Happy Valentine!

Me and Kristian had actually decided to not give each other anything for valentines day this year. But that was not what Kristian had in mind obviously!
I had class today from 8-12 and got a phone call whilst in class, and since I didn't recognize the phone number I ignored it as I always do. I forgot all about it until 2.50 pm when I was getting ready for my next class that started at 3. I was curious and actually called back the number. And a man told me there was a bucket of flowers down stairs in the reception for me. Lucky me!! The reception closes at 3 pm so I manage to be there just on time! I was soo surprised!! Thank you Kristian<3 And now I feel bad about not giving you anything.. Love you xx BY THE WAY, Kristian just bought his tickets to Australia and will arrive the 6 of June!

Mi casa

So this is our apartment! Christin and Eivind has the masterbedroom. Haven't taken any picture of that, but they have a bathroom and walk in closet inside their room. It is a pretty good apartment! Having a good time here. And we're living on the 2nd floor, so no animals (cockroaches, spiders etc.) is making our life's miserable.

My room is really big, as well is my bathroom! It is a BLAST having my own bathroom!! And our view towards the pool is not that terrible either. Now I have to get ready for Jan Erik's birthday party tonight. It will actually be my first time out, like nightclub out since I got back here a month ago. Sick of the Gold Coast... me? Not at all. xx

Mimi's back!

I'm back! Finally came to an decision to continue this blog. Almost forgot all about it! Doing a subject called 'website design' this semester, so this blog would be used for experiments, exciting! And for everyone who wishes to read about my life, I'll try update as much as possible.

I arrived the Gold Coast on 16 January, so I have been here for exactly 3 weeks now. Super weird being back here after 9 month home in Norway! Been soo nervous about leaving Kristian, family and friends.. but I'm actually doing much better than expected! This time I'm NOT traveling home to Norway before January 2012.. OMG!

For this semester I am living with Christin and Eivind in a two bedroom apartment inside The Reserve, which is right next to uni (will post photos). I know both of them from where I grew up in Norway, so we are having a pretty good time as flatmates. For next semester I'll be moving into a one bedroom apartment as Kristian will be moving in for at least 3 months!! So excited to finally have him here with me. He will arrive early June. I REALLY hate this long distance relationship we are having again! But I'm pretty sure we will survive these last months ahead of us, and then NEVER again. Mum, dad and my two youngest brothers will be visiting here in December! That will be so nice, I am really struggling with the thought of being away from them for nearly a year.. From 2008 to 2009 I was 8 months here without traveling home, and that was hard.

I haven't done much these 3 weeks. The first week I used to move into the apartment, and get all uni stuff sorted out. Been doing a lot of homework and reading. But I did celebrate Australia Day that was on the 26 of January, and this weekend I went south to NSW to a place called Evans Head. Me, Jan Erik and my new friends Shanna, Claire, Tenille and Mason. That was so much fun! Click on the pictures for a larger view.

Yesterday was my first tanning session since yeah.. march last year! So I got pretty sunburned.. that is the third time in my life that has happened. I NEVER get sunburned and I used really hurts. One of the pictures above is showing some of the redness on my back. It is CRAZY. I hate being so white and norwegian right now. Think I should tan on a regular basis from this day on!
