Hello hello dear readers,

Let’s start this post with a little announcement; We got an apartment for next semester!

Me and five other girls have been looking for a place for a while, and now we finally found a place that we all agreed on. It’s a six bed, three baths apartment like 10 minutes from our school. Perfect! They are all juniors so next year will be their last year here at Wentworth, which for me is really sad!

For me, it has been great living on campus my Freshman year. I’ve met so many people, not only in my building but also from hanging around campus all the time.

If you want to, you can get housing at Wentworth all four years. The pros about that is that you don’t have to pay for the months that you aren’t here, like the over the summer. And of course that you are close to school all the time. The upperclassmen housing here is really nice, so I understand why so many people chose to stay. All the girls I’m going to live with has been on campus until now, but they wanted to see how it felt living off campus their last year. These girls are the ones I hang out with everyday, so when they asked me if I wanted to live with them next year I said yes. We’re going to have so much fun! The area around our school is packed with college kids from all the schools around here, so there’s a lot of places around here to live at if you for some reason do not want to live on campus.

As I said in my previous post, me and Mary (which is one of the girls I am living with next year) are going to the Celtics game on Thursday! Apparently we did a good job looking at houses with him so he gave us free tickets to the game. I have zero homework or tests right now, so after I post this blog I will go with my other friend Brianna to the Prudential. It takes like 7 minutes with the T, but the weather is so nice today so I think we’re going to walk there.

Here’s a picture of Bri, Abby, me and Tori on our way to the hockey game two days ago. Wentworth won 4-1! These three are just some of the many people I’ve met on campus. The all go to MCPHS pharmacy school which is right next to Wentworth, and we met in the cafeteria. Glad we did! 12767781_10207594394211904_759987863_n

SNOWDAY

(This post should have been posted two weeks ago, I forgot to post it)

Heeeello, hello!

Forget what I wrote about the weather in my previous post. The snow is pouring down now! The school was closed yesterday because of the weather so we got an extra long weekend, but I’m not complaining! The cafeterias in Beatty and MassArt were still open though, and since I didn’t have a lot of homework I spent most of my day hanging with my friends and eating food… A good day in other words!

I’m pretty sure that all of you know that this past Sunday was SuperBowl Sunday, which means that about 90% of Americas population watches a football game. I watched my first SuperBowl with my friends who has an apartment not far from the school. I knew that football was a big thing over here so I actually watched some tutorials of how to play before I came here in August last year, ha ha. The guys still had to explain some things, but at lost I wasn’t totally lost!

Here’s a picture of my friend Eric on the day it started to snow. We built a snowman on the quad!

Mary and I went to my first basket ball game ever on Thursday. It was a home game and Wentworth won. We got tickets to the Celtics game the 25th from our realtor! More about that in the next post. Have to go now!

HELLO!

What is up with the weather here?? It’s February and 57 degrees Fahrenheit outside (which I guess is about 15 degrees Celsius for my dear Swedish readers). I went for a walk during lunch today in only a t-shirt and I got sooo hot. I’m not complaining though, I love it!

I only have one class on Mondays which is between 9am and 10am so I went to the Nike store at Copley with a friend after my walk and now I’m back in the library working with a drawing for my graphics class tomorrow. We’re working in a program called Revit which is really fun, and I feel like it’ll be useful for the future since it’s about creating and changing drawings. Very good things to know if you want to work with renovating houses!

Tonight is rugby practice! It’s supposed to be inside but I think we might go outside instead. I’ve been doing a lot of running lately to prepare for the season. I mean I can’t be inviting every single person I meet to our games and then be out of breath in like 2 min. That’d be pretty awkward, haha.

It’s only one month and 10 days to my 21st birthday today! WOHO! It’ll be on the Thursday of spring break, but I haven’t decided yet if I’m staying in Boston or not. I mean a trip to Florida is always nice, right? I really want to go to Texas and Tennessee at some point. And Maine!! Texas and Tennessee because they’re so American, and Maine because it seems so beautiful.

OK enough for today. Bye!!
