“No matter what, first what you will notice is color of the skin and how other person look like”
Couple of months ago, I have received wonderful news, I have got a scholarship for spring exchange semester in Prague. In that moment, when I was actually filling in my application, I didn’t realise that I can for real receive one. Impulsive decision which will affect all my life, something that will probably turn up side down everything and open many unfair and unreasonable closed doors of my personality.
At the moment, I am coming back from classes, finished with faculty duties for today. I am on my way to dorm, my new home for next couple of months and room, hmmm, very international one.
Just imagine Russia, China, India and Serbia in same place, same room, same everything. We live in this planet with closed eyes constantly believing that we are most important and that out culture, habits and way of looking at life is the only one.
First, look at the sky sometimes when there are no clouds.
Second, go on exchange.
In both ways, you will feel the same, strange feeling, unknown to you . How small and insignificant we are as a individuals and how the borders can be sometimes more then just lines on the paper.
To explain more, to be born, to live, and to die in one country is the most stupid way of spending your precious life. And in the same time, if you do that, I don’t blame you, I blame borders, Visas, procedures…would you travel more If there were no borders and if you have time? Yea, of course you would. And if something is for sure, you have time, that’s all what we have in fact. Conclusion, find a way to skip over the problem named “borders”, and travel as much as you can. And this, last, is just for students, again, don’t miss a chance which name is “Exchange”.
I am here only for two, almost three weeks now. And for that period I have learned more about other cultures then from 22 years of my life. Even more, I have started to learn 2 new language, started to learn about Web developing even if I am economist, started with training again, did a laundry and ironing (you have to even if you dont want to), met a lot’s of new young people, who was hungry for life, for adventures, for exploring and wining! And we are still at the beginning! New, strange, positiv energy … We are all growing up!
Skip conventional and star to think unconventional. Stay tuned, there will be more in coming days.
