I had been waiting for a long time to finally live on my own and to be independent from parents and other adults. Nevertheless, especially in the first few days, it wasn’t easy for me to have so many responsibilities at once. Cooking, cleaning the apartment, washing clothes, studying and apart from that having a social life… It all seemed confusing at the beginning and too much for the time I had! Then it happens that some pipe breaks in the bathroom or that there’s a power outage… However, over time you get used to solving all these problems on your own and to dividing the time in such a way that you can also enjoy your student life.
You will feel homesick from time to time without a doubt because no one can replace friends from your hometown or school, your family is far away and you miss them all. The truth is, moving to another country to study brings everyone outside of their own comfort zone. Nevertheless, it is an important step towards an independent, interesting life full of experiences and adventure.
