[:en]Not too cool for school [:sv]Tillbaka till skolbänken[:]

Fashion, Lifestyle

[:en]As some kind of result of OCD I’m once again back in school. I have no idea why really as I already have two degrees, one in journalism and one in political sciences. Then again, I reckon one can never learn enough and hence I strive to continuously learn something new. Life is all about learning new things right!

This semester I’m actually taking some courses which are of use both professionally and in my private interest, one of them being “Trend analysis” which is somewhat of a semi serious course giving insight in how to analyze trends. And this is not only fashion (I wish!), but regarding trends in society in general. It’s gonna be really interesting.

However, I do have to keep in mind my earlier post about multitasking. I do need to balance work, studying, blogging, travelling, and spare time and not do too much and lose focus on what’s important. I believe in personal growth though and that’s why I’m once again back at uni. Hence I’m taking my favorite backpack to school on this first day of lectures. Wish me luck! 🙂

En av dessa kretsar kring trendanalyser. Det verkar intressant och jag tycker aldrig man är färdiglärd. Däremot får vi se om jag fortsätter att plugga efter denna höst. Är riktigt sugen på att gå en fotokurs till våren, men någonstans måste jag även ta en titt på mina egna tips om multitasking för att få allt att gå ihop. Jag har trots allt ett heltidsjobb, bloggande, resor, studier och någon slags fritid på det. Men än så länge känns det kul så jag kör på. Dessutom ska jag plugga på Malmö Högskola (eller eh, universitet heter det tydligen numera, men som Lundastudent är det som att befinna sig i två helt olika världar både vad gäller kvalitet på undervisning samt kursupplägg med en något… friare syn på hur det ska gå till i Malmö) vilket i sig är kul då det ligger tvärs över vattnet från min arbetsplats så det är inte ens krävande att ta sig dit geografiskt.

Kontentan med det hela är att jag nog kommer att fortsätta fortbilda mig livet ut. Om det sker på högskola eller universitet är högst oklart, men att kontinuerligt vidga sina vyer och låta hjärnan arbeta med nya utmaningar är inte bara kul utan viktigt, åtminstone för min mentala hälsa. Jag kan inte tänka mig något tråkigare än att sitta sysslolös och längta efter nästa avsnitt av Hem till gården.

För att klara mig under första skoldagen har jag tagit med min favoritryggsäck och ser allmänt sådär snäll ut. Skenet bedrar… Men önska mig lycka till oavsett! 🙂

    Håller fullständigt med dig,själv ska jag prova Ersta Högskola i höst. Jag önskar dock att jag hade en lika snygg “rygga” som din. Lycka till! Det är så sexigt med begåvning,vilket du har massor av.

    Learning is definitely something we take for granted and your new class on analyzing trends sounds so interesting. Hopefully it can be applied to fashion too somehow. =) This backpack is too cute as I wish Karl was my father too and I adore that printed shirt! xoxo, Christine

      It can be applied to basically everything and of course fashion and that’s what makes it so very interesting as well. 🙂 Haha, Karl is the father of us all sweetie!

    How awesome that you have two degrees; you’ve got the looks, style, and brain; you got it all, haha! I’m a huge advocate for continuous learning and it’s something I strive towards as well, constantly trying to educate myself on things I have little to no knowledge on . That course sounds so incredibly interesting! I hold a degree in science, having majored in psychology, so I’d love to take this course, too! You have to share some of what you learn with us as the semester progresses! As for your look, I adore that backpack and that shirt is cool, too! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having the best week so far!

    XO,

      I’ll let you know how it progresses during the semester! Have the best of what’s left this week!

    Love your look, always with such a great style! I bet you will do it big because you seem to be so passionate about your new studies!
    Wishing you all the luck in the world
    and because of you I’m thinking about going to the Uni again:) I already have a Law degree ( I’m a lawyer in “real life”) but I definitely need to go to something different like fashion to be more fulfilled !

    Love,
    Isabel

      Aww Isabel! Thanks sweetie, you make me blush! And I know what you mean by the need to fulfill yourself with something else than what you do in “real life”, I mean a career as a lawyer is awesome and pays your bills, but then what? Your blog is a great way to be creative though and you know I love it!
      Lots of love,
      Thomas
