Editorial #125

Studying JÖKEN at the moment, I find that many people are telling me how relaxing the course is. Even if they have not taken it themselves, how much time I should be having on my hands. They smile at me and say: Wow, you can sleep ALL DAY! This is due to the layout of the course. It is a 2,5 month course, one test in the end, no assignments at all. Therefore, it is very easy to postpone studying for ‘next week’ or ‘next monday’.

I have accidentally taken advantage of this to the fullest, but now it is time to get back to the books. Although, I find this rather difficult. How do you find the energy it takes to sit still in a study hall for eight hours straight, reading sometimes pretty boring material? I know I have done it before, but I do not understand how. It feels like the person who was capable of that, is not me. At least not any more. Last week, I went to school at eight in the morning and fell asleep in the library at Lux an hour later.

I do not know where I am going with this but if you have any suggestions of a solution for this problem, please contact me!

This is the last issue of the semester and the last one for me as editor-in-chief. I have been part of Nådiga Lundtan for a little over a year now. I started as a writer in the fall of 2014, continued as editor in the spring, and became editor-in-chief this fall. Now, Amez Arazu is taking over and I feel extremely confident that she will do an extraordinary job. I will go on studying economics on the B-level and then hopefully, I will be going on an exchange semester next fall or spring. I realize that is exactly what my predecessor Philip Wrangberg did, although, I will not be going to Singapore (as you can read about in a previous issue of Lundtan – #123). So, Amez, if you had any doubts of what to study, now you know.

I know I will miss working with LundaEkonomerna. It is self developing to take much responsibility, and the organization offers many possibilities for personal growth. Just think about all the breakfast- and lunch lectures, courses, parties, seminares, you can attend. If you are dedicated enough, you can do whatever you want if you can just pitch your ideas well enough (something you also can take lessons in through LundaEkonomerna!).

I am proud of what I have accomplished here and I will always remember this time in my life. Many people have done this before me, and many people will do the same thing after. Still, for me, it was something special.
