• Everything I hoped for and nothing I expected.

  • Be yourself.

  • Let the world change you and you will change the world.

  • Bring your heart with you and focus on where you are.

  • Look at everything as an opportunity to learn and to grow.

  • Smile whenever you can because it makes everyday so much better.

  • This is a journey that will be marked inside of you more than it is on a map.

  • Don't be sad because it's over - be happy because it happened.

  • The saddest words are "it might have been."

  • Be the change you wish to see in the world.

  • You won't be homesick if you are trying to make other people happy.

  • People are just about as happy as they make up their mind to be.

  • Don't waste this opportunity.

  • Have courage.

  • Be yourself because those that mind, don't matter and those that matter, don't mind.

  • Don't procrastinate, you'll miss a lot of good things.

  • Laugh and the world laughs with you.

  • Don't ask what you're eating until it's all the way down.

  • The only thing constant is change. (Einstein)

  • Don't measure you life in how many breaths you take but in how many moments take your breath away.

  • Don't look back and say, "I wish..."

  • This year is too short not to be happy.

  • Don't be afraid to make mistakes.

  • If you are facing a difficult situation, don't give up - you might learn something.

  • Nothing is better or worse - just different.

  • Attitude and perspective are everything.

  • Life is life no matter what country you are in.

  • If you have problems, talk to people - don't go home.

  • We're all looking at the same moon at night.


Away, Away from home I am,
Searching for an awesome time,
Finding ton of friends,
I realize
This was the time of my life.
I am home,
Together with family and friends,
I am sad to find in the end,
Soon I am,
Away, Away from home again.
