yellow,

do you ever come upon a song, and it feels like it’s your song?

not like you wrote it or anything, but when you hear it, for the very first time, and this very first tone captures your soul, that’s when you know.
i remember coming home from lake ontario, mom was driving, amya, kayla and i where putting our heads out the windows, looking at the stars. it was so special. spring break, upsate new york, it was finally getting a little bit warmer and it was dark, and quiet. the atmosphere was just priceless, unique and almost a little to perfect to be reality. and then it happened – yellow came one, and i immediately knew, i felt it inside of me, i knew this was it, my song. so thank you coldplay for creating this emotional song, and thank you amya for introducing me to it. i believe in miracles yet i do believe that everything happens for a reason, so yes, yellow came into my life fjust at the righ time. i will forever cheerish it, when i listen to it, i cannot ever unhear it, it will forever be a part of me. so please, take time, and listen to a song, and i don’t mean just be there listening to the radio. actually listen – listen to the words, the voices, the instruments, the pauses. i hope everyone will find their song someday, i know that i have found mine.

i have been struggling with anxiety lately, trying to figure out who i want to be, and i am glad to know that i have a couple of amazing friends who are there for me and help me through everything i am going. i am becoming happier everday, and i came to the conclusion that the most important part is to experiement. try new stuff sometimes! i stated to do yoga, i tell myself to take care of things and i try to enjoy the little things in life like a cup of tea in the morning, a nice evening walk with my dog or alone time with a good book. i am not quite sure where this blogpost is going, it is saturday. 11:42pm and i am thankful, for being healthy and for having a great life. so yeah i guess i am a really positive human being, trying to spread some happiness, or at least spreading my thoughts which are bright.

i hope you are having a great day,
wherever you are at the moment. take care of yourself, i will be here if you need anything.
xx larissa

I am back in Austria

Hi y’all…

A lot happened since I have been on here last, and well there were reasons I wasn’t blogging. I changed host families, I got injured, I went to Hawaii, I went trhough heartbreaks and I had the best ending to my exchange year that I could have imagined. So from now on I will try to blog more regularly, but no promises. I am sorry for everyone hwo was waiting for new entries, I just couldn’t bring myself to write!

Β» Happy New Year Β«

hello world,

it is January 2nd, 2017 and I am just sitting in bed, as always.
Tomorrow – 1/3/2017 – I will audition for the school’s musical, tomorrow is also the first day of school after break and I cannot wait to get back, because I really miss having basketball practice and seeing my friends every day.

But now back to New Years Eve, because I expierenced my very first NYE abroad with my favorite people – a bunch of great friends.
At 6pm I facetimed my family back in Austria and celebrated the new year with them, at 7pm I left to go Amya’s house where we just danced and sung, ate pizza, took pictures and believe it or not but one of my dreams came true that night: I learned how to play the Ukulele, some of you may not believe this but by the end of the night I played songs by myself.
My NYE was a success, I had such a great time and here are some pictures:

Β» MERRY CHRISTMAS Β«

hello world,

Christmas in the United States is big(er) – loads of decorations, lights, candy, presents, people in costumes and of course happy peeps!

This December has made many memories: I got First Honors, which means I have very good grades in school, I sat on Santa’s lap, I dressed up and volunteered at a christmas festival, I had some great basketball games, I frosted tons of cookies and went caroling, even though I didn’t know the songs and was freezing to death, I had a christmas party with me exchane student fellas, had a great holiday concert with senior high chorus, had a christmas movie marathon at a friends house, took family pictures and took some more family pictures with my best friends, celebrated my first chrismas in the US and there is still 4 days to go…

but here are some pictures, enjoy:
