11 weeks ago I left everything behind an moved to the Netherlands to study Hospitality Management in Hotelschool the Hague. Once I arrived at Skotel life grabbed me by the neck and tagged me along. I met a lot of new people, I attended lectures and before I knew it the first block was over. But let me start from the beginning...
On the 26th of August we all moved into Skotel, the day was gone before I knew it. It passed in me trying to put the countless bags with luggage on their place. The first evening I spent with my parents and after that they left back for Bulgaria.
Our second day was occupied by the school - all day they were showing us the school and for dinner we went to a beautiful restaurant.
At that time I started getting to know my housemates.
School make sure we are busy and gave us our first assignment - hotel excursion. Right after that a menu assignment and after that a POR and of course the terrifying Conference Proposal.
The classes were interesting and the more days passed the more I knew that this is the right place for me. Probably some of my favorite classes were IMP, Training management skills and the Hospitality Experience module.
From time to time I was able to take a small breath and go to the beach.
Time passed and it was time to choose which student associations to join. I joined La Confrerie - I never had the slightest doubt about it.
I even bought a dress for the first dinner. ^.^"
It feels nice to be part of something, especially when you are away from home.
And yes the next day I took a picture with me wearing the sweater.
And yes it wasn't easy but I never had a doubt that this is what I want. And the people around me made sure I enjoy this place as much as I can, I am so thankful for everyone that is by my side.
It wasn't easy and we studies hard, we often felt tired but we all managed t not give up.
We partied and went to school. At least the first 8 weeks - the school has a bar inside and La Confrerie has a bar- that makes partying and meeting people quite easy.
And then it came - the 9th and 10th weeks - EXAM TIME.
Suddenly the parties were forgotten and we all started studying.
More about the exams in the next blog.
Luckily the exmas wee soon over and everyone left, they all went back home for the 0 week. I was one of th elast people taht remained for the weekend of week 10 of block A.
