“Once in a lifetime means there’s no second chance.”-High School Musical 2

It has been well over a year, and yet, I relive it every day as if it was yesterday. Nowhere else have I found the perfect combination of classes, culture, and technology. As I sit here trying to concentrate on my reading, all I can think about is going back to the place of my dreams. Whether it was walking to the beach, going to the English movie theater, visiting the gorgeous musical fountains of Mont Juic, or just strolling down a few streets to Placa Catalunya or even to El Mercado… every moment was magical, and it still is… every day. It’s an experience that taught me so much, but more than anything, it taught me to enjoy every second of life and live in the present- to cherish that moment, because regardless of however many great moments I will encounter in the future (and I am very much looking forward to those), I can never get this one back, if I miss it- and I am glad that I didn’t miss a single moment of my adventure.

Sometimes, I wonder what I am doing in this college. I love the education I am receiving here, but the stress sometimes seems to overpower the simpler, more important things in life. Back in Barcelona, it wasn’t the case. Here, there is so much drama and debate surrounding personal relationships, student organizations, and college politics. There, there is none of the nonsensical business- just a community that bonds and holds that unity with such value that it allows the people to get through any possible problems that come up.Every day since I left… and every day until I go back… I will keep on dreaming of the time of my life.

_I’ve been waiting for my dreams

To turn into something

I could believe in

And looking for that

Magic rainbow

On the horizon

I couldn’t see it

Until I let go

Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn

Now I’m coming alive

Body and soul

And feelin’ my world start to turn_

_And I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time

To be more than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life_

_Holding onto things that vanished

Into the air

Left me in pieces

But now I’m rising from the ashes

Finding my wings

And all that I needed

Was there all along

Within my reach

As close as the beat of my heart_

_So I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time to be

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life_

_And I’m out on the edge of forever

Ready to run

I’m keeping my feet on the ground

My arms open wide

My face to the sun_

_I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time to be

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know

This is the time

This is the time of my life.

This is the time of my life._
