So… I am currently living a new life. new friends, new types of food, new classes, new education system, new sleeping pattern, new appreciation for tea-time…
From my experience living abroad, for almost 8 years now, I believe it takes about a year, or may be even 2 years to completely integrate an individual into a new living environment
Like, you may be hanging out with people all the time. sure. But to be truly happy and to be feeling at home, that takes a lot more than a few weeks, or a few months
And I am only here in cambridge for 1 year. So i gotta speed up the process.
But I am currently in the homesick period
I miss MIT: I miss my friends, my SUPER INTENSE classes when i regularly have to pull all-nighters, my ballroom dance teammates, the occasional screaming and hugging when i see my gal pals.
I miss my parents: who cook me SUPER AWESOME FOOD and tell me that everything is going to be okay
I think we should move on to something more cheerful
LIKE MY NEW ROOM
i call this my writer’s desk. It’s such an old-school british desk. The view outside my window is pretty nice. Me likey.
Okay this is one thing I don’t get. WHYYYYYYY ISSSSSS THEEEEEE BEDDDDD SOOOO TINYYYYY? I mean english

The whole thang!!!!!
Okay, peace out y’all. I don’t have a camera now so no pretty pictures of cambridge yet. sad face. soon.soon
