I have not wrote in a long time... I feel like I am always so busy and if not I’m sleeping haha I'm really not complaining. I have been in Madrid for over a month now and I am falling more in love with this place everyday. The city is great and the people even more so. I am absolutely bewildered by all the differences but I am in awe with it.
When I first moved here I had a really hard time atfirst adjusting to school and getting used to the new culture. Now though I feel great and that I am really immersed into Spain and my new life. My family is so great here and I honestly couldn't be more lucky. They are so kind to me and treat me as part of the family and that is all I could ask for. People are right though when you go on exchange everything you know is put to the test from the friends you choose to the morals you have grown up with your entire life. I have questioned everything about myself and for the most part it is the most liberating part of my exchange.
I can see myself growing as a person everyday. In America I felt dependent but here even more so. I also see that I am becoming even more accepting then I already was. I have always been open minded but living in a place completely foreign has made it easier for me to realize you can't change everything and sometimes you just have to move on and accept ithow it is. I now find the unknown exciting instead of scary.
Even though I am very busy with managing school,social life, and new a culture. I have had so much fun the last month. Getting to know locals, making so many new friends, and making a new life for myself here has been to say the least a roller coaster but I am thrilled to be along for the ride. This year will be full of ups and downs but I wouldn’t change a thing.
Hope you enjoyed reading, soon I will be making post about differences of school, social life, and other interesting things!
Hasta Luego (:
