So here I am, 10 days before my flight. I should be excited, but I’m mostly terrified. About packing, about leaving, about German and Germany, quite about everything.
I’ve tried to avoid speaking German as much as I could at Uni here, and every time I really had to do it, it was like the world would come tumbling down. Silly, I know that now, but there’s not much I can do.
Another thing that’s quite annoying is trying to pack 30kg of luggage for 4 months. This is particularly hard if you, like me, are planning to take with you your favorite pillow, your favorite fleece blanket, your awesome espresso jar, your very useful electric grill, and not to mention tons of toiletries. It’s gonna be emotional giving up all those.
But looking at the bright side, apparently it’s sunnier in Dortmund, so…buh bye, Leeds late winter.
