This day, last year, was full of expectations. I had an amazing adventure ahead of me and I was too excited to think about New Year’s resolutions. I think this might actually have been the first year I didn’t have any and it turned out awesome. My conclusion, resolutions are overrrated.

This day, this year is not as happy. I have two more weeks in San Diego and an amazing vacation on Hawaii waiting, but after that I have no idea what to expect. I know I will do my thesis, but except for that?
I might go to San Luis Obispo, CA next August, but if I get a job at Liseberg I think I might wanna stick with that until October and maybe even the winter season too. And it would be complicated with all my furniture in the apartment I would have to leave. But on the other hand I would have a fantastic experience as an exchange student. We’ll see, I have to wait until January to see if I get accepted first and then I have to deal with the decision.

Anyway, this year has been the best year ever! I’ve met a lot of fun and interesting people from all around the world, I’ve been able to play my favorite sport right at the beach instead of inside, I’ve seen exotic animals, traveled a lot and eaten a lot of good food. But nothing of that would have been possible if it weren’t for my amazing hostfamily. I’ve spent almost a whole year with a family in southern California and that is kinda crazy when I think about it. I left my safety bubble to move in with a family I never met before. But that’s what life is about, you have to take chances, otherwise you’ll never win. And boy, this was a win! I’ve had the best hostfamily ever, the cutest hostkids who I’ve loved like a sister this whole year. I couldn’t have wished for sweeter extra siblings!

I don’t think I can summarize the year better than that, it’s been too eventful (just read all of my 300 posts from this year here on this blog!).
I’m happy and I will always remember how awesome life can be in San Diego, CA.



I’m feeling crappier today than yesterday. I got an anesthetic spray that made my throat better, but it tasted like shit and my nose is still runny and I’m feeling feverish. So I don’t have too high expectations of the rest of this New Years Eve. I know the kids’ cousins are coming later and we’re having a big dinner, but after that I don’t know what’s going to happen. I have an amazing new Abercrombie dress that I want to wear, but where I will wear it I just have to wait and find out. I’m waiting for Chad to tell me where we’re going, if I can go anywhere with this nasty cold.

In Sweden the new year is coming in less than two hours! Happy New Year!!
