There’s a quote that says:
“You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.”
I did that, I did dare to dream really big and now it becomes more and more realistic every day. Today I got my official Letter of Acceptance via post as well. It was a mixed, strange feeling to hold this cute striped envelope in my hands. I’ve seen the letter in e-mail and had already forwarded it to the Taipei Representative Office, but still… It’s just another proof for me, that it is going to happen and that it’s not a thing in the far future anymore. It’s real, I’ve only got 3 more months left at home – and it makes me scared.
One part of me is freakingly excited though. I am sure, that it’s gonna be the greatest adventure of my life so far. I was looking for information and photos, or basically anything about Taipei, and I found a Tumblr blog full of pictures – I was completely amazed. I could have been looking through them for hours, I was just sitting there and all I could say was: wow. And all of a sudden I realized that I started planning my life there, like what it’s going to be to eat at those places, to have the first look of Taipei 101 at sunset… This city looks like it’s full of misteries and it’s waiting for me to explore: ) I guess nine months should be enough for that.
My parents and my cousin told me that they wonder if I’ll even want to come home… But even though I guess I might get to love Taipei a lot, but I just can’t imagine not coming home. This is such a different culture, a different atmosphere… I think I couldn’t live there for such a long time.. And they forget, that I have someone special to come home to… At least I hope so:)
