G-10: Graduation Minus 10 Days
Posted by Emma Nica
So, finally it has started. The final countdown. Only 10 more days until I finished my undergraduate degree and graduate with a BA in International Relations. It also means that I leave Sorengo, Switzerland: my home for the past four years. So I want to document these last ten days of my undergraduate life.
Today was Thursday. Unfortunately, I had stayed up quiet late to write some more on my thesis, so I overslept and missed my first class. It was US Foreign Policy. But I woke up in time to make it to my 11:30 French Translation class with Pauli and Greg. The class wasn’t particularly interesting, since we had just turned in our final paper, so there wasn’t much to do.
From 12:45 to 14:30 I stayed in the library and worked some more on my thesis chapter. Then I headed to Global History. The professor wrapped up the class pretty nicely, and with that I was done with history classes for life. Apart from the final which is on Monday, but I’m not counting that. Class ended at 15:45 and I come home to Airone.
Today was a very sunny and hot day in Lugano. After a week of rain, thunder, and hail I just hope that the weather holds out until the 20th. That’s all that matters to be at this point. Sadly, I couldn’t enjoy the weather too much, since I had to hurry home and write more. I’m kinda behind in my thesis. I’m supposed to turn in the penultimate copy tomorrow, but I don’t think it is going to happen. This chapter on human rights theory was a lot more difficult to tackle than I imagined. But I think I’ll finished it by tonight. After which the rest of it will be remarkably easier to write. Not much left now!
