So it looks that in order to see The Sun after you saw The Stars and The Moon you have to go to sleep. But now I wonder what The Judgement means..
Anyway.. what I really wonder is how my life would look like if I wouldn’t have returned from my Erasmus in February 2006, after only 5 months, and I would’ve applied to receive the grant until the end of the School year, while continuing the ticketing internship at Carlson. The only reason I see now is that my parents didn’t have more money left to invest in me at that time.. so maybe getting a paid job would’ve helped.
Now, considering that I got 700 euro as reward for those 350 hours of practice, while having free lunch every day, wouldn’t seem that impossible to survive continuing in that way without any inputs from mom and dad..
And now I wonder how my life would look like if I wouldn’t have used that opportunity at all. Which reminds me: I didn’t have enough confidence to apply for one of the positions in Germany or Austria. I was scared that I may not be able to pass the admission tests and understand the classes in german language, even if I had german from the 6th grade and all highschool with private classes… so I chose to apply for Spain, in spanish… a language I learned completely on my own, while also having fun doing it.
Also, I don’t think I would’ve done anything good in Germany because the grants there were for finances or international relations studies… and I was studying tourism at that time.
Did I ever mention that my first foreign language is French? with also having private classes at home for the first 2 years of study? 😀
Yet now I find myself living and working in the Czech Republic, in finances-accounting – royalties to be more precise, with another field added, as the cherry on top: italien – for more than 6 months now, and I came here with no knowledge of the local language..
So, for a further development I should consider finding ways to deliver the chinese language to the japanese people :D. Or the other way around. For free. I wish I would’ve realised sooner how to sell ice at the North Pole. Or sand in the desert. Would’ve saved me a lot of embarrassment.
