What the hell am I doing here?

I came to Warsaw two years ago to study Korean Language and Culture at Warsaw University. In Lodz University we don't have such cool departments. At first I wasn't very happy because I'm not a huge Warsaw fan. Let's be honest. I think that most of Poles are not very into Warsaw. It's just a grey, poor city that is trying to be a great European capital. But it has also it's cool sides. For exampe: student's discounts or cheap tickets. And the ability to meet a variety of people from different cities. I think that 60% of students wasn't growing up in Warsaw.
It's fun to study in other city than your hometown. You start living on your own (or almost on your own), you spend more time with students (for exaple sharing flat with them), and you don't have to study math or chemistry any more. So there are some bright sides.
I'm sharing flat with two friends. We live near Lazienki Park so we have fast and easy access to the University. So now I got used to living in Warsaw and I'm starting to like this city. The variety of people is so interesting. There is also more foreigners to know. Plus I have a flat where people can stay over during their trips.
