After a year and a half, my time at hinge comes to an end. I am thankful for the time I have spent there, people I have met, projects I could work on and all the knowledge I have gained.
I would like to share my thoughts about the last year and a half. And as crazy as it sound… it all started with a tweet.
Another year comes to an end.
Can you believe that this is a third yearly summary on this blog? What a journey!
What can I say about 2021? To be honest, I’m quite glad it’s almost over!
Another year of being a student has come to an end. 2/3 years complete. I remember thinking three years is a long time, but honestly, time seems to be going a lot quicker nowadays. Being a student (especially while having loads of other responsibilities) is a hard work, but I already start to feel a bit sad that this chapter of my life will be gone a lot faster that I thought.
Enough sobbing, time for a summary of a second year at university!
Another year has gone by and what a year it’s been! Hell of the rollercoaster 🎢 ride for most of us, right?
As every December, I like to pause for a minute, create a list of things that were awesome that year, and also some resolutions for the year ahead.
It’s really cool to look back in the past and see how we, and everything around has changed, so let’s look into my last year’s resolutions:
With all grades released, that’s the end of my first year of Uni. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, but I’m still positive
it was the best decision I could have ever made.
Time for a little summary…
Lockdown slowly eases, so I thought I will reflect on those last, really weird 3,5 months.
As everyone remembers, on March 23rd almost everything closed down and it seemed like the world is coming to an end. It has been a very stressful time for a lot of people, including myself. Workplaces shut, shelves in the grocery stores emptied, and all you could hear in tv was the constant news about more people dying from Covid-19… it was a lot to take in. I was worried whether or not we have enough food, money to pay bills, and what would happen with my daughter in the extreme case when both I and my husband catch the virus and end up in the hospital (as we have no relatives living in the UK who could take care of her).
Few weeks ago I attended a Work In The Web workshop over in sunny Leeds (if you would like to read more about the event, HERE is the link)
Workshop has been an amazing adventure and I am so glad I got to go and be part of it. I love events like this one, where days are filled with great talks and panels and you’re spending time with like-minded people. The good thing about them, you’re learning a lot more than just what’s on the agenda…
One of my resolutions for this year was to be open for any opportunity “knocking on my door”. So when I got an email from my course leader about ‘Work in the web’ workshop, I didn’t hesitate to apply. In the end, I had nothing to loose, and loads to gain!
The year of 2019 is coming to an end so it’s time for a little recap!
Every December I am making two lists, a list of what I did good this year, and a resolutions for a next year. Thanks to being way to organised, I was able to look back on my last years lists, and can happily say that I managed to fulfil most of my resolutions for 2019. Yay for me!
Friday, 29th of November 2019 was special for two reasons. Firstly, it was my birthday! Yay for being a year older. Yikes! And secondly, the main point of this post, I attended my first ever hackathon!
