The winds of change are blowing. Seems like everything is happening at once. As usual, big changes in your life don’t usually come alone. As I’ve written before, I graduated with a bachelors degree in computer science. This, however, does not mean the end of school for me. In Finland it is more common to continue for your masters degree in this stage than to move onto the work life. I’ve also tried to search for an appartment, to buy not to rent. But I realized that in this stage, I don’t have a full time job yet, I should settle for something less. So I am throwing my money away for rent. Yes, I’m moving out from my parents’ house next month. The new rental flat is actually very familiar to me. One of my closest friends is currently living there, and moving out to live together with her boyfriend. The flat is also relatively close to my parents’ house so it won’t be a huge change of scenery for me. The bus routes to work and school are also much better than from my parents’ house.
That’s that. Going up on the educational level and also going up in the ‘adult’ status – moving out on my own. As if this wasn’t enough. I see a light in my life. A light that I’ve wished and hoped for for some time now. Something or someone. And I’m probably jinxing it just by mentioning this here. I guess it’ll be interesting to know where this is heading..if anywhere. Or at least enjoy the ride.
Nope, life’s certainly not boring right now. It’s actually a little bit stressful. There is new winds blowing in many areas of life – work, education, personal life… I can handle stress pretty good. Because if one area goes bad (for example failing a class at Uni) then I have other areas of life that are going well. Right now, every puzzle of the game is shifting and moving around. It’s scary, but it’s also what I need right now. It’s sort of like graduating high school all over again. Going to the world alone.
Got any tips/advice for someone moving out for the first time? Or sharing your experiences would be fun to hear too :)
