Nothing new guys, nothing new. For real. I could be lying saying how amazing and exciting my life is at the moment, but it's not true, plus I hate lying. It's just about trying to make through the last weeks of university and staying sane really, but at the same time it all feels so right. I don't know how to explain it. I remember how much I wanted to come to this university and to be a student, and now to think that this part of my life is going to be over in just a month is actually quite emotional. So I guess even though all the work and pressure is making me lose sleep and stressed, I am still grateful. I'm listening to a lot of music whilst I read or write, running every other morning on the beach and just taking one day at a time. I do think about what my life will be like in a month, in a few months, at the end of this year, and even though it is a little bit distracting, I've never met anyone who lives completely in the moment. What I mean is, sometimes we all think about the past or wonder about our future and that is totally fine, we're humans and there's only so much we can do. No need to beat yourself up for being who you are.
I still can't wrap my head around how much one's life can change in just a year. And I am not just talking about my hair, which was probably the longest its ever been back when these photos were taken last spring (and if you read and follow my blog, you'll know that now they're much shorter and blonder), but also about how much I've learned over this short amount of time. I guess it depends how you look at it - for someone, one year can be a very long time, for somebody else it can be the opposite. But what I am trying to say here, is that the best lessons come through every day situations, and university may provide you with knowledge or give you amazing experiences but only life will prepare you for real living. And today I am grateful for that - for the lessons that made me who I am today. There is always room for new lessons though. And now a little bit about today. Since today is Easter and I wanted to relax a little, I spent an afternoon with my very good friend Katharina. We were soaking up the sun on the beach and just enjoyed the beautiful summery weather. How did you spend your Sunday? And did you celebrate Easter?
P.S today's blog post and photo style were inspired by this song. I usually write when I am listening to music and thought it would be nice to share with you what inspires my blog posts. Would you be willing to see what songs I listen to in the future posts?
