I am now a PhD Student

Actually, I’ve forgot to announce it public (how could I?).  I have got a position as a PhD student at the IT-University of Copenhagen in the division of Innovative Communication. I’m thrilled.

Everything up to this joyful event of getting the PhD position went wrong. First, I was struggling with a tight agenda in my company Digital Storylab leaving only 8 days to write the application, even though I had planned writing it for months, almost years. Then I waited appr. 2 months. Waited and waited. For all this time I was living in a non-place where time was standing still. No past, present or future – almost no me.

A Thursday afternoon I received the invite for the interview scheduled for the upcoming Monday. I was left with 3 days to do my presentation. I want to write I did a good job in preparing myself for the interview, but that would be a lie. I was paralyzed by the possibility to make my dream come true.  So I must admit  the interview was the worst time of my life. I was unprepared, nervous and angry at myself for not having done a good job. Ohh well, it did turn out well. So here I am, sitting in my office at the IT-University, preparing the next 3 years of my life.

Time has started over again.
