This month I started my final internship for my studies and that means working fulltime… So my life has gone from one and a half month of no obligations, to quite busy from my point of view.
Working all day and after that I have two nights a week filled with activities of the student society and when I get home I have a ferret to take care of. It’s been a bit overwhelming last month, but I guess I’ll get used to it. Sometime…
And on top of that I got the flu during the last 9 days of the month… It’s not fair.
Anyways, it’s been a chaotic month so there hasn’t been much going on besides that. But what I can show you, I will. Among which is my newest hobby. Continue reading February Diary→
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll probably know: I moved back home to The Netherlands after having an amazing experience in Stockholm.
I came back in the middle of the month, so there were still two lovely weeks in Sweden left. I visited some museums, walked around the city and experienced real cold weather. The last week and a half it has been around -16 degrees Celcius. Brrrrr…
After saying goodbye to my friends from the church I visited, it was time to pack everything up and go back.
Coming home was so nice, seeing my family again and finally hugging Mexy after 5 months. But it took only half a day or so for everything to feel normal again. Soon it seemed to me like I just woke up from the best of dreams. But luckily I have my parents, sister and friend who can pinch me and tell that I really lived there.
I don’t really have pictures of when I got back, but these are the ones from my last days in Stockholm.
It was sad to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for 5 months, but it was good. The last week I visited several museums, enjoyed the city from a viewpoint and walked it’s streets to say goodbye.
Coming home was something I really looked forward to: hugging my family again, seeing my grandparents and of course hugging, kissing and playing with my ferret Mexy after missing her for 5 months. Pretty much as soon as I touched ground in The Netherlands, my whole study abroad period seemed like a big nice dream. Everything around me is familiar and I’m used to it, it’s as if I woke up from a 5 month sleep and hit the play button again.
Luckily I have my family who visited Stockholm, so they can pinch me: It wasn’t just a dream, I really lived in Stockholm. And I have brought some souvenirs back home to remember my time there.
December was the month of finishing my classes and handing in the final essay assignments. Quite some stress, but I’m glad to say that I finished it perfectly in time and I have passed all my classes! High Five & Happy Dance!
It was also a very fun month, because my Dutch friend Siglinde came to visit Stockholm for a few days and I went north to Lulea with my South-African friend Ancia. Both special and joyful events and I’ll show you all of it in pictures below. Continue reading December Diary→
