It has been 6 months this week since I said my last goodbyes and took the plane to England. I am halfway through and thought I might give another update with some everyday life pictures from the past weeks. It has certainly been a time of ups and downs but in the most beautiful way possible. I have learned to be more polite and grateful, to be welcoming to whoever pops over for a cup of tea. I understood that I couldn’t replace anyone and that words are sometimes not the best and easiest way of communication. I learned how to make a proper cup of tea, honey & lemon, cheese on toast and irish coffee. I never knew there were so many ways you could eat potatoes, and I already miss the pie’s, gravy and parsnips with honey. They seem like the simplest things to think of but they mean a whole lot to me. There are so many things I miss about Germany; my friends who are hundreds of kilometres away and who used to be in a walking distance of less than 5 minutes. The exercise I used to do, the photographs I used to take and the easy public transport I used to have. My family, school and all the things i didn’t appreciate enough. But I am not homesick, I am far too grateful for all the things people are doing for me over here every day. And when I think about it, I am gonna miss England just as much; I don’t know what I am gonna do without the people I live with and without the people I go to school with. I couldn’t do without the daily laughs at home or the music we sing to. On the one hand is has only been 6 months, but on the other it’s already been 6 months and I have no idea what is gonna happen in the last half of this year.
