Endelig var man ferdig med eksamenstiden, ferdig med intens lesing av kjemi og matte, eller forhåpentligvis i alle fall. Den siste uka før eksamen satt vi uendelig mange timer på biblioteket, jeg satt til og med på en lørdag. Ville vært der på søndag òg, men da var det stengt… Bildet er tatt av Marita mens jeg tok en liten blund pga frustrasjon.
Siden denne bloggen handler mest om ting jeg interesserer meg om skal jeg ikke skrive mer om matte og kjemi eksamen. Bortsett fra at det var noe drit. Vi var ferdige med den siste eksamen onsdag den trettende og var klare for å dra ut å feste lørdag. Hadde et artig mini-vorspiel hos Cathrine før vi dro inn til Tromsø City i tolv tida, what happens in Tromsø stays in Tromsø…
Søndagen etter var det finale i håndball EM mellom Norge og Russland, vi vant!!!! Wooohoooooo!!!!!! LLKM!!!!!
Jeg ser alltid rar ut på bilder jeg tar selv pga at jeg konsentrerer meg så...
Det var godt å komme hjem til Stokmarknes, selv med regnvær fram til den 23.desember og litt panikk med julegaver, aldri overlat innkjøp til brødre for å si det sånn. Men det var godt å se mine tre brødre igjen. Var på en julekonsert i Hadsel kirka natt til lillejulaften, alltid like vakkert. Fikk litt ansvar hjemme, var in charge of baking av fudge og chocolate chip cookies, safe to say: they were excellent.
Christopher, Alexander, Sebastian og mamma på besøk hos mormor og far.
Våknet opp på julaften til masse snø, eller nok til å få julestemning i alle fall. Koselig med familiebesøk, var en tur på Myre, alltid en slager:)
Far, pappa, mormor, Christopher og Alexander(som fikk et mindre latteranfall etter at han prøvde å ta bilde av meg flere ganger, jeg blunket på samtlige...)
Også var vi ute på ”byen” i går til tross for det dårlige været og traff mange gamle venner. Takk og lov for venner med lappen slik at jeg ikke trengte å gå til nesset fra Kari eller fra nesset hjem til meg.
Maren og Åshild.
Og hvis jeg ikke allerede har sagt det: Ha en Happy X-mas and a Merry New Year!
It’s been a while since I updated this site and I’m sure there are some good reasons, but I can’t think of any just yet.
I haven’t been home much though, lot of school and friends and just out. I also work, but only a day a week. I’ve completed one exam and one paper, two exams to go…
And the weather up here is just c***(no foul language on my site, just insinuations), so I’ve not been in a blogging mood. It went from being beautiful with lots of snow, to deadly ice and now it's bare. Kinda sad that it's December already.
So what’s been going on? Hmm, lots really, but my memory keeps on failing me in my old age.
Most Wednesdays a couple of friends and I make dinner together, always a pleasure, lots of fun and just hanging around.
Marita and I have totally messed up our daily rhythm with several nights/mornings of movie marathons and some very late kitchen debacles. One night after we went to the movies with Christoffer we decided that we weren’t tired(this being at ) so we went to her house and then to my place and made pizza, from scratch, it was done around 3 am and then we watched The Incredibles.
Me and Cathrine
And I think that’s were it all started. She went home around and I slept for a maybe two hours before I went into the city to help out with the kids program in our congregation.
I think that’s five weeks ago and I still haven’t gotten myself together. She also told me a really gross story involving store bought bread and a mouse and since then I haven’t been able to eat bread, and everyone knows that a Norwegian without real(emphasize on REAL here people) bread doesn’t work. Ergo, I don’t work.
Kine, Marita and me at Aunegården.
I honestly don’t know where to go on from there, my dad and youngest brother came up north for two days. Sebastian and I went and saw Borat, you really have to be prepared to take everything he says and does in that movie to be a joke. Or else you’re just gonna be angry and offended. And if you take the stuff he says seriously and don’t become offended, there’s something wrong with you and I don’t want you reading my blog.
Every Friday we(Marita, Kine, Cathrine, Renate and I) meet and drink coffee in some café, it’s a great tradition.
Marita also convinced me to watch Saw and Saw 2, they’re kind of the movies I prefer to avoid, but hey, why not? We watched them at her house at night(not that it matters, cuz it’s always dark here) so I did not walk home. No way Josè! She kindly offered me a mattress.
The next day we made peppercakes, I know it’s called gingerbread, but we were tired and it sounded really funny at the time so it stuck with us. We also made, instead of a gingerbread house, a gingerbread tree like the one in New York. It’s Marita’s tradition, at home we usually just make the house, but she has made a fortress and a manger. So I came up with the idea of the WorldTradeTowers, but we settled on the tree. And we didn’t have a plan or anything, so it was all improvised, as everything has been over the last weeks.
Me and Cathrine at Driv all lipglossy
What else? Hmm. Well, our month of staying away from candy or anything even closely related to sugar was over on December 1, so we had ourselves a little party that lasted until the wee hours, not exactly unexpected I guess. We ate so much candy I think I’m actually up for another month off.
My mom made a Christmas calendar for me that my dad brought with him when they visited, so I get little gifts everyday. I love gifts!
I had my philosophy exam three days before the rest of my friends did, I’m always nervous before exams and when they’re orally I’m even more anxious. So I’m really glad Marita didn’t tell me about her dream until after I had taken it. She dreamed that the same morning as my exam she checked this very blog and it said that I was dead. Kinda ominous, just a little freaky...
Me, Cathrine and Marita
Oh, and the day after we handed in our ethics/philosophy paper we went out. First we went to Kine’s apartment and chilled, listened to music and talked, I love small vorspiels, they’re always the best. After a very chatty cab driver let us off in the city we went to Driv, which is were most of the students party in TromsøCity. It was actually quite fun, awful music but good times. The more my friends drank, the more fun for me.
The pictures got kind of scrambled, no particular order, more pictures from the gingerbread baking next time.
Well I guess that’s all for now, I’ve been pretty talkative, kinda unusual for me, I blame the lack of sleep. Anywho, have a great day ya’ll!
Oh, and I don't know why I wrote this in English..
