I’m moving out of my apartment tomorrow. My bags are packed, my room is empty. I’m currently sat in bed, snuggled under the only thing in this room that is still mine: my duvet. This has been my room since September, and it feels surreal to be leaving. I’m trying to count how many rooms I’ve made my own these past few years. The current count stands at 10. I’ll be moving into my 11th in August.
My time at Fudan is coming to an end. Our exams officially end on 4 July, after which my time at university in China will be finished and I’ll be flying home to the Netherlands.
So, what’s next?
Yes, I’m going home. But I won’t be staying for long. If all goes well (and please please keep your fingers crossed for me that it does), I should be returning to Shanghai after 3 short weeks at home. To a new apartment. And a new room.
I’ll keep you updated.
