I have been stressing and worrying a lot lately while trying to organize everything to go to Armenia. I am unemployed and i’m living with my mom and having serious money issues, so when I realised I had to be spending A LOT of money I didn’t have only the plane ticket I started freaking out. I decided to talk about it with my mom and she told me that I was doing this because I wanted and because I wanted to enjoy it, and it shouldn’t be causing me so much stress and that the only thing that should be worrying me and making me cry right now was my thesis. And, as usual, my mom was right.
So I called the organization to see what they suggested me. They told me I could change places, find somewhere to go where I woulnd’t be spending so much money and we saw that on the same dates there were two camps on the south of Italy (to work with kids too) and one in Berlin that looks very cool. I thought about it and decided it was a much better option since I can find ticked planes for almost nothing to both those places. I have already applied for it and now I have to wait and see what they tell me.
I am very sad and disappointed, I was super excited to go to Armenia, but I think this is the best option for me. I will still be volunteering, just closer to home.
Of course I will keep this tumblr and will still explain everything as planned, I just changed the title.
Thanks again to my love Mariam, this decision broke my heart specially because of you, but I know you understand. Don’t worry though, Armenia will have to deal with me sooner or later!
