Goodbye east coast, hello west coast!

Exactly four months ago I left the Netherlands for the east coast. I didn’t know what to expect but it has exceeded all my expectations, and more. Now, I’m sitting in my dormitory lobby, killing time before – once again – going on a new adventure: California.

This spring semester was better, cooler, crazier and much more than anything else I’ve ever done in the 21 years on this globe. Reality hasn’t hit me yet, I’m still chilling at the university like every other day, but it’s really over. The last words of this chapter have been written. 

In two hours I’m leaving Fairleigh Dickinson University once and for all, and I’m really sad to be leaving but also this amazing chapter has to end. I’m flying from JFK to LAX at 4 pm so in less than 9 hours I’m in the Golden State. Woohoo!!

Sun, sea and beach, here I come!

Heading towards the end

Only five more weeks left in New Jersey before I fly out to Los Angeles for three, hopefully wonderful weeks in California.

This semester has gone by so quickly. I met wonderful people whom I’ll definitely miss dearly, went tons of times to one of the greatest Metropolitan cities in the world and of course, studied a little.

Fairleigh Dickinson University feels like my home now, and I’m by no meaning ready to leave this place. The last 11 weeks have been marvelous and needless to say, I would love to stay here another semester, was it not that I’ve almost finished my studies in the Netherlands. The only things left to do are doing four exams, find an internship for at least ten weeks and write my final thesis.

These following five weeks will be hectic as opposed to the previous weeks. Six projects due for my Advertising Design class (love this class so much even though I didn’t like it too much in the beginning), plenty of papers due for several classes but thank God for my Wine Wednesdays where I get to learn about wine, smell, taste and review it, and all of that in class (for 3 credits, ha!).

The weather is nice outside, so I’m off to sit on the grass with my amazing friend Ruby and watch the last home match of our tennis team. Enjoy your day beautiful people!
