It’s been already three months since my arrival to Estonia. Don’t know how many of you are still following this blog, but I’ve felt already for some time that I need a closure for this chapter of my life.
You never know what you’ve got till it’s gone. I’ve felt it thousands of times but I never learn. I miss Armenia so much. I could talk for days what’s so good about this country and culture.
It took me a lot of time to get adjusted to Estonian culture again, even more than it took to get used to Armenia. But that’s exactly what I was told. That it’s harder when you come back.
Things have slowly gone back to normal. I now have a summer job and got accepted to university in Tartu. I really do hope that the exciting life of a student will take my thoughts away from Armenia. Still I feel that I need to go back to Caucasia and the Balkans soon. Not for good, I am pretty sure that I’m more of a Northern country material, but something about Armenia, Georgia and Macedonia really got to me.
I never got my brochure published and I haven’t had my photo exhibition yet, but I’m still planning to prepare the exhibition for autumn. So, anyone who is interested, contact me about the dates later on. I will definitely try to post about it here too.
All in all, I think this year wasn’t a waste. It was mostly fun, a bit productive and of course, there were some tears, but what else teaches you better. I grew as a person, just as I hoped I would, and got to know so many different cultures, helping to break the stereotypes for me, which are unfortunately inevitable. I got so many good friends, so many useful contacts for the future and so much experience about dealing with people. I’m still finding it hard to let go of some things but this all will make me stronger as well as the things that I really didn’t like about that country.
I wanted to say to all of my friends I got to know in Armenia, I miss you so much. And you are always welcome here in Estonia!
