It’s my last day at Green River Community College today!! So sad!!
I have my dance project, a test on ballet words and a assignment in Total Wellnes class today.
I had a great last weekend here! A trip to Tacoma and saw Sankta Lucia at PLU. And a trip to beautiful Leavenworth! It was so pretty (and cold) there!!
Things are starting to fall into place. I have paid the tuition for Kapi’olani Community College and register for classes. KCC has signed my study assurance and I have send it to CSN. Hopefully I will get my money before Christmas!
I get to stay at CCA for 7 extra days so I don’t have to move out on December 13. It costs 30 dollars/night. It will be so much easier to stay there so I don’t have to think about moving out before the school trip to Whistler.
The housing office in Hawaii emailed me today and said that they are going to process my application next week. Hopefully I will get the apartment that I want!
I still have some things left to do. I have to go to Kent for my social security number application (for my job at GRCC) and I also have to go to the doctor; I need to get MMR and TB-clearance for Hawaii.
I’m excited to go to Hawaii!! But I’m still going to enjoy the few days I have left here at GRCC! Tonight I’m going to an event in school with Lisa Ling as a speaker! Tomorrow I’m going to an event in Tacoma (Lucia) with some other girls from school. And on Saturday I’m going to Leavenworth!
I went to the last European meeting today and one of the girls had made my favorite Swedish Christmas candy!! It’s called Knäck!
Here are some pictures from the concert yesterday.
I’m going to GRCC’s Holiday Concert tonight! My friend is singing in the choir
Btw: I found a picture on Facebook today that really describes what I think about algebra! I’m so happy that I didn’t have math this quarter
I make lists for everything
Here are two lists that might be helpful if you want to live in Campus Corner Apartments.
Things I got from CCA when I moved in:
Pillow, blanket, towel and bedding
Dish soap and a sponge
Fork, knife, spoon, 2 plates, cup, mug, bowl
Some food that you can heat in the microwave
Things I bought:
Lamp for my desk
Comforter and one more pillow
Filter for the water
You also have to buy detergent, hand soap, toilet paper and cleaning products. You should also buy things to the kitchen so you can cook your own food!
I spend Thanksgiving with my roommates. We went to Outlet Collection before Black Friday started and I bought a warm jacket and some other things.
Me and some friends went to Snoqualmie on Friday. It was so pretty there! We went when it was dark so I don’t have any good pictures from there. But you can look at pictures here: http://www.snoqualmiefalls.com/
Had lunch at WildFin in Renton on Saturday. I ate clams for the second time in my life and it was really good!! 👍 We also went to Ikea and I bought some “Swedish festive drink” (Julmust) and thin gingerbread. I always drink Julmust every year for Christmas. It is sooo good! But my American roommate said that it tasted like medicine
We went bowling in Kent on Saturday night and we also went to The Rock in Renton. I had a great time! I will really REALLY miss all the people here! Only one week and one day left for me at Green River Community College!
I have to pay for my housing in Hawaii this week so I can be sure to get the apartment that I want! I am going to live by myself instead of sharing an apartment. The apartment is very close to Waikiki beach! Hopefully I will not feel lonely living by myself, I have kind of get used to living with roommates
Some pictures from my weekend.
Last Tuesday in my Total Wellness class my teacher said that we should really think about what Thanksgiving is all about. Here are the things I’m thankful for:
• My family and friends in Sweden! 180 days until I fly back home to Sweden!
• GRCC! Love everything about the school; the staff, my classes, the people in my club and my teachers!
• All my friends here!! I’m so thankful for all the awesome people I have met since I got here!
• And… Chocolate covered chips!!! I finally got my chocolate covered chips yesterday, I have been waiting my whole life for chocolate covered chips!
I have a test in my Total Wellness class today. I have been awake from 6 a.m and tried to study. I only have one class today and that is also my last class for this week! The classes on Wednesday are cancelled and it’s Thanksgiving on Thursday
It’s going so fast now!! Only a week and a few days left of this quarter! I will really miss GRCC!!
Got my bag yesterday It’s awesome!!
