Another quick stop at my dad's and granny’s, then I am off to Zuerich where I'll meet Simone, a friend from university who I also hadn’t seen in many years.

I am sitting on the campus of Heidelberg University. It's a sunny, pleasant day. The place is hopping with students, academics, researchers, interns etc., international ones and of different age groups. I am loving the vibe melancholically. Not because I have such great memories of my own university time. But because I regret not having enjoyed student life more. To me, it was all work. There was a goal and a plan. And those had to be achieved and followed. It never occurred to me that there may be alternative plans to reach the same goal or maybe even alternative goals. I wish I had lived a little, enjoyed life more, appreciated the freedom I could have had, but wasn’t aware I did.
Well, I guess I am a bit of a late bloomer. Sure as hell I have been catching up, enjoying life and freedom lately :)
Now, I just need to find a way of combining the two. Responsible adult life and enjoyable freedom. That should be doable, right? I’ll figure out how.(Tips welcome :))
