Equality is wishful thinking. Only in death we will become equal. The typical path for anyone who wants to get into a higher paying position is usually going to university, graduate and apply for a job in that specific field or in another one.

Experiencing is the key I studied at Furtwangen University for three semesters and I got to experience a lot. I don't regret my time there and I also don't think that it was a waste of time.

Losing the confidence in something you really used to love As I mentioned in a few posts already, I studied International economics before finally deciding to change universities to study Modern Japanese studies. Of course, every time I mention this when I meet new people, they are surprised, since Japanese studies and economics are two entirely different majors.
We are Vietnamese. I thought we were a community, however, we aren't. I have always felt like an outsider inside the Vietnamese community in Germany, or at least in Freiburg, where I have been living until I enrolled in university.
This is going to be a longer series. I will divide it into several parts, otherwise it will get too long. However, I don't know how many parts there will be yet. It will be finished, when I feel like I have written down everything.
