1 year

So today it has been a year, since I arrived in this country and moved in at Phibsborough. A lot has happened since then, but I feel very ambiguity about this. When you say that it has been 1 year, it does not sound right. The time frame does not meet the experience in itself. When I think about how long ago I left Denmark to live here, it feels like so much more time has passed, more like a decade. However, when I think about how far away  Denmark feels emotionally, as in being homesick and the like, it does not seem like a year at all.

I was back in Denmark in September and I have been a few times this last year, so that closes the emotional gap and technology has certainly helped. However, technology can only go so far and never closes the gap completely. Therefore, in that sense, Denmark does not feel so far away, but I do feel farther away, if that makes sense.

It has been a year of adventure and personal growth, I would say, but I am getting to a point where I need a new change and use the things I have learned here. Luckily, I will not have long to way, as I heading back to Denmark in less than 3 weeks time.
