Valborg

It feels like a Sunday today and Monday tomorrow. I really don’t want to go to school but it is my last chance to study structural engineering in school so I have to be there. Even if the lecture starts at 8am and there are no trams going to school. The bridge by the stop is being renovated so no trams or buses go to school until Monday, and no car traffic can go there from now and until December. Crazy!

I am glad tomorrow isn’t a Monday though, but a Friday. This time of the year we have so many different holidays. Like today was ay 1st and I am not sure exactly why we are off. I think it’s because today is the demonstration day. But that is so old school. I am not complaining though, May 1st is a good hangover day because yesterday was Valborg, one of the biggest party days in Sweden.

After two hours in school yesterday I had to do laundry for four hours. I was so tired after that that I took a two hour nap and met up with Chad and two of his friends to watch the Cortége. It was a blue sky but cold, almost two hours of watching 49 carriages was a little bit too much. But it was still nice.

We were in a hurry after that to get to Dzejna’s birthday dinner in Linné. No trams or buses were in service up on the mountain where Chalmers is, because of the parade, so we had to take a huge detour with several changes before we finally came to the restaurant. We were a big party so I actually didn’t have time to talk to the birthday girl, but I had a nice evening anyway.

Today I was a chauffeur and driving Chad around to different stores. Because of the demonstrations going on there were more or less no buses or trams in service so it was impossible to get around without a car. I bought a birthday gift to Linnea for the triple birthday party on Saturday. I hope she will like it.

Mom drove me home and on the way we did some grocery shopping. I made a chicken casserole I probably haven’t made in two years. But it still tasted the same as back then. It’s good to know that cooking is like riding a bicycle.

I probably should have been in bed already, but it is too hard when it is light out until like 9pm. And it is getting worse every day. I miss the 8pm sunsets in Cali.

 

Yesterday I got my Course Permission Codes for two of my four classes. I won’t need it for one of the other ones and the fourth is coming any day now hopefully. I will also get that money mom’s friend wanted to lend me tomorrow. That means I will apply for a room on campus in SLO. Yay!
