31 Dec Time for a cup of hot chocolate
To my mind, Christmas and New Year is a time of small miracles, when people smile just because they feel magic in the air. Everything seems brighter and people are full of excitement waiting for the upcoming changes. During Christmas and New Year I enjoy wrapping myself in a blanket, drinking a delicious cup of hot chocolate and reflecting on the year which is coming to its logical conclusion.
Has anything extraordinary happened in your life in 2016? Or, probably, anything which made you happier? In my case it was one semester in Germany. Our faculty has a special programme called «Double degree». Practically, you are receiving two Master’s degrees at once – one in Turku and another one in Regensburg. And it was amazing to see how different the educational systems in two countries are. It was an adventure full of new knowledge and friends from all over the world. It looked as if I had two fascinating lives at the same time. A truly amazing experience and opportunity. It will be great to repeat it once again.
By the way, have you already made a New Year’s wish for the year of Fire Rooster? If no, then hurry up to send a letter to the Finnish Santa Claus, Joulupukki ; ) You are never too old for it! Hyvää Joulua ja Onnellista Uutta Vuotta!
