I believe it was a week ago since we had a gathering with the Nordplus crew. I had done a quick slideshow, to show of course, and it brought back a lot of memories for us. There was a lot of laughter and students who were dying to tell their stories. I must say that we have pretty good story tellers from Svea. It was really interesting to hear everyones experiences. There was a lot of emotions during the trip. I felt most excitement. And I kind of felt like I was about to throw up in the early early morning. Some actually did. I mean, we had to get up at 4 o’clock in the morning. That’s not everyday you do that.
Some of us felt homesickness the minute we landed. I sure didn’t. Am I a bad person for that? Should I be punished? The reason I didn’t feel homesick was because I already new Kristina since she was my guest in Sweden. We became really good friends and I was happy to see her again. And then, my best friend, Malin, was also staying with Kristina. Although it was awesome and all, I think it was very comforting for both of us. Mostly for her because she’s a year younger than me, even if she’s more mature than I am. I know she would have done perfectly fine without me. Wait, I actually take that back. I think I felt the same comfort as she did having her with me. I mean, It’s kind of scary and nerve wracking to live live with another family. In another house. In a foreign country.
To be honest, there was a lot that was not perfect. But would have the trip been better if everything was perfect? What is perfect anyway? Story tellers don’t have anything to tell if nothing fun happens. It might not be fun while it happens, but at least it makes a good story. We had sooo much fun, because we made it fun.
