Today marks the end of an era for me. Today is officially the last day of Finals Week, and tomorrow will be graduation. It seems impossible that four years of my life just went by yet, I feel like it’s been forever.
I came to the States in August 2015 to study Business Administration in a university in Connecticut. It has always been my dream to move to the States and become a business woman. I always dreamed about New York City, its sparkle, its beautiful architecture. Being in Connecticut helped my addiction to the City, but also helped me to re-size my view and understand that lifestyle might not perfectly fit my desire of owning many, many dogs. Now New York City became more of a place I would like to visit occasionally.
These four years meant a lot to me. Not only did I meet my significant other, but I also learned many different things that I would have never even thought of learning – ocean conservation for example. I also met many different people that shaped my life and that made this experience way better.
On the other hand, there are many things I will not miss:
1. The excessive amounts of snow and ice are on top of my list. Don’t get me wrong, I love snow. I just don’t enjoy having to sweep and scrape snow off my car in the morning. Especially if I have inches of snow that hide inches of ice.
2. The potholes on the road. Some of them are so big that could be used as pools.
3. The cold winters and the crazy weather that does not let you put away your winter clothes till June.
Now a new adventure begins. On Sunday, I will make the drive from Connecticut to Virginia, and I will finally be reunited with my family! I am beyond excited to start this new chapter of my life, to get to know better this new state and enjoy the beautiful beaches!
