A Rainy Day in Bø

Let's see here. It has been four days since I have had class and I still have tomorrow off. My schedule in Norway seems like the opposite that I had at Luther since I only have classes on Thursdays and Fridays (plus the occasional Tuesday). I like having all this free time, but hopefully I will be able to find something to do next week because I don't know how long I will be able to have nothing to do. Hopefully in a couple weeks, I will be able to take the train to Bergen and see Nana (my Norwegian tutor from freshman year) and some sites too. I also want to get to go site seeing in Oslo too.

I talked to home today and mom seemed pretty good. She had surgery yesterday to help her wrist and I hope that this helps and heals fast. She just has something that looks like a cast which isn't too bad in my opinion. However, I am not the one who has to wear it 27/7. Another thing that is going on at home is the students are starting to move back to Luther. I kinda wish that I was in the same boat as them, but I am glad that I am taking this opportunity to see what it is like to study in another country while I still can. The training at the Technology Helpdesk started today too. I think that might be one of the things that I will be missing the most for the next four months.

My grocery shelf is finally getting some stock in it. I went to the store again today and got some more milk, pasta, peanuts, peanut butter, and bread. I made pasta topped with cheese again for supper and also had some extremely tasty corn. Yum! O yea, I almost forgot that I bought another jumbo sized Firkløver chocolate bar (200grams). Dr. Stokker, my Norwegian professor at Luther, brought us some of these to try last year. They are really good and who doesn't like chocolate with hazelnuts anyway? I was glad that I made it back between breaks in the rain. It has been raining pretty much every day for the past five, maybe? Nobody ever told me that Norway had a rainy season!
