BTW: I bewareee, it's a BIG LECTURE TO READ!
I typed this out of boredooomm... feel free to to talk with me <3
Today I was invited to exclusive American School of Warsaw ([link]
. Its a real american school with small village with pretty houses- and here the law, education system is American, not Polish and you speak here only in english. Thats like a small part of america in Warsaw XD.
Here was a huge picnic party, some american BBQ party which i have no idea. I hanged with some kids XD. I sat down and suddenly I started having "flashbacks" and thinking about my trip to america which happen week ago...
This my crazy unexpected decision going all alone to USA and whole trip was the best thing which I did in this year. I learned so much here. And it changed my life. America is my
country and homeland, not Europe. Just I was thinking myself "OH hai im stupid european kid
Yes. I've born in USA, and I lived for four years and then we ran to Europe... but originally, we were supposed to live in USA, as my destiny has been written. But my parents decided move to Europe...
I used to travel much but usually with my family or friends. Since I moved from USA to europe, I lived in Finland, later in Spain and at the end I stopped in Poland because of that my mother is Polish. Probably I visited whole europe. I remember always when i was getting back to home (to Poland), i was all YEEE, its always the best to be in my own coutry! I was happy and always excited. But this time, while getting back to Poland from USA i was totally
unhappy. Now, still I am not happy begin here.
Going to america all alone, without using travel-tourist offers or whatever is called, without knowing english, to different world and especially living with a person whom i met on INTERNET XD. Isn't that creepy?
Well, that was a real taste of adventure begin on different land. Because if you go with brouchure tour/with guider or just with family- it has no real taste. No stress, because your family/guider/responsible people will take care with you. That was a waste of journey, believe me, I barely remember my travels to different countries with family. Suprisingly, I was in america only four years ago with my family for a MONTH- this my 10th touched me MUCH stronger, taught me MUCH more than the month one.
I was around with only real americans and no my native language speaking. I never had real practice with english, and absolutely I didt understand what they were talking to me. School never taught me english speaking well, even such short trip helped me more than several weeks of stupid english lessons maybe im just having dislexia and i work a lot better on practice >.>
Whole trip was hard and stressful for me, but on other hand was really fun, adventurous and gained new experiences. I love challenges. I was all NUUU i want go back to homeeee, but in fact i didnt want go back to home.
Even now, im sitting at my room, without worry and stress, lying on my own comfy bed- i feel LESS happier and all ":/" than begin stressed on the trip.
You know, experiencing events without stress and emotions- you wont remember them well. Wont learn much from it. But experiences with big amount of stress will make you remember trip better ^^. ESPECIALLY, i remember the best part when suddenly i HAD to take a bus with creepy americans (my friend HAD to come and drop me from NYC, which was way comfy and safer than in foregin bus but she couldnt) to Syracuse for FIVE hours in stortm and it CHANGED schedule and i thought all time that bus was going to Toronto, not my destination.. plus my phone roaming died that i couldnt contact with anyone.. freekish stress.
ANYWAY. I wont bore you with details of trip moar if some ppl interested, I can make a journal of my whole this trip, including devmeets and funny events XD
That trip was sort of a test of my maturity. Also i came to visit my country which i born and as well to learn real english. Yes, all "exams" were passed, i came back to home alive, and yes I improved a little
with english and.... I want to live in America.
I say, Europe and America are different worlds. Not only about lifestyle, law, stuff, schlock, landscapes, culture but people as well. They totally inspired me a lot... well next time i shall write journal about people. Its always super interesting to meet ppl from different countries. Now when Im back, Im moar americanized kid
Ok, I will stop babbling now. Just i want to let you know... spending on travellings, is the best
invest in yourself. You'll learn about life, the language, meet the world and explore new horizonsnoegyptvacations plz... do hardcore and survival trips XD
. There are many stuffs with travels, which the best school wont teach you...
Since I am in fact american kid, and *actually* I realized that I am illegal begin in Poland because I have no paperworks of legality begin in poland. DUDE, so many problems i had with travel stuff! They didnt want to let me to Poland because I have no polish visa since I was on american passport.
, who for many years was behaved in Europe, filled with european culture and shits, calling myself as proud european kid... I JUST planned that in future, once i finish university I am moving to America.
To my homeland.
But of course before this huge move, I definately plan to come back to america again in next year and try to visit as often as I can to reveal my true american spirit
... after that BBQ party ended at American School my shirt was all splatted with ketchup XD. Andd.. some kids did NASTY prank with my phone :/. Im totally unhappy and mad of prank, I may write about it later- but what i learned, NEVER leave phone alone anywhere. GO everywhere with your foooonee..
