Adventurous USA..

Last weekend, I was trapshooting. For me, it was something totally new and special as it is not possible in Germany to shoot any kind of gun so “easily”. Unless you do it illegally but I rather prefer to NOT break the law! 😀

Therefore, it was one of the “must-do” things for me during this semester. And then, last weekend, the day has finally arrived. I was so excited. My head was filled with questions since the day before. Would I dare to do it? Would I be able to handle it? Would it be fun for me?…And now I have the answer: YES!

Really, it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life so far! I had a lot of respect and I was a little nervous but I made it. And I enjoyed it. Not only the ambition and the fun to try to hit this little clay targets but also to hold the responsibility for such a dangerous weapon. It is a huge difference between thinking about holding a gun or really doing it. I cannot remember the last time I was so focused to do everything correct. Not even in any of my exams… 😛

I’m so glad and happy that I have the chance to do so many new and exciting things and to experience so much over here. And I can’t wait for what comes next.Right now, I spend the best time of my life and I enjoy every minute of it. Thanks to everybody who’s involved and also to the ones who encouraged me to go abroad! I will never regret this decision… 🙂

Pictures capture memories..

I love not only the sun but also photography. This picture shows both of them in their purest beauty!

Pictures can tell more than 1000 words and they can catch the most beautiful moments in your life. If you save a memory in a picture, you’re able to remember the feelings and thoughts you had in this special moment again just by looking at the picture. Unfortunately, people cannot experience moments twice, but with pictures you will always remember them.

Developing myself..

I’m already in the States for exactly two months now. Time passes so fast. I can still remember the moment when I stepped into the airplane and I did not know what to expect for the next months. I was so excited about getting to know new people, to study in a different country, to handle everything on my own. But the most interesting and at the same time scariest thing for me was the question:  Will I change? If so, how? In which direction ?

I still don’t know how it will end and how different I will be when I go back to Germany. But I already know that I changed.. It is not only about friends telling me that I talk different and got different opinions about things than I had a couple of months ago. I mention it also by myself. I’ll get more independent with every day, I think more about what I really want and I already strongly improved my time management skills.

I like the feeling of developing myself everyday… 🙂
