Today felt like August all over again, but a LOT colder and with less stress.  I went to the train station and picked up Hannah, she’s from Purdue and is going to be studying here for the Spring semester.  We basically did almost exactly what I had to do on my orientation week, but hopefully with much more ease since I knew where things were and all that fun stuff.  The only difference is that she lives in the boonies by the science labs and stuff and I haven’t been over there at all.  We walked there and that was peachy, even though it was extremely cold.  Though I shouldn’t complain, it’s apparently -38F back home. Haha.

We even ate at Kebab House, which is the first place I ate “real food” at.  And iiin said kebab house was this group of Swedish kids and one girl had on a gothic lolita costume and her boyfriend(?) had on some…anime-character-ish costume and silver hair.  Basically, my senses told me there was an anime convention nearby and I had remembered that they have a convention called Uppcon or something?  Well, I looked it up when I got home, and ‘lo and behold, it’s this weekend.  I was pretty amused, though the site irked me with their dumb ads. “Pocky – we has it” and “Randomness – we has it”.  So sad. Sooo sad.

So, yes! I got home at around 6:30 or so and I think I got cold-burns on the back of my legs because they feel sunburnt. But it’s freezing outside and I’m wearing pants…so that obviously isn’t what it is.  Haha~

There’s already new people in Aleksandra’s room as well, they’re swedes…which is weird because I thought her room was furnished for exchange students. Hmm…

I should write in more detail, but I’m really tired and lazy…I’ll probably regret that down the road when I read this entry again. Oh well.


After class today I got a monthly bus card, since I have a feeling I won’t be walking or biking in ice/snow.  It’s a bit chaotic and I think the card will easily pay off itself. >>  So yeah, I got that down in town with Per and Suyin.

After that I met up with Ingrid and we got some food at Cappucino Cafe, since Linnea was full.  I had some yummy pasta with salad that I couldn’t finish cause my stomach was like aaargh. After that we went and looked for shoes and pants, I actually ended up getting a pair of jeans and black socks at KappAhl.  I really like that store for some reason, even though this is my first purchase from there haha.  The jeans were pretty nice, they fit nicely if I don’t gain anymore weight rofl.  I don’t have to wear a belt with them, which is so strange for me now haha~

After a bit of shopping we went back to Kantorsgatan where Ingrid lives and hung out a bit.  The girl in her room before left some clothes and stuff, which I took.  Finally someone who is my size? Heck yes!  She left rain boots of some kind that are luckily my size, a hoodie, a white H&M long sleeve shirt, and a super swedish shirt for a pub here called Harry’s, lucky for me there is a bar back at Purdue called Harry’s as well. Amuuusing~  So yeah, I snagged that stuff, like free thrifting haha.  But there were other things that she left that were just…weird…like a razor and uhh…what we think is lubricant cream stuff, we were trying to figure out what it was by reading the back and then we came across the word “kondom” and were like “OH MAAAN~ *washes hands!*”  haha it was kind of amusing.  XD

After that we watched Shrek 2 with swedish subtitles, because we could.  We were going to go to Värmlands and club for a bit, but it started getting pretty late and instead we tried to learn the Uppsala-nollning dance version thingy to Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance”.  It was semi-successful, we’ll have to observe more next time we’re out at a club. Or Ingrid said she may just have a friend she knows who knows it do it, and record it.  Then we’ll know, and we’ll rock it out too. XD

And to finish the night off I slid about a meter on the ice, without falling though, leaving a nice mark in the snow.  Oh man, it’s only November!!
