So I’ve been in Nice for about 5 days now. In this short period I have already seen and experienced so much, and met new friends along the way. Unfortunately for me I have focused this trip towards my studies, that’s not to say that I am done with exploring this beautiful city.
I have been on many adventures as you could say in last couple of years, with each one playing a major contribution in my life. It has been a complete eye opening experience that has shaped my very perception of the world around me. I feel quite grateful for the opportunities that I have been able to undertake and have learned to not take things for granted.
One thing in particular that I have been focusing on lately is really developing my learning capabilities and working hard on learning as much as I can. I really did take my education for granted when I was younger, and I feel I could be further at this point. However that’s not to say I was not enjoying what I was doing at the time. My occupation itself is highly competitive but I feel the society in which I grew up in, competitive is an understatement. The opportunity to be paid is seldom available, the opportunity to do so is underrated and the ability not to is a luxury.
I am currently studying here in Nice, and that’s what I intend to do. I could easily categorize this trip as a holiday, with the incredibly blue beaches and beautiful scenery not making it any easier. I aim to use the courses that I am enrolled in, Luxury Brand Management and Business Strategy, to help round out my degree. I’d like to think that I possess the entrepreneurial spirit, but have discovered that I have a long way to go in this regard. My efforts have now been steered towards learning the fundamentals so that I may adapt them to my current and future situations.
Nice has been nice (had to be said) and I look forward to really diving into my studies for the next three weeks, and making sure that I leave no stone unturned.
