FOOTNOTES. H e l l o month of festivities!! Just a few of my favourite shots taken over the period which i didn’t get a chance to post. The semester and year is coming to an end, and i think it’s been such a great year of lessons and growth. With that, i have a lot to look forward to as well.
Somehow I feel like this is a relatively significant period in my life where I’m learning a lot. Not in the school semester modules aspect (yes I did learn), but more on the aspect of self discovery and experiencing the “significance” of my being in general. I question a lot of things more now-much more than I already did in the past. I’m not going into some philosophical phase but just somehow, I feel different.
I think a big reason behind it is the fact that I’m heading for exchange this upcoming semester, and I’m going to have to be much more independent in the sense cause i only have me myself and I to handle everything. Being at home gives me a huge sense of security, so handling daily issues isn’t much of a problem because the “base” of security is already there-like I know I have a doctor to see if I’m sick, the environment is safe, I have a home which is safe, I don’t have to worry about not understanding people. While in a completely foreign land all these become rather ambiguous.
Am I scared? Yes. To say I’m 100% confident that I will be fine is a blatant lie to myself. I’m bound to have moments where I’ll miss my family and friends at home. But am I excited? Yes. Because I know this is going to be a great opportunity to live, really live, and experience everything. To have fun is one thing, to experience is another, and I plan to experience everything as much as I can.
I should be documenting a lot while I’m there, and I hope I will be able to update this space more often. With that, any recommendations for Madrid?
Christmas is just around the corner(!!), another thing I’m looking forward to. I’ll be having a few gatherings in the upcoming weeks, which is e x c I t I n g. Sorry for the lengthy post, till the next!!
