Long Night of the Museums

Who ever hears Picasso, Monet, Warhol, Klimt, Manet, Cezanne, Giacometti and Michelangelo in the same sentence thinks about a looot of paintings hanging around with a lot of people trying to notice what they are actually meant to say.On saturday, I got the chance to be one of those people @ “ORF Lange Nacht der Museen” (ORF Long Night of the Museums), where one could pay a single ticket and be directed to all the museums in Austria. For me, two museums (and 5 exhibitions) in Vienna were more than enough, but I enjoyed a pleasant evening in the company of my friend from Jura, Teo, and the works of all these artists I previously spoke about.

Walking through the Museumsquartier, it came to me that I am living in a city of music and arts and I should take advantage of all these events in order to explore the other part of me that I’ve been hiding for so long: karaoke contests, here I come! :) Today (n.n. on Monday) I also realized that nothing’s going to be easy in the next couple of months, but it’s up to me to get the highest profit with the lowest amount of work.

I’m excited! I really am. And by tomorrow, I’ll know what a “Blockveranstaltung” (big big big course – this one will last 10 hours!) truly means. Until then!

Willkommen in Wien

We wish you a pleasant stay and a lot of new opportunities :)

Upon my arrival in Vienna, I’ve managed to get my stuff (my many, many, many stuff) in their right place, to order a Master Card (Bankomatkarte), receive a health insurance and a paper that states that I’m living in the city for the next couple of…years and briefly discover the benefits of being a student at the WU.

It all started out on thursday, when the new students @WU had their “Welcome Day”, which included presentations of our fields of study, of the scolarships we are able to obtain and, most importantly (to me), of the reknown “Auslandsemester” (exchange semester) that we have to complete in order to finish the Bachelor of Science (in the field International Business Administration, which is what I am aiming for). Although there were a lot, and I mean A LOT of new students, it seemed as if every speech was designed to discover what you want for yourself in the future.

The thing that I realized about WU is that nobody is pushing you to complete your studies in time. You are the one who chooses when you want to take your classes, if you want to learn for your exams, if you want to take your exams. Yet, you are the one who has to find out a way to push yourself to the limits. Face your fears, go that extra mile that takes you from being a “Matrikelnummer” to a full time commited person.

xPRimenting Vienna as a student may be a big risk, but it’s a risk I was always eager to take. So hop on board and join the WU-bim (tram) to victory!

I’ll be back right after the Long Night of the Museums ;)
