Sorry blog for being a bit inactive this week but it has been a very weird week. I have had a very annoying cold, still have. And I have been busy with trying to find scholarships, unpacking and just doing stuff. I don’t even know, but I’ve been busy.
On Wednesday I went downtown and met up with Axel for the first time since November when I briefly saw him in LA. We went for a fika and it was so nice to see him again!
Thursday, hmm, nothing I think? Friday evening was movie night with Axel and two of his cool friends. We had dinner at Danilo first, the restaurant inside the movie theatre. And then we saw Mad Max. It was an okay movie, but it was kinda long. But it was a fun evening and I liked his friends.
I couldn’t fall asleep last night because my heels were itching from the blisters after diving and Stuff went crazy in my boxes in my room. I don’t know what she did but she made hella lot of noise and I couldn’t fall asleep until like 4am. I closed the door, I thought, but they opened it and I found them in my room when I woke up. Next time I will have to make sure that it is 100% closed if I want it closed, haha. Sneaky cats… Not always nice and cuddly.
This morning I had to set an alarm. Mom, Axel and I were going to Långedrag to watch the In-Port Race in Volvo Ocean Race. Oscar II’s Fort was only open to SCA employees and their family. So we got really good seats and could see the whole race from the cliffs. I have never been out there so it was the start on my #TouristInGöteborg summer. It was also nice to see part of the Gothenburg archipelago again.
It was a grey day, but not too cold, and it only drizzled a little bit so we didn’t even get wet. It was actually a nice day. The SCA boat came in second in the race today and third in the whole In-Port Race part of Volvo Ocean Race (6/7 in the big competition). Not too bad. The Crown Princess of Sweden was on the SCA boat today, pretty cool.
Älfsborgs fästning. I’m going there one day this summer :). Ostindiefararen Götheborg.
After the competition I was super tired, but I had stuff to do today again. So no nap for me. I got my transcript from Cal Poly today so I emailed Chalmers, but the guy who is supposed to put my grades in the system is on vacation until August 10. That’s not good because I need my proof of graduation as soon as possible so I can apply for scholarships, and it can also be problematic with CSN (financial aid) if all my classes are not there soon. So I emailed another person and I hope she can help me with this.
Then I also sent in my grades to the university application website and I hope I will get accepted to the German class. It can also be problematic since I don’t have any grades from previous German studies here in Sweden. But I’m sure that will work out too.
Lastly, what I’ve done today is finish the travel report Johanna and I had to write about this year at Cal Poly. It turned out good I think. And when that one is approved we will get the last piece of our grant from Chalmers, 2500 SEK will be nice in September.
And now I will install The Sims 4, cross my fingers that it works, and play some before going to bed. Tomorrow mom and I are going down to the harbor again to get onboard the sailing boats, that will be fun.
