When I came back from Switzerland, I was greeted by a very high pile of letters, mainly because of all the cards I had cancelled before I left.
One of the letters concerned parts of the funding for my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree: I received help from a government programme that is 50% scholarship and 50% student loan. Apparently, I am now supposed to start paying back my student loan. I feel very, very old right now. However, I am mainly feeling very privileged because I will actually be able to handle it. And that makes me feel even older.
