I've had such amazing days back home. Got here Friday night, and tomorrow morning it's off to the airport again. I came here feeling completely exhausted after the exam weeks, and I'm still really tired, but mentally I feel so much more ready to tackle a new block in school. As much as I love Amsterdam, I'm so lucky to get weekends at home here and there, get a little break from all the craziness that is uni life. And honestly, as usual, I haven't really done much, but still had such a great time. I spent a lot of time at my parents house, just relazing with my them. Had a lot of nice homecooked dinners, and a couple of nice meals out, did a little shopping, got to spend time with a couple of friends, as well as relatives, and I slept - a lot. Oh and it's been snowing like non stop since I got here, so I got to enjoy a bit of proper winter as well. I'm a bit sad to go back to Amsterdam already tomorrow, but on Friday I'm going to Belgium with school, so it's time to get back and start packing for a whole different kind of trip. And then school starts again and I'm pretty sure this coming block is just going to fly by. I feel ready and honestly quite excited for it (although I'm sure I'll question why on earth I said that in a couple of weeks). But, it's a fresh start and every day that goes by we're a little closer to spring and let's be honest, life is just better when there's a little more sunshine and a little less cold. I'll see you guys back in Amsterdam again!
Exams are done for now and I’ve got a few days off from school, so yesterday I got on a flight home! Took way too long getting here because of technical problems with the aircraft, resulting in late boarding, which then resulted in having to sit in the airplane for about an hour waiting for our turn to take off. If that wasn’t enough, all runways but one were closed at Arlanda due to the snow, so we had to circle Stockholm a couple of times before we could land. But, I finally arrived a bit past midnight and now I’m here, so all good in the end! I really haven’t done much today - stayed in bed all morning, went to the mall for a bit and had an amazing dinner with my parents. Had drinks planned with a friend tonight, but my body was just screaming “please let me rest!!!”, so I decided to stay in. Good decision, considering I feel pretty much ready for bed already. I always have this energy crash after exams, you know when the stress wears off, you finally allow yourself to relax and the tiredness just comes flooding. Better rest a bit before next weekends adventure - I’m going camping with school. Yes, camping in February. Thank you for that amazing idea Hotelschool. Anyways, I’m gonna enjoy a glass of wine with my parents now before heading to bed. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
