I have a german friend here who has become my favorite person. Her name is Jana and she is one of the most cheerful people i have met. Jana loves her movies and she is allergic to lactose, so it's always an adventure with her food. Then there is Esse, after seeing him for 5 minutes you can have enough laughter to last you 3 days. He is a very genuine person, originally from Peru he grew up in Stockholm. On days when you think there is no one happy here, he changes your mind right away. I've tried salsa dancing once since I have been here, and he was a professional! I learned the moves pretty quick.
There are moments in my day when I miss home and I think about my family ad friends, and i become sad for about 2 seconds then I realize how amazing it is for me to be here right now! thank god for technology or my mother would be going crazy with out me being able to reach her. I am planning a trip to London right now with Jana and a trip to Paris with my room mate Parri.
It's already getting cold here and they said snow could be falling in the next few weeks! i am sooooo scared to actually live in the snow and have to walk around in it. Then the fact that there will be only 5 hours of daylight is pretty hard to picture, so it will be fun to see how that lifestyle is. I can understand how people can get so depressed here easily when it gets sooo dark and sooooo cold. Well i am going to shine my little light here for as long as possible until i come back home to seattle for christmas!
