Two years ago today...i had just arrived in belgium. I cannot begin to express to you how weird of a feeling it is to know that in a sense, it's all over. that adventure, that stage of my life, everything there is now just one giant memory. the weirdest part is that although it's over, my experience in belgium is really never-ending. I would not be who i am and where i am today without having gone on such a life-changing adventure. It's just weird how it feels like yesterday i was eating french fries on the cobblestone streets with my classmates, or going to language school with the mail order brides, or even just hopping on a train and going to one of the most beautiful train stations in the world as an after school adventure. just take me back.... In the mean time, my life has gone on. I finished my first year of college and had a pretty good time. Managed to build up my GPA by working hard and also got to participate in multiple music ensembles and activities. I also had my first serious boyfriend and got to experience life living almost completely alone. I liked it. One thing i find very interesting is my current living situation. i will start by telling you that i absolutely hated my current roommate in high school. i have no idea why, but we just didnt get along. As soon as i got back from belgium we were totally fine. She's Dutch, and we speak Dutch together quite a bit. It's gotta be the coolest thing in the world. Another fun thing is that my mom and i went on vacation to New York this summer to take some time to relax and to see my 1st host family while they were there visiting.
