Today was one of those days that felt really long, but you quite don’t seem to know what exactly has you so tired because you didn’t really do much. I had 2 classes back to back, one 3 hour class and the other one 1.5 hours. However, when I got out of class I felt really content with my day. Even though it felt like a really long day I feel like I got a lot out of it.
My first class is called Corporate Communications and Public Relations. I’ve never taken a class of this sort because my major is Journalism and Media Studies, but surprisingly it seemed like an interesting class. Rutgers divides communications and journalism but most schools combine them, this being the case at Vesalius. In this class throughout the entire semester I get to analyze the corporation of my choice. I want to choose a corporation that deals with films and television shows, which is the industry I’m interested in being involved with. The class also allows me to experience some pretty amazing opportunities like attending the FoodDrinkEurope annual conference. In this conference CEO’s from some of Europe’s most important food and drink companies will be present! Never thought I would have the opportunity to experience something of that sort.
After classes were over I walked out the building took a deep breath and walked over to my usual tram stop, VUB. Of course, my tram left me while I was across the street so I was stuck waiting for the next one, no worries though because the breeze felt spectacular.
As I walked back from school and the cool breeze blew on my face I thought “I feel good about myself and boy am I happy right
now!” There’s nothing better than the feeling of having a clean slate and starting over again. Or the feeling of mending within yourself wounds that were still not fully healed. Or just knowing that you’ve accomplished something that you worked hard for. An experience like this just truly humbles you and helps you appreciate everything you have in life especially the people you love and the one’s that stick with you through the distance apart. I am truly grateful for this opportunity. I definitely will return back to the states a better person. 🙂
