Yeeeey, I leave for Latvia tomorrow! And to show how excited I am to go I will say that I still have a lot of stuff to move out from my room. I slept only 8 hours in the last 2 days, I barely ate anything, and to top it off, I had a party 2 days ago with a lot of alcohol. I think it was a statement: “Last days in the Netherlands for a while so you gotta go the extra mile”. So now I’m falling asleep just by waiting a few minutes for the tea to reach the desired drinking temperature. In addition, I have to drop off my things at a friend’s in Rotterdam and that will probably take me 2 times going there. “Geez, why do I suck at planning things and doing them on time?”. Sarcasm away though, I am just too tired to feel excited at the moment, but I can’t wait to get on that plane tomorrow. Luckily it leaves at 14:50 so I still have some time in the morning to finish everything else (I hope). Anyways, after the party I went to bed at 6 in the morning and woke up at 11am. Why did I only sleep that long? well there was a new game that came out on xbox one, and that I was waiting months for, that I could play for only 2 days before I go. So who needs sleep when you’re doing something you love right? Little did I know, I was barely going to play that game because at my party the day before, I met this very intersting and intelligent girl. We had such a great conversation, the best I’ve had with anyone so far and also the longest. I have to admit that it was unexpected, and the timing couldn’t have been worse. Nevertheless, I spent time with her again yesterday and I’m going to again today. I guess all of this is part of the whole experience right? Though I thought I will meet someone when I’m in Latvia and then be sad that I have to go back home and not the other way around. It’s funny when you actually think about it. No doubt I will miss her and our crazy, funny, smart, and pointless conversations and the weird random things about us.
I guess all of these things have kept my mind away from the fact that I’m actually leaving. I’m still not processing it however. Not even when I think about it, but I’ll probably feel it tomorrow for sure. I do have to admit however that tomorrow was supposed to be the day that my change starts but the fact is, my change already started. This past week has been the best weeks I’ve had in a long time. I was filled with hope, good vibes, friendship and support for everything that’s to come in the future. I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m going to miss Breda a lot. I’m going to miss everyone who had an impact on my life for the past 2 years but also my oldest friends who have stuck with me through tick and thin. Oh wow, as I’m typing this it just hit me that I’m leaving. I can forget all I said before. These past 2 years have been the best. Let’s see what’s going to happen in this 1 year abroad now. So guess I should go finish everything now instead of writing this. Alright then, I will see you guys on the other side in my next post!!! Latvia here I come 🙂
