Tuesdays in December?!

Hello all!
Well, this past couple of days has been more stressful for me because I had all of my classes finishing up. This means finals and presentations happening left and right! I have made it through all of them but one. Yesterday was my written Norwegian final. I know that some parts were not very good, but others seemed to go well. I just hope that my grade comes out alright. On Thursday this week, I have my oral part for my Norwegian. I wish that I could talk in front of my friends instead of the teacher and sensor. I always start to get really nervous and make mistakes all the time. Fail. But I can just imagine it is just casual conversation with my classmates again. But once I get done with this, I am officially done with everything related to classes here. All that is left is to wait and see with what I wind up with.

This Saturday I will be hopping on the earliest train from Bø and head to Oslo. In Oslo, I have to purchase my tickets to get to Stockholm to see a family friend. They will not be there until Sunday, so I will be staying on my own the first night. This will truly be my first experience alone. All my other travels have been meeting up with someone I knew. But at least it is only one night and I'm sure everything will go smoothly.

Saturday is also the day that a couple Americans will be flying out. Some of the other international students have already left and headed for home. It is still crazy to think that a whole semester has already flown by. But I am glad that I am making one final trip in Scandinavia before I head back. Hopefully Stockholm this time is more fun than my first time there spending it in the airport.

I don't have any new pictures to put up, but I will take my camera to Stockholm and hopefully get some good ones there. Hope you all have a great rest of the week and I look forward to seeing a lot of you in the next couple weeks!


  1. Julie will be glad you are going to see Kristina and family :)

    You will be fine, you speak english really well!


  2. Good one Mom!

    Hope all your finals and everything turned out ok. We know you will do well! Have a great time in Oslo and Stockholm! Weather Channel talks about the rest of Europe being snowed in, but no mention of Scandinavia - guess it is probably a normal thing 'up north'!

    We are bracing for ice and snow and winds this weekend in WI and the Midwest - be glad you are not flying home this weekend!

    Will be great to see you when you get back stateside! Enjoy your last European weekend! Am so glad you were able to have such a wonderful college international student experience!

    Take care and safe travels.
