Changing the plan
How my plan of staying here for the whole year has changed.
My Plan for this year was to not go back home to Germany at all, to not go home for the whole EVS. It was a challenge I set myself, because I really wanted to feel the experience of being abroad for a long time.
Well, that plan has changed – for the worst possible reason. Something has happened in my family that just requires me to be with them, mentally and physically.
I really do feel at home here in Norway. When I’m leaving from work I am going ‘home‘. But now I am returning to my home in Germany.
I dont feel bad about changing my plan, dont feel like Im failing the challenge – not under the circumstances. Right now I am just counting the hours to fly back home, but it feels like time has been slowed down and is moving in slow motion. I can’t wait to see my family again, especially now. Being with my friends and family for some time will hopefully feel soothing and give me new strength, which is something I really need right now.
However I am also scared that I will not feel as at home returning to Norway, as when I left it. I hope it won't be too hard to be back here, but I will probably miss everyone a lot. I also hope I dont get homesick again, because of my trip. This I can’t know at the moment, but it is a new challenge created by the situation - and I am willing to take it on.
