Today we decided to explore some more shopping by taking the bus to south Seattle!
however it was more difficult than we thought, reason...we waited at the wrong bus stop!
here both bus and light rail use the same space! we had no idea so we stood above ground for 30min in vain!
other than that it was actually easy as the bus went straight there!
i bought a few things, but i found so many, it was difficult not to buy them to be honest!
I want to buy whole Victoria's Secret! i already bought stuff but i want more!!!!! ^^;;
Anyway after spending most time there we headed back downtown and out to the Space Needle again.
Next to it there is a glass museum we wanted to check out as they had closed last night when we got there.
it was awesome! it's amazing what that man can create!
After that we went back downtown, and walked down to Pike market and went back to starbucks, i bought a cup for my mum and of course a coffee.
For dinner we had some Mexican, we shared one dish, it was huge! we couldn't even finish it!
wonder how one person is supposed to eat it?!
Tomorrow is our last day here, we leave for LA in the evening!
i liked it here, besides evening time, it gets kinda unpleasant with the homeless and so on... people start fighting etc!

Today i went to the worlds first Starbucks!
it's located in downtown Seattle, in a tourist district! in all it was fun~
also...no matter where you go, there's always a starbucks!
Then again we are in the city it was born, still I'm surprised there aren't many other coffee places around!
Woho~ i finally got to go to a real VS store!
and i loved it! why don't we have it at home in Sweden?
in the end i bought 2 bras, and in NYC i will get body lotion and underwear! ^^
It was a good day!
it's nice to be in Seattle, however it's sketchy at night!

Today i finally got a hair cut! good bye split ends! hello fabulous ^^

Happy day! tomorrow we are off to Seattle!

My friend sent me a few texts last night. She made me so jealous!
Guess where she was...Tokyo Dome to attend Arashi's concert!
She has seen them twice now!so unfair XD
I'm happy for her and thankful for the photos she sent me!
Also she told me she bought a towel ^^
What can I say, but most of my Canadian friends here comes from smaller cities... and all of them likes country music and now, so am I!
I really got into one musician, Chad Brownlee. He's Canadian, ex-hockey player!
I really like his music, I got to buy his cd before I leave Canada!! ^^
So before I go to bed I just wanted to share some of his music....
I'm sure I would NEVER ever have found him unless I would have come to Canada!!
Day after you

It has been 15 years today, i cannot believe it to be honest. 15 years has passed since one of the most beloved people left this world. My mother's aunt, Berta.
She meant the world to me!
It's so weird though, it all happened so fast, you were healthy and suddenly you were gone.
Just a few weeks before it all happened we, mum and i, took her out shopping and she bought a pocket calendar for 1998, but she never got to use it. That was end of November 1997!
Back then i could never imagine she'd leave us.
As both grand parents on my mothers side passed away when i was a toddler, auntie became grandma.
I loved going to her house. I rather spent time in her house than going to our own whenever we went to my mothers hometown.
My mum never understood why i always wanted to go there instead, but what can i say, one of the best people in the world was there!
I remember the day we found out that she'd been taken to hospital, i thought it was a bad joke, and i hoped for her to go home as soon as possible. But she never did.
Mum took me to the hospital and i saw her lying on a bed in this big dark room all alone, with this horribly ugly pajamas on.
She couldn't move, nor speak, she was just lying there.
I think she was in pain, and i still wonder how someone could go from being so healthy to being like a vegetable.
Time passed fast and i never had the time to really say good bye.
I also remember the day she passed away, i was so angry with my mum for not showing up at school as we had a Christmas event.
I was so angry until i saw her sitting with her head down in the kitchen table. That was when she told me...
All my anger turned into confusion.
I didn't have the time to really say goodbye. I never got to say how much she really meant to me.
But i guess God wanted it differently, in away it was goodbye, but i will see her again. Not on this earth but i will see her again!
Today is dedicated to you, Berta♡
I carry you with me everyday in my heart♥

