A sudden change
Although I left my home in the Netherlands already three weeks ago, the last day as a non-Centre student is not a normal one. There’s a mixed feeling about the whole process of becoming a student; am I scared, excited, nervous, or calm? You tell me, I don’t know it. Probably all of them.
and I’ve got to be honest about it, this “day before Centre” is not as
emotional as “the morning before America.” That morning I had a hard time when
I suddenly realized that within a couple weeks I wouldn’t be a child anymore. I'd
be a real grown-up who has to take care of himself. No more mom's food (or dad's,
it depends on what kind of food), no more washed clothes, and no more cleaned
room. I have to do all of that on my own from now on.
