Post from New York

So I joined the Hogwarts Running Club this year (which you can check out here –> www.hogwartsrunningclub.com ) and they recently had a global event for all of us Gryffindors out there to exchange post cards. It was kind of like secret Santa, but with postcards and I was so happy when I got mine all the way from NYC!!!

I will definitely take part in an exchange like that again, and can only recommend it. It was so nice to get a real postcard and to send away some joy, too.

I’m on the road again…

Okay tecnically I am on the tracks since I am sitting on the train to school with James Blunt in my ear. But I came to think of the song thous the title.
In one months time I have/had six examns. I have written four of them and I have a pretty good feeling, but you never know.
The darkness is gone so when I am on my way to school now the sun is just rising. Personally I miss winter. Or it least it could have been a little longer since we literally had ONE week of snow. Later today I have a presentation. So wish me luck :)

Studying…

I really, really should be studying for the exams I have tomorrow.
The thing is that I never get as much done as when I am SUPPOSED to study.
I have made a lot unpleasant phone calls today that have been due several weeks.
I kind of wanna do the dishes now and after that maybe I should try and safe the world.
Ok, just kidding, but that’s how I feel right now.
Making up excuses for not studying. Like my dog had to go out and the weather was so nice so we went on a long walk.
But now I try to actually study for a bit, the exam will (unfortunatly) not write itself.
Bye guys, see you soon

Snow

Yesterday snow finally fall in the town where I live, and everybody got exited about it.

It’s kind of funny how a so simple thing like frozen water can get people all happy and exited.

I don’t know, but when I see the world covered in snow, everything seems so peaceful and quiete and I can’t help this smile getting on to my face.

Furthermore we have a family tradition, that on the 6th of December, Sant Nikolaus comes to the homes at night, and if you were a nice child and did clean your shoes you will get sweets and maybe a little present into your shoes.

Living as far away from home as I do right now, I did not expect him to come. But to my surprise, when I got up this morning, I found something in my shoes anyway.

I can say that the snow in combination with this unexpected present really put a bright smile on my face, and I haven’t lost that smile, that I walked to school with, yet.

I hope you all have a nice day, and find many reasons to smile today. =)

Young in Action

…everything can break, but a heart can break into a thousand pieces. If you say you are my friend, then surely it is true.

The last ten days I have participated in a ”Youth in Action” exchange program that should help improving the cooperation between different countries in the EU.

The countries that took part were Sweden, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Hungary and Slovenia.

The place where the exchange took place is called Rogla and it’s a skiing place in Slovenia.

Now I am on my way back home again and the lyrics of the song in the title could not be more suitable.

I am sitting on the plane that is going to bring me back home, and sure I can look down at the clouds and see that the sky over them is blue even though from the earth it looked like the sky was really grey. What it actually means is of course metaphoric and means that there always is a light at the end of the tunnel, but that you of course can stop believing in that light when you don’t see it. And right now, that really is true for me, because it just feels heavy to get home.

And of course you will (hopefully) keep contact with people. But that really is not the same thing, and it’s never going to be again.

Many of the persons that you met you might never meet again, and that does hurt – it feels like there is someone standing and making my heart smaller or if their were little animals eating holes in it.

I mean of course it seems a bit ridiculous if you think about that you just know them for about one week, but it is surprising how strong feelings can get even under that short period of time.

This morning, at 4 o clock the Italians did leave and there was just one person in the group I am really going to miss, so I did not cry then. Even when we left together with the portuguese and a few of the greeks and said good-bye to every one that was left I felt ok. When I did say good-bye to the nice greeks, I still felt ok – maybe because it all felt really unreal.

But when we had to say good-bye to the portuguese to get on our plane it felt like my feet did not want to move ever again. I started crying and there were others getting tears in their eyes, too. It felt unreal but at the same time so really painfully.

They have been my favorite group, but of course I liked the other groups at well; we had real fun together.

When did take of my pullover a moment ago, I did see the ”autograph” that one of the portuguese wrote on my arm and I had to cry again.

Ok, I am very sentimental. But I think it is good to express your feelings.

Now I am going to try to sleep a while and try not to think about if I will ever see my new friends again.

Back again…

I am sorry I haven’t written anything on my blog since Christmas. I just finished my second high school year and it felt like time just flew away and suddenly here I am, and just have one year of school left. I can not even try to explain how that feels. I mean school is like everything I have ever known since I was six years old and suddenly that just will go away? It’s kind of freaking me out, so I try not to think about it (or at least not for now) and instead enjoy the schooltime I have left (which for this term only is one week). Well I just wanted to update you and I promise I will post more often now. Every post might not be that serious but I hope you enjoy all of them =)
