I have been back in Sweden for 2 weeks now to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. It's been absolutely amazing and I've really missed everyone. I arrived in Helsingborg the 23rd and went to bed almost immediately because I was exhausted from flying and coming back to the grey and rainy weather. The next day I was with my family and celebrated Christmas, a couple of days after that I met most of my friends and on New Years Eve I was with my friends at a party. I've been so happy during the days I've been here and I've realised I missed everyone more than I thought. Tomorrow I'm headed back to Fuengirola where I'm gonna stay at a hotel with my mom until Monday where I move in with my (yet another) new host family.
I forgot to mention this earlier but a couple of days before I was going home for Christmas my mom was suppose to rent an apartment and I was going to move in with her, but the apartment wasn't at all as the estate agent had promised. My mom then didn't rent the apartment and I was to find a new host family, for the fourth time :) I couldn't move back in with my previous family because the girl that lived there before wanted to move back so my place was taken. Luckily my mentor Liza found a new family for me and I got to visit them. They seem really nice and my room was bigger than my previous one. The thing I'm happiest about with the new family is that they live 2 minutes away from my school instead of Los Pacos that's 20 minutes away. A lot of my friends also live in that same neighbourhood which means I can easier just stop by their places.
Stella also decided to move with me because we have a great time together as roomies and she also wanted to live closer to our school. I'm really happy she moved with me because it's always nice to have her around and especially when it's a new family.
I'm really looking forward to going back to Fuengirola and meeting all my friends again, and of course the sunny weather. At the same time as I'm exhilarated to going back I'm also really going to miss Sweden, my family and my friends. It's easier here at home because it's never awkward as it sometimes can be with a host family and you don't have to feel like you're in the way at times. However I have a feeling that this new family is going to be really good and living with a host family really improves my Spanish which is great. I guess you can say that I have mixed feelings towards going back but I know that as soon as I've landed I'm going to be really happy and excited. After all my home is Fuengirola and I couldn't be happier about that!
See you in five months! <3
