Hello there and welcome to the last TC2004 post at my blog. It’s been a great experience for me, and I hope, I have provided knowledge and also a little bit of entertainment. This will be my last reflection on this blog. The Germans have a very poetic saying:
Everything has an (one) end, only the sausage has two.– Poetic German saying
Therefore, I have a special song for you. It’s one of my all-time favourites. I don’t speak Greek but you can look up the lyrics. But enjoy the song.
What does one write in such a final résumé? Actually, I should write about the course TC2004, but this post is not only my last assignment to the Tec, but also my last week in Guadalajara. And since this is my blog… you know already.
Can’t we get this thing rolling? The Tec has wonderful advantages as a university but also disadvantages, whereby I can already say (attention spoiler!) that the Tec was super! Many things at the Tec are not so well organized and planned, many courses have projects and homework that don’t make much sense. However, compared to the German university, you can collect points already during the semester and thus relieve yourself of the enormous stress before the final exams. But you have the whole semester for that, a bit stressful time. The Tec does its best to make the student’s time a pleasant one. The sports and social activities are varied, as well as the food on offer. I have never felt so comfortable at my university. I can easily spend a whole day at Tec and learn, do sports, eat and meet friends all the time. It has been a great time. My favourite courses at Tec were TC2004 and Supply Chain Management. It was here that I learned the most. Both about the subject matter, the connections to real implementations and also topics that were not directly related to the subjects. That’s why I can do it at the Tec in Guadalajara for anyone who wants to do a semester abroad.
Not only because of the Tec, but because of Guadalajara and Mexico in general. As already mentioned, Mexico is a beautiful country with a delightful culture and gorgeous places. I have seen a lot and I will see more in Yucatan and Quintana Roo, I can only quote one of the most important men of the 20th and 21st centuries.
I’ll be back.

Yes, I would like to come back one day, maybe during my master’s degree or for vacations. I have not seen everything yet, still a lot to explore left.
I had a great time at Tec and in Mexico, thanks to Tec, all Tec members and all new friends I met!
Like in the German saying, we need two endings! Therefore, a final song for you guys! For a happy farewell!
