There are times in your life when you have to take real decisions . Not like chooses you take in a take-away restaurant. ”Should I take fried fries or just a burger and a cola?.” That time has come for me.
Before my trip to Holland which actually was the best thing I have ever done in a long long time, I was unsure and I was always saying “I will decided about where I want to study tomorrow, next week or next month maybe, I have time” I used to say. But really I don’t have any at all. Everything goes fast and with speed like life.
People say “How do you imagine your life in ten or twelve years from now?” The only answer I have is “I want to be happy”. Maybe that sounds a bit poetical or like an artistic shit, I don’t mind. And then people always say “Yes, of course you will be happy in ten – twelve years, but is that want do you really want? Come on, like living in a big house with a really nice man in your bed site or with a nice flat in a busy and expensive neighborhood somewhere like in New York or London or even in Paris as a creative person you are.” Sometimes I don’t understand why people take happiness for granted like it’s a hot pizza that always waits for you in the oven when you are in need.
All I want is to be is happy. The last day when I was in Holland a small voice in my head was keep saying that this is the place where I want to spend my college years, where I want to fall in love, where I want to be hurt, where I want to make friendships that will last forever. I know that it will be hard to succeed but nothing in life comes easy. And yes that goddamn 5 or 6 days I was there I was super happy like a 5 year old that gets here favourite present from Santa. Deep inside of me I knew that that happiness was unique. And that was the time when I had me answer.
I’m Dimitra, I want to study in TU/e, I want to be an industrial designer and I will be happy.
