6 months since the end of my project and I’m glad i got a chance to have this experience. Not so many things happen during these 6 months.
For me, these 10 months were very useful.
The return to home was strange; I didn’t really realize I was at home forever. It’s been like a holiday for me, but after 3 weeks, I started to feel sad because of a lot thing.
I don’t know if it’s me who changed or people around me, but the things is that honestly I was not happy to come back at home because of the environment.
Of course I’m happy to have my family, my boyfriend, my friends, ….. I would if i could move them away, but i can’t. My parents and i spoke about that and they say Paris is too stressful and not for me and they support me to move. i need time for that so for the moment I try as much as possible to escape from Paris
For New Year I went to London. British people are crazy, but in a good way, always smiling. I also work a lot because I have the project to have my one business for next year. So now that the project of voluntary service is finished, I begin the project of the real life. But I don’t give up my interest for the voluntary service. I found an association which will allow me to continue what I did before.
I can say that my period in Latvia was great. To honest, sometimes it was difficult (misunderstandings, figts for what you need for projects, miss your family….) and for that, i could talk with my roomates. i remenber the evenings, i spoke with Francesco for hours talking about stupid things, complain(sometimes for things really important and sometimes just because we want to complain 🙂 ), or what we will do when we are going to return home.
I learn about what I am able to do or not; i don’t get mad like before. care less about things not so important, learn English also. i try to have fun everyday and i focus on these moments (miers un mīlestība)
MANY Thanks to all people we met during our EVS. People who helped us for our projects. Great moment in LIGZDA (not each time because when you don’t know how to use a sewing machine you don’t spend a good moment 🙂 no you cry), in ZANTE CRISIS (even with mosquitoes), with my students, my lovely mentor (Gundega) with Liene, my really big helper Laima :).
i learnt something from each of you.
