10 more days to go #Home
It is 10 days before I leave and they are a roller coaster. Friends, dentist appointments, birthdays, grandma, last minute shopping, everything is stuffed in these last few days. My head is buzzing because of it. And it is great, it’s nice to see that there are so many people who care enough to want to see me. But because I’m so busy there is no time to wrap my head around the fact that I’m actually leaving for a pretty long time and that I won’t see my family or friends for five months. Especially my mom, dad and sisters. I barely see them these days because I have things to do and they have things to do, but I am going to miss them by the time I’m gone. I just can’t find the time to talk to them.
Some people are making a little too much drama about all of it though. They get al clingy and go like “OMG I’m gonna miss you so much! I don’t know what I will do without you!’ and I just stand there and think about how many times I see them in a year (maybe 5) and that they’ll probably survive. It is more the little things I’m going to miss. The discussions at the dinner table, being able to text a friend for a drink, those kind of things. It is funny, the things you miss when you are traveling. They are never what you expect them to be. When I was in Thailand my friend really wanted a sandwich with cheese, I just missed my shower.
I’m really looking forward to leaving though. The freedom of traveling is of a kind that you don’t find around university. The feeling that you don’t have any obligations at all, only to yourself. I’ve never learnt more about myself then when I was traveling. But it still feels like something that is really far away. It is not, and that just won’t sink in. At least I’ve decided where I will go in the last week. First it will be Spain to learn Spanish, then New Zealand (yes it is for sure now) and then Bali with you for the last month! The thought of travelling alone scares me a little, but it’s good to get out of that comfort zone once in a while!
So, that’s what’s going on in my life at the moment. The next letter you will get is probably from Spain!!
