Exams, projects, cold weather, and remembering to de-stress

It’s a busy time of the year now, with lots going on — a final project in the GIS course, meetings for developing a thesis outline (😅),  starting to look at jobs and next steps after the programme, etc. Exciting, and a little anxiety provoking! In the midst of all the end of the study period rush, it’s especially important to … Continue reading

A Slow Start

Hey hey! Hopefully those of you who want to apply to SUDes have done so already (well, you kind of have to have done so since the deadline passed). As you may have noticed from other posts here, thesis semester is in full swing! Mine, however has started relatively slowly. The reasons for this are multiple. I stayed at home … Continue reading

How is the weather up there?

Hi everyone! Well, the weather in Sweden, in my opinion, it’s not always that bad, but it definitely depends on where you come from and in which part of Sweden you are. It is quite sunny in the summer and the days are very long and bright. However, winter is a different story. In the south, in the Skåne (Scania) area, … Continue reading

A well-deserved break

The holiday season has started here in Sweden so there are no more activities at the faculty. A well-deserved break! 😊 People use this time differently. Many people go home to celebrate the holidays with their loved ones and some people go travelling during this period. Some students also stay in Lund and experience how Christmas and New Year’s are … Continue reading

Final Crits: The Method & Aftermath

Hey hey! As it is December, and as Tamara posted below, both SUDes classes had final crits 5-6th December and our exhibition (partially set up by me) is now open until at least the end of January.

Clear signs of the lecture period coming to an end…

Have you already heard about the phenomenon of queues in Sweden? One could for sure call it a national sport, you can also read this entertaining article by another guy over at thelocal. Now as the lectures are phasing out and deadlines for several hand-ins are getting close, the queues at the popular lunch options around campus get shorter or just … Continue reading

Winter Is Coming

Hey hey! Here in Lund, since the clocks went back and winter is beginning to arrive (as is evident from my very Game of Thrones title), it is now dark more than it is light. This presents some interesting quirks that as a Scot (from further north than here) I am overly familiar with but still never get used to. … Continue reading

Skiing in Sweden

One under appreciated attribute of Lund, is the town’s location. Just a short train ride away from Malmö, the incredible city of Copenhagen and the air travel hub that is Kastrup airport. So being a student in this northern part of the world, you feel obliged to partake in some of the unique adventures that Scandinavia has to offer, within a student price tag. One of these activities … Continue reading

A last trip

Before I started my thesis project (already 2 weeks ago), I went on a trip to Kiruna. This trip I recommend to everybody! It was an amazing end of the holidays. We’ve done so many unforgettable things. Of course I should start of with our first night, when we went on a 4 hour hiking trip, waste-deep in snow, to … Continue reading
