What up peeps?!
It was overall a good week though: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were mostly spent on assignments and getting stuff done for school. The constant rain made it hard to get excited about anything, so when the first rays of sunshine showed up on Wednesday, I decided to take a break in the middle of the day and just go out on a run because let’s face it: by the time my time in Bergen is over, I’ll be Vitamin D deficient. So for now every time I spot a ray of sunshine, I’m running out of the door and standing under it.
Thursday morning while I was sitting in the school’s cafeteria trying for yet another day to solve this mystery that is my programming class assignment, my friend Valeria came over and asked if I wanted to go to the movies with her and some other friends that night. I had a couple assignments due the next day, but I honestly hadn’t taken a break and gone out in a while so I felt like I deserved it. I ended up spending a few more hours doing work and at 8pm we made our way into the city. It turned out to be a girls’ night out. We were speaking and laughing so loudly on the bus that we literary got yelled at and asked to “be quiet because we’re in Norway” by an old Norwegian lady. On the other hand, a few people around us were laughing at our stories with us, so we were entertaining after all.
We ended up watching Gone Girl, which is a fantastic movie. I had wanted to read the book for the last year or two but I constantly kept hearing about the ending that made everyone feel weird about the story so I held off on reading it. And now that I’ve actually watched the movie, I’m like WTF. Seriously, what is wrong with those peeps? Also, FYI movie tix in Norway are around $20, and I thought $12 was overpriced in some areas of the states…
This morning we surprised that same friend, Anna, with a birthday brunch. We had some delicious dorm made pancakes which was a good change from the regular routinely food that we’ve all been eating for months around here. Made such a perfect start of Sunday and an end to this week.
