Even though I am going to miss learning about the different cultures of the people in Papa New Guinea… listning and analysing hiphop music during lectures is surely not what I was expecting.
However right from the start it feels a much closer subject to my main subject than Anthropology, specially because of the fact that there is an entire course about crime against women, which I wont be studying during this term, but it exists as part of gender studies. Even though Anthropology was certainly an interesting time and I treasure the knowledge and experience it has given me, not to mention the wonderful people I met.
With all this sedentary student-life comes the longing for travels, I miss traveling and correcting people about the fact that there are no polar bears in Sweden! Seriously some people believe that there are polar bears roaming the streets of Swedish cities lol... I miss meeting new people from all over the world, and learning all about their adventures. However reading about feminism and queer theory while drinking my favourite coffee isin’t all that bad either. One of the first things I learned which I surprisingly did not know is that females in Sweden, first got the right’s to vote in 1921 which means it haven’t even been 100 years yet... Somehow it seems disturbing to consider we haven’t made it further than that, for example equal pay. Even though Sweden have one of the least differences in pay between the genders, males still earn more. A change need to be made! I work for and believe in the future!
Student Life is about Saving Money!
Despite missing the Nomadic life I once lived, 2017 seems to be starting out great so far, and I hope it continues!
The total cost of literature for this term was half of what I paid for a four week course last term however this course is an eight week course so there is some money left over to buy some new strings for my guitar. 😃
Also very happy about the fact that I only have to be on campus twice a week, specially because of the fact that I commute to Stockholm University.
THUMBS UP (ALMOST) GREAT NEWS!
The greatest news is however that I am definitely hitting puberty this year or as it is called transformative-puberty, it still might be a while because everything must run it's natural course. I definitely look forward to not being stuck in an inter-depression-state so yeah GREAT NEWS! 😃
Thanks for reading!
