Entering the adult life

I can’t believe it has only been a week or so since I’ve finished the school. It kinda seems longer than that. I imagined that after this ‘deadline’ everything is going to be great and I will have no worries in life. Well…kinda, but I’m also not that naive. And I’m not trying to say that I’m having a lot of troubles right now. It’s just that once you get rid of some obligations and responsibilities, you don’t really get rid of them, they are just replaced by others. But on the other hand—I love it. I much more prefer to be occupied with the real-life stuff, like finding an apartment and working, then worrying about studying, preparing for tests and exams. I guess I just hate exams now. So I’m actually happy that I have to deal with stuff that I feel like actually matter.

We’ve started to look for apartments in Vienna. I should be starting my PhD at the beginning of March and I would ideally like to be already in Vienna. The question is if I will be able to get an apartment till then. The other option is that I would rent a room for a months or so and then I would be able to stay in Vienna and look for apartments from there. I guess it would be easier. But I will have to wait how it works out. For now, we will be looking at ads and writing emails. Maybe I will go see some apartments this week as well. In the end, Vienna is not that far from Brno, so I guess it should be fine to go there even if I go there for just one day and go back in the evening.

This week was all about me getting back to working. I haven’t programmed in a while so I needed to get back into that. Every time I get back to something that I’ve been programming, I am suprised that everythins works as it did before. I don’t know why it’s surprising for me. It’s just that I have this feeling that if I don’t work on something continually, it’s going to degrade somehow. I don’t know. It’s weird. But everything mostly works the same as it did before, I still enjoy graphics programming and I’m committed to getting better.

The main story of next week is going to be the flat-finding. I’m gonna have to figure it out somehow. I hope everything goes well.
