Reaching New Lows in Bergen

Don’t worry this short blog isn’t going to be as much of a downer as the title suggests. The new lows refer to a new favorite pass time…hitting the electric beach. Yes, all of you that know me gasp at the thought. But, it’s snowing and I am as white as a bed sheet. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I write this because I would like to apologize for all those people in the North West that I hassled about trying to be tan. I understand now. With that being said, I only once every two weeks so it isn’t excessive.

When I am not baking myself, I am hanging out. I just finished my last course of my masters yesterday. I think I pretty well nailed the test which is a nice way to end my studies. It makes me start thinking about doing a PhD but then I wake up and realize that I should really get a job. I have this next two weeks off so I’ll be doing a combination of sending out my CV, writing cover letters, and doing a little work on the thesis. The original plan was to spend these two weeks off in Berlin. But, I like Bergen and I have some nice friends here in the student dorm. You can see a picture of two of my dormie friends below. You’ll notice we’re soaking wet. Adverse weather conditions don’t deter Norwegians from going out on a Saturday. They’re hard core, thus us international students must follow suit.

After Bergen, I’ll be off to Italy for a week with my friend Leif. (See big sunglass day below for a reference.) Look for the next entry as it should be exciting and a confirmation of my safe arrival back to the states. Sending Viking love your way…

Saturday night with Rui and Ana
