A little backstory:
Since I was 12, I wanted to study in Germany (My mom can confirm that)
When I was about to finish my bachelor’s degree, the first thing I did was research for scholarships that would allow me to pursue a master’s degree, in Germany, of course!!!
Just one month after I received my bachelor’s diploma, I filled a lot of applications and in December 2012, the news that I had been granted a scholarship for a master’s degree in Logistics came!. I arrived in Germany in May 2013 and completed the master in May 2015. I am quite sure these two years are the best out of the 28 that I’ve been on this planet.
You might wonder, where is she going with this?
Well, now that I have spent a month in Germany, I have realized that even though I spent two of the best years of my life here, I am a newbie in this country all over again.
It’s not the same thing to be a student with a scholarship, than being a grown-up starting a new life in a new country. I guess that’s the reason why at the beginning of this year part of me was freaking out.
New city + new language + new culture…yes, that’s a tough one.
Tough or not, I have to say that I am enjoying the ride. Germany is a great place to live and I am sure that the decision to come back to Hamburg was a good one.
I am also sure it won’t be easy, but I’ll give my best to always see the good side of EVERYTHING in this new experience.
So to wrap it up, in one month:
- I managed to meet new people;
- We began to make our home feel cozier;
- I went back to studying German today; and
- I began my job hunt & have not been rejected 🙂
Wish me luck in this New Beginning!!!
