Whew… it has been a week that I’m here in Netherlands.
Thank God so far i have never experienced any homesickness, nightmares, insomnia or any kind of complicated feelings… I’m not that excited or happy for the reason of being here, but I’m not sad either.
People say that we are still in the honeymoon phase. That’s one of the stages that people go through in dealing with the culture shock. In this phase, the expat is still happy, feeling like a tourist and not homesick yet. I don’t know why people kept saying, “you are not homesick yet.” Like guaranteeing that one day I definitely will be homesick. Really?
Huh, I don’t care. The bottom line is right now I am okay. And I always will be.
