Back to Lithuania

Well, yesterday I came back to Lithuania after spending the easter with my family back home in Sweden. I can really say it was nice to be home in Sweden, sleeping in my own bed without earplugs, close the door when I wanted privacy and take good showers!

 

To be home was a good time to think, get knew energy and reflect a little bit over the time I have been in Lithuania. To be home was a good way to get perspectives and to think about all the differences between living in the countries.

When I came to Lithuania it was impossible not to notice the different living conditions, but coming home made it even more clear.

 

To got back to Lithuania was not difficult but I most admit I enjoyed home. I thought that maybe the spring was on its way hear to but when I came it was a lot of rain and storm and I start to think if there really is a spring in Lithuania, but i most be!

It is about midterm right now and I start to think a little bit about the final exams in june, even if it is a long time until then! Right now there is quit a lot to do in school and there is never a time when I can sit back and se “I don’t have anything to study”.
I have so say I am impressed about the quality of the education, in the beginning I was a little bit sceptical but now I really can feel I have learned a lot. And learning is not only about the subject in the classes, it is also about myself. To be abroad really is a time to get to know and develop yourself.

 

Well, I will keep holding my thumbs and wish that the spring soo will be really on its way in Lithuania.

Better and better!!

What a cliché but I have to admit that time runs fast when you have a great time! There is a lot of things that has happened since Monday.

First of all I have to agree and say sharing a small room with someone and kitchen, bathroom and shower with MANY PEOPLE isn’t easy. Somehow I think I’m doing better for each day.

Today we have been to Trakai, the old capital of Lithuania. It was nice, there was an old castle and lakes, I also tried some traditional Lithuanian food. I thought I was used to the cold from home but I was really wrong. Wind and snow made the trip so cold, still very refreshing!

I have been really tired for some days, for many reasons. I think I start to relax and actually enjoy my dormitory and to be with so many people, in the same time it really takes time to adjust and “accept” things like a really dirty kitchen and people who are screaming and partying 5 a.m. But I say to myself I will get used to it!

I told you about our planned trip to IKEA, well it didn’t went so well… We got lost whit the busses and we ended up somewhere and no one spoke English so instead we went to a nice restaurant. Yesterday we went to a shop called Maxima and bought everything we needed for the kitchen and some things for the room. As you can see in the pictures we try to separate the room to get some privacy. I’m so happy about the results!!!!

Now I’m going to look on some series, good night!!!
