it's all over now...

wow, it's been almost half a year since i handed in my thesis and since i last updated my blog.

in the meantime i've managed to pass all my exams - the final one yesterday - which means that i'm now a magister artium, or M.A. i only just received the grading for my thesis last friday, which is a perfect 1.0. :-) thanks to any readers crossing their fingers! overall my grade should be a 1.2, if i did the math correctly. i should get my diploma some time next week.

it's been quite a ride... eight years of university might seem like a lot, and i can't say i disagree. however: looking back, i can't say that i'd do much differently a second time around. over the years i spent a lot of time working in my profession and figuring out what i want to do. this has helped secure me a job at a local internet agency as a project manager, which i start this coming tuesday. i'd been freelancing for them over the past six years or so, and without that history there's no way they would have hired me. i could have probably accepted a full-time position from them earlier - but i am glad i finished my education first. it's nice to have a degree to fall back to in case things don't work out with this job, and it also gives me a very pleasant sense of accomplishment. :-)

so... life's been very good to me lately. i hope everyone else is happy too! ;-)

as for this blog: i might transform it somewhat and keep it running. but, knowing me, this could well be the final post. even though i don't think more than a very selected few people ever read anything i wrote on here, it did help me a lot with my thesis. for one thing it was helpful to get a bit of a feel for blogs, and for another it most certainly helped to keep myself motivated by posting goals and status updates here at the end of most days.

a big thanks to my readers and to blogger/google for providing this service!

all the best,
