As I’ve already said, I am pretty americanized. This is my life now.
The city, what I do, and don’t forget the people I’m with…the splendid people in Sunset CT. As this post mostly will be about them (I might mention me having birthday too, might), I find it at its place to write in English. Just to show them all how much I appreciate them. Some of them actually do read my blog regulary. But we all know what happands when using google translate… the writing will make me seem like a severn yearold kid. Well, I can’t promise this will be better, but it’s worth a try.
So… I AM 20 YEARS OLD now. My day was mostley the same as usual(cleaning house, doing laundry, a walk, ballett) except from that I was partly still sick and that it was raining. But then, at 8 o’clock I dressed up more than nessesary and went over to my neighbors…. And there I was welcomed with Champagne, cake and Norwegian music… Can you imagine a better way to celebrat your 20th birthday? To me it was perfect. Then followed talking, eating, dancing, for the next 7 hours.
I am just SO lucky ending up living in McClureStreet, which is the closest you come to the university campus. I’m trying to imagine how it would be living outside the city. It would be so much harder getting to know people. My stay would be pretty different. It’s been just great having my people across the street to go over to whenever. And also, I’m very thankful to them for letting me come. I mean, they are students, they are busy, they have eachother…they didn’t really needed another person in that small living room and populare house… but still they let me come. That feels really good.
I’ve learned one very important thing this month. Not everyone who smokes weed are stupid, and not everyone who doesn’t smoke weed are not stupid(Well, I know that already, but still, an important part of it). Being together with people who are not really the type I would hang out with back home, has opened my mind in a way that feels good. Now as I’m leaving I actually feel sad. I didn’t thought I would be, but I am. I am so sad. Knowing that I probably wont see them again…at least not before we’re all grownup and have money to just jump on a plane. So I’m sad…but in fact it feels good. Im glad that I’m able to feel sad because I’m leaving someone and something. It’s a good thing being able to miss someone.
