A 180° Change

Twenty days ago I was celebrating New Year’s Eve almost 10.000 miles away from where I am now writing. We were toasting with my family and friends for our good summer and the incredible 110°F we had at that time, planning a trip to the beach for a week and other usual summer activities. I mean, I had to enjoy as much as I could, my summer was only going to last 10 days.

I must say back then I was complaining on the Heat Wave we were suffering, but, as long as I had a swimming pool or the seaside nearby it was good. Now, with -15°F I can’t help regretting all those wishes against weather being that warm.

But this whole change was not all about going from a super hot summer to a freezing winter, that is a small part of it. I also changed my holidays back home to study and work in a foreign country with a pretty different culture. This I think, is the most important part of the change. The one that I am still getting to understand and explore.

The best is still to come. As I heard in a song:

I can’t tell where the journey will end, but I know where to start
