Week 18-20 in Finland

So these weeks have been very interesting ones indeed. It’s the start of a new year, many of the past semester’s students are gone now, but I’ve already started to meet some new cool people. I also have new courses, one in GPU programming and one in data analytics software. I’m also attending a course in Finnish so hopefully, I’ll be able to do some small talk in Finnish before finishing my studies. For me, these first weeks have been fun but at the same time, it’s been filled with a rollercoaster of feelings. It’s starting to stabilize now and…

Week 11-14 in Finland

TL;DR: The last month in a summary The last month has been a hectic one. It has been full of interesting events both on the personal and the academic plane. There have been developments on the master thesis work, I’ve been in contact with the marketing coordinator of Åbo Akademi to discuss further exchange between Sweden and Finland, I’ve presented a speech about going abroad at an international afternoon event. At the same time, there has been a lot of fun going on at the personal plane as well. There has been some great parties, beer pong tournaments and movie…

8th – 10th week in Finland

So this has been 3 long weeks, and even though I thought that I should have more time to write, the last 3 weeks have been even more intense than I could have imagined. It has happened so much and it is thus first now that I even find some time to write it all down. The 8th week was a super intense study week, almost every day I did nothing but study all the time. I finalized reports and worked on projects before their deadline. Unfortunately I also became sick just before this week and the long days and…

6th week in Finland

It’s now the 6th week in Finland and suddenly I can really feel that the autumn has come. It’s beginning to get colder in general, the leaves have shifted color and started to fall, and everyone seems to be increasingly more busy with university assignments and exam preparations. During this week the tempo has in many ways felt like it’s slowing down just a bit. I’ve been mostly at work with different studies but have also been able to pay for a Finnish sitz, discussed details about the thesis work in Jokojo and been to a Fantasy sitz at Nyländska…

2nd week in Finland

This week started out with me getting sick, it was not too bad but I coughed for several days and I didn’t attend any parties for this period. But my classes started and since I didn’t want to miss the first lectures I went to them anyway. The courses feel like they’re going to be very interesting. Right now I’m taking 3 different courses, one called the development of server-side web services, in which we’ll among other things use python and Django to create a basic eBay-clone. One called experimentation in computer science and engineering, in which we’ll learn how…
