  1. I just learnt that I got accepted to university. Can’t decide whether I should be thrilled or scared.

      Computer science.

      To be honest, the thing I’m mostly worried about is money. 😕

      As a bitter old man who has done a number of degrees, let me pass on this: the piece of paper you get at the end is essentially worthless. How worthless varies somewhat depending on the field, but ultimately all it really amounts to is a tick of one box on a long list you'll be measured against when trying to get a job. My advice would be to try and get as much real world experience as you can during your undergrad so you actually have something meaningful on your CV once you get the piece of paper. The world is awash with degree graduates. Make sure you come out of your degree with something that helps you stand out from the pack.

      It’s a bit late for that, since I’m technically a bachelor already (trading that for a master’s degree). Technically. I mean, the degree I have is not exactly a bachelor’s (other than in English, anyway) but it equals (Finland’s schooling system may be a bit confusing). Not that it would have done me any good. One of the reasons for me to apply was to get something reasonable to do, since it seems to be impossible to get a job anyway (without having years of experience, which is impossible to get if you never get a job without experience in the first place. It’s crazy, but I probably don’t need to tell you that). Here’s hoping I’ll be able to build some connections at least.
