Studying

This year I started my MSc in Culture and Organization Management and am currently preparing for my exams.
I love studying, but not really the examination part of it. I love writing, but I feel I am not so good in studying for exams. In high school I used to be a bit afraid of failure, to fail an exam and thinking I didn’t know well enough. But I love an intellectual challenge, reading, writing, philosophy. Not for the sole reason that I feel superblessed that my brain able to do it and is not affected by SWS. As Sturge-Weber syndrom is a vascular malformation, it affects the brain in many cases, resulting in epileptic seizures. Many kids that are born with Sturge-Weber Syndrome will experience an epileptic seizure within their first year. This is shocking, and has an enormous impact on the development of the intellectual capacity of the kid. With heavy successive seizures at early age, a kid will sometimes not be able to reach an intellectual level of an adult. It is rare to have a big symmetrical port wine stain as I do, but not the epilepsia. My stain is wide-spread, but apparently doesn’t go as deep into the vascular system, which makes sure it doesn’t reach the brain. I am aware of how incredibly lucky with that I am and I know that I am one of the few with SWS being able to (hopefully!) complete a university degree. Never taking the opportunity to study for granted. ??
