Time to reflect

We now write year 2017. Another year went by just as fast as it would take a child to say yes to get free candy for a whole year. It’s crazy. I was looking forward to 2016. Sixteen is my favorite number and I had a feeling 2016 would turn out to be a big year with lots of great things ahead.

Around this time last year, I had no idea I was about to move to London and become a student at SCA. In fact, I never really thought I had the courage to move to another country.
But I could feel that something big would happen – and so it did. In April last year I got the most exciting phone call from THE DEAN at SCA. I got in. Booooom

Now what?! From that day everything changed. I had so many things to sort out. Like how do you rent out a flat, where to store  your belongings that you can’t take with you. What about your pets. Where to live in London (whoa this city is crazy expensive). How can I afford it, buy books from the reading list etc. etc. Plan, plan, plan. Work, work, work. And here I am – sitting in my room in London – just 9 months after I got the phone call from Marc. Reflecting on everything from the feeling of what-is-home to did-I-get-what-I-wanted-out-of-2016? And yes I did. Coming to SCA is most likely the best decision I’ve made so far in my life. Those who know me from before coming here, knew that I wanted big changes in my life. A baby might be the only thing I can think of that would make a bigger change than moving to another country. (And that is not an option) Do you know the basic cost of raising a child in the UK from birth to the age of 21 is £229,251 :O #notachance #dontwanttoliveonpastapestoforever #theyalsotakealotoftime

I’m saying this because having spend nearly three weeks back in Denmark made me realize I’m now caught between two homes. None of them feel like my REAL home. But not in a bad way. I love my life here in London and I love it in Denmark (even though it’s super duper cold 😀 ) Now it’s time to focus on 2017 and set new goals for this even more exciting year. I’m ready and reloaded <3
