mr.weatherman is rather confused and our seasons are a little backwards here on the bodensee.Â gone are the days when we’d sit out on our balconies in shorts and tank top working on homework and hopefully taking in some sun.Â now we sit inside and watch the snow fall — such big flakes and coming down so quickly.Â it’s beautiful right now to look outside and see, but it messes a bit with my head.Â i woke up this morning and wanted to sing christmas songs.
the mumsieÂ and the daddy left this morning.Â i stood by the door and waved as they drove away.Â they left me and that’s never happened before.Â i’ve always left them and that’s how it’s suppose to work.Â it made me feel rather strange to experience this.Â
i had a wonderful time with them though and i’m so thankful for the fact that they were able to come over at all.Â austria is beautiful and salzburg and vienna are now two of my favorite places.Â our days were filled with mozart dinners and viennese concerts, palaces and old forts, shopping and lots of food.Â but the best was that i had so many days with my parents.
thank you all for the birthday wishes.Â i’m nineteen now and it doesn’t sound all that old anymore.
a few more days and school will be over and more people will leave me while i stand by the door and wave goodbye.Â Â more change… but i’m learning to accept change as it comes.Â it’s not always bad.Â this change will be difficult.Â oh, i’ll finally be able to watch movies,Â have my lights out as late as i want, and be as lazy as i wish, but the school won’t be filled with all the people that are so dear to me here.
