First four weeks in school celebration!

September 14, 2013

August 16 was my first day, with orientation at school, and classes starting on August 19. The crazy thing is that I’ve already done one quarter of the semester now since the last lecture I will have is right before Thanksgiving (in the end of November)! The finals are the first week of December. So, let’s check out how my first month in school has been, with pictures from my phone/instagram account:

schoolMy desk at home in our studio (we think it sounds better calling it studio instead of office…hehe).

school1First day of school – orientation day so no classes.

school2Walking on campus.

school3Doing homework for one of my New Media classes. We were gonna create a card with information about ourselves.

school4Studying history one morning while drinking coffee (as always).

school5First student in the classroom one day…

school6Tried to study when a cat decided to be snuggly and spread herself out…hmpf…

school7 …and again. 

school8Music is so helping me out when studying. One of many hours I’ve spent at my desk. 

school9 One of the lecture halls where I have my humanities class (history). Here, about Ancient Israel. 

school10One afternoon at school. Studying for my first exam (which turned out pretty good, yes!).

school11 Again, studying for the same exam. Don’t know how many of these mind-maps I did..probably ten, because it was SO MUCH to learn!

school12Waiting for my individual conference with one of my professors in order to talk about my memoir. 

school14Waiting for one of my lectures to start.

school13 In memory of all the people who died, and their families, in the 9/11 attacks…

school15Yesterday’s lecture about an Ancient Chinese poem. Daoism it is.

I’ve also been hanging out with some friends, been out in nature some, eaten good dinners and lunches out, been swimming in the pool, done a little bit of shopping, relaxed at home, watched tv series, and plenty more. Since I’m not living on campus, and sort of have my own family life here, I don’t attend as many things on campus – good or bad…but that’s something I need to figure out to balance..

So it’s Saturday now, and we don’t have any specific plans more than going to Target in order to get some lights to put on our balcony, I believe. It’s way cooler outside and that made me pretty excited. It’s been pretty warm lately (80’s/25-ish or warmer). For my Swedish brain, it doesn’t make any sense since it’s the middle of September, the trees are turning their colors into fall, but it’s still warm like it’s in the middle of July in Sweden. It messes with my brain. Anyway.

Hope you will have a good weekend!
