So semester two has been easier, not educational wise but emotionally. It has been much easier coming back to Glion after a week or weekend in Gothenburg because now I'm not going back to Glion, I'm going home. I have met people and built relationships that have made this place my home, they have given me comfort in the hardest times and made me love life a little bit more. I haven't really been counting down the days until I go back to Sweden anymore because I'm comfortable here now, I mean obviously I can't wait for summer and to be back in Sweden but life here is good.
Finals are here and right around the corner and semster two is coming to an end, in 2 weeks I'll be going back to Sweden for summer vacations and then off to internship somewhere around the world, not sure yet, but I'll let yall know when I know.
I'd definitely say that this semester was a blast. I've met some new people, gotten closer to people I already knew, traveled places that I'd never though I'd go and made memories with people I'll never forget.
... and definitely done some crazy things ...
The first trip of the semester.
Rented a car with Audrey, Valerie and Kate and spontaneously drove to the place "Where dreams come true." Drove up on Friday night arrived Saturday morning, went to Disneyland, had an absolut blast and the drove back to Switzerland Saturday night.
Two weeks after Disney I ended up in Zermatt with my amazing class, ESE2, where we worked at The Ulltracks, Matterhorn (an skiing event) for 5 days. This was definitely a trip to remember, not only did we all get hands on experience in the field that we are getting into we also got much closer as a class. We worked together for 5 days and made some amazing memories together.
A week after Zermatt it was time for mid-term break, which I spent in Sweden, hanging out with friends, family and working. Going back is always nice, seeing the people you love the most and have gotten me where I am today is a never a bad thing.
Pappas, 50th Birthday
After a week and a half in Sweden for midterm break I went back to Glion for 3 days and then flew right back home to Gothenburg again to celebrate the (now) old mans 50th birthday. The day I came home we went out to eat with my family and grandpa to celebrate and then on that Saturday my pappa had a big party that was a huge success.
I can not explain how happy I am to have such an amazing father, he has taught and given me so much, I'll never be able to repay him for everything that he has done and sacrificed for me.
In general I have to say that I'm very happy with how semester 2 turned out. I've worked and helped out with amazing events and been able to capture some amazing memories with people that will be very hard to forget, whether it is going out for a beer or ice cream or going tobogganing or swimming.
This semester will definitely be hard to forget and not seeing my wonderful class for 8 months will be even harder.
Next up, S E M E S T E R T H R E E, Internship....
So after living in Glion, Switzerland for almost a whole year, new adventures are waiting. I've gone through both an emotional and crazy ride since I've gotten here. I've not only learnt to cherish the once I love but also cherish moments that might never happen again. It's safe to say that I am in a happy place, I have so much to be grateful for. The next chapter now is internship after the summer vacations. It all feels so weird, it felt like yesterday that I arrived at Glion and now in a couple months I'll be heading off for internship somewhere else in the world.
The life unexpected has just started and I couldn't be more excited in seeing where the next chapter takes me.
