Today for the first time in ages, I laughed out loud and even snorted in the process. I have talked about really personal stuff openly and made a great friend, that in this foreign country I actually feel connected to and I can relate to. I watched a play, The Importance of Being Earnest, and had such an incredible time.
I am now laying in bed thinking why I hadn’t initiated this friendship earlier, why I hadn’t attended more plays or more events organised by my tiny campus. It is undeniably upsetting that I left it so late. But hey, better late than never, right?
Maybe life works that way and maybe that’s why days like these are so memorable. Today, for the first time in ages I felt alive. I am so grateful and so happy, and I would just like anyone that reads this to appreciate the little moments. To look in between the lines. To go to the events organised in your home towns. To participate in the little things. And above all, to live.
Lots of love.
