Here, I’m going to write how I felt during the project. At first days here I felt handless at all, and everyone seemed to be more mature than I was. First I was a bit sad because of it, but now I realize that probably it’s a normal thing to feel like that when you are in a new country among new circumstances of living.

So I decided to imagine myself as an embryo in the womb of the mother (Slovenia will be a womb for me for next 11 months). After 2 weeks here I noticed that this embryo started to have some first attributes of a human being :) So let’s see who I’ll become after the whole evs project.
