On My Last Day of School.

Today marks my last day of school. I have to say, it's been an amazing last three years. I remember back at my first day when my man drove me to the main station in summer 2016 because we still haven't moved to our new city. I had to drive two hours long to school by train up to three months, wake up at 4 a.m and get to be home at 7 p.m. everyday and honestly, I don't want it any other way. 

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny. ― Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym

During my time there I make many wonderful friends. I learn how to deal with many characters and personalities, which helps me both personally and professionally. I challenge myself everyday, keep pushing myself beyond my limits just to see how far I can go, and I am always surprised by them every single time, and it's worth it you guys. Without this opportunity, I'm pretty sure it'd take me longer to grow into an adult myself right now. And to be more honest, it doesn't feel like the last day of school. It feels surreal and.. kinda sad, because I know I have to (almost) complete one chapter in my life, which I am forever grateful for, to welcome another great one. But I am not here to mourn, I just want to share something with you guys: life can be freakin' short when you experience many beautiful moments that shape you into who you are at this very moment and you should appreciate each of them.

We had a very cozy breakfast together at school and I also baked raspberry cupcakes for us. With the last day of school comes bunch of hours of studying hard for my finals next month and I am really excited about it. 

I also want to thank you for supporting me and being on this journey with me the whole time. It's amazing to be able to share a part of me online and have you guys here on my blog. As most of my days now consist of studying and more studying, I will keep you guys updated very soon and I hope you guys have a wonderful start into the week!

Until then.
