Lately

There's been a lot going on these last weeks. There has been a lot of good moments, new friends and old ones. Before the holiday I spent a couple of days in a monastery near the french border on a retreat with school. It was interesting to see how the monks live, we even talked to one who had been living there for 63 years! The two weeks now have been easter holiday, so no school. I spent a calm day in Brussels, and one in Lille, which I had never been to before. We went to the zoo and explored the center, it seemed like a really nice city. We also went to Walibi (an amusement park next to Brussels) for a day and I concurred my fear of the rocket attraction (the one that goes up slowly and then drops the seats like a freefall) and noticed that I didn't die after all, so I wanted to do it again.

Last friday my best friend from Finland came to visit me for five days, and we tried our best to profit the time she spent here. We went out in the capital, did a day trip to the seaside and bruges, had a shopping day in Antwerp (which was plain torture for me as I couldn't buy anything) and spent a relaxed day in Liege. The rest two days we spent with my family and just updating each other about everything that's happened during there seven months. On thursday this week, we took her to the airport early in the morning (woke up at 4), and afterwards I stayed in Brussels with Greg, but the only thing we managed to do after three nights of almost no sleep was to go to a sushi buffet and eat so much we couldn't walk for a while. 

On friday I went to a dubstep party with Sophie (my sister) and Christelle. It was awesome and my feet still hurt for all the dancing and jumping. The rest of the weekend I've just spent home relaxing and studying my courses to Finland. I'm too lazy to write a separate post about everything even though I probably should, so I'll just throw in all the photos.

I don't know how you do it, but you're my hero.
