Surviving USA Part 1

overcast 17 °C

It all began in January 25, 2008. I have decided to quit my job, which I had been working for almost 7 years since I graduated, packed my bags and come to the US. I would say, it is a life changing experience and it has changed the way I look at this world. Some experiences are neither nice nor pleasant. But I think that's one of the most precious parts of being alive and human and it's the process of growing (emotionally and mentally). I have met some people, who make me see this world differently and those who have some impact on my life. It's my first time EVER living abroad!


Life is full of surprises and there are so many turns. There might not be a direct road for you to reach your destination. Sometimes, we need a detour and enjoy the scenery along the way. Where is my destination??? I can't seem to find the answer yet. At some point, I feel like maybe the destination is not the absolute answer, the journey to the destination matters most to me. Still, I don't know where my destination is.....

This journey began with excitement, passion and affection, which at some point they don't last as you wish. I discovered that friendship is the only thing that might be with you forever and it is one of the nicest things I have got from this journey. I also have come to realize that when crisis strikes and you have to be on your own, you will discover who you really are.

I arrived San Francisco in January 25, 2008. Everything is NEW.....I feel alienated....but excited anyway! I planned to be in the US for 6 months or so. It turned out that I get to be here until November 24, 2008.
