Oh this crazy Portugal

So in my last post I said that I decided to stay in Portugal for sure. Well, I changed my mind again. I had this crysis again and there are so many things that bother me just simply too much and I kind of can’t take it anymore. I decided to go home and not to stay here for the second semester. I mean, I love the nature, I love to travel around, I love to meet new people and so on, but that’s not enough.
I came here to make some progress, to learn new things, I really wanted to work… Well I did take a lot of photos and I just love some of them, but when it comes to progress at school I just don’t think I made any. For my opinion the classes I had were just too easy and the professors just didn’t pay any attention to Erasmus students. I mean, they did, but not enough. Most of the time we were just sitting there doing nothing, then we got about 10 minutes of attention. It would be so much easier if we would talk to the professors at the begining of class and then we could go home or something. Just being there for so much time for nothing is really throwing away time.
But it’s not just at school. Everywhere you go, you always have to wait and wait and wait, everything is in slow motion. It just drives me crazy sometimes. =) I’m not used to it. Oh and the weather! Lately it’s really crazy, windy, cloudy, rainy, sunny… Everything at the same time! We had some extreme wind last weekend and there was a red alert over the country. There was a lot of damage and many trees fell down… So weather isn’t helping with good mood very much… =)
I’m going home in February and now I really can’t wait. Overall this was an amazing experience, I loved it, I’m glad that I went. But now it’s just enough for me. =) This is just not the lifestyle that would suit me. =) I’ll write more about it in my next blog post, but for now you can read more about it on my blog.
