After having spent close to 20 continuous years in school, seven of those in university I am finally done. Soon to receive the official paper that states I have a Bachelors in Computer Science - Software Engineering.
Unlike a majority of students that graduate college/university, I am not frantically job hunting since I'm already working in my field.
Therefore over the past three years, this full time work and part time school was a delicate balancing act. Moreover, this has been my routine for the past three years. Gladly, yet sadly, this has come to an end. Over the next few months I'm going to have to transition into an adult 'working life' and try to fill the void left by the hours of school work that pre-occupied me with something useful.
So, here are a few questions for you:
- What have you done (or would you do) with those piles of notebooks, assignments and exams?
- What have you done (or would you do) with the sudden influx in free time?
I already find myself looking for new hobbies, things to read and people to talk to. I've been spending tons my time with my family - which is great. I've already picked up a few books from the library and have a list of books to buy (borrow) in the near future.
So my main questions is - How do you end such an important chapter in your? Or am I making this a bigger deal than it really needs to be?
