If you’re going to San Francisco..

..Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

I dream of San Francisco. The amazing atmosphere. The different stereotypes you see walking in the streets. The San Francisco bay. California. Nice weather with just the right amount of windyness… ahh..
I can honestly call San Francisco one of my favorite places in this world, even though I only spent two-three days of spring break there.

When you get the feeling..

Just when you get that feeling.. It feels like I’ve come back home after my life (my life back here at home) has been “paused” for a year, or more exactly 11 months. It feels like everyone here has become a lot more mature, FASHIONABLE and should I dare say.. boring?

I feel like I came back and turned into who I was before I even left. I know I’ve matured a lot myself and I’ve definetely become a bit more ballsy, which is of course good and bad.. mostly good LOL.
Back to the sad part.. coming back home, where everyone is more mature, fashionable and ohh.. busy? Suddenly everybody has a job, so I finally got one myself, yay for that.

Boyfriends; it’s as if everyone’s got one of those too.. I guess I should focus on the great things about being single.. especially this time of the year.. woop wooop!!!.. (or not)

Anyway, life’s brilliant, I have work tomorrow.. this weekend, or more specifically this saturday

night will be eeeeepic!

What do I know, I’m just a teenager!


So I just got home at what I would think is an early time, since I am on break at the moment. I don’t know if you are, or were a teenager once.. however you should know the feeling of being so mad you could cry. Mad at your parents, rules and just not having any say most of the time. Myself I think I’m a very sensible person, so why should I not be trusted to have more freedom??? I mean so what if I might screw up a little.. Personally I believe self-experience is a LOT more effective than just hearing from another person what you’re supposed to do and not do.

I came back home

So, I finally got back home. I guess I can’t be called an exchange student anymore, when in fact I’m just back to being old me, which I was kinda during the whole thing.. but then not at all.

I feel like coming back home is like traveling back in time, as in traveling back to before I left. Everything is just as it was the weeks up to my leave. Two of the people who at that point probably were the most important  in my life had left, as in moved away. The three small, but yet big, differences since I got back, are that my cat and my dog died.. (I know, it’s being a typical child to grief over a pet.. ) Also a new dog moved into the house.

The bad thing about coming home is that nobody will ever understand what it feels like having two lives. I do have two lives; one that I left in the US, and one that I’ve come back home for. I don’t have any other exchange students in my area, so yeah I’m pretty much on my own again, in a way.

Anyway, coming home I’ve felt homesick, as ironic as that sounds. I miss Illinois and the way-too-hot weather, polka’s, country and all that other stuff.

Since my jetlag has almost worn off, I’ve almost gone back to my regular routines.. which means bedtime should be around now.. Making this short!

Half birthday!

I decided before I started this blog, that it was not going to be a blog about my typical daily life and happenings…
Today though was just great. I had some of my dearest Americans around, and realized how much I take for granted..

Lately I have looked forward to leaving to go back home; to see my family, friends and so on.. but what I didn’t realize fully, is that I have it all here. I have got to know a whole other family, who is my second family now, and friends who mean more to me then I ever thought.

Even though I am far away from all the things I used to know, I learned to know something else, something new and different, and words can’t describe how important that is for me.

Just felt like throwing that out there. It’s true what you’ve all heard so many times.. “You don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s gone!”.

Random post, random day.

Right now I am sitting in my English class, just got done writing a paper.

School today hasn’t been that bad. Went to lunch at DQ, God I love American fast-food (too bad my body doesn’t feel that way).

It feels wonderful that it’s finally Friday again. This weekend will consist of at least one show with the BBB band.

Tuesday is valentine’s day and I, as many other anti-valentine’s day, do not have a date, which is just wonderful.

Read this interesting post a few days ago, on a (literally) positive blog.
