18th June/10th September: Flight ticket booked

A few days ago I payed my ticket home to Sweden. There are two important things about the ticket I feel I should share with you. Firstly, the date for my return is 18th June, which means that I’ll be back in Sweden the 19th; next Friday in other words. Until then, I’ll be very busy finishing my courses, as well as preparing for my return to Sweden.

Secondly, the ticket isn’t one way. On 10th September, I’ll yet again board a plane to take me back to Taiwan for continued Chinese studies at National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei. Although I’ve already decided to go back, paying the ticket is a lot more final than writing a post on this website. I’m looking forward to next semester, hoping that I’ll have a chance to improve my Chinese as much as I have this my first year in Taiwan.

Before the summer is over though, I hope to be able to enjoy Sweden and all the things I miss there (most prominently family and friends, but weather and language should also be mentioned). I have a little less that three months at my disposal and lots of things I want to do. Right now, it seems likely that I’ll work in August, but apart from that I’m also going to wrap up a couple of writing projects (Magneter och mirakel and possibly my novel, along with some smaller collaborative projects in Kaleidoskop‘s pipeline).

It’s not next Thursday yet, though, which means I should get started with some of the things I mentioned above. See you soon!
