imageI’ve been thinking a lot these last few hours on what to write.

These last few months have sure been an eye opener to me. From having classes to taking walks along Šešupė lake, it has been an interesting journey so far. For example, there have been multiple events at the gymnasium. Teacher’s day, school’s birthday, Halloween, and today it’s tolerance day. In all the schools I’ve been to in my life, no school has ever celebrated as much as Suduvos gimnazija. Students and teachers enjoy the festivities and are creative with dances and decorations. Danish schools certainly could learn something from them. Else I have had the pleasure of having my family visit me for a few days. They also enjoyed Marijampole, and were happy to be here. Together we travelled to Kaunas and Vilnius where we were tourists for a few days. As the months fly by, so does the daylight get smaller, and I can feel it affecting my mood lately. I have been self-reflecting, thinking about what I’m feeling, although it’s hard to find an answer. Am I lonely? Am I happy? Does my work even matter?  All these questions I constantly think about and honestly, I have no clear answer. I’m happy people have started being more social with me, as I’m a very outgoing person who loves to talk and listen to them. Else I have just been relaxing in the city. Taken pictures, been to the cinema or just taking walks in the different parks in Marijampole.

Signing off for now.
