The Mountains of Photos I promised on the last post

Okay, okay so i finally got around and kicked the butt of my lazy self and is going to be more active now. In and out of WordPress, that is. So: three weeks into life in Uppsala, and things are getting both more frantic and more lax, if that makes any sense. Ive been looking into a couple of trips that i could take for a cheap-ish price, and at the same time trying to cut down on food. Well, the spending on food, anyway. Ive been munching on a lot of potatoes, brocolli, carrots, eggs tomato sauce and pasta lately.

Oh, so much pasta.

Anyway, new goings-on and things on this side of the globe:

Signed up for a couple of ‘gasques’ (formal dinners) with the ‘nollning’ (the medieval stuff youve seen me run around in) and my nation.

I started a breakdancing course. Which is awesome

Also still ploughing my way through my coursebook. Which is less awesome.

I washed my bedsheets yesterday

Fell down from my bike.. rolled like 4 – 5 metres, relatively unhurt. Was pretty exciting actually.

Starting to rehearse for a mini SPEX ( skits and stuff) tomorrow with the nollning.

Made some sushi the other day

Made some pasta the other day. Every day, really.

Got a weird rash on my shoulder.. think i got bit by something(s). Hoping it will go away.

Starting to get a little homesick.. for friends and family. And a set, structured, uneventful-except-for-choosing-what-to-eat-with-alex-before-monday-night-handball-training lifestyle.

Sigh.

Bought some postcards! But have no idea how much or how to send them! And being dumb i wrote all over the card leaving no space for the stamps. DURRRR

Hahaha.. so as you can see, life is GOOD here, so ill sign off for now. The next half an hour will actually be devoted to uploading photos! Best choices from the last three weeks.

Note To Parents: I notice there is a lot of party photos.. but please realise the best time to take photos is when having fun at parties and such (not all the time of course, that i dont do), and not when studying (which i do do). Thank you very muchos.

There. All done. Took about an hour longer than i thought, but i got there. Kudos to yours truly!
Now im going to bed.
Buenas Noches!

No, im not dead.

Hey sorry i havent been posting a lot, been busy with my new life and stuff.

But i will post up mountains of photos soon enough to make up for it.

So for now heres just what i wrote in Frankfurt airport as i was almost missing my flight:

I woke up this mrning with the sun in my eyes.
I looked out the window, and the world was beneath my feet.

For the first time, finally, i think it hit me: What have i got myself into?

Im sitting here in Frankfurt airport watching all the shops slowly open their stalls and shutters, watching some strange forms of alien people talking some strange, undecipherable, alien language.

“Wie sp├Ąt ist es, bitte?”

“Wo ist terminal A?”

I Stare at the guy quite blankly.. he should know better than to ask me.

Im asian. Duh.

Maybe i should buy some postcards.

Deeeeeeeeep.
