And so this lovely weekend in Lofsdalen has come to an end.
It has been super nice to just hike around in the beautiful
nature and it was super nice to have both my mum and my
dad there the same time. On Saturday, me and dad took
down some trees. And I have spend a lot of time to cuddle
with the sweetest puppy Hedda. Now - back to work and
Örebro for some days before I go home again to pack up
everything and move back in to my place in Örebro.

Hiking day in our beautiful Lofsdalen. It's such a wonderful
place, peaceful and the nature is amazing. The only thing
that would have been even better is the weather. It's still
snow in some places here and cold, so some sun would
have been perfect. Tomorrow, my dad and his family
comes to his cottage here in Lofsdalen. So me and mum
will go down and visit them. I am so lucky to have parents
with a good relationship even though they are divorced.

I went directly home to my hometown after work today.
Cuddling with my cats before me and my mum heads
to our cottage in the mountains tomorrow for some time
to just relax, hike in the mountains and read books. I need
this! Since I came back from Canada, my brain has been all over
the place and I can't focus. I forget things all the time and
just feel like I have no clue about anything. I have almost lost
a piece of myself (even if I have gained so much more) but I
just feel kinda half, and lost. So I really need to just relax and
do nothing, try to put my feelings and emotions right.

This last couple of days has been crazy busy. Work all day
and hanging out all nights. Thursday night was the last
Timebeer for this semester and it was super nice to see
everyone that I haven't seen for so long and also some
of the new exchange students that has been in Sweden
this semester. The weather was incredible also which
made this Timebeer even better. The weather has been
super good all these days when I have worked and missed
all the sun, and today when I am free - it's raining haha.
Friday was the last night at Kåren for this semester and
it was also super fun to be able to go there one time this
semester also since I haven't been there for so long! But
it was super crowded so it was almost impossible to move.
Last night, me and Christiana went to a barbecue at Tybble
but went home before midnight. It was super nice warm
weather at the day but when the sun went down, it got
really cold outside unfortunately. But it was cozy.

After just a few days of rest after the trip, I am back in my
beloved town Örebro for work. I came back here yesterday
to party together with my fellow fadder's for the next semesters
introduction programme for the exchange students. It was
a good night, fun to be back even though I miss Canada
a lot still, and my friends from there. But it was super fun
to see all my friends from here! Today was the most sunny
day this year in Sweden and I worked the whole day so I
missed all the sun. And it will continue with good sunny weather
for some days and I will work almost everyday. But it actually
felt good to work again, even if the sun was shining. It went
better than I thought, I thought that I had forgot it all on how
to do haha but I still had it in me!

I finally got to meet this gorgeous little baby girl for the
first time this Sunday. I can't believe that she already is
3 1/2 months! To be honest, I still can't believe with 100%
that my best friend, this little girl's mother, is her mother.
They came by my house today so we could go for a walk
and it still feels unreal that the baby we are carrying around
is her little Tilde, it feels like it wasn't too long ago since we
walked around with dolls but apparently, it was a very long
time ago haha! Time really flies by super fast...

I have also met some more childhood friends and spend
time with my family these couple of days since I arrived
back to Sweden. Tomorrow, I will go back to Örebro and meet
all my friends from there and go back to work for a week.

How I feel about everything right now? Everything is a
total chaos in my mind. I already miss my Canadian lifestyle
and all the friends I made on my exchange. I even miss to
be able to go to the dining hall every morning, but at the
same time, I appreciate the food here in Sweden and
my Swedish lifestyle. I want to live it both, at the same
time! I feel super ambivalent, like a part of me has been
taken away (which is true). And the sad fact is, that it
never will come back. Even if I go back for visiting later
in life, my exchange life will ever come back. The life I
lived in Canada will only be a memory and I feel super
sad about it. Right now, it feels like I live in the past.
I miss and look back on my previous half year. And at the
same time, I plan and structure my future life - what I am
going to do in some days, where I will stay the days
when I still don't have my own place to be in, how my
summer will be and so on. Just - totally chaos.

I went back safe to Sweden and arrived yesterday morning.
The whole day yesterday was filled with unpacking and the trying
to structure where to put everything at my mums place until I get
back to my own place. At the night, I slept 11 hours since I hadn't
slept more than maximum 3 hours the day before with all the
travelling and change of flights. I still feel exhausted today!

For dinner, I went to my daddy-family to eat for the first time in
over 5 months! It was delicious as usual and nice to meet them
all again. They also had a new family member, a little puppy
named Hedda. Super sweet but bites all the time. My favourite
dog is still Jaffa and I got some good cuddling time with her.

Yesterday night was a baseball night. We saw Mets VS Giants.
It was a cool atmosphere but I will be honest and admit that
Baseball isn't my favourite sport. It was my first baseball
game ever that I have went to and probably my last for at
least a longer time. It was cool for the first 30 min but then
I got kinda bored. The players didn't even hit the ball in
9/10 times, so what we mainly watched was one person
that throw the ball and one person that stood and looked
when it came towards. I could imagine to see another game
later in the future, if it's a warmer wether and if I have a
lot of snacks to chew on so I don't get to bored haha!
But I am happy that I at least have went to a game now and
can say that I have experienced a game in real life.

I am sitting at the airport now, about 2 hours before my flight
leaves. Tomorrow at 9am, I will be back in my beloved
Sweden and meet my family again! I have missed them
incredible much so I am looking forward for tomorrow a lot.
At the same time, I am not at all finished with New York.
I have so much more to see and experience, so I will be
back here in the future - for sure!

Today has been a whole day of exploring in New York City.
I have walked over 25 thousand steps! I have seen the City
Hall Park, Brookfield Place, Washington Square Park,
Greenwich Village, September 11 Memorial fountain for the
offers of the attack and what is left of the twin towers.
I also went over to Staten Island with a ferry and saw the
whole Brooklyn, New Jersey and Manhattan from the boat.
The view was totally stunning! My visit on Staten Island was
very short though so I didn't see that much there. But it
has been a beautiful day with many new inputs and views.
We ended the day with some ice-cream from a very special
ice-cream bar that a relative to Sigmund Freud had
recommended! Ebba and Kajsa had met him on their trip
so we got some recommendations and in the ice-cream
case, it was a good recommendation. The ice-cream was
super yummy and fresh!
