,,, I am having a lazy summer preparing for going back to University. Good News > The admission board has qualified me for a semester course in Human Physiology (Medicine) at Karoinska Institute as well as Graduate studies in Artificial Intelligence at Stockholm University. Still, I have to compete with others to get in.
