7 Things to Know Before Moving to a New City on Your Own
You are about to embark on a new, exciting adventure! And there are some things that might make you comfortable to know before.
1. Your social life will initially be almost disgusting.
If you saw Crazy ex-girlfriend, you know what I’m talking about. But this will not always be the case: it takes patience and time to build interesting and first-rate relationships later. Be confident.
2. So in the meantime, you will spend a lot of time alone.
It may seem to you depressing. In reality, you will learn to know yourself better and enjoy the time you spend with yourself. There is no better way to prepare for life and possibly an important relationship.
3. You will necessarily have to take better care of yourself.
Yes, even physically. If you want to make a career, be successful in the study or in any other business you prepare to do, you will have to contain the noise: late evenings limited to weekends, controlled drunkenness, rest of at least 7 hours per night, a balanced diet and a Some physical activity is essential when you have to manage everything by yourself.
4. Probably your first house will not be the final one.
Please make your refuge, but do not affectionate; not yet.
5. At first, the new city will seem huge and more chaotic than it actually is.
View it from above (no, not with a drone, with Google Maps), use the tools at your disposal (such as Google Earth), store the routes of public transport and make a long way on foot (it will also help you discover fascinating corners of the city and keep circulation and metabolism active). In a few months, you’ll feel at home.
6. The life you’ve always dreamed of in that city may never come.
Or it may but after a long time. Or it could only come about once in a while. But do not worry, you will live many other totally unexpected things (which is not necessarily good … or maybe yes, who knows?).
7. You can behave like an eternal tourist, discovering new places every week.
And you will see that in the end, you will be carrying around your new “native” friends, who instead have always taken for granted the city where they were born and raised. At that point, your concept of “home” will be changed forever.
