almost two months have passed

Thursday, November 10, 2016

I've almost been here for two months. Two months sounds like nothing but it is actually quite a long time. 60 days that means that I am here for 1140 (!!) hours. I catch myself thinking that I didn't do anything, "My week was not that interesting I only went to the city on Saturday." Only? Really Renee? You went only to the city? Like, the city that everyone wants to be in and you were there only on Saturday. It's so weird to catch yourself thinking that, like it's nothing. It's always been a dream to go to NYC and now I am here thinking that it's so normal. Sometimes it's so weird to realize what's really happening. It doesn't feel real, sometimes.

If I think about what I have done these two months, it's insane. I went to two Broadway shows (the Lion King and Matilda) and two concerts (Global Citizen and Tidal) with the biggest artists like Beyoncé and Rihanna. I went to a baseball game and museums. I experienced Halloween and the elections (that was crazy) like anybody else. I joined the photography club. The most important thing of them all, I met so many lovely people and  the most amazing human being in the world - my roommate Elianne. It's so special and insane at the same time that you meet a person that is so the same. I am very thankful.

After two months it feels like home, a second home with a whole new family. Friends for life, we're experiencing a journey together which I never will experience with someone back home. It's not like home at all and of course I miss my home, the only place on earth that I know with my eyes closed. And I miss my family and friends even more, one day more than an other. Especially now, it's almost my brother's birthday and he is turning sixteen. I will turn twenty-one here. Christmas is coming. With days like this I definitely miss everyone from back home but that is normal, I think.

Almost two months have passed, four to go.
I can't wait to see what they have to bring.

Love, Renee
