I got a C on the test and I have already moved out of my apartment. So much has happen since last time I wrote! I passed all exams and managed to finish my first year of school without any re-exams. At the end of the semester this year I applied for a job and I got it! So no more school for me! And I have also moved closer to my work to a place called Surte (about 15 minutes from Gothenburg).
I miss America and sometimes I think that I should go back. Maybe not to Hawaii or Auburn but to some new place. I haven’t travelled for over a year! I could not afford when I studied so the student life in Sweden wasn’t for me at all! But hopefully I can save some money now when I work so I can go on another adventure soon
Just finished an 8 hours assignment!! Finally! A hole day to write the answers to two questions, it will be easy I thought. I will finish it in 4 hours and then I can go home. But no! It took 8 hours!! I’m so glad that it’s over!!
I don’t want to think about any philosophers, individual rights or the state of nature ever again!! I really hope I will pass the test, or else it’s a re-exam in December..
But some good news too: I signed the contract for my new apartment yesterday! I will move on December 15 and I will live just a 3 minutes walk from the school! That’s perfect!! I can’t wait until I get my keys! I will post pictures as soon as I move!
Until then I will post some pictures from the Halloween weekend
So the first week in school I was like “what is the teacher talking about?”. I didn’t understand anything!! But after a while I started to understand some basic ideas of development, the industrial revolution and how we consume our recourses.
And after a lot of studying I finally understood the big picture of what the teacher was talking about. I did well on the first test and apparently I did good on the hand in assignment too, because I found out today that I got an A!
I’m so happy about the result but I also feel the pressure to keep up my grades in all the other courses now. As one girl said today: I can’t go up from here, I can only go down..
But I like to think of it this way: I started at the top and hopefully I will stay here
And if I don’t I will not feel bad. Because my goal is to pass all the courses, any grade above pass are only a bonus. And this class we have now is really interesting. So even if I don’t get an A, at least I enjoyed it.
School is finally done for this week and now I’m going to enjoy the weekend. Happy weekend to you all!
It’s getting cold! I miss the nice weather in Hawaii.. But I really like my course, I have change my mind about political philosophy. It’s interesting and I really like the teacher. He speaks very good English and he doesn’t use power points. I like that a lot!
We’re going to have a seminar on Friday and we have to hand in a paper to. But it’s only one page so it’s not so difficult.
Last week I found out that I can use my courses from America into my program here! So I don’t have to go to school during the fifth semester! But I think I’m going to use that semester to do an internship. The question is were I should do the internship.. Any tips??
My first course at University West is finished. We had our last test last Friday and I think I passed
I really love the people in my class, the school and the city. But I really think the course was difficult. I hope I will be able to pass the next one!
We’re starting a new course on Monday about political philosophy. And I know nothing about political philosophy! What is that??
Sometimes I really miss the school in Auburn and the school in Honolulu. The classes I had there were way easier than these ones! And the weather was better It’s so cold in the mornings here now..
I’m going to look for an apartment in Trollhättan next week. It would be really nice to live closer to the school so I don’t have to spend two hours in the car every day. Specially when the winter is coming! Speaking of winter is coming: I’m going to watch some Game of Thrones episodes now
I got an A on my first test!! I’m happy, but maybe not for long. More assignments and a presentation is due on Friday! And I’m really struggling with this one. I don’t understand what I should write about and I have to write 2 pages.
And even if I can figure out a way to write 2 pages I don’t think I will be able to talk about it in front of the class for five minutes. And I procrastinate! I should be writing but instead I’m writing on my blog.. And play wordfeud. I also check Instagram and Facebook all the time..
Keep your fingers crossed on Friday, I’m going to need it!
We had our first exam last Friday. I was so nervous!! I didn’t know what to expect from the test at all. But so far so good.
We are starting a new chapter in the course now with a different teacher. And today I found out that we have two online assignments, a written paper and a presentation due on Friday! I’m going to be busy!
