About my blog

Hello! I'm graduating this year from the double master degree of Industrial Ecology en Science Communication at TU Delft. This blog is about my final year at TU; how do I get sick of TU Delft so I can start my "grown up life" without getting too nostalgic the rest of my life about "my" University. Enjoy reading :)



De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.


I used to be a good student, why is graduating then for me so [!&&!!lkjaodi!!] DIFFICULT. I hope to not scare any ‘still to graduate’ readers, but it might also be healthy to have a good view on what graduating can be like (difficult).

I actually knew it was going to be difficult from the beginning. I’ve been working in groups from year one to last year for my education. I thrive in groups, it makes me happy and the results are most often very good. On my own I’m not so great. I have my faults being a chaotic, social person. I get unhappy being on my own for too long … and working on a project for a year … you can only imagine the messy situation in my head. And now I have to clean the mess, because I’m rewriting my thesis. Zooming out I can do, seeing the big lines … but, I get stuck while trying to get the details right. Where’s the great groupmate who’s my opposite; structured and focussed on getting the details right.

These are just some of the issues that made me cry today, sweating over chapter 2. Luckily, my boyfriend does have a structured brain, and he doesn’t mind helping me out from time to time cleaning up the mess in my head. I’ll end this sad story with a promise … I WILL NEVER EVER DO A PhD! 4 years of research … the mess in the head will just unbearable.