SIZE MATTERS ^^

Today i have eaten lots of get better stuff, such as chicken noodle soup, cough drops, medicine, ginger ale... And my roomie kindly went and got me a hot chocolate!
I really hope all this will help me getting better!
I don't need this cold right now!
I have other things that are way more important!!!!!!
Like tonight, an all study night!
Tomorrow i have another exam!
Wednesday, 12 December 2012
Today is a special day! Final one in a century! It's the final one i will have in life i suppose!
Today should be celebrated some how, but unfortunately i have to study. And I'm so sick, my head won't stop spinning!
I hope i can make it for my final tomorrow. I should have passed consider the final is only 20% of my whole mark.
Also North Korea destroyed today by shooting up their stupid missile in the sky! Of course they just had to choose today!!!
Anyway back to my studies~
Tuesday, 11 December 2012
Today i went to Walmart, got Canada dry ginger ale, cough drops, and some bananas and bagels, i should last until we leave for Vancouver! ^^
So happy that Sara could take me as i can't go tomorrow evening!
Anyway should study a bit as i have a final tonight.
I asked for a nicer weather, by that i meant warmer...
Sadly i did not get what i wanted!
I went out grocery shopping this morning, what can i say but i thought my nose and fingers were gonna fall off! It was cold into my bones!!!!
Guess the Saskatchewan winter really arrived!
Monday, 10 December 2012
I'm coughing and it feels like my lungs are about to explode!
One of my roomies just went to get me a hot chocolate, the other one told me to ask the third one for a Ginger ale pop as ginger is good for the throat!
It sounds crazy to me but just got it and hope this Canada dry ginger ale will save me!
Got to be able to get through this week!!
During the afternoon i started to feel weird, and now it really feels like I'm coming down with something, i don't have the time to be sick, as finals starts tomorrow!!
Gonna try to sleep now and hope i will feel better in the morning!
Sunday, 9 December 2012
Tomorrow my first final kicks off, not really but the first one during finals week!
I'm not too afraid, as i have prepared for the last couple of days.
The one I'm most concern with is the one on Thursday and Next Tuesday, the 18th.
So far i have gone to the gym and just threw in some laundry into the machine..
Time for studying!
Saturday, 8 December 2012
Just came back after watching the movie called Chasing Mavericks, I liked it.
I knew nothing about this, and I guess the people who does might have a different opinion, however I thought it was a good movie!!
I got to be honest, the reason why I even found it was because of Gerard Butler!! ^^ And they showed it at the Rainbow theatre for $4.5. Spent a good Friday night ^^
Chasing Mavericks is based on the life of surfer Jay Moriarity. It chronicles his quest to surf the big Mavericks wave in Northern California, and Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler), the local legend who takes him under his wing in order to train him to survive it. In the course of Moriarty's training, the two surfers form a unique friendship
Jonny Weston as Jay Moriarity
Gerard Butler as Frosty Hesson
Elisabeth Shue as Kristy Moriarity
Abigail Spencer as Brenda Hesson
Leven Rambin as Kim
Taylor Handley as Sonny
Scott Eastwood as Gordy

Today me and two Canadian friends took a road trip to a neighbour city called Moose jaw. It's about 35min away.
First we went sightseeing in the Moose jaw tunnels, very interesting i have to say!
Then we headed for lunch and after that we went to the mineral spa! ^^
It was so nice! I wish it was located in Regina!
Anyway we had a great day, now time for some studying before bed, I'm exhausted!
Thursday, 6 December 2012
I have had one since i was little, and even though I'm not in Sweden, i was able to get one ^^
I got to keep with the tradition, here they also have a 32day one, it last until New Years day, but i stick with mine - until Christmas ^^
I just got the grade for my paper, i donno what's wrong with that prof.
It feels like nothing pleases her, unless you write it the way she wants it!
I think it should be objectively but no...
I just donno~
Anyway as long as i pass i will be happy i guess.

Stupid now i can't concentrate for my exam, i just want the surprise ^^
My presentation for Small Business Management is done - Yay!
We did better than i thought, still not too pleased, which means I'm not sure about our grade!
Anyway this class is over, now focus on the final.
