Okay so my friend, Marte, wanted me to have a Q and A session, so this is YOUR CHANCE to ask me anything in the comments, and I'll try my best to reply! Perfect time to get to know me a bit better, eh?

Here are some pictures from the past days:

This is me and Grace looking fab as always!

So, peoplee, ask me fun questions :)))


The Autumn holidays are over (or fall break, as they so badly insist on calling it here) and I'm back for my second term of school. With a second term comes new classes, and now my schedule looks a bit like this: In my first block, I have Diff Sociology, second is Advanced Algebra (yes, I'm barely hanging in there), third is Interior Design, which I already love! And last, but not least, Relationships, which seems like a fairly easy class. I also have a bit more homework this term, buuut hopefully I'll survive until the Christmas holidays! I'm also a bit sad that the first term is over, because my fourth block class was too much fun, and I had first lunch, and now I have third which is resulting in me starving all through third block! It also means that 1/4 of my time at Southwest is done, and that is completely not okay because I love Southwest and I'm not ready to start my second term and I just want it to go on forever and ever and never leave cause ILY HAWKS <3<3<3<3
(Ew, I hate the lack of punctuation and spelling errors.)

I mean, just look at this beauty!

Moving on, over the holidays I went to a one year old's pyjama birthday party. They had pancakes and cake, guess who was excited?!?!! I also went to Omaha to go shopping with three other exchange students! I got to buy some Christmas presents, aaand I may have gotten a new pair of shoes (or two..) On the way to Omaha, we stopped at a plane museum thingy, and I like museums, don't get me wrong, but this was just not interesting. At all... Anyway, Kenzie, Haiden (Kenzie's friend) and I went to the park, and I wore shorts cause it was sunny and hot and almost like Summer.I also ran my first and last XC meet at Pioneers Park, and guess what, I didn't die! And it was so much fun, and the fact that Cross Country season is already over makes me sad and lost, because all of a suddenly I've got all this free time, and I don't know what to do with it. Hmu if you want to hang out!!!!

Hey there, random dog


Hello there, Internet best friends! I am going to write all of my blog posts in English from now on, since English is a beautiful language and I somehow am able to express myself better by using it. Go figure...

It's starting to get really cold outside now. It has been this weekend, anyways. And there has been some crazy thunderstorms going on, and I think this might have been the first time I've actually been freaked out by the weather. There hasn't been a lot going on lately, I've pretty much spent this entire weekend in my pyjama trousers and my Harvard hoodie. And if you know me, I never wear either. I did go to the Cross Country City Championship to see my team run though! And it was fantastic and awesome and amazing and lovely and all the other good words. Both the XC boys and girls won the City Champions titles, and after everything was over, we went out to eat pizza together!

Here is the lovely team!

Today, we went to church, and all I could think about in that hour and fifteen minutes was "this is weird", "I feel lost", "what am I even doing here?" etc... Being a non-religious person surrounded by religious people is weird, and completely different from what I am used to. In times like these though, it is important to remember to respect each other for our believes, or our non-believes or whatever. Imagine how much easier things would be if everyone could just face the fact that there are people with different religions, and there are people who doesn't find it necessary to have a one.

Moving on, I found myself listening to Chritmas music whilst making Christmas cards the other day. And I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am for Christmas! It's definitely my favourite holiday of the year! I should also be hitting some shops pretty soon, so that I can send some lovely Chtistmas presents home to Norway. Also, finals week is coming up, and I don't know what to expect, so I'm just staying calm until further directions are given. Oh, and I've also got my complete schedule for the next three terms. I would take a picture, but I don't know where it is.

I should also mention that I'm really starting to love it here. School is fantastic, sdub ily for ever and ever! People here are the kindest, and the city is so lovely. You know when you go to a place for the first time, and you can't stop staring out the window of the car, wondering how it's going to be and who you're going to meet. Or when you go for a walk in the neighbourhood, and keep staring up at the sky and you feel as if you belong. And then you fall in love with the place, like the place is a person, and everything is beautiful and nothing hurts. I'm not homesick at all anymore, but don't worry, that does not mean that I've stopped missing you guys. I should probably end this post, because my hands are so cold. Also, I must apologise for the lack of photographs in this post. I just hate taking pictures....
