Last Thursday was my last day of university and today was the graduation (which I didn’t go to since I was in Colorado Springs for a BoardingArea Conference). I literally cannot believe I am done with uni. Hello Miles & Points full-time!
That’s right. Miles & Points full-time. Blogging. Travelling. Award Bookings. etc, etc, etc. I’m so excited. Graduating from university means that I can now focus on what I love to do – which is blog, write, and travel. My degree is in Informatics (essentially Computer Science mixed in with other stuff), which is hardly relevant to aviation in any way.. but, I still love to do what I got my degree in which means that I will have other side jobs making apps, websites, etc. My main priority, however, will be travelling and blogging.
I can’t properly express how liberated and free I now feel. No longer being tied down to stay in Seattle 9 months of the year. No longer having to worry about pointless assignments that won’t benefit my future. No longer having to wake up early and drive 50 minutes in traffic to class, etc, etc, etc. It isn’t that I didn’t enjoy uni, I did, but I just didn’t take it “all the way” as most people take their university experience. I have a few friends, but the fact that I travelled virtually every weekend for the past four years while attending uni made it hard to really connect with people and socialise.
All in all, I really enjoyed my university experience and it’s something I won’t forget because I learned a lot and I met amazing people, but… I’m just glad that part is over and I can now really do what I love full-time. Many of you know that I’m moving back home to Poland and I’ve gotten a few questions as to how that will affect my blogging/travelling. Thankfully, it won’t. I’m fortunate to be able to do this blogging from anywhere in the world, so I will continue it and be dedicated more than ever now that I actually have time.
And it isn’t like I will move to Poland and stay there for the rest of my life. Absolutely not. I want to explore Europe more and eventually figure out where in Europe I want to live. For now I will just use Poland as my “base” which means I don’t have to live in hotels full-time, but I can still travel a ton.
I need to catch up on my trip reports – I know some of you are wondering where my Etihad First, THAI First, SWISS First, etc. reviews are.. and they’re on their way. I now actually have time to write them! At the minimum, there will be a blog post every single day – sometimes more, but no less than one (unless there is a serious emergency or something). The future is bright.
So that was my past week. I flew back from Fiji on Tuesday, finished classes on Wednesday/Thursday, and flew to Colorado Springs on Friday (honestly, I’d rather see all of my blogger friends than attend a boring graduation ceremony).
As always, thank you for sticking around and reading – expect more great content and awesome trips!
