Melanie's graduation

In August Mel graduated, her thesis was excellent and very well formatted and laid-out. She said she'd continue studying in Amsterdam at the VU majoring in Communications. It would take her 2 years and she'd already found a place to live on the Rozengracht through her best-friend Laurien . 4 girls in a nice house, big old kitchen table and no one to cook. :) That was easily solved.

Her studies would be different from the HBO she'd just completed, though, and University life was different with plenty of room to study and no one to tell you how. She gave up after almost a year, incapable of pacing herself and either feeling lost or greatly hindered by professors and classmates.
