Since my last post restrictions have started to come into full effect here, a 5pm curfew is now in place so everywhere closes at that time. My life now has pretty much consisted of going back and forth between college and home, being unable to do a whole lot else.
This has been very disheartening as obviously I’m not getting the full experience I should be but there’s not much that I can do to change that at this point.
College has been ok, with the majority of work being group presentations the workload is relatively light and I’ve found it quite enjoyable to be diving deeper into the more theoretical and marketing side of our course
I’ve found that I’ve been really been missing home at this point, while there’s been many things over here that have been great, I’m missing the simple things from home like a chicken fillet roll.
The past 4 months have been the longest I’ve ever been away from home and its been life changing. I feel that I have grown so much as a person, I’m much more independent than I was before, with this being the first time I’ve ever really lived away I had to learn how manage money a lot better than I had been and dealing with all the issues that came up during my stay was challenging but having dealt with them I feel much more well-rounded.
I’m currently writing this as I’m packing my suitcase to go home for Christmas, while I loved my time here I cannot wait to get home and see everyone, Ill be returning here in January for exam week so this isn’t a true goodbye just yet but with the majority of my time here being done its hard to leave and not feel emotional, I will definitely be returning here in the future.
