Back to "School"

August 16, 2010

I received a letter with the dates for when I start my second year at uni in England. I can’t wait to go back home and stress about all of the assignments I have to get done. I haven’t had any work this summer and it has been really tough due to death in the family and other things that have made this summer….memorable?

I am really looking forward to leaving Sweden, but not leaving my family. I miss my friends in England, I miss my life in England, I miss speaking English the entire time, I miss the football commentators on telly…waaaaay more enthusiastic than the Swedish ones.

The joy I felt when I received the letter was huge. At the same time it made me think…ever since I left my home town after my upper secondary school graduation…I have never stayed in one place for this long….I can’t believe I am staring my second year and actually not having any plans on leaving for my next destination.

Oh and….the reason why I wrote “school” is because I kept getting corrected when I referred to my university as a school my first year in England. It is an institute of higher learning…school’s for kids…
