A new suitcase

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

I know it’s seven weeks until I leave for Hawaii, but Kohl’s had an amazing sale that I couldn’t ignore. Samsonite suitcases for 50% off! I needed a new suitcase, I might as well have it already. The one I brought from Sweden is a 28 inch and it was too big. I couldn’t fill the whole thing before it reached the maximum weight of 50lbs, so now I bought a 24 inch which will be much easier to handle when I go to Hawaii. I bought it in a very nice teal color and I really like it. I can’t believe it was only $160 with tax. And that’s not all, I also got a check with $45 on it (for every $50 spent I got $15). I can buy whatever I want in a Kohl’s store.
I guess I have to start packing in late December, in about a month. If everything doesn’t fit I have to have time to send some of it home. This time I’m not gonna start packing as late as the day before departure, I will start early.

So my trip to Kohl’s was my big thing today. I’m still feeling really crappy, but that sale wouldn’t go on for many more days so I had to get out of the house. On my way home I tried a Caramel Brulée Latte and it was pretty good. If I have a few extra calories to consume one day I think I actually might choose that one over the Chai Latte. But the Chai one is still my favorite though.

In the morning today I talked to Johan, the guy I will write my thesis with. We have to find a company so we made a deadline for tomorrow morning when we would have a letter ready to send out. I finished my draft after one hour. It’s very nice that when I decide to do something, I do it well and fast. I was actually pretty satisfied with what I wrote.

Now I think I actually want to go to bed. It took all my energy to drive to Oceanside, well first to Encinitas, but they didn’t have the one I wanted there, so I had to drive up north again for another store. I really hope I feel better tomorrow when I have to work.

It’s been very nice with a four-day weekend, I just wish I weren’t sick and had to stay in bed most of that time… I get a new chance on Thursday with a new four-day weekend!
