I’ve made it to Krakow, Poland. The journey was long and arduous, but I finally feel like I’m ready. Leaving my family at the airport was hard, because once I crossed over customs, I realized that I was completely alone. The one fear I know I have is the fear of being alone. I guess the realization itself wasn’t scary, but it was depressing.
I spent the last week with my grandparents in Wroclaw. It was a nice week of doing absolutely nothing but reuniting myself with family members, some of which I haven’t seen in the last 20 years. When I was dropped off earlier today, that lonely feeling wasn’t so bad. I think it just took some time getting used to it. I’m actually going to miss my grandparents, but it’s now time for me to grow up.
With that, I present my new room:
It’s nothing big and fancy and glamorous, but it’ll suffice for now. I was initially supposed to have a one-bed room, but everyone informed me that it was
small TINY and without a closet. I didn’t mind it, but I guess you can say I was talked into taking the two-bed room, considering that I’ll have no roommate. It cost a bit more, but at least I’ll have a closet and some more space.
In other news, I broke my iPhone. Well, not the phone itself, but the tiny sliding device that holds your SIM card. I put a new SIM card in and I believe that it fell out, because the device can’t be opened with a paperclip or anything else. However, I dropped it off to get fixed today and the guy at the phone store told me that the device that pops the slider open may be broken. It makes sense. I left it with him and hopefully I get to pick up a functioning iPhone tomorrow morning, along with a new local number as well.
And I guess that’s it for now. I’m going to attempt to look for some classmates, make myself something to eat, and lounge around. If you’re interested in my journey over the last couple of days, my LiveJournal has that
PS – local time is 4pm, not 10am. I should change that.
