Germany was fun, and I will miss things about it, some little and some big, but mostly I am thankful to be home. To be in a room where there is no light coming through the foiled over windows. I will miss saving the butterflies that got trapped in the house, but am glad to be encased in a room that is dim and smells sweet and sour all at once. I will miss the freedom of smoking everywhere but welcome the ability to buy cloves.
I saved three butterflies while I was there and killed one bee. It was overall fun and happy, and there were some dark undertones.
It made me take a look at myself and be ok with the fact that I am 18 and this is my life, even for that short while.
