January 29th, 2021 | I want a change

Today was the first time I've ever felt sick of Milan.

Coming from Greece just one year ago, everything still felt new to me. The language. The neighborhood. The buildings. The people.

Today, however, while returning from the supermarket, I stopped to take a quick photograph of the sunset.

As I was taking the photograph, a thought slipped through my mind.

"Fuck this place."

I could even believe it. First time that's happened.

As I continued on my way home, I thought about it some more.

I still stand by that thought. I'm happy that I'm leaving Milan in March.

My life changed here. But now it's time to move on.
