A Little Recap

I haven’t really updated what’s been going on in my life over the last few weeks, so here’s a little review on my progress, that I wrote in my journal a few days ago. 

What I’ve come to realise while browsing through my journal entries and trying to figure out when I wrote what (I should note the dates from now on), is that I’ve made huge progress. I mean not just a little bit, but HUGE progress. I guess it’s to do with the fact that I’ve been really busy over the last few weeks because uni started and I’ve been working with the new company twice a week now, for about 3 or 4 weeks already (how quickly time passes!).

I’ve developed more of a daily routine, I got used to life in Germany again, without even noticing it consciously, and I’m feeling more settled.

I still don’t know where the journey is going, but I’ve had new ideas, like not doing the master’s degree right away starting next year, but instead taking a longer break and applying for a voluntary project in another country (preferably in the cultural sector).

I remember the lyrics of certain songs that bring me back to reality.

Only Time will Tell

In Time

How fragile things are.

You don’t expect them to break

Until they do.

I didn’t see it coming

But now it makes sense.

Some things will leave you

And some things will stay.

I wanted to keep you

But only

Time will tell.

Have patience w…

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.
…live in the question.”

Beautiful quote by Rainer Maria Rilke, taken from Letters to a Young Poet.

It gives me hope that one day, maybe, everything will make more sense. With just a little more patience.
