now I’m back at my studies at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany again. Soon I’ll be entering the second year working on my dissertation.
Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of the Germanic department in Seattle. It was a great time in which I not only had the chance to experience the characteristics of the American Ph.D. system, but also made some great new friends and got to know the city of Seattle and all the lovely places surrounding it.
I hope to keep in touch and see you all again sometime.
