There will come a day when you will think you have the time to relax and prepare for an internship interview.
Then you start to have pain around one of your wisdom teeth, and since you had a bit of fever and a handful of sores in your mouth, you just think everything can be bought with the “it all comes from that teeth”. So you go to the dentist who also thinks it may come from that, and also tells you that the teeth sooner or later will need to be taken out. Ok, you take your time and decide that yeah, sooner or later something a bit more serious would happen here in Sweden that would lead to some kind of smaller operation to be carried out in a kind of foreign environment. Good news, it was not that bad, except for the anesthesia injection in the palate, which hurt a lot and made me surely look like one of those characters in the tv-series “The Bridge”. Bad news, fever, tiredness and sore throat were not caused by that, as I realized I was already sick.
Long story short, my uninvited guests bacterias are dealing now with a relative big dose of antibiotics and I am doing my best to recover, keep preparing for my internship interview which was moved because of this, and enjoy the time with my parents who just today arrived to Malmö to visit me. Reeeally relaxing and relieving, especially after some days being sick, alone and abroad, which may be one of the most lonely things I have ever experienced. However, I got a take home exam, yes exactly, regarding just those really exciting books in project management, which however I actually think is really interesting and useful. I will do my best to write it during next week or I will take the next chance.
Now everything is basically focused on the internship, which I promise I will reveal more about, once I will have finally had the interview, which hopefully will go well! Hopefully I will be able to apply for funds and have a different experience next semester, living here, “working but not working” (as internship included in the university curricula are not to be paid) on a 40 hours basis.
Today was the third day of high temperatures, a Spring day which we will not see again at least for a couple of weeks ahead. I was feeling better, thanks also to my super kind neighbor who biked late in the evening to buy me the antibiotica!, and sat by the window in the sun, managing to even get tant! Incredible, is not it? 😉
However, a last news of the week was the positive response I got regarding the summer job I think I had mentioned in the last posts. I got an offer and I will wait for the contract, but if nothing goes wrong, I should be heading to New York around the end of July and stay a month. More news to come!
Will keep you updated!
