Okay, so first of all; it’s been a really, really messed up week. In some ways you can say my weekend started already on Tuesday, when I was out on a Chinese restaurant with my friends. Had a good time.
Then came the Wednesday, where I was at my friend’s house watching the two latest episodes of Glee, crying my eyes out and yelling at her TV screen.
On Thursday it was May the 17th, which is Norway’s answer to 4th of July. We have a pretty weird celebration of that day here in Norway: We all dress up and hit the town (even the deadbeats who only go out at this particular time of year), where we get on carousels and eat cotton candy and hot dogs and waffles and whatever there is. Also, there are a lot of Norwegian flags. But a day off is always good, no?
That night we headed off to my friend’s place where we were having a blast. Shame we got kicked off to my other friend’s place though, but it didn’t really matter.
The day after we had brunch at my best friend’s grandparents’ place. So delicious!
On Saturday I had the chillest day of the week. I was at my best friend’s house with her and Anna. We were watching The Desert Flower, a couple of Asian movies which we talked through about bad haircuts and Thor. By the way, I hate Thor, as in the character. “Know your place, brother!” Who the hell says that? Not strange Loki went insane.
On Sunday I was watching Glee with Anna, again crying, but not nearly as much as I did the first time I saw those two episodes.
This weekend I’ll be going to Oslo for a shopping spree with my friends.
And now I’m here. It’s a pretty sunny day in my town today, and therefore I was inspired to fill you in on my summer plans:
Plan number 1: Graduate.
– This will go over perfectly for as long as my gymnastic coach realizes what she’s doing and that I’ve actually attended all her classes the past semester. And for as long as I’m not being pulled for a press and photo oral exam.
Plan number 2: I think my friends and I drunkenly agreed on a Glee marathon sometime during our vacation.
Plan number 3: Go to Berlin.
– Staying for two weeks in an apartment we are borrowing from my uncle. We are travelling by car, so we will head off to at least Prague for some certain amount of time during our trip.
Plan number 4: Go to Gothenburg.
– We go there every year, and my brother and I will hit Liseberg like a couple of eight-year-olds like we always do. We have the greatest bonding time during those trips.
Plan number 5: Celebrate my best friend’s 19th birthday!
Plan number 6: Move.
– I will probably go to Stavanger, which is a somewhat bigger town than the one I’m living in now, to study English Language and Literature. Starting to get excited to just get the fuck out of here now.
