ouch

The things a gal will put up with from cute shoes is astounding. Some of the most physically painful moments of many females lives are those spent attempting to break in new high heels.


They may look cute and innocent but looks are deceiving! I have no idea what compelled me to wear these babies to the welcome dinner last night and clubbing afterward because I officially can barely walk.

Disgusting I know, what kind of sick, twisted person puts a picture like that on a blog?

ME

mainly because I want you all to feel my pain hahah

I am actually rather proud of myself because I put up with alot of activity in those shoes before finally breaking down. A trip to Norrkoping (sister city of Linkoping) was made..

..A trip to Maxi (kind of like Walmart) was taken on as well where I stocked up on food to cook with as well as some other stuff.

  • tomatoes
  • eggs
  • mushrooms
  • nectarines
  • bananas
  • museli
  • bran flakes
  • milk
  • etc etc

AND I TRIED LICORICE ICE CREAM!!!


alright if you want to get technical it was licorice and lime sorbet–yeah sounds atrocious but tastes delicious. and that is really all that matters :)

So you see that alot of walking occured in my life recently (not to mention the at least 10k that we walked in the morning trying to get some bike problems sorted out in another section of town) so I would say that my poor little feet deserve a break..After our run today.

Despites my feet trouble the welcome dinner was fun! We were seated by people we didn’t know which I couldn’t decide if I liked or not, and we given a bottle of wine, an appetizer, dinner, and dessert. The food was alright I suppose.

The more interesting part of the evening revolved around singing. Come countries got up on stage and sang a national song (and no, me and the one other american girl did not partake). Germany took over the entire stage–there are at lease 130 of them walking around campus.

There were also rules–I am in Sweden dont’cha know– like to bang on the table and scream and then yell BORDSSKAL! and drink. Another one was to bang on the table in the same fashion and then scream tempo and then the number of a song from the booklet that we were provided with. I was astounded about the lyrics of the songs that we were expected to scream at a school function!

Astounded but totally pumped. Here is an example:

Cindy’s into whips and chains, kinky, kinky

Finally got it out it was red and sore, God damned son of a bitch never fuck no more

Seriously picture a room of 300 people singing things like this. We are so careful of what we say in America (at least superficially) in public settings but here they are so open and it is fun because many people think or say these things in private settings but not at anything endorsed by the school. Teachers and other public figures act like they are not saying or doing things that we all know everyone does so it seems like in Europe they just cut all the bullshit and let it all be out there.

HMM..

food for thought.

I am going to go eat breakfast now and rest my poor little feet.

In Ellen Pompeo’s kitchen hahah I wish

Alright, this is the official call for voting disco dancing into the olympic games. Particularly Euro disco dancing. I consider myself to be a relatively avid dancer, but I had to peace out early (1:30 or so) because I was just TOO DAMN TIRED.
notice the cute couple to the left COULD I GET ANY CREEPIER. i dont care. they are sweet hahah

Granted, today WAS another busy one so I have a right to be worn out. It began with a failed attempt to sleep in, followed by finally paying my rent, going to the shopping center with the girls, finally purchasing essentials (yes, more essentials) like a loofah, a hair brush, an agenda, and some chicken and meatballs.

ACTUAL FOOD exists in my life again and I cannot wait to eat it. Not that I haven’t been absolutely loving my diet of crackers and cheese and licorice. How can someone expect a candy fiend like me to eat anything else when the candy aisles here are beyond insane?! They even have black licorice ice cream, but I have yet to bring myself to eat ice cream when it is cold outside. Probably should do it now before it gets any chillier I suppose.

I was unable to actually eat any other of my new purchases (except some candy on the bus of course) because some boys were making German lasagna for a little crowd of 12 people so of course I couldn’t turn that down. While I was getting ready to leave everyone in the world got on skype so I got to talk for an hour or so. Then dinner, pre party, and disco around ten! We picked up quite a few friends on or walk there, growing from nine people to 15..quite a dance circle. I dont know if any of you have heard of Swedish House Mafia but people around here go crazy for it..you should have seen the dance floor when that baby hit the airwaves.


The music was so-so but give me anything with a beat and of course I love it. My crazy dancing tactics were on the tame side of this dance floor so you know I was loving it. Two-or-so hours in and I was a sweaty mess, and ready for a break, which eventually turned into talking to people and getting tired SOOOO I joined another girl who was ready to leave on our trek back to Ryd, the student housing.

I have really come to treasure my relaxing time when I get on the computer, creep on the ABQ facebook goings on and drink my stress relief tea. Tonight my tea bag had the loveliest little words of wisdom.


But yeah, it was a nice thing to read :)

Miss you all!
