I can't believe how it can only be one week til I leave. ONE DAMN WEEK! It still seems so unreal and so far away. But it's not. I have barely even started thinking about packing. I've only just figured out which pair of shoes that will join me. It's all crazy crazy crazy. The last couple of weeks I've been trying to spend as much time as possible with family and friends. Been working a lot though and Grey's Anatomy has caught up a lot of my time, but still. It's been more than a month since my last post. I've been in Denmark twice visting my family, I've been with my best friend in the entire world who is now halfway across the world. I've travelled to Turkey with my mum, my brothers and her boyfriend. I think that I've spent my last month pretty good. And so I will do with my last week home. 

The beach in Turkey

Out with Vemund and Sandra

Me and my dog Felix in Denmark

The last couple of nights I've been skyping with my best friend, Linn(Veronica, I don't know what you prefer haha). She's in America and I feel so lonley. She starts school tomorrow and is freaking 8 hours away, living with her host family in Idaho. So yeah, if you read this I MISS YOU (you already knew that)! 

ANYWAYS! I recived my flight tickets two days ago and 1.10PM I will leave Norway, but my journey starts already at 8.55 when I take off from our airport in Kristiansand. My dad will be there with my other best friend Sandra and say goodbye and cry and stuff like that. It's all so bittersweet. That's a perfect description of being an exchangestudent. Bittersweet. Because it is all so exciting, new, special and you're a butterflywreck. But on the other hand it sucks really much to know that you will be away from your family, your friends, all the social things that you've finally become a part of. But it will all be there when I come back. So bittersweet. 

I think I should finish up now and do something else, like go to work or clean my room or something like that... So I will do that - keep posted!!

44 days to go

I can't belive that I only have 44 days left in Norway. With all my friends, my family, my room, my dog. It didn't become reality before a week ago when I got my host family. For ten months I will live on 35 Glynde Avenue, Eastbourne. 12 km from my school, Hailsham Community College. I'm going to live with another EF student, 3 dogs, 6 cats, hamsters and chinchillas. I'll have a hostmother, a hostfather and a hostbrother. 44 days. Doesn't seem that long ago I had more than 100 days left. 

Eastbourne is so close to France I figured. I've always known kind of where it is in England, but I've figured out that by car it takes one and a half hour to get to London. It has a lot of coast and beaches as you can see in the picture. It still seems so unreal!

This is a part of my school, I think it is the sportshall. 

I've tried contacting my host family and my IEC, but none of them has responded to my emails. Frustration, you can imagine. But I just emailed my RC, Guilia, so hopefully she will respond soon. 
I just needed to let some thought out, and this is the first post on my blog as an exchange student. I will write something later about myself, the packing and stuff like that. I will do my best to update you on my new life.
