Having spent the last 2 weeks of Christmas break in NYC, it reminded me of how much I missed the city life. I was born and raised in a cosmopolitan country and I loved every moment of it. I love to see the lights of extremely tall buildings, the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the people but maybe not the traffic.
Coming back to school was indeed a struggle; this first week of school seemed to pass by exceptionally slow and I found myself missing something. As I went about my classes and work, I realized that I missed the city. It wasn’t something I used to miss (I still love the peace and serenity Utah brings), but now it was something I yearned. It made me wonder about where I wanted to live when I graduate. I used to be rather nonchalant about the question: “Where do you want to work after you graduate?”. However, this week when a couple of people asked me that, I had to stop to think.
I guess maybe now I have to take the question more seriously and actually sit down and think about my future.
