Malaysia

Wow. My procastinating skills are well known already, but I’ve really almost forgot that I have a blog where I can write… STUFF!

Anyway, I don’t much to say. Just.. look up ^^`

You know, for freaking once I won something and it is a year to challenge myself. Back in September I decided to take part in a scolarship program for high school students. I did many tests, some interviews, and waited months and months for a response. And this bring us to February 20th, when I recieved the e-mail I was waiting. ONE YEAR ABROAD, IN MALAYSIA. WOW.

In these last few months I’ve been busy. Between school and preparation to my departure I seriously risked my sanity >w<  But anyway here I am, ready to leave in 23 days. Am I really ready? The answer is NO. Noppity no. Nope. Nein. Non. 

I mean I am extremely excited to leave and live this wonderful experience but at the same time I don’t want to go and leave all my family and friends behind. Living for this journey is also growing up and , as the eternal Peter Pan I am, it’s incredibly scary. I will stay in a local family and attend normal school so I’ll have to do my best to integrate. 

Last month there was a huge meeting for all the students who are leaving for Asia this summer. I had a lot of fun! I got the opportunity to meet some of my internet friends(we live in different cities and never had the possibility to meet), also I attended many lessons about the Malaysian culture. Frankly speaking, Malaysia is a beautiful place and I can’t wait to confirm that with my own eyes but at the same time it’s scary. Please, do not misunderstand me! A culture can never be wrong or right, just different and that’s what worries me a little bit about it. I am afraid to not be able to adapt and therefore to seem rude, not make any friend and be left alone… you know … I guess it’s normal… I hope it is ^^` 

Time is passing soooo soooo fast, and I haven’t packed yet.. I don’t really know what to bring with me… wow It has been a while since I last wrote here. Feels great doing it again though!! 

Wow, it’s 00.30 am. I better go to bed now~ 

Goodnight~~ See you soon!!
