Visiting Ogunquit, Maine was an incredible experience. I totally fell in love with the shore and the breaking waves. I was walking along the shore, imagining what my life would look like after graduating from high school. I remember setting a timer that counted the days until prom and it said something like 512 days. Now it is august and I graduated five month ago, I still cannot believe how fast the time passed by.
Two years ago, I was not even sure if I would even graduate. I was afraid of failing and I thought that the Abitur will be the most demanding and difficult accomplishment in life.
Well, absolutely not. I did not study very much for my exams (I don’t even know why), but in the end, it turned out that it was enough. Little effort, good results, happy Sophie.
Unfortunately, I totally messed up my Politics and Economics exam but not because I haven’t studied hard enough, I studied too much. Consequently, less is more!
Three cheers for Minimalism at all points.
Two years ago, I came up with the idea of doing one year of Work & Travel in Australia after graduation. A year ago, I wanted to go to Uni as early a possible and planned to do Solo-Travelling in South East Asia for 10 weeks. Well, now I will do both. Even though I will not be travelling for 12 month, I am pretty happy with my decision.
I wish I could spend at least a month in every country I will visit in South East Asia but hindsight is easier than foresight.
When we booked our flights I thought that two weeks in Malaysia will be sufficient. Today I wish I would leave by the end of august instead of leaving in september.
Nevertheless, seven month are still a long time and I hope that there will still be some time for travelling after uni or between bachelor’s and master’s degree.
However, I am excited as hell. Currently, I am decluttering again and I already put all my belongings into boxes because I will hopefully move out next year. I love my family and friends but I think it is time to go and my journey will be the start of a new phase in my life.
It feels like I am trapped on a starting block. I want to jump into cold water and start swimming immediately, but the referee just says:
„On your marks, get set, get set, get set,…“
I am waiting for the „go“. The „go“ will happen in less than three weeks but I cannot wait anymore.
Oh and I am quite sure that you have already noticed that I have changed my blog theme. Well, this was an accident and now I have to figure out how to get my old design back or look for a new one that really pleases me. Very smart Sophie, very smart.
Never, like never (!!) randomly click on the „Activate new blog theme“ – button.
Actually, I just wanted to have a look at the Live-Demo.
I am counting the cost now.
Anyway, this is my little life update. I hope you enjoy my second Ogunquit photography series.
