While typing this blog, I’m sitting outside enjoying the good weather. The last few days, or weeks actually, the weather has been perfect. Thinking back to the beginning of this experience, the first thing that comes to mind is the cold awful weather. A day started around 11.00 and ended at 16.00. so much for the vitamin D L. (people say that the highest rate of depression and suicide is to be found Scandinavia as they see so little light during the winter). However, now I know that they can build up their vitamin D during spring and summer, as the sun comes up at 04.00 and the sunset is at 22.30! Not sure if it works this way though.. Long days, short nights. Thank god for Ikea and its curtains.
So, in four days, I will be flying back to ordinary life. School, work, schoolwork, working on school, deadlines, DPFs, seminars, more deadlines and so on.. although I kind of looking forward to move back in my room in Nijmegen and see family and friends again, I would’ve never thought I would actually miss this place (and even more, this lifestyle and the people). I feel very lucky when it comes to the people I have met at school but also in Ronnen. living with 30 other students on a floor is not always easy, but it also has it advantages; there is always someone who is in for a coffee!
Last night we’d organized a last goodbye-party for the ones who are leaving next week. Because one of my friends is going to travel around Scandinavia for a few days, I won’t be able to say goodbye to her on the day I’m leaving. It felt a bit weird to say goodbye to someone who you will probably never see again (she’s from Hong Kong, and I still don’t have a moneytree in my backyard. I don’t even have a backyard…). We agreed on visiting Amsterdam together (how convenient) while she was still in Europe J.
While writing this, I think I will write a blog on each person I’ve met and I have good memories with… Sounds like a plan, no?
Well, that’s for later anyways, so bye now
