I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.

“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”  – Albert Einstein

 In my opinion, the campus is huge. I mean, my University in Italy (Genoa) was big, but all the buildings were situated in different points of the city and you did not have what you call a ‘Campus’. Here the Campus is hugely built in one sole area (the Faculty of Medicine in the City Hospital is the only exception), with every building that seems to have been built for the students, with bookable rooms for group works or study groups, with dozens of computer rooms with any kind of computers and printers, with dozens of tables, chairs, sofas and armchairs where students can socialised or study, with a working air conditioning unit in the summer and a working heating system in the winter.

When I had been accepted to my programme (around April 2012), the first e-mail that I got from the Uni suggested me to start as soon as possible to look for a place where to stay in Linköping. After a month I had found what I was looking for on the University web-site (! – yeah, students have their own notice board for any need!), a 3-rooms apartment to share with a Swedish student. An empty room in a quarter of the city with an unutterable name (Skäggetorp) was waiting for me.

P.S.: I am not following a real chronological order of my experience, I know, but thinking about what preceded and followed my arrival to Sweden after this ‘long’ time (it has been already 16 months!), the memories fight with each other and pop out with a random order.

P.S. 2: As you may have already noticed, I like quotes. :)
