My first love letter to Rotterdam
This is my very first letter, to show you all of my love. I know there is a bit of a distance now between us, I’m sorry for that, but my love for you is only getting stronger.
It’s a bit awkward sending you a love letter, because I’m not sure if you know me. Yes, you’ve seen me a lot, but you have seen so many people. Well, in case you don’t remember me, I’ll introduce myself.
I’m Lindsay, just turned 22, and lived in you, Rotterdam, my whole life until last summer. After studying for two years at the Acteerschool, located in the building of het Hofpleintheater, I packed my bags and went cheating on you with Maastricht, where I’m now studying to become an actress.
What I like most of all in what I’m doing, is that it is very unpredictable and challenging. I know that I want to act, but I have no idea how or what my career will be. Maybe I also want to create theatre or performances, or write plays or poems, or whatever comes in my mind or on my way. I’ve already learned so much, not only about acting, maybe even more about myself. I learned that I like writing, so that is what I’ll do for you. I will send you letters, about my thoughts, my experiences and other things I need to share.
Lots of love,
P.S.: Almost every weekend I come back to peek at you, sneakily, and feel your warmth.
