I was studying for my midterm last night and I didn’t want to cook food, so I ordered sushi from our sushi place. I will really miss the sushi when I go back to Sweden! It’s sooooo good!
I have 3 classes today and now I’m waiting for my first one: dance class. My midterm is at 4.45 pm. I hope I will do well!
Some thoughts about my study abroad year. I don’t regret it at all! Even if I felt a bit homesick yesterday. Study abroad has always been my dream and I’m very happy that I got the opportunity to do it. Thanks to my family and friends that helped me and made it possible for me to come here ❤️😊
If you want to study abroad, here are some links that might help you:
Gap Year USA
Green River International
There are also a lot of other options to choose from, this is just the links to the program that I’m enrolled in.
Finally!! I got the money from my checks into my account today! I went to the postoffice and I sent the checks to my bank
The critique in photo class yesterday went well, I hope! I found out that we are going to have a midterm tomorrow in that class! So I know what I will be doing today and tonight.. Study!
I skyped with my dad and my mum this morning, so I’m not so homesick anymore And I only have one more day in school this week and on Friday I’m going on a circle island tour
I have always been honest on this blog and I will keep on being that. I have been missing home for a couple of days now. Don’t know why, but I just do. I have been away from home for 173 days now. But I’m staying busy with school stuff and my friends and hope that I will feel better tomorrow! And it’s only 2 more weeks until I get a visitor from Sweden
Some positive news as well: I got an A on my assignment in jewelry class! I made a bracelet and the teacher said that she is going to use my bracelet for a student show!
I also went to my second yoga class yesterday. It’s hard, but super fun with yoga! I’m going to keep on doing yoga every Monday!
I’m waiting for my last class of the day now, we’re going to have a critique in my photo class. Here are some beautiful photos from my beautiful campus! Pretty nice place to wait for a class
I listened to P3 online this morning. Felt like I was in Sweden! I always listened to P3 every morning at work. I miss home a little bit today. My family, friends and my cats. And during the weekend my best friend back in Sweden gave birth to the cutest little girl!!! I’m so happy for her and I can’t wait to see them when I come home.
This has been a nice weekend with a party, Farmers market, shopping and Cheesecake Factory. And the weekend isn’t over yet, it’s only 10.30 am
We had a pizza party in the lobby at Beachwalk last Wednesday. Not only did I get free pizza when I was in the lobby, I also got my mail. And in the mail was a letter from University of Hawaii. I was so surprised when I opened the letter and found out that I got a scholarship!! Thank you University of Hawaii!!
I was planning on buying something fancy to myself to celebrate so I went to the bank to deposit the check. But could they give me the money? No. I had to be their customer and have a account there, and as I mentioned earlier in this blog I have my account at Bank of America. And they don’t have that bank here in Hawaii..
They told me to go to Walmart since they cashed checks. So I went today. I was going to cash my paycheck from GRCC at the same time. But could I cash my checks there? No! I had to have a state ID to cash the checks there… So I now have two checks that I can’t cash..
At least I got a nice exercise walking to Walmart today. I also started of the day with a delicious grapefruit and a mango. And right now I’m just hanging out at the beach, so I can’t complain
I also got Swedish chocolate (I have no picture proof of that since I ate it all right away) and coffee this week since one of my friends here have her friend from Sweden visiting! It’s weird but at the same time nice to be able to talk Swedish to someone here.
My presentation in my class yesterday went very well so I know that you had your fingers crossed for me, thanks for that!
Here are some thoughts about getting a bank account during your GAP-year.
I got a Bank of America account in Auburn. It worked out well when I lived there. But now when I’m in Hawaii it doesn’t work out at all since they don’t have Bank of America here…
I can still use my Swedish credit card but it’s easier (and cheaper!) to have a bank account in America when you pay the housing here at Beachwalk.
I had school all day yesterday. I did some homework when I got home and after that my friends and I went to Mooses for tequila Tuesday
I’m off to school soon, we have a critique in jewelry class today, wish me luck
It was a while ago I posted a food-picture, so here it is That’s my dinner/lunch from yesterday.
After school yesterday I went to the grocery store with my friend and bought some food. I also went on a walk and saw the sunset. Beautiful!!
And another thing that happened yesterday: My friend and I booked a trip to Kauai We’re going there during spring break
