Första Dag Av Klasser

Today is the first day of classes. Which means goodbye to a social life. Nah, that isn't exactly true. Apparently, from what I've heard through the grapevine, is that Swedish schooling isn't overly difficult. Right now I'm crossing my fingers, praying the rumors are true. Let's face it: how many actually want to spend their entire time studying when in a foreign country? I know that's what I want to spend my time doing... Luckily, I only have one class today (actually, this week. And I think for the next week as well?), and it's only two or three times a week. Not bad at all, I would think. Plus, it's International Marketing, so the content the syllabus informed me I will be learning looks strikingly similar to stuff learned last semester. Come on, easy class!

Last night Madison, Tommy, Rachel and I went to see The Hangover in the Downtown cinema. Let me just say: Sweden's theaters are top-notch. Not only can you reserve tickets online, but every ticket (bought online or in the cinema) corresponds to a numbered seat. Which means it's not first-come, first-served. Which is awesome. The movie was hilarious, and we had a good time. We also hit up a small convenience store (but not a Pressbyrån) and bought a crapload of candy and pop for cheap. I got to practice some Swedish with the cashier, which was tramautizing for everyone involved. Also, for the record, Sweden does not have Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (or at least from what I could see). Major bummer for me, I think.

That's pretty much about it for now. On my way to the kitchen (across the hallway) to make some lunch (ramen, or ham sandwich?) before I head to class at 1:15. I shall see if these rumors about a so-called "easy curriculum" are true. Cross your fingers for me.


  1. I hope you'll enjoy your class, son! We were greeted with a diagnostic test early this morning!

  2. What happened to the days when you used to care about an education and making something of yourself?!?!? C'est la vie......(sorry, I don't know how to say that in Swedish!).
