It seems to be a thing that nothing good ever happens in January, which is why we should really just open the new year with February. Which isn't really entirely true. But it's also not entirely untrue...
So, January has obviously been an interesting combination of recovering from the New Years slump and watching the world around us go absolutely barking mental. And yes, before you ask, it was tricky to find a family friendly word to go before “mental”. Language sure is tricky.
The new year for me started back in Germany, with my friends and family. It was hard to say goodbye to everybody again, but I knew that in Estonia adventure was waiting for me, as it always does.
My plan for the new year - or new decade! - is to go out of my comfort zone (even) more. And I would say I did quite a good job already this month…
What a month! A year couldn’t start better!
I collected lots of different experiences and had many adventures, especially in my midterm meeting in the middle of nowhere. From experiencing the pure cold, even though we still don’t have snow, to some exhausting activities. This was all part of my january. But, to avoid confusion, let‘s start from the beginning.
Christmas time is always exciting... winter finally came and people all around can breath icy baltic air. Yeah, even though I was never a huge fan of snow (probably because in my home we had more than enough of it every single year), it gives me goosebumps, how beautiful can snowy Estonian forests be. Probably most of us have this childish joy and warmness when christmas is coming and the first of December is in the front door. You can start tasting it slowly, like wine..
Great music, that gives me such feelings, and I’m listening to right now, Mozart - piano sonata n.11 Andante grazioso. It starts slowly and tenderly, it gives that feeling of first fluffy snow falling.
December really flew by. It was by far the busiest month I’ve had so far in the youth centre. And I wasn’t even in Estonia for half of the month because I flew home for Christmas.
But let’s start from the beginning. On the first of December it snowed! I was listening to christmas music in m apartment watching the snow falling down outside. Is there a better way to start of a month?
