A Blog by International Students at Leiden University

All Good Things Must Come to an End

That’s it, folks.

I have graduated.

A week ago, I received an e-mail from the exam committee, stating that my thesis was sufficient enough for Master of Arts in Asian Studies. A few weeks later, another e-mail came to my inbox about graduation ceremony which will be held on the second week of April.

I will graduate on April 8th, 2016.

It felt surreal. I felt like it was only yesterday when I experienced massive stress when my supervisor told me that I had to revise my thesis. I was so happy, though. Super excited because I had done what I thought I could never accomplish: graduating.

Therefore, this marks my last post in TheLeidener.

TheLeidener has taught me plethora of lessons, especially in writing. I was never confident enough to write articles in English. Guess what? I finally dared to write one article to TheLeidener. An article became two, two articles became four, and so on. From TheLeidener, I have gained a lot of knowledge through posts written by fellow student bloggers.

Thank you, TheLeidener. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of a great student blog. I will miss writing on this website, but I will never stop reading this blog. This blog is truly the front line for international future students who want to know what it’s like living in a lovely city called Leiden and studying in the first university in the Netherlands.
