I was on my way to head to a talk at the British School at Rome. With the event being held just after working hours, I had to go there by myself as Cart was not able to send me.
I did a search online for the directions and was on my way to the place, pretty much drama free.
Even when I did get confused, I didn’t panic like how I used to last year. Last year I’ve always had irrational fears mostly stemming from me looking very un-Italian. This time round, I felt more confident in myself.
And then it dawned to me.
I don’t feel so helpless anymore and that I’m actually really getting used to life here as compared to feeling the extreme homesickness when I first arrived here. So much has happened since then.
And I feel very hopeful about the future.
