It was a very nice day, i got to say goodbye to the school where i’ve been for seven years. It seems so weird to me now, it all happened so fast, and i know, it’s very cliché. But it really is true.
I can still remember the first time i set my first steps into my school, when i was a little girl. I didn’t know what to expect, and the first week soon led to a mental breakdown because i thought i couldn’t do it. It was too much, i couldn’t possibly do so much homework! Haha :’) But at the time my aunt reassured me that i only could do my best. After that, everything went fine.
I wanted to study medicine, so i figured i had to choose science subjects. Therefore, i had to do biology, chemistry and physics. Which i sucked at. Biology was not so bad, but i really really sucked at chemistry and most off all physics. But i was stubborn and despite the opinions of the teachers not to pick these subjects, i did it anyway. Hehe.
And yes, i struggled. I thought i could never learn physics. I just couldn’t understand things and eventually realised i would never have the insight many other pupils in my class had. But, i never réally had regrets about my choice. Sometimes i thought: ‘What if i didn’t chose these subjects?’ But i never thought that would have been a better choice. Certainly afterwards, of course. I am so proud i did it and got my diploma.
After all, i am not going to study medicine, but yet still haven’t made up my mind about which of the following studies to take: psychology or psychobiology. The latter is far more exact, and will probably be harder for me. I hope that in the end i can come up with a good decision for myself, where above all i can satisfied with, as everyone around me says that ‘it doens’t matter what you study, as long as you love what you do.’
I also never thought that i would find my soulmate, my life partner and best friend. When i was retained i came into the class in which he was, and we soon bonded. I love him to death, we’re almost together for four years now. For four years we attended class together, which unfortunately has come to an end, as we each go our own ways and going to do different studies. It will be hard getting used to the fact that we won’t be able to see eachother every day.
Looking back, it’s been a great experience to have had the privilege of attending such a prestigious and yet intimite school. And i am very lucky to have the name ‘Vossius Gymnasium’ displaying on my high school diploma.
