Viyasan: What about yourself? What are some ofyour interests? Are you scared about anything whenyou graduate?
Gyri: Well, I haven't really been ... I'm trying not tothink about now 'cause I still have so many yearsleft. The degree that I'm taking, socialanthropology, isn't really a degree that you get workfrom. Especially, only with a bachelor's degree. I'm gonna have to take more years of otherstuff. I'm thinking of taking English literature and then, eventually becoming a teacher, teaching in high school. But there's a long way to go, so I'll probably not be done until I'm like28, 29 and I'm 23 right now. I'm not really worrying about jobs yet.
Viyasan: Got it. Got it. Well, that's a big relief. I know that when a lot of university studentsgraduate, they go job hunting, or even in their third or fourth year. It's good to know that youstill have lots of time before you go job hunting. You're in the clear for now.
Gyri: Yeah, for now.
Gyri: I'll save the stressing for later.
Viyasan: Exactly, exactly. Gyri, so how 'bout in the past? Have you ever overcome a fear?
Gyri: Yeah and it's similar to what you were talking about. After high school, I went toBarcelona to study graphic design and I was supposed to be there for four years, but it wasvery scary and I was only 19 years old living in a foreign country. The university wasn't reallygood. They promised us an English class, but they didn't speak English so we were the only fourpeople in the English class and they were only speaking Spanish to us. We couldn'tunderstand anything, so it was a very stressful situation; being in a new country, notspeaking the language, and the university not being very supportive. That was very stressful, but it was a very good experience and I learned a lot from it, but I ended up going back toNorway and going to university there instead. Yeah.
Viyasan: And how'd you like the change? When you went back to Norway, did you find things alot more easier for you to grasp? How were the courses at university in Norway?
Gyri: Yeah, it was much more easier. It wasn't stressful at all really. Yeah, so it kind of mademe more accustomed to university life, I guess.
Viyasan: Got it.
Viyasan: That's very cool.
