Saknar okomplicerade, kravlösa Sverige och friheten som man har där! Haha. Det är faktiskt en stor skillnad när man helt plötsligt inte kan ta sig NÅGONSTANS utan att någon kör en.

I miss how uncomplicated Sweden is. And the freedom and feeling of no pressure I have when I’m there.
It does make a huge difference when the surroundings doesn’t allow you to walk or take your bike so therefore, someone has to drive you everywhere you go.

In 5 days, I’ve been here for 3 months. And time have been flying by really fast!
I have about 7-8 months left and it feels very strange.

On one hand, I can’t imagine leaving my friends that I’ve got here.
But on the other hand, I am eager to come home so I can walk, go on bike rides, take the bus or the train and it’ll take me anywhere I need to go. To be able to go to the supermarket and buy whatever you’re craving or to have my own kitchen again with all of the special ingredients that doesn’t even exist here. To make dinner and other stuff that I can’t here.
To have the Fitness Center about 5 minutes away and work out exactly like I want to everyday and dance 2 times/week.
To have my friends so close so I know that I can reach them within 15 min.

It’s crazy how different two teenagers life can be depending on where in the world that they live.
And some of the girls here are going to be able to see that too when they come to visit me this summer.

One thing that I really really can’t wait for, is to see my friends and family again.
And I know, I know.. I shouldn’t be thinking about this right now.
I should enjoy every second of this and not think about home or get homesick.
But it’s just hard. It’s hard when you start to think, when it hits you that some things here would be so much easier if it would happen in Sweden. When you don’t know how to read peoples behaviors or attitudes here.
When you are used to something entirely else.

Something that I should tell you is that I moved Sunday.
I moved in to one of my best friend Jessi’s house.
They understood that I was having a hard time at my former house and they gave me an offer, I couldn’t resist, haha.

And since Jessi plays basketball, she’s going off to look at different colleges tomorrow so they figured that I could do something fun too so I’m going to have a sleepover at Regan’s house. And I love her and her family so that’s going to be awesome!

Now, I have to do some American Government and some College Composition before I go to sleep, sigh..

Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!

    Hannie, jag älskar dig. Så klart att man längtar hem ibland/ofta – konstigt vore det ju annars. Men livet har sina skeden och man lär sig väldigt mycket av att göra annorlunda saker. Du kommer att uppskatta så mycket i livet som du inte ens haft en aning om annars. Du vet att jag tycker att du är bäst och jag längtar också, ganska ofta, men allt har sitt pris och man skall inte tänka så mycket på det man INTE har utan uppskatta det man har istället. VI HAR VARANDRA och det är huvudsaken. Vi ses ju snart igen min lilla busiga älskling. Pussx3 / Pappa
