It begins

The future begins. Last week, I received my final grade and except for the fact that I have not received the official diploma yet, I think it is safe to say that I can call myself Master of Science in Computer & Information Science.

It sounds good, right? But what happens next? First, I haven’t quite realized that I am done with school. I try to wrap my head around it but I cannot do it yet. Then what? Well, most people start looking for jobs. I am doing something else. I am looking for work. What is the difference you ask? Patrick and I are starting a business. However, we will still be working for other companies. That’s what businesses do. They work for each other (or ¬†individuals for that matter). Hence, I work for others but I am hired by myself.

Everything is very scary right now. I don’t know exactly where I am, what I am doing and how I will survive just one month from now. It seemed that a big theme at this year’s graduation ceremony is persistence. I will try to be exactly that, persistent. But that does not remove the fear. Time will tell (what a cliche).

This might be the last post I write while being in the United States. I will probably continue writing thoughts and updates because it is a convenient way of communicating to a large audience of people that might actually care about what I am communicating about.

I will now return to the suitcases.

    Persistence is definitely key. A congratulations for having the courage to follow your dreams even though it might be scary. Not everyone has that courage.
