Studying ex, working in

Some close friends and family saw it coming, but I finally decided to stop studying. It's not that I'm no longer interested in physics, nor that I don't want to know more about it, but I can't bring myself to studying for exams anymore. I had a good time studying at the university and I have learned a lot over the past few years and I have met a lot of interesting people in this period, but it's time to go on and get to something else.

I've been looking around for the past few days, wondering which direction to take. I'm going back to working, that's for sure, but I have nearly endless possibilities. I can go back to my previous employer or the automation industry in general, but having gained some Linux, sysadmin and web development skills during the years I've spent at the university, I might as well apply for a job in that field as well.
I could look for a job in, or near, my hometown, but nothing is restricting me to go looking further, maybe even abroad.
Right now I'm looking what's available and feasible on the job market, in Belgium and abroad. I've started applying and probably will begin doing interviews soon. And I will continue to do so until I find a job that's best for me.
I'm not really in a hurry, so I can take my time evaluating the opportunities I come by and choose the most interesting one.
