100930 – Life, or something just like it.

by Irina Bernebring Journiette

I know I should update more often. But I just can’t seem to find the time. Everything is still so intense that the days just fly by. Tomorrow marks the end of week one in school and I already have tons of homework. Mostly reading and writing, and I really feel that I am improving. But at the same time there’s triathlon, fencing, everyday workout, golf. And then, I want to discover Cali. Tomorrow afternoon we’re leaving for LA and Westwood. Spending two nights discovering Hollywood, the Hills, UCLA and watching college football. And on Monday it starts all over again.
I love it though. I love every morning I wake up, put on a dress, and take the shuttle or walk down to campus in the sunshine. I love finishing swim practice in an outdoor pool watching the red sun set. I love having a movie night with my 31 house mates. I love spending (almost) the entire night discussing life with my wonderful room mate. At this very moment though, I begin to wonder if I might just be dreaming. Could this actually be real? Is this my life? Yes. I love my life and my current reality. Sometime soon, it might be just right around the corner, things are going to change radically again. But for now, I’m going to enjoy every moment of utter bliss.

(This feels like a really tacky post, but hey, maybe that’s what happens when life feels just like pink bubblegum, strawberries, rainbows and sunshine. Without conflict there’s no story, just words. I’m floating on a cloud of smiley faces. This is life, or something just like it. – Don’t worry, I’ll probably be back soon.)
