I miss last semester so much. My friends, my classes, my travels, the weather, everything. This semester is just really not as good. I don't have a group of which I feel a part, my classes suck, and it's just cold and miserable while everyone at home is enjoying the beach. My travels are good, but with no income I'm starting to feel guilty about travelling at all, knowing I'll have zero money when I get home. There have been some really good moments this semester, but I just miss my little gang from last semester so, so much.
I always knew it was going to be different this semester. No Laura, no Ragne, no Grant, no Devin. No afternoons on the Neckarwiese (even if it was raining that one time ;), no midnight trips to 683 because we felt like watching a movie, and a lot fewer spontaneous travels. I feel like I wasted last semester a bit, took for granted that I had people to do things with, and spent too much time out here, instead of in the town, or even just outside.
This is not meant to be a pity party. I am still grateful that I have the opportunity to be over here, and as I said, I have had some fun times. From now on, all but two weekends are booked (with a tentative idea for one of them), and I will have an almost constant stream of visitors from NYE until February 14th. I just wish this semester could've been as fun-filled as last. But soon I will be home, and then ALL the semesters will be fun :D
