It finally happened! That thing I was busy with for far too long has finally come to fruition. And now I can finally use the academic title: Bachelor of Science. This has been a rocky journey from the beginning to the end, as I started it back in 2008 and went to battle with it on and of over the past years. Sometime I didn't even think I would go through with contemplating if it was really still for me. The honest answer was "no, it's not for me", because as I was growing my career as a software developer, having a degree in electrical engineering became less and less relevant.
But I still decided at one point to go through with it and finish it, just because I had completed so much already and the end was in sight. It's also not a bad thing to have the title as some kind of proof that you're not all that bad up there in your head.
So yesterday the day finally came for me to present my thesis, and everything went smoothly. How could it not go smoothly, the moment was years in the making. The research itself was very appropriate for the things I'm interested in right now. I researched a feasible model for DApp (Decentralized Application) development for IT-companies in Suriname who want to start with this practice.
Afterwards I felt a weight lift of my shoulders. Even more so this morning. All my future plans seem closer now, as if I've been mentally putting them off until I finished this one thing. Well, that one thing is done, so now onto the next bigger and better challenge
Lutan Fyah says it well: Never give up.
Not always does the path seem like what you expected to be, but as long as you can go forward and you have reason to do so, do it. And you will reach the destination.
