One month

I can't believe I've already been here for a month. It feels like ages ago when dad dropped me off at the airport. Feels like I've known Alice, Sean and Siri for my entire life. I feel so comfortable around these people and right now it seems like I could live here forever. I love walking to the bus-stop in the morning, seeing all the squirrels, sometimes a rabbit and just feeling the morning peace. I love living so close to everything, to every bus-stop, to the park, to the train-station, to my friends. I really enjoy coming home everyday and eating dinner with 6 other people around the table. I love movie nights with tea and scones. I feel comfortable here. It's my English home. 

But again, you see those little differences and sometimes you just miss home. You miss knowing everything and everyone around you. You miss understanding every word and every sentence. You miss knowing how the Tv works and where the best walks are. I miss having control, because sometimes I feel like there is no control over what I am doing here. I loose control and I need to sit down for a moment. Alone. I never imagined being so happy here, but I never imagined I would miss those small things that happens at home everyday either. 

I am so grateful that I have this opportunity. I feel so lucky to be around the people I am right now, I am so lucky to know so many amazing students, both foreign and local. I really appreciate being here -

So last night we went bowling and laser questing! It was so fun to be surrounded by friends, both EF's and our new friends from school! Most of my pictures were really blurry, something has happened to my camera, but I got a few good shots.

Emily, Laura, Josefine, Ryan, Alice, me, Sean, Faysul, Tyler, Signe, Yosh, Ben, Siri, Kyle, Rasan and Zoe. 

After the bowling I went with Ben, Tyler, Alice and Kyle to eat pizza and just hang for a bit before we had to go home. Great night!

update time

Long time, no see!!

So much has happened the last two weeks, I don't really know where to begin!!

I think this is the Saturday before school started. I was on the beach with Alice, Siri and Josephine. We had bought cupcakes and macaroons and just talked for a couple of hours. 

Then we started school Monday 8th of September. My subjects are now drama, law, sociology, maths and English. The last two subjects every EF-student has to take, but the 3 first I've chosen myself. I'm really happy with my subjects and I think it will be a really good year. 

Last Sunday there was a festival in town, so me, Alice, Altea and Josephine went there just to see what it was. It was a bit boring, not really my type of festival, with too loud rock-music and way too many people walking around in pirate costumes. But it was alright, and at least we did something that day. 

I haven't really brought my camera around the last week, but I thought maybe I could show you some pictures from my phone instead.

Today I've got so much homework to do, 3 essays for law, a story to write in drama and half a booklet to finish in sociology, so it will be a busy day/week. I know that I won't be doing everything today, luckily most of it due in the end of the week. Tonight a group of people are going bowling, I will bring my camera so I have something interesting to tell you the coming week!


The Trio in Brighton

Hey! The last couple of days I've only had time to kill, so nothing special has happend. On Wednesday though all the students went to the school to pick our subjects and get some information. My subjects for now is history, law, sociology and drama. We also have to have math and english, and if I'm lucky we might have spanish as well so I don't have to take my exams at home. The school is huge, so the first couple of days might be a bit confusing for everyone, but we'll figure it out. We start on Monday and I'm actually really excited. 

Today I went to Brighton with Sean and Siri. We did some shopping and ate on this fancy café were you could take cooking classes and it was inspired by Jamie Oliver(or something like that). The weather was just all grey, but not cold or rainy. We stayed in most of the day though in Churchill Shoppingcenter. Wow, I already love it. It has shops like Hollister, Zara, Pull&Bear, Berhska, Urban Outfitters and Aldo. I ended up with a new pair of Converse and a really soft  hoodie from Hollister. 

Sean and Siri on the beach

My toast - so yummy!!!

I just had to post this picture of me and Sean! We were on the train and Siri was exploring my camera and took this. It's just so funny, our faces are ridiculous!!

Now it's almost time for dinner and then I guess me and Alice are watching another movie, maybe go to Tesco and get some sweets - hope you're all good at home!!



Hello! This day is so chill. Me and Alice have done nothing except we went to Hampden Park for an hour. It's such a  beautiful park with this little pond filled with ducks, swans, seagels and goose. We also went to Tesco to buy some stuff that we needed and went to a little library, just to check it out. These days have been very lazy, mostly because both of us are so tired all the time. It's hard to turn your mind around, everything is new and you start to notice the difference between here and back home. But Diane has told us to just relax before school starts and if we are tired we can just go upstairs to sleep. 

I brought my camera to the park, just to show you my surroundings. Alice and I figured that we needed our own little place in the park, so that was the goal of today. We found one, under a big tree. The entire park is fillled with birds and squirrels, so we really enjoyed it there. 

Favorite chocolate ♥♥♥

It's so beautiful here!! 

Now I'm gonna skype with Sunniva, and then we will see that else we will do today!

New clothes

Today me and Alice went into town for the first time! We took the bus with another girl living in our house, Chi, and she showed us the bus-stop, where to get off and where to get back on again. I did a little(a lot) shopping and we also bought hangers and a bag to put our laundery in. It seemed like most of the exchangestudents were shopping today, because at the end of the day most of us sat in the Arndale shoppingcenter and chatted. We had arranged to meet up with Sean and Siri, so it has been the four of us together all day. Sean showed us the train on our way home and we live so close to both the bus-stop and the trainstation. There will probably be a lot of traintrips to both London and Brighton through the year. And since I forgot my camera, I don't have any pictures from today. But I took pictures of what I bought instead. It's good to have some new clothes when school starts.
