So, I got the apartment! Next step is to pay the rest of the deposit and my move-in date will be after September 15th or so. I’m confident in the fact that I want to be in the city badly, but I’m just a little nervous about my family and their reaction. I just need to prove to them that this isn’t the worst decision of my life and that I can actually sustain myself in the city. It’s funny how my parents had complete polar opposite reactions to the news. My mom goes “This is going to be a very big mistake of your life,” aka I’m going to hell. My dad goes “Ok, so I found this great bed on sale at Ikea. I’ll take you to Ikea later this month,” aka I’m going to Swedish Meatball heaven. Oh, the choices I have in life!
Well, here’s to crossing that ocean (but I’ll still keep sight of the shore on the weekends…and for laundry…and free Bengali dinners…and okay the occasional bonding time with the rents). 🙂
