Today is study day! I have my last final on Tuesday so I’m going all in on chemistry the next two days. I’ve already had my exams in English, math and building construction so I’ve basically been living in the library the last couple of weeks.
Yesterday I took some time off and went to a Swedish Christmas market at Tremont st. with my friend David. We were determined to buy tons of lussebullar (which is like a sweet bun with saffron) and ginger breads but they were sold out when we got there… We looked at the other things they were selling and listened to a Christmas choir until we both felt like it was time to go home and study. It’s pretty hard to get a true Christmas feeling when it’s like 15 degrees C outside and the sun is shining, but we tried our best!
At 7pm it was time to meet up with the rugby team for some skating in the frog pond in Boston common. We all met up at the leopard statue and took the T together to Park street, which takes like 15 min. We used to skate at the lake when I was a kid, so I wasn’t that bad. Maybe not NHL material, but not far away! After 1,5 hours on the ice we decided to go get food, and then we took the T back home again.
After my last final on Tuesday I’m going to start packing the things I have to bring with me back home. My flight is on Wednesday afternoon, so I got almost a whole day in Boston before I head back to Sweden for winter break. (I know that you’re reading this mum and yes, start packing one day before is enough!) It feels both great and a bit sad to go back home. I’ve missed my friends and family but I’m also going to miss all the friends I have here. College is so much fun and I wish that everybody would get the opportunity to study abroad, and if you can; DO IT!!
