    Life... One word - an ocean of different meanings and associations.

    First, before you read this (if anyone actually does read it) you should know that there is no actual purpose behind this post. Just me rambling about my innermost thoughts, reflections and worries. In fact, I don't even know why I am writing this - let alone sharing it on the World Wide Web for everyone to see. I guess, I just needed to get a few things off my mind. So here it goes:

    It is currently Summer Holidays in Denmark - as well as loads of other places around the world, To many people it's just another Summer Holiday. Another vacation. Time off from school and work, time to go on adventurous trips, getting a tan on while lying on a dreamy beach, drinking cocktails and looking at handsome guys. Or maybe just some time off to get the things done, you wouldn't normally get done in the busy every day life. But to me, this Summer Holiday is different, To me, this Holiday marks the beginning of the end.
    - that sounded a little dramatic, but it is really not. In a few weeks time, I am emerging my senior year in college. It sounds so crazy to me, as I never even contemplated on attending College in the first place. I have always known what I wanted to be when I grew up, and since the education doesn't require a college degree I never really thought about the opportunities made available because of that.

    Lately, I have come to notice that life has been passing me by at a thousand miles per hour for quite some time. The past two years has been... a change - to say the least. A lot of things has happened throughout the years that has gone by - some of which I had gladly been without! But also some, that I would have wished I had enjoyed more instead of just letting those precious moments pass me by.

    Sitting in my bed this Tuesday night, I was hit by a sudden realization that I am entering a new phase in my life. Soon I will begin my "real" education - soon I will begin living the life that I have dreamed of for so long. It all sounds great, but I can't help but feeling a little sad for all the moments that passed me by without me noticing and giving the moment my full attention. But I guess that is life. Memories come and go - new memories replace the old once. New adventures seem greater than the once experienced just seconds before.

    My wish for this next (and last school year) is that I will remember to enjoy more of it. Remember to cherish those little moments - remember to appreciate the absolutely amazing people that I surround myself with every day and let them know that their loving personalities and happy faces makes such a huge impact on me. I wish to make memories that will last forever. I want to look back on this upcoming year as the year of my life. A year remembered as a year full of passion, love, laughter, craziness, smiles and good memories.
    As sad as I am leaving behind old memories and the past few years, I am more than happy and utterly excited to see what the next year brings.
