I’ve got a thing for American college campuses. Every time I visit a new city one of the first things I check on the map is if it has a great campus to walk around. I’m not sure if it’s because they remind me so much the first time I came to the States and all the great experiences I had during those four months of my life, or just because they are beautiful places in general.
Often times I found myself thinking about how different my life would have been if I didn’t chose to do my exchange program here a couple years ago – where would I be right now? With who? Would my dreams be the same? It’s crazy how little decisions can change the course of our lives and turn our world upside down when we less expect it.
Living in the States with an American boyfriend was certainly not in my life plans; and if somebody would have asked me to guess my future some years ago I would probably have come up with a million things except that one. I guess that’s one of the reasons why life is so exciting – you never know what’s next to come! You can have an endless list of future plans and guess as much as you want, but the truth is that nobody assures you that things will go the way you imagined… and sometimes that’s for good.
I can’t believe it took me so long to visit UCLA campus, it’s gorgeous. We laid down on the grass for a while and admired the beautiful library buildings that were right next to us. I love that the campus has a lot of green space, definitely a perfect place to sit under a palm with a great book in your hands.
Have a great day!
