There are so many reasons why I haven’t had another post for a while. And I am truly sorry for that. I am not gonna tell all the specifics why, but let’s just say that there’s been personal matters, post-Erasmus depression, cultural shock etc. Many-many things which all led to not want to write another post. Now I am finally ready for it. Soon I will have a post about my whole experience being Erasmus and some other posts. But some updates I have done so far, for s month and a half.
The main thing – ESN! That has been literally saving my life right now. I would still be gone if I wouldn’t go to the meetings and try to be active again. I have a goal for the next year and right now I am just working on it. I’ve calmed down a bit, I still go the events but I also let new members to do a lot. Last year I was trying to help everywhere, this year I go for deeper help. Right now I am one of the helpers for our event manager, and also taking part of some projects. I am also organizing one big event for beginning of May, but about that you will hear more at some point.
Also as usual, getting together with friends. Obviously there’s a lot of catching up to do. Also some long-distance friends have visited Tartu lately, so I’ve been getting coffee with them. It is really good to see my old friends and spend some quality time with them.
And I’ve done some short time work, for few days. Just to get some extra money which all goes to my traveling account. Next to all that I have settled in my new apartment which I’m sharing with two foreign guys. After living with girls for half a year it took some time to get used to the calmness and having a lot of privacy. Sometimes I miss my old flatmates but same time it is good to live with guys again.
And of course, I have been to my parent’s place in Rakvere. Last time was for Easter last weekend, and it was weirdly cool to have the whole family together. But as it is total spring in Tartu then there it was still winter. Snow everywhere but at least it so warm during the day that it is finally melting.
