stop by RennyBA’s and see highlights from our trip.

2. Final exam and graduation.

Three days after I came home from Budapest I had my final exam which consisted of a presentation of my master thesis and defending my work for two judges. In Norway there is no routine graduation ceremony. You pass the test you’re done. hehehe so No in spite of the cool picture above I did not “do the walk”, nobody did. I believe the students set up their own party at a later point in time since not everyone graduates at the same time due to the judging process. My presentation went very well though, and I was so happy to see three coworkers, and Renny in the audience cheering me on. I may not have done the ‘walk’ but I certainly did the happy dance when I was finished!!

3. New Job!

Yesterday I got a phone call confirming that I got the dream job I applied for!!! This is probably the happiest news of all, since of course Graduation is a big deal the main reason (besides learning of course) that we go through this exam process is that it ultimately leads us to new challenges and opportunities in our life afterwards. I can’t reveal too many details about the job yet because I’m not sure everybody has been informed, and I don’t want somebody to stumble upon it here. I did apply for several jobs so its not so obvious…don’t worry. So I will post about that when the news is official. But for now I am in 7th heaven with everything going my way. And I am going to savor that feeling because Lord knows it does not last hehehe!! Hope you are all well everything is coming up roses where you are too!!!
