Ever since my college days, I had plans about pursuing the next step in my education, but the direction and timing for that were never as clear as this year. Now, four years since I last finished university, a great opportunity arose for me to start my graduate studies in a school and program that I’m confident are a great investment for the future.
However, as school has started, I find myself adjusting to a different pace of life. Less time for hobbies and increased time management. I cannot say that I’m spending less time in front of the computer, but the intensity and pace of work that needs to be done has changed. It’s hard, but I like it.
This chance of pace and intensity in my own life makes me even more aware of the increasing pace of changes going on in Albania. The whole country has become even more open to the outside world and thus to many more influences, ideas, approaches, people, information, etc, etc.
Most of this is good, and some of it is not so good, but everyone will have to adjust and learn to manage life going at a different pace!
