This time, I would put more words on people here, in Maastricht 😀
One thing left a deep impression on me is the nice people here. When I feel lonely or homesick, there are always friends who can accompany with me and give me strength. Let’s start from the study group teammate.
She is a girl from Austria called Anna.We are in the same group to have discussion and do the presentation. When i feel confused about the problems, she always helps me to deal with them. Before I started my first presentation, I felt a little nervous and she encouraged me a lot to relax myself. With her encouragement, I did well in my first presentation:P Also sometimes, when I can not express myself well in English, she often helps me to explain it to others.
The second people I want to talk about here is also a girl from Latvia called Elina. She always invites me to take part some activities that make my life here colorful. Once she took me to the fort to feel the real nature and the beautiful view. I felt comfortable and relax when walking in the forest and breathing the fresh air. After that, we had dinner together in a Turkish restaurant. And I had a jazz concert to watch that night but I did not know how to get that place. She led me to there although it is far from where she lived.
The third people here is an old lady. It was a rainy day and I was on my way to have a party. Unfortunately, I got lost. She led me to the right way although she had something to do that time. May it is just a simple thing, but for me, I am really moved by her kindness.
About study here, I felt better about the PBL sessions.
Although there are always a lot of papers to read before the class and most of time, you have to learn yourself. You can learn things better and remember the knowledge well. You can explore the subjects yourself and that is always make you to discover questions and try to solve them. For me, I have a course called produce and production management.
Since my major is economics, so there seems a bit hard for me to remember the completely new term about operation management. But once you learn it yourself and study hard on it, nothing can stop you from learning new skills and fulfill yourself.
Besides study, I also traveled with my friends this month such as Luxemberg, Rottemdam and so on. And this weekend I went to play pool with my another three friends from Portland, Belgium and Turkey. Since we were all green birds on pool, we decided to have teamwork. I played with my Turkish friend and the best part was we won the game 🙂
Here I want to say THANK YOU to my friends! Because of yours help, I feel that Maastricht is like my second family. especially every time I travel from the other places.
You never know what is it if you do not live it. I like to accept new things and experience different culture. Sometimes, It may be difficult to deal with completely new things and you may feel upset about the failure. But once you do it yourself successfully, you will really take proud of your self and that will be a treasure in your whole life.
So every one should believe in yourself and be good to your friends. You can help each other to overcome difficulties together and enjoy a great time 🙂
