So as I said: I really, really, really enjoy my time here in York. But… Did I mention that York has some HUGE and absolutely disgusting spiders!? Last week Sofie and I got a heart-attack when we found a spider right above my bed. It was nothing but enormous, and I had to sleep with Sofie for the night because we didn’t catch the it. I can’t remember the last time I have slept so bad, haha. The next day we cleaned the whole room and I bought anti-spider spray… No way I will be sharing my room with that spider for the next three weeks 🙂
The peak of the week:
When I fell in love with this red suede jacket! Whatever negative vibes coming my direction in the future, will be swept off as long as I’m wearing this love <3
Downside of the week:
Analyzing Shakespeare in English Language classes…. Sigh, it’s so hard to make sense of. Even though there’s a lot of beautiful sentences in ‘Othello’ by William Shakespeare, I’m pretty sure Shakespeare will never be one of those books I read out of pleasure. Desdemona, Cassio and Lago must wait till I retire and have lots of time to figure out the meaning of “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.”
Thought of the week:
Enjoy your life. Sounds really cheesy, but it’s true. When you’re away from home, you realize how lucky and privileged you are in everyday. I must say I’m really pleased that fried food, lots of (HUGE) spiders, and cold showers aren’t a part of my everyday life back home in Denmark 🙂
Meal of the week:
The worlds best salat from Wagamama. Warm chili chicken salad was beyond delicious!
Laugh of the week:
When Emma (our host mom) told Alex (our 13 year old host sister) to go get her shoes on, because they had to leave for school. It was Alex’s first day back at school and she was really tired, so when she came into the kitchen in some way too big boots, Emma looked weird at her shoes and asked “Alex, what are you wearing? That’s not your shoes!” Alex had taken on my boots and she didn’t even realized, because she was so tired! Hahaha, Sofie, Emma and I were dead laughing.
Song of the week:
“Lush Life” by Zara Larsson!
Time is running so fast in York. In two days we have only a month left here! I must admit that the first couple of days in York was really overwhelming with the new family, school, and a whole new daily routine. I’m the kind of person who absolutely love the daily routine, and I think that’s why I always find beginnings so hard. But here I am, three weeks later, embracing the new and loving my new English life. With the old buildings, small streets, and the beautiful riverside York is nothing less than breathtaking and I love York more and more for each day.
On each street corner in York you can for sure find a small and adorable café. Bill’s is one of my absolutely favorite places to snug up with a good book, a cup of coffee, and a warm scone with jam and cluttered butter.
However it hasn’t quite been the weather for snugging up inside a café yet, considering the weather has been bloody (becoming truly British as you can see) gorgeous! With only a couple of rainy days, we have been beyond lucky with the weather. When packing back home in Denmark, I nearly left my sunglasses there, because I was sure I wouldn’t get to use them at all here in the UK. But oh well even the British weather can surprise you I guess 😉 I must say I’m really glad, that I eventually brought my sunglasses!
