I really haven’t taken any time for blogging lately, and quite frankly I miss it. I really enjoy writing and sharing things with you, so I felt like something was missing this past month. I moved to Bologna in Italy for my Erasmus, so big changes have been going on and I’ve had to accommodate.
Bologna is such an extraordinary city; it’s extremely beautiful, the weather is amazing and the people are wonderful. I am really happy that I chose this city, I feel like I belong here and it truly suits me.
For the first couple of weeks I found it difficult to make friends; I felt so detached from everyone, I couldn’t seem to meet people similar to me, or with whom I clicked. Anxiety made me feel quite overwhelmed on several occasions but I’ve managed to power through and eventually meet a lovely group of international people. That’s what I love the most about the Erasmus experience: we come from different countries, but we’re all together in this same city for similar purposes.
