|My last day|
And this week at work was really fun. It was Karen's birthday yesterday so me, Victor and Melanie met up on Tuesday night in Karens office and filled it with 500 balloons! Our fingers bled and our ears were completely numb afterwards because of the noise coming out of the big machine we used but it was so much fun! And totally worth it. Karen was really surprised on her birthday, and if she's happy, I'm happy!
And today, on my very last day, I just came inside after a photo shoot around campus with the amazing Gabe! We took pictures of me at different locations for the school to use. It was a lot of fun and I will get some pretty amazing pictures that I can keep as a memory from my time at SBCC. I'll try to get them up here. He is such a great photographer.
So I had a good last week at work, and I actually feel less stressed than I have been in like a year. I wonder if that has to do with the fact that I am staying here this summer, because it hit me this week; I always get stressed and sick at the end of every semester and I have naturally just assumed that it has to do with finals but what if it had to do with me being close to going home? If that's what is stressing me out. Because I usually leave SB right after finals is done every semester. And this semester I'm leaving 10 days after finals and I'll be back here again really soon, and I am so excited to spend the summer here it's insane. I have butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it.
I feel like I finally zoned out of all of the negative stuff that I've had in my life and I feel so free. I am walking on clouds and I never ever want to come down. It is because of all of the amazing people I am surrounded by and all of the awesome things I get to do that I know I would have never done if I had stayed in Sweden. I have sort of always known that there is a possibility I might go back and stay here forever, and that is because I realized that I belong here more than I do in Sweden. That's the hard truth, because my family and friends are there so it is a tough decision but one that might be necessary for me to keep my happiness.
To be continued guys..
I will try to keep posting until the semester end!
