It’s been a while since I’ve blogged! I have been taking time off from traveling and have stayed in Linz for a few weeks. My body needed a break! My time has been filled with going to class and hanging out with friends here. Unlike the states, where my friends are already on summer break, I will still be in classes till the end of June. I have Thursdays and Fridays off and only a night class on Mondays though so I always have long weekends.
Linz came alive as soon as the flowers bloomed and the air got warmer. There is a sort of beer garden on the campus of my university that is always packed in the afternoons. The spring carnival began, which is is kind of like the Warrenton fair on steroids but no livestock.
There isn’t much happening here that is incredibly exciting but I am still making great memories from the little things. Emily and I had a blast just baking a chocolate cake from scratch. We have danced like idiots to Beyonce in my dorm room with no fear of judgement. We go from being super healthy one day to filling our bellies with Mongolian and taking long naps. We’ve found the cheapest places to buy Heinz ketchup and the biggest pizzas.
We’ve had conversations that make me think about my purpose in live and some conversations that make me laugh so hard that I forget about ever feeling sad. Traveling and seeing new places is amazing, but I think the memories I will carry forever will be the ones I made when things around me weren’t “all that exciting”
