It has been very difficult to coordinate my ideas and finally decide what to write? Having failed to do so for nearly five months.
A few days ago while I was organizing my room, I found a small book which I used as a diary when I lived in Massachusett three years ago, did not say very nice things about the United States in the first pages (especially for someone who was there for first time) weather, language, food, sometimes people, nothing seemed to be fine for me. The last pages were more subtle and tolerant even funnier.
The last sentence of the diary said “After two or three years that I read again these pages, I’ll sure laugh a lot” and I caught myself laughing as the diary said.
Certainly our experiences make us change, I am now moving to the United States again, and I assure you that this time the weather, food, language, even people, will not be the first things that I’ll complain about United States. I always wondered how it would be USA for the second time, this time I do not worry about the language (of course I still have to improve it), I do not care the food, I won’t even feel fear of not knowing what it means to live outside my country, I do not care to be a foreigner. But I’m sure USA for the second time will be full of new experiences, knowledge, cultural shocks and a lot of fun, and this time I will not write in a notebook but on my blog.
Glad to be back.
