Starting Monday, the rare Sweet will be dragged away from its natural habitat - the drawing den, aka the bedroom - to live in captivity for at least one semester - aka school.
That´s right, my university classes will restart on Monday. Why so late, you say? Well, they restart after the German autumn/fall break, and the semester will end officially in March, though lectures will stop on Valentine´s Day, so they can cram in the exams before March 31st. Christmas break will be short, but as far as I´ve read the breaks between the semesters will be quite long (a month or so; I don´t know the dates by heart).
Gonna be honest here: I´m not looking forward to it. Like not at all. I mean I´ve arranged my schedule in a way that I have only classes on Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the week off, but I probably won´t be home on Monday evening before 10 pm because my classes go from 10 am to 8 pm and the next train home leaves shortly before 9 and needs about an hour to bring me home...and I will have to get up around 6 - or even earlier should I need to take the train - to get to my 8 am class on Tuesday morning, only to come home around 8 pm. And the classes on Monday evening and Tuesday morning are the only ones mandatory, with no other date to switch, which means I have to attend them. I might be able to skip them up to 3 times, but winter´s coming up, so I´d rather leave that option for when I should get sick or really am too exhausted to move a finger. Probability is that a friend of mine, who has nearly the same class hours as I do, will take me by car and we´ll share the money for gas - that´ll save us an hour - but depending on the weather (icy roads and such), and also depending on how she feels, I might be forced to take the train. She has Fibromyalgia, and if she´s in too much pain there´s no way she´s gonna force herself to drive a car for about 4 hours (that´s how long she´ll need from home to my house, to university, and the whole thing back).
To be frank, I´m beginning to wonder if going to Trier to study was really the right choice. I am downright fed up with studying. I am 27 years old, and if someone would offer me a job I´d gladly take it, but I only have my high school degree, and with that, chances to get employed are close to non-existent where I live. You know, when I started high school we were told that the degree would open a thousand doors for us, not only study-wise, but also on the job market. Then school reforms happened, and like two years before I graduated we were told that the degree was like an entrance ticket for universities, but besides that, it´s worthless. Then my father died the summer I should have graduated...I failed, retook the year, passed and moved out and away from home. Tried to get into universities for 3 years up in North Germany - failed. Then we went back, and I enrolled in Luxembourg to do English, because chances are higher to get admitted abroad when you already made two semesters. Turns out my first year did not get acknowledged in Trier, so I had to start all over again. This is now my third semester, and I will have to do another 3 to be able to get my Bachelor´s Degree. If I want to become an English teacher, I´d have to do another 3 Master years in an English speaking country to be allowed to work in my homecountry - and honestly, we simply cannot afford it. Besides, do the math, tell me how old I´d be after the Masters, and how many years I´d have to work to get a semi-decent pension. And don´t let yourself be fooled by the "Luxembourg is a rich country" cliché - the only really rich people we have are politicians. Most of us are struggling to make a living.
Which means I will either have to stop after the Bachelor´s Degree and try to find a job - which will probably end up in me doing a formation of some sort or working as a cashier in the grocery store - or I´ll stop this year and do a one year formation right away - because that option legitly exists. Right now I am debating whether I should try and do the formation starting next fall, or after I´ve tried for my Bachelor´s Degree, which would be the year after. It all depends on the grades I´ll get - and I´m not the worst of students, but exams are really hard, and I´ve already failed a couple in my first year. I might not be able to do the Bachelor. We´ll see how it goes this semester; I´ll have until next Spring to thoroughly reflect about it all.
There are a couple of choices and decisions I´ve made I´m unsure about whether or not I should regret them. Was it right to leave my homecountry just after I finished high school for entire three years? Should I have instantly enrolled in Luxembourg? Should I have started the formation instead of going to Trier?
There´s that tiny voice inside of me saying: You should have stayed. You should have made that year of English, and then either a formation or studies abroad. You would be finished now and would be earning legit money. You would not have let these years go to waste.
Interestingly, those are the things my family told me, and I think it´s also society´s pressure. You gotta be successful, and you gotta make as much money as possible, as fast as possible. Anything else is not an option.
My inner voice says the following: I left my homecountry a year after my father died. I had to stay that year in order to graduate from high school, or else I would have left earlier. My father and I didn´t get on at all, and I wanted to get away from all the drama. I knew this period would last no longer than three years, and those years helped me to find out what path I want to go, and who I really am. I could have enrolled at uni.lu directly after graduating...but in the end I m glad I waited these three years. I´ve had the most amazing group of people to work with. I´ve looked forward to go to class every day, not only because they´re fun people, but also because they made studying interesting. Some of them are now my closest friends. I´ve attended some classes there at the beginning of last year, and that year´s group...let´s just say everything made me want to run away as fast as possible. That year taught me much about academic studies, but also much about people and my own personality. It made me grow.
Now Trier...I could argue that Trier teaches me what´s not good for me. Not everything´s bad though. I know it sounds like it is, but there are classes I like. But there are many aspects I really dislike, and which make studying there harder for me than it should be. I have new teachers and new classes this semeszter; maybe my attitude will change. For now I really don´t know.
In retrospect I don´t really think that I should regret any of the choices I´ve made, except maybe the one to enroll in Trier. Granted, I didn´t make the wisest choices, economically speaking...but I´ve learned so much about myself, who I am, ahere I stand in life and what goals I want to reach - I probably would not be the same person today, had I made other decisions back then. And I think knowing who you are is also important if you´re trying to get a job, right?
And to conclude, I´ll add a quote I´ve actualy got from Attack on Titan. Didn´t they say watching TV makes you stupid? Anyways, I would have picked a quote from a different anime, but I had this one in mind - and honestly, that´s some of the wisest things I´ve ever heard (slightly altered because hey, yes, I do believe in the Survey Corps, but that isn´t really going to help with my studies, is it?)
'' The difference between your decision and ours is experience. But you don't have to rely on that.
Believe in yourself, or believe in [...] me.
I don't know...
I never have, I can believe in my own abilities or the choices of the companions I trust.
But no one ever knows how it will turn out.
So, choose for yourself whichever decision you regret the least."
And now - music!
Not the happiest of music, I´ll give you that one, but this song has been haunting me since I´ve heard it for the first time. Might not be your taste either...but even if you don´t like the tune or the singing, tell me what you think about thelyrics (← this links to a lyrics video if you´d prefer to read them on screen). This song gives me so many feels - and many of them are OTP ones (mentioning DatNachtmaehre - can you think of any, honey? )
