Finding new ways to postpone work

As a student I always look for ways to postpone my work, seeing as it’s a Saturday night, it isn’t very difficult today…

I went to ASDA today with my friend Inge and managed to carry all my stuff on my own until I reached the top of the stairs and couldn’t open the door without letting go of my groceries. I head knocked my way in to find my flatmates laughing at the fact that once again I’ve managed to by a ton of stuff when going to ASDA. I would have been fine hadn’t I decided that I wanted Chardonnay today, and that I need wineglasses too.

It was nice getting out of the house for once on a Saturday. Considering the fact that I went to bed half past eleven last night and slept for 14 hours (think I needed some sleep), I should be well rested…

This week I decided to make latin a bit easier for myself and made up a game where I write down all the latin words I’m supposed to know and the English equivalent and have to match the two together… That is what I’m supposed to do now, but instead I find myself sorting jelly beans.

Next week is readers week so I’ll be spending most of my time catching up with all the reading i have for classes. But on Wednesday we’re all going down in to central to protest the fact that the government want to cut funding for schools with a lot, which will mean something like 90% less funding for my school… And if anyone has the same concerns as my dad: I’m not going there to through rocks, we’re in England not France…

I think I’ll go make myself dinner and be all sofisticated and drink some red wine…

Halloween is the best holiday ever!

Since the Bop is the Halloween-themed celebration at my uni, we celebrated on friday. We decided to go all out on Halloween this year, considering the fact that we have an American in the flat it was pretty easy. pumpkincarving, candy-apples, scary vodka-jelly, decorations and “all out” when it came to costume.

We filled the common rooms with friends and had a fun evening before we continued the night at the Bop at the student bar. There were many who had taken it even further than us and some that didn’t dress up at all… Here are some pictures from the night:

I coloured my hair… again!

Had a bit of fun yesterday and coloured my hair again. Well actually Sam my flat-reps boyfriend did it.

I’m so looking forward to Halloween now, it is going to be so much fun! Going as a vampire this year as well, but going all out this year with a bit more gothic look…

My room

So I’ve been meaning to upload photos of my room and the common rooms, but I haven’t felt like everything has been in its right place, until now. Enjoy the show!

It’s been a month

I’ve been to uni for over a month now, and I’m finally settled in. Lectures has started and I can’t believe I find some of this interesting, I love it here! I am so glad I chose London over Bergen, we’ve even got a lot of sun, believe it or not.

Freshers week must be one of the most exhausting things I’ve ever been through, considering the fact that alcohol is so cheap here and that you can buy hard liquor from 18… You know where I’m going with this… Back to the exhausting part, I think it might have been worse than the senior prank weeks back in Norway, but the same amount of fun!

Our flat is finally filled up by six people now as well. We have; Vlad: The Romanian, Me: The Norwegian, Lydia: The Brit, Alex: The American, Amar: The other Norwegian and last but not least our wonderful flat-rep Hannah (oh and her boyfriend Sam: The craprep!).

I’ve made a ton of friends  and we are already a gang that have become close. We still love to meet new people though, and we usually do that @ the Bop on Fridays, which takes place at our Uni bar “The Union”. Theese nights all have different themes, so far we’ve had: Back to school, Cowboy/Indian, Traffic-light next one is Geek night and then we have Halloween.

We have already managed to put up Halloween decorations. This is what happens when you have an American and two other bored girls when the guys are out one night…

As I said school has started now and the workload is building up. Even now I should be writing a paper on internet-resources on Abrahamic Religions for my Introduction to Religious Studies class, but I needed a small break. Oh by the way, the paper is due tomorrow… You all know how much I love to postpone things…At least I’m over half way there, I just need to find one more web-page, shouldn’t take too long.

Even thought my flat usually goes out on Fridays, we’re a fairly quiet gang, we usually end up watching a movie on Saturdays, which is fine by me, that means I can stay in my PJ’s all day! Bet my mom would love to find that out… It’s when we start games of Hallway-ultimate-frisby, Hallway-rugby-football or a towel whipping contest we spend most of out energy, and it can get quite violent. I don’t give up easily and neither do the others, so we usually end up bruised and hurt all of us. But it’s still worth it because it is a lot of fun!

Our trips to ASDA (like Wall-Mart) is a lot of fun too. We always end up having to wait for the bus because of either traffic, or the fact that we just missed a bus. I always end up buying more than I can carry, thankfully the guys in our group of friends are gentlemen so they help me. My goal this Monday will be to carry all my groceries  on my own!

We also have a day a week when one of us in the flat makes dinner for everyone else, I made Norwegian meatballs, they turned out ok (…I think).

Guess I should get back to working on my paper now… I’ll try an update this blog more frequently from now on. Miss the people at home, will try to  stay on Skype more as well…

Hi, I'm Cat! I'm 19 and I used to live in Norway. Now I'm moving to London, and I'll be staying there for at least three years, if not five. I'll be taking a BA Combined Honours in Classical Civilisation and Theology & Religious Studies. Consider this blog as a travelers journal, London seen from the viewpoint of a student and a foreigner!
