You learn to live with it
by Lorenzo Piccoli
Today has been yet one another beautiful day. I do not know what’s wrong with Bruxelles, but the city is honouring me with stunningly sunny weekends.
Among other great activities I had a coffee with Peter, who is a student at Central European University and was telling me about the pros and cons of studying there. In the course of his Ph.D. Peter spent several years abroad, mostly in the US and in Canada. We talked about several issues, but here on the blog I will report only one sentence about long-distance and his way to manage to keep the relationship with the person who is now his wife. Peter said: “When I began my Ph.D. we knew exactly what we were getting into. Going long-distance is a rollercoaster. You never get used to it. I would rather say, you learn to live with it”.
